Title: Egg Shaped Boards
Post by: hobochimp on June 23, 2018, 12:30:53 PM
I've been really curious about "egg" or football shaped boards. For example the Heroin Big Egg, or the Cardiel Antihero. They seem like they'd skate pretty well as all around boards for both street and tranny. Just curious what peoples thoughts were on them and how they skate. Also if anyone knows any other companies making these shapes I'd be interested in seeing more decks of this style.

I'm skating the Baker Impact Stripe egg right now and love it.  I've got the Heroin Big Egg lined up next.  Let's also not forgot that these are early 90s shapes, so make sure to set it up with some wide trucks and 48mm wheels.

I've been really interested in this 90's football shape trend. Alex had a good looking shape on his promodel for 917 and Blind made some reissues of the 90's grafics but the boards were pretty overpriced.

yeah the cardiel and kennedy are the same shape.  these boards are 9+ at their widest point, but with the strong taper at the nose and tail, they don't really feel that wide.

You just made me look at crailtap.com for the first time in years. That powerslide board is 9.25 wide and the wheelbase is 13.875.

I just skated the Big Egg and now I'm currently on the Cardiel.  The exact two boards from your initial comment.

The Big Egg is great but ultimately I wasn't feeling the 14.25 WB so I switched to the Cardiel which has a 14.75 WB and a more traditional popsicle tail. 

Both great boards, just depends if you like a long or short WB

So I can see it on my phone if you quote it or did you edit something? I thought maybe it was a mobile issue.

Anyway I wanted a football shape too, after watching Chico Instagram clips on repeat.

Really liked this deck so waited for Memorial Day sale, and had some fresh ace 55s to pair with it I bought a while back. Deck is a Creature ever slick 8.88 and almost feels like the 55s are not wide enough, but havenít skated because I just recovered from a gnarly heel bruise and wanted to skate my regular setup again first

I just set one up with Venture 5.8s and they are perfect. Ace 44 will be slighty short but the nose and tails taper down to about an 8.2ish  Ill have to double check. 55 will be nice but lots of wheels sticking out.

Edit: yeah 44s would be perfect. The board at the widest point is 8.75 but feels like a 8.25.

Yes, it can bite more the axles than usual, the board would be perfect with some 139.

The shapes on the blind reissues are really good.

Thereís really not much of a difference from shaped decks to popsicles to me (I usually go back and fourth with no problem) but Iím also not very good at skating so someone really good might have a harder time getting adjusted.

Someone said they donít like that the kinda are dsm wood but that shit is great. China maple is just as good to me. They press one at a time so there no issue between shape being slightly off if you buy the board more than once.
Dwindle wood is legit and fine.

Re: polar football;

Hopefully someone that had/has it jumps in (shape looks sick)...Iíve seen people run all different size trucks on it. I think you could be really close with 144/148s. I think itís around 8.25 across the trucks

I liked the Heroin Big Egg the most and I'm really tempted by the 10" one.
[close]

I’ve been considering the 10” for a while, but I was unsure about trucks. I have 169s and a .875” gap sounds big even for an egg shape? I dm’ed Fos and he said he runs 169s with it, but kinda wishes something like 189s existed. Anyone have any personal experience with this deck?

I have been riding the bigger egg with 215s for awhile now. Dremel’d wheel wells to loosen the 215s so they turn proper.

I tried 169s and it seemed wrong.  I tried ACE66 and they were probably the closest to flush,  but something about the 215s seems so right.   Kickflips still work but treflips with 215s and my wide 56mm ojII Combo’s is incredibly difficult as are Nollie flips

I used Venture 5.2 low so itís 8inch truck and it doe not stick out at all. I just tried a 7.5 with those trucks too and I see no wheels sticking out either.
As for the polar football itís ight I hate it because of how steep the concave is but it functions just like a normal board really.

Bummer on the concave. I was hoping it was more flat like in 1992. Thanks on the Lotti info. I've got 139s (8.0) currently and wasn't sure if I'd be cool with them

I have a Polar Footy setup at the moment. I ride Ace 44 on it and it's perfectly flush over the bolts. But I lent the board to a mate who rides 159 and they stuck out, but not enough to matter because technically it was still flush with the widest point of the board, so you won't really have any issues pushing and kicking your axle.

