I usually skate my boards backward
you are the devil?
I used to use my nose for regular tricks that didnít involve flipping and for all fakie. I stopped and at first it was weird but itís much easier to set up for other tricks.
Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

Sweet setup; post up if you ever do a run of 8.5s. I'm always down to support pals

i checked the website and he has these in 8.5 for sale

I checked the first line of text under the image and it's an 8.5
Yea I don't see any 8.5s on the site nice try

Thanks for checking it out.  This was a small run and I sold through 8.38 and 8.5 super quick.  More stuff on the way hopefully sooner than later.

I've actually never understood why the tail of a popsicle is smaller and shorter than the nose.  It would make sense to have more board on your tail.  I think that's why the trend the last 5 years has been these "full" type shapes

I'd assume it's to compensate for the inequity in control with the non dominant foot, i.e. you have more surface area to land on for a switch tail than a regular tail to make up for the the fact that most skaters can't "stomp" as hard with their back foot riding switch as they can regular, if that makes any sense.

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.

And not a single legitimate slide or pop mark. Barely illegitimate ones. If every board tells a story, I feel like this one is probably in Portuguese.

I think he mixes it up. It definitely feels more like 8.25" with real estate in the middle, which is good for me. I don't think I'd like the 8.75" version. About to go session it at the plaza to see if i can relearn some #fliptricksafter40
