Enjoi 8 inch
Indy 139
Spitfire 54mm Fourmula Four 99duro
Half Spitifire burners hald Shake Junt bearings
Es Accel OG
Word Is Bond stickers (represent yo)
A friend of mine broke my old deck trying to fs board a steep ass handrail, was caught a bit off guard with that, and some dude was selling the Enjoi deck for really cheap it was used only once so fuck it. It's been like 10 years without riding an Enjoi board and I like the company so I'm stoked on it, I just have to get used to the smaller nose and tail compared to the previous board I had before.
Also, got some Element Chad Muska wheels becasue they were really cheap and Spitfires are really hard to come by without paying like 60 dollars for them. Hopefully the transition isn't too rough. The Argentinean economy is absolute shit currently.

I believe the dimensions are similar, same wheelbase but not the exact same shape.
I don't work until tuesday but I'll measure it then and let you know.

Pretty good man, the shape is real nice. Comming from a og baker, this has some more concave. Also the nose is a bit longer then the tail. First chocolate for me, for sure gona check out another one when i need a new deck.

Yeah I'm stoked on it. The stability on the 169's is insane. This is the first time I've ever skated anything wider than a 149 and I wish I had earlier.

I decided to live dangerously. I want to give PS Stix one more shot and I wanted to step back down in size to 8'.

Quasi 8' - Love this shape. Overall length, and nose/tail length are perfect. That said, I'm just still undecided whether or not I like PS Stix boards.

I don't if this is the right place to ask and I'm not sure if I can explain this correctly but here it goes:

I really love the overall shape and dimensions of dlx brands, most of the boards I've ridden have been the classic 8.25 krooked decks. But at the same time I have noticed that a shorter boards fit me better and deluxe boards are quite long for me. I've been thinking down sizing maybe even going for a 8.00 but the problem comes that the decks I had don't feel the same when they are smaller because most of the time they are a long as the bigger ones and if I buy a 32x8.12 it doesn't feel the same.. So do any of you know is there possiblity to have like a 8.25 scaled down to an 8? So that all the dimensions scale down proportianally? If this some thing that is even possible? I'm ready to compromize on the lenght of nose or tail but would not like to.

I don't if this makes any sense but would be cool if did

Crailtap, Primitive, even the Polar 8.25 shape might be your best bet. Short wheelbases with smallish lengths.
Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

Seeing this skated with the colored ply showing a bit makes me love the graphic even more. Does this measure/feel ~1/8" smaller than the listed size like most PS boards?

But I'd like it to be like an 8.0 not 8.25.

I'm now skating a Palace Lucien Clarke 8.25 and I think its 32 in length.. The shape is in overall great but it just feels a bit chubby.. Maybe I should just try and 8.00 to see how it feels and all this is nonsense.

Edit the board has quite long nose and tail so the wheelbase comes really short

It does feel pretty close to the 8' it is listed as, measures just a hair under. PS are notorious for dubious sizing. The other thing that surprised me was that the tail is a normal 6.5ish and the nose is 7. It's been my experience with PS boards over the years that the smaller you go down in width, the tail and nose length shrink with it.

So far, so good, it's just that PS boards start to feel soft to me after a short time.