Just want to note before you buy one though, compared to other football shapes I've skated, the Polar has VERY narrow, pointed nose and tail. While the overall size is pretty comfy, it's a bit off-putting IMO. Saying that I skate 95% transition and prefer fuller tails like the Blind FUBK reissues have.

You want 149s or 8.5Ē trucks on any egg shaped board between 8.5Ē-9.25Ē
I have every size truck and I really like 159s and 169s but 149s are the best size truck, a lil deck overhang of 3/8Ēth inch in each side is nothing especially with taper.
Just buy 149 Indyís and get some aftermarket bushings from Indy and size those puppies up with boards in real life at your skateshop, they will work on any board from 8.25Ē-9.25Ē- different sized trucks are a fucking conspiracy to make old men buy several pairs of trucks. 149s turn the best, silver, standard weight and height. This is not complicated.

i bought the gabriel rodriguez one and fell in love with the shape. wide in the middle, but with a teeny tail and nose so you can still pop hard? it's perfect. i just got a polar board that's pretty much the same and i'm hyped, i wish football shapes were more common.

For some reason Girl listed this as the Phawt shape but it's actually the couch shape which has the 13.875 wb.

Trying out my first egg, don't love the graphic but do love the shape (and the price). Got in about a half hour of flat ground today and I can't believe how good nollie tricks feel on this. Hoping to get to some curbs tomorrow, might switch the 159s out for ace 44s with extra washers.

you finally come to the dark side of old man/ big shapes? I rocked ace 44s on my 8.75 Chico chocolate board and it was totally fine. Itís going to come down to how much taper the deck has around the trucks (Chicoís has tonnes on the nose end). Do you have a pair of 149s on hand? Chico DM-ed me the other day and said he ran his shape with either 149s or 159s. BUT judging by his recent footage he could literally skate any setup.
Do you want stability or ability to flip the board more? Another slap trick is to put two washers on the inside of the wheel to push them out a bit further.
Iíd measure the width over the truck areas and then go from there 🤔
Thereís a guy in the big boy thread with 148s on a 9.25 girl and it looks fine

Yeah, 149s should do the trick. Itís 8.98 but probably only at the widest point in the middle of the deck. 159s would probably stick out a bit around the nose. Surely thereís a slap pal on here thatís set one up?

If you already have the deck why not just measure it? If not then approximate measuring can be done in an image editing software from a picture. Has worked fine for me at least.

You just made me look at crailtap.com for the first time in years. That powerslide board is 9.25 wide and the wheelbase is 13.875.


Anybody know what could be expected from that width + wheelbase? I dont have much experience with a smaller wheelbase, let alone a smaller wheelbase with that shape

Really curious about this as well. Saw that shape and was immediately intrigued. I wonder how it is to skate.

Also, anyone that's been skating the Heroin egg boards, what size trucks are you running and what would be the most reasonable size/brand to use? Are you using small or large wheels and how is it skating one? Are flip tricks harder or easier than you thought?  I would love some details. Super curious about the decks.

the Krooked HH is not a slick.

I've only used it to cruise so far, but despite measuring 8.38", it feels super tiny (I usually skate 8.6-8.75"). The width across the bolt holes measure to 8", and the widest point is in the middle. The nose and tail are pointy. I'd say this would be a great shape if you exclusively do flip tricks.

Had a few days off and decided to try this out. The wheelbase is crazy, but in a good way.
I'm riding 159's on it and it doesn't stick out noticeably. 149's would be ideal, but I didn't want to buy new trucks for such a small difference. I've only skated flat ground so far, but super excited to fuck around on this thing.

first impressions, I might have given myself a downgrade.
the only issue I had with the Guy slick was that the concave was super flat. Besides that I really liked the shape. This Gerwer has the smallest tail. All my flips have become flops. And it doesn't really seem like a slick. Whatever super thin layer of plastic that there is was torn through on the first boardslide and it's just wood underneath. Not a full slick ply like the Guy. It is really good for shuvits though. That second pictures makes it appear there is a huge difference in length between the two. Just an optical illusion.

