Spitfire Ishod radials 99A started as 54mm
Bones Swiss

How's the concave on this? Really want it but hate steep noses
if it's anything like the two other PS 8.5s I've had, it should be fairly mellow

I saw your mom do a ollie to cooch drop straight down the big black pole, it was gnarly. she defiantly shut that shit down.

Let me know how you like that board. I would love to give Toy Machine some money but the last board of theirs I had was absolute dog shit but I know they recently mixed it up.

Nah it isn't - I tried those but I like mellow stuff the best. It's nice to be able to pick out boards from the whole lot so I can grab the shallow stuff

Gotcha, I ride a lot of their deep concaves, but recently tried one of their “matador” concaves and it turns out I really like that shape too. I am thinking of doing what you did and getting some of those two shapes made in bulk and selling off the ones I don’t ride to local shops

Noticed you've been on the Clearweathers a bit. How do they fit? Usually skate authentic or era pros, but I've been interested in trying a pair out.

You really can’t go wrong with any politic board. South central wood is the best.

The fit is about the same as the era pro but the shape of it feels more sturdy on the upper part of my foot.

That's a handsome set up. Bonus points for the Manderson spits. How are you liking them? Always wanted to try some wide wheels and ill always be quick w/ giving MA more of my money.

I don't think body size and set up size correlate really. I'm 6', 200lbs and I ride 7.75s. I'd ride a 7.5 if I could find one over 31.5" long.

Are you riding the Mike Anderson SFWs? I loved that wheel. I had the same size but I never see them in shops anymore.

Yea you're right, its just probably easier for you to change it up if you wanted is all. I couldn't make an 8 or over work if i wanted. I tried a bigger Bam board a long time ago... I couldn't anything with it, too heavy for me. Immediately went back to a Shortys mini haha
