What's up with DLX WB measuring? I have the 8.5 X 32.5 GT and the sticker on top says 14.38 WB, but...it's actually 14.75. Not a problem because I love the board, just wondering if anybody else has noticed this?

Unfortunately, one side effect of having so many similar shapes (multiple 8.5s etc...) is that they sometimes get mis-stickered at BBS.

So sometimes, a box or two of the 8.5" x 32" with X-wheel base, will get the sticker for the the 8.5" x 32.5" with Y-wheel base.

We are aware of the issue and try to be as accurate as possible, but sometimes minor mistakes are made.

Sorry bros!

Is the Grosso 9.25 board the same dimensions as the BA one? if not what are the exact dimensions of each.

Grosso shape is much longer, if measured flat it's almost 33.25 vs the ba is 32.4.
15 in wb for the grosso vs 14.4 on the ba.
Grossso tail is almost 7 inches and the ba is 6 5/8?
Not the best at reading a tape measure but roughly that's it.

Had that happen to me with Baker a few times, never DLX - it's a bummer, especially if you had to order it on or offline, I'm sitting on wrapped deck I'll probably never ride because of it; hell even SW botches there WB measurements on anything over 14.25.

Any other boards in the same shape as the 8.75? It was a dream to skate.

Just bought and started skating a fairly new Anti Hero
full shape 8.5 board. It has a more squared out nose and tail
similar to the FA camp boards but with more of a mellow concave.
Overall a solid shape.

The board prior to the full shape I skated was an Anti Hero 9.2 Cardiel Oro shaped board.
I compared it to a Girl CK Phawt shape deck (that fuckin snapped the first day)
and the two shapes were practically identical.
I absolutely loved the shape and overall quality of the board.
Ended up masking off everything else but the horseshoe on the graphic
and painted it black. Decided to retire the deck due to hefty stress cracks and ended up
hanging it on my wall.

That Cardiel 9.2 shape is called the huffer. That is the best shape ever!! I wish they made it more often. Crazy that Cory Kennedy skates them so much that girl finally made the shape for him. He gets all tech and gets all tranny on that thing. I wish I had another one.

Hell yeah, that shape is golden. Seems to always sell out
any season they drop. I'm tempted to buy another girl ck board
but I'm still traumatized by the shit quality of the last one.

Antihero classic eagle navy (8.5")? :D

It's funny you say that, I'm skating the 8.5 navy right now.
Just ordered the white 8.75.

Isn't the navy classic eagle the board he mostly skates?

Yeah in the camp pain video he clearly skates the navy one.
It would be sick if dlx came out with an 8.6 with the same 32.5 14.25 wheelbase
Like the navy.

Looked for, found, and skated this classic football shape by Prime skateboards.
Not a bad shape, the quality of the wood isn't bad at all either.

Kind of feeling the need for some wheel wells... like the Kyle Walker board... but on the 8.5" full shape


And double drilled wheelbase options...

I wouldn't mind wheel wells in "regular" sized boards, not a bad idea

Got an 8.38 Ishod twin tail for cheap thanks to the shitty bathroom tile graphic, but Im stoked to try it out. The 8.38 Full is my goto standard I try to size up everything else with, and I really liked my last 8.30 twin tail despite some slightly smaller dimensions. Here's a dimension comparison for those who care lol

8.38 Full / 8.38 TwinTail
Tail size 6.53 / 6.65
Nose 7.03 / 6.65
Length 32.43 / 32
Wheelbase 14.62 / 14.5

That seems pretty nice. Would you happen to know the dimensions of the 8.5Ē twin tail? 🤔

From what I can find online, the length & wheelbase are the same as the 8.38, and maybe the ends are like a hair longer. They have a sticker on the shrink wrap that shows the exact dimensions so if you can find one in person you'll be able to know for sure

Realís site says 32.2Ē for the 8.5Ē but doesnít list the other dimensions. Being in Finland I donít think itís very likely Iíll find this board in a shop. Not even sure if Iíll be able to find it online in some place with suitable shipping. 😕

The full 8.18" Full is actually 32" (sadly) not 31.84"

I've been tempted to pick one up as the 8.06 full seemed really nice and I'm a fan of the full 8.25"

Woooo. 8.43x33 with a 15" wheel base. I think that's the same as the binohero shape. Stoked.

Damn, it seems we're torn between the same boards. That 8.06 shape (not full) looks nice, but I'm afraid it'll have some weird small tail or something. Anyone skated that one?

The 8.25" full feels like an 8.3" to me but without the longer WB I desire. By that logic an 8.18 might feel like an 8.25 but with the longer WB. I missed out on the SW DD sale when they had the 8.18 full up.

Ishod twin tail slick is amazing! The regular 8.3 one.
Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

I'm skating the 8.06 full right now and it's perfect. I've skated the "regular" 8.06 before and you're right, it did have a small tail that bummed me out.

I went to a local for new wheels (nothing I wanted) and caved on the 8.18 full walker. Gripped, it really does feel like a regular 8.25" (it feels/looks bigger than the 8.25" foundation I was riding (too mellow and had a weird nose shape, really narrow halfway but not pointy) but smaller than the 8.25" full which feels like an 8.38.



Now to figure out what wheels to slap on.

They are the normal board construction, just with a bevel on the bottom edges.

that's what i was wondering. i've never seen that on a board before, and i was wondering if it was an ode to something done long ago. looks like it'd be a great boardslide to feeble/hurricane enhancer.

8.06 full over the non full everyday!!!  I had stopped skating real until the full came out as a few years prior they all started seeming to have really tapered tails and I couldn't deal with them.  The full is perfect!