I picked that one up. It's actually a 8.7.

better side by side top shot. there isn't that much difference between the 2.
I took a measuring tape to it. I measured width at the point where my axle nuts are. Not in the middle of the baseplate. I have it set up with Thunder 149s.

Front truck width: 8.5

I can't guarantee that the measurements given at skatepro are correct of course, but the only one in the bunch that was listed as having a 15" WB was this one that I was a little bit unsure if it was eggy enough to post in this thread - and the one with the least appeal to me personally anyway:
(https://cdn.skatepro.com/product/440/element-barbee-x-cliver-skateboard-deck-yn.jpg)
That one's listed as 8.75" x 32.5", and that graphic is also available on a 8.25" x 32.25" popsicle with a 14.25" wheelbase.

Anyway, what makes me interested in either the 9" Element or the Quasi Johnson is that I absolutely love my Polar football, and I had a PS Stix last year (a Pizza Uncle Jesse :-X) that had a sort-of-eggish shape that I really liked too. So I want to see how the PS works out with the full on shape, and I'm curious about adding just a little bit more girth to the setup. I skate a 8.375" usually but the 8.75" football doesn't really feel any wider at all (well it probably isn't across the bolts anyway).

I noticed some football/eggish Element Ray Barbee x Sean Cliver decks. Was never a fan of Element and I know they're not particularly high status on here either, but hey it's Ray Barbee.
(https://cdn.skatepro.com/product/440/element-barbee-x-cliver-skateboard-deck-wp.jpg)(https://cdn.skatepro.com/product/440/element-barbee-x-cliver-skateboard-deck-1y.jpg)
The one on the left is 9" x 32.75" 14.3" WB, the one on the right is 8.875" x 31.75" 14" WB. I'm actually considering the 9" one if I don't go for that Quasi Jake Johnson board.

Shape on the left is perfect, like the graphic on the right a bit more from nostalgia

This is, for me, the best board shape. I am skating a Sausage with the same dimensions, and have another one on backup along with a Cardiel football (also the same shape/dimensions). Does anybody else do a front tapered football with a 14.75 WB? I want to try a Phawt and I know crail wood is supposed to have gotten better but I am still skeptical.

Iíve had better luck with Girl phawt wood than cardiel bbs/generator. I like mellow concave on girl and Iíve had a couple old wood and one new wood and the generator and it really makes me think all wood is the same. Also could be wide boards last pretty long. Although I did just break a 10.5 scram generator deck that was a couple weeks old. Crail wood held up better or the same

I'm the opposite. Had a couple of new Crail wood boards and they were great for a little while but mushed out far quicker than BBS for me. I just fucked myself and got another crail board (Tershy 9.25") bc it was so cheap on BF... oh well...

I gave both my cardiels away, after skating them a little, both fun boards. Never fully figured out the best setup. I think 14.75 is too much for me. Probably had the most fun with 159s

"Not a need". Pshhh, how are you going to do your boy Ben like that?

Kidding, but on the real I would skate that.

I can't get myself to pull the trigger on a phawt. I'm not a board breaker and I love to run a board for as long as possible, but I'm a bigger guy and most non-Generator boards get soggy and pressure crack on me super fast. That being said, I am paranoid that AH is going to stop making the Cardiel football and thus feel like I need to keep my options open with similar shapes that also have a 14.75" WB.

Krooked Cromer would would pair nicely with 139s, maybe the AH black widow as well. I've been tempted to try one since I have some 139s just sitting around and I have come around to shorter wheelbases as of late.

Both of these suggestions are spot on. I had the black widow and fucking didnít like it, but I was really all over the place at the time with gear. The tail also wasnít very pointy if I recall correctly. I like the way the polar football is real pointed. I think someone said at the bolts itís 8.25....there was a Brian Lotti shape that Benson posted that was sick, smaller football.
Anyways thanks for the query, I have the most fun on 8Ē trucks, and like pointy shapes so Iím interested to see what comes out of this. My strong preference is for 14Ē wb as well.

