I only skated real boards for years but then at some point the narrower ( 8-8.18 ) boards started having tapered nose/tail and I couldn't deal.  I haven't looked but are there full shapes in that size and would that get rid of the taper?  Basically I just want a big fat rounded nose and tail on a 8" or just over deck.

A Roll for Rob graphic on an 8" shape with a 14" wheelbase (what Rob and I always preferred) would be amazing. There was an 8" shape that was maybe 31.5" long a summer or two ago that was amazing but it seems like that shape has an under 14" wheelbase now which is kind of weird. like 8"x31.5" or 31.75" Full shape with 14" wheelbase would be the unreal.

Are there any flat concave DLX shapes? Like Girl/Choco flat.
Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

Krooked have always seemed the flattest out of DLX boards. Real's Low Pro are supposed to be a flat concave. I've had it. Not sure where it compares to Girl/Chocolate, but I definitely noticed the difference in the Low Pro compared to Real's R1 construction

8.25*32 with 14.38 wheelbase is my favorite right now

please change the wheelbase on the 8.06 x 32 to around 14-14.25 please. i would skate nothing but that shape for as long as I could.
Please don't do this. Deluxe is the only company that makes a 14.38 wheelbase on a 8ish board. I get that you like the shape, but there are plenty of boards that are 8 x 32 with a 14 wb out there.
was that switch ollie in a turban at 1:18 ?.....trend watch

Make the 8.12 shape more often, those are the best boards but are a bit harder to find. Just keep that one exactly as it is.

Late to the game. Next paycheck I'm ordering these two boards

Haven't tried the dingbat board, but I like that its 31.5" in length. Beres board is awesome.

Ideal board would be in between these two in length and width. i.e. W8.5" L31.75"

Recently switched from deluxe to crailtap after 5 years just becasue they make a W8.375" L31.75" and its difficult to find wide boards that arent super long. If AH made a board like that I'd probably never ride anything different.

Real used to do a series of boards that were specially marketed as being a mellow concave, I forget the name but it sounded super cheesy to me. Someone remember?

8.25 with a kinda slim rounded nose and squarish tail, 14 - 14.25 wheelbase.
Im thinking of ordering the Dingbat shape, if anyone has a pic of the top gripped, that would be cool to see.
I think it's 8.38, that shape in 8.25 sounds great.

Also, anyone try the krooked/antihero cruiser shapes? Do they still work decently for doing tricks?

Anyone skated the DLX 8.28? I think it is only on Anti Hero boards.

I skate two of them, love the width, hate the WB, it's 14 (just like the eagle logo 8.375) I think I mentioned earlier wanting an 8.28 with the 14.3 WB, I'd be in lurv.

I had a Busenitz in that shape that I loved. Honestly, I've gotten used to the 8.06 and the 8.06 Full Shape I'm riding now is pretty great, but that 8.12 had a nice feel, even though it was verging on "magic carpet ride" with 8" trucks.

Anyone ride the 8.06 full?

I've the 8.25" full and it honestly feels like an 8.3 to me, wondering if the 8.06 full will net a more 8.12/8 ish feel? without the taper?

Eyeing this one for the hell of it:

8.06 full was pretty normal to me. felt more like an 8.00 polar which was fine for me.

I've been riding the 8.06 full for a few months. It took a minute to get used to the way the nose looked and felt but I like it now and the extra meat does make the board feel a hair bigger.

Please never stop making twin tails. The one I'm skating right now is amazing. Love not worrying about nose and tail. Just grabbing my board and going. Love it. Gonna be weird to back to a "normal" board.

An 8.5 version of the 8.43x32.57 14.75/15" with low pro, and a full twin tail. Would pay extra $$ for that.

I'm running the Mike Anderson twin tail Zig Zagger shape and it's pretty damn fun to skate around on.


I'd love to see this shape come back.

I can't really feel the difference between low pros and regular real decks when I stand on them, but for some reason I'm noticeably more consistent when skating low pros, so much so that I'm usually willing to downsize from 8.5 to 8.38 if the 8.38 is a low pro. This could all just be in my head, but I'm gonna go with it and cop low pros whenever I can.

i got 2 ishod boards that have twin tail. the one with the silver holographic-graphic-graphic.
i only got the first one to use as a wall board but then remembered those new deal siamese decks from back in the day so gave it a go.
my initial impression was not good at all. really weird to get into noseslides, really weird for switch tricks, especially the ones that need subtle pop-like sw nose wheelies on low stuff. after 3 sessions though, i have started to really dig the shape (bar those switch tricks) and 2 days ago the second one came through the post. i am now worried that i might get too used to this and that it will be difficult to get back to "normal".
the fact that its symmetrical is great though. very convenient

I'm riding that same board. I can't do switch for shit, so I don't have that problem. I'm also worried that I might get too used to it though. Haha