I rocked a Krooked Cromer with some Thunder 149s and some Spitfire 80D wheels. I was coming off of a really bad back injury that had me off board for like 6-7 months. It was some of the worst constant pain Iíve ever had and it really fucked with my whole life. Needless to say I was pretty gunshy when I started pushing around again. Every time I went out on my regular board, I was so disheartened by how I felt. So I set up the Cromer as a way to not hold myself to any mental standard of skating. I would think ďIím just on a cruiser, so I donít even have to try or do any tricks and itís ok.Ē Before I even knew it a few weeks had gone by and I was rifling off Flatground tricks, cruising a bowl, hitting a bump to ledge... That setup helped me get back in the saddle so much that when I broke it doing some flip trick I bought another. Nowadays I skate my regular board again, but I have that setup (I swapped the 80Ds for some formula 4s) and still skate it a ton. I guess what Iím getting at with my long rambling story is; egg boards are fun as fuck & if you donít like it as a regular setup, they make great fucking cruisers. Cheers yíall.

That rules so much, your story got me psyched. I always feel like my best skating comes from situations like that, where I'm not putting pressure on myself, and I think egg shapes are good for being functional while still looking interesting. I am also just super into how pointy boards look.

You know, thatís a really good point that itís like a sized down Cardiel football. I had two of those Cardielís and although I liked that shape, and LOVED skating it around, flat ground 99% of my chosen terrain, was a struggle.

That Kelch is sick. 35th actually has a couple shop decks that look like they might fit (model below in football and assorted shapes, 14.5 WBs):

I don't have 151s, but with 159s I've always paired them with a ~9"-9.25" football to account for the taper over the trucks. You could also run them on an AH brown bomber, though with a 14.25" WB it might be too short.

The Cardiel/sausage/phawt shape is good but yeah, WB is like 14.75"-14.8". I've been skating a popsicle with a 14.25" WB and when I took the Cardiel out yesterday it felt so so heavy.

Thanks! Yeah the cardiel wheelbase is just too long. The 35th ave football actually looks great, though perhaps still a little pointier than I'd like but probably the best option so far. Just stumbled upon this too and it looks decent https://strangeloveskateboards.com/collections/boards/products/sean-cliver-birth-of-cthulhu-8-875-deck

The kelch is almost perfect, but at 31.5 14.25 its just a tiny bit shorter than what I'd like on a non tech fuckaround setup. 9 inch for the taper sounds like a good idea, though anything from 8.6 to 9 ish will be fine since I don't mind some axle sticking out.

I don't have 151s, but with 159s I've always paired them with a ~9"-9.25" football to account for the taper over the trucks. You could also run them on an AH brown bomber, though with a 14.25" WB it might be too short.

The Cardiel/sausage/phawt shape is good but yeah, WB is like 14.75"-14.8". I've been skating a popsicle with a 14.25" WB and when I took the Cardiel out yesterday it felt so so heavy.
[close]

Thanks! Yeah the cardiel wheelbase is just too long. The 35th ave football actually looks great, though perhaps still a little pointier than I'd like but probably the best option so far. Just stumbled upon this too and it looks decent https://strangeloveskateboards.com/collections/boards/products/sean-cliver-birth-of-cthulhu-8-875-deck

The kelch is almost perfect, but at 31.5 14.25 its just a tiny bit shorter than what I'd like on a non tech fuckaround setup. 9 inch for the taper sounds like a good idea, though anything from 8.6 to 9 ish will be fine since I don't mind some axle sticking out.

I actually held that Cthulhu board in my hands on my last shop visit before the issued the order for nonessential businesses to close. Its a really nice shape, and even though the tail tapers it doesn't look to extreme IRL.

If you end up getting that 35th football, post a pic if you think of it. I've been tempted by it but am trying to be frugal as possible given the current situation.

Anyone have any ideas for a good egg shaped board that would fit Thunder 151s well, wheelbase 14.3-14.5 ish, length 32-31.2 ish?

first impressions, I might have given myself a downgrade.
the only issue I had with the Guy slick was that the concave was super flat. Besides that I really liked the shape. This Gerwer has the smallest tail. All my flips have become flops. And it doesn't really seem like a slick. Whatever super thin layer of plastic that there is was torn through on the first boardslide and it's just wood underneath. Not a full slick ply like the Guy. It is really good for shuvits though. That second pictures makes it appear there is a huge difference in length between the two. Just an optical illusion.

How wide is the Gerwer at bolts? (+ same question for the Guy) Thanks.

(http://i.imgur.com/6U2jp48l.jpg) (https://imgur.com/6U2jp48)
better side by side top shot. there isn't that much difference between the 2.
I took a measuring tape to it. I measured width at the point where my axle nuts are. Not in the middle of the baseplate. I have it set up with Thunder 149s.
Gerwer:
Front truck width: 8.5
Back truck width: 8.25

Guy:
Front truck width: 8.5
Back truck width: 8.375

Both have 14.25 WB.
IĎve set up the gerwer today but with thunder 151s. Seems to fit it pretty perfect.

Any smaller egg shapes out there that I can use 139s with?
[close]

Krooked Cromer would would pair nicely with 139s, maybe the AH black widow as well. I've been tempted to try one since I have some 139s just sitting around and I have come around to shorter wheelbases as of late.
[close]
I rocked a Krooked Cromer with some Thunder 149s and some Spitfire 80D wheels. I was coming off of a really bad back injury that had me off board for like 6-7 months. It was some of the worst constant pain Iíve ever had and it really fucked with my whole life. Needless to say I was pretty gunshy when I started pushing around again. Every time I went out on my regular board, I was so disheartened by how I felt. So I set up the Cromer as a way to not hold myself to any mental standard of skating. I would think ďIím just on a cruiser, so I donít even have to try or do any tricks and itís ok.Ē Before I even knew it a few weeks had gone by and I was rifling off Flatground tricks, cruising a bowl, hitting a bump to ledge... That setup helped me get back in the saddle so much that when I broke it doing some flip trick I bought another. Nowadays I skate my regular board again, but I have that setup (I swapped the 80Ds for some formula 4s) and still skate it a ton. I guess what Iím getting at with my long rambling story is; egg boards are fun as fuck & if you donít like it as a regular setup, they make great fucking cruisers. Cheers yíall.
[close]

That rules so much, your story got me psyched. I always feel like my best skating comes from situations like that, where I'm not putting pressure on myself, and I think egg shapes are good for being functional while still looking interesting. I am also just super into how pointy boards look.

Both of these suggestions are spot on. I had the black widow and fucking didnít like it, but I was really all over the place at the time with gear. The tail also wasnít very pointy if I recall correctly. I like the way the polar football is real pointed. I think someone said at the bolts itís 8.25....there was a Brian Lotti shape that Benson posted that was sick, smaller football.
Anyways thanks for the query, I have the most fun on 8Ē trucks, and like pointy shapes so Iím interested to see what comes out of this. My strong preference is for 14Ē wb as well.
[close]

I remember seeing them in person and they're like a mini version of the Cardiel football, right. I love that pointy-noise, round-tail combo.
[close]

You know, thatís a really good point that itís like a sized down Cardiel football. I had two of those Cardielís and although I liked that shape, and LOVED skating it around, flat ground 99% of my chosen terrain, was a struggle.



And that comeback story is dope. Thanks for that

i have the blind Lotti reissue and love it with 139s
the deck is 8.125" at the widest and 7.75" wide above the axles.
tried to keep it era accurate, so i have it set up with Indy Stage VII 139s + A1 Meats 52mm 95a

Me too!  Really fun shape to skate. Mostly using it for curbs, but I can flip it fine too.  I put some thunder 149’s I had laying around on it.  I’m pretty sure that’s what Villani uses going off of his signature trucks.   The board tapers to 8.75 or just less at the wheels.  No more than a quarter inch wider.  I know a lot of skaters who like skating trucks a quarter inch narrower than their deck like a lot of the baker guys.  Easier to flip.  151’s would be an exact match width wise. I think I might try the smaller heroin fried egg board next.

I just got the villani board last week. Kinda look almost like a symmetrical egg shaped. 6.9" nose & 6.4" tail.. Primitive did a special free delivery to Malaysia so i jump on it. I got the Moebius Anxiety Man graphic. Goin on the wall, but i ordered another one from Primitive, to skate. I also grab 2 of his dragon ballz board which are also 9.125 from our local shop. I kept pestering them to bring in more shaped boards, and finally they did. They just shipped it today. Might received the package this weekend. Hard to get boards larger than 8.5" here in Malaysia.

8.875"x32.25", 14" WB sounds amazing.

Thanks! Yeah, I put the 159s up to it and didn't like how it looked. It tapers to like 8.6 over the back truck. Part of my thinking is that if Chico is skating a 9" shaped with 149s then that is what is up. I also prefer 149s in general.

Yeah Iíve had 2 set of Indy 149s and I just canít get into em. And I hate that I canít.
I can do marginally better on 159s. Doesnít make sense.
5.8s and thunder 149s are ok as well.
149s were the wave of the last 10 years and it bummed me out I couldnít stick with the times.

Ordered this Toy Machine egg a while ago but never set it up.  Had some extra trucks and wheels laying around so decided to give it a go. It's more football than an egg, and the camera angle has distorted it a bit to make the tail look much bigger, but in reality the nose and tail are very similar.  The nose is a bit pointier than the Heroin egg which is the last one of these type setups I did.  Top graphic indicates that it was made and screened in USA, but not sure which woodshop.  It doesn't have the same look or feel as the old Watson toy machines.

I really like the deck, but going from Ace 55s down to Thunder 151s took some getting used to on ledge/curb tricks.  I like how light the hollow thunders are, but still much prefer the turn and feel of the Aces.  This will remain a setup for when I just feel like dicking around.

I for sure want to hear how that set up skates. Really flip flopping on that or the polar football.

Thanks! I've gotten to skate it twice, so far so good. I was a little concerned about the short (13.875") wheelbase but it feels great and not at all cramped. If anything, I felt like I was rocketing a little less than usual. I do a lot of slappies and shove-it variations and it made those feel very effortless, in particular slappy crooks which got me feeling pretty juiced. I don't really flip my board much, so I can't really comment on that. Tried a couple heelflips and they felt no worse than on any other board.

The Crail wood feels good so far. I got a couple small pressure cracks already, but that happens super fast for me most of the time anyway. I'm curious to see how it holds up.

@OK, I'm sorry for my rant in the setup thread. FWIW I feel like the longer WB on the Polar (its like 14.375" or 14.5"?) would be weird. This (and my hating the last 14.5" that I set up) has me believing in the power of the short WB).

Also, @Kneebone, that Toy board is sick and I am super jealous! I tried to find that one a little ago but no dice.

I've said it on here before but this Send Help shape is my fave egg. It's 9 inches, which to me means it skates pretty much like an 8.5, and the nose and tail are almost almost identical, which is a plus to me.

I'm late coming into this thread so excuse me if this has been discussed but are there companies making eggs/footballs with flatish concave? I just was watching Love Child and all the boards looked so fun - maybe I'm wrong cause I wasn't skating in that era but they all looked really flat.

Also wonderin if anyone knows if there are companies making blank egg/footballs?

It's from the "black summer" series last year (at least I think it was last year). Heroin has an egg in the current line up called the fried egg that's pretty close though, just a bit wider.

Now I'm waiting for another egg on the way and I'll put the 6.1 on that one since it will be a little bigger.

The 8.75? My friend is on his second one and loves it. He normally skates an 8.38 popsicle and does flip tricks and ledge shit pretty much equally as good one both setups. I've stood on it and it feels like a great shape. I'd personally prefer it be 32 inch length though.

cross posting from some of the other threads, not the egg i had intended to buy, and much wider than i have ever owned or skated before, but i think it should be pretty fun.  it's super short in the wheelbase, and you can feel it as soon as you stand on it.  feels more like an early 00s 7.75" than a massive modern board

x-post big boards thread

I couldn't decide between a few decks so I had my friend pick, and this is what she chose. It's too brilliant and honestly I kinda wanted to wallhang it after seeing it in person.

good call having your girl ("friend?") pick it out.. i should try that more.
but the 66's at 9.35 gotta be poking with the taper on that? they already are 0.225" wider than the widest deck point. i dunno top pic doesn't look insane at all

Top pic was taken at an angle. The trucks only stick out to where you can see a sliver of axle nut, and it doesn't make a difference whatsoever. It's only 0.11" difference on each side.

It's a pretty cool shape as well since the tapered nose + tail make the board very manipulable like a standard popsicle, but the width is great for stability/truck room.

Yes, you must be very careful. Riding a board even slightly eggy might make you fly out in space and the board over rotating when flipping. You must especially be careful of the ego factor when egging, when riding egg among popsticle friends they might be intimidated by your flying into space. Please dont let it get to your head and all should be fine.

Guess both those can be seen as pros and cons.

Also eggs are fun, not much much different than popsicle, maybe some rotating tricks easier etc but all depends on the size etc.

Egg-shaped decks are pretty hard to get here in Malaysia. 1 of our local skateshop has some Primitive DragonBall collab in, and i've been eyeing the Franky board.. So when they came in i snagged 2 to go.. The moebius collab has the same exact dimension..9.125 x 32.187, nose 6.9, tail 6.4 & 14.25wb. Already setup 1 with Indy 159 standards & f4 99a 54mm. Ordered a set of Ace55s from a skate shop in Thailand. Will set those up once it arrives. I hv the 44s on the AH 8.5 black widow..

i like egg tails for rotational and scoopy tricks. they arent as stable for me as blunt kicks for everything else.

I am riding the same shape, but a different Villani  graphic. I am using some thunder 149ís I had laying around. The deck tapers to 8 3/4 at the wheels and the trucks have an 8.5 axle length.  I think Frankie Villani uses 149ís going off of his signature truck and videos Iíve seen.  Definitely a fun shape to skate. An 8.75 axle would be the go to truck if would want to match the width exactly where it tapers.

Most of my flippery was during the era of these shapes only, so for myself, it feels more natural than these popsicle shapes. Although, hypocrisy here, skinny popsicles are nice and flippery for me as well. Just not into the current wide trend

I feel the same way, I tried to like the wide popsicles but it was a waste of my time and money. I love egg shapes for flip tricks and they are cool to just down at because they have "character".

Naw, I mean.....yeah itís fun to try different stuff, but Iím in too many places with equipment and now it just gets in the way of actually skating.
Ventures are great, shit I like thunders as well.
Having a Ďcruiserí or something with soft wheels is fun to switch it up, having a big ass boat of a board can be cool too. Whatever gets you stoked. My shit is blocking me from getting outside. Iíll get out there, fucking hate my setup on the way to the spot (cuz too small, wheels little, whatever), get there, do great (for me) kickflips be stoked ish. Next time out Iíll try and ride something not so cramped, love pushing down the street, freak the fuck out when I canít land a trick. Rinse. Repeat.
Quarantine got me extra kooky.

Symmetrical 6.75 nose and tail

It came out halfway decent. Iím gonna run it with Ace 55s and it should work out pretty good.

I marked the centerline on the deck and about an inch back from the lower bolt holes on the nose and tail.  Traced the tail onto paper and then folded that in half.  Cut it to a different shape and then laid it out on the deck to see if I liked it.

Tried that a couple times till I had one I liked. Traced the shape on the tail of the deck, did the same for the nose.
Jig saw, sander, sandpaper...

I just got my Ace 55s in the mail today so i set it up with the Franky egg board.i put 2 speedrings on the inside. Before this, i was running Indy 159 standards, also 2 speedrings on the inside.. Both trucks fits nicely.. Got thunder team hollows 151 as well. Haven't tried those on yet. Yeah.. Truck madness.. If only i can get my hands on the Venture 6.1 😅

Not sure what your definition of huge is exactly but Iím assuming 9+? I know 35th Ave has a nine inch football shape. Their shop boards are really good and worth the price, plus the shop is rad.

Yeah, I grabbed the red graphic one because it was cheaper and I wasnít sure if I would like the shape or not. For sure, I would have loved to have tried that 10 egg.

I just came off a semi egg shaped Heroin, which met an untimely end so I set up my first real egg, another Heroin (eggsorcist) which is 9.4 wide. I never rode an egg before those and wasnít sure I would like the shape but it turns out that I love them, which is what led me down the rabbit hole of grabbing that Villani. That should tide me over until this bout of madness passes haha

No idea on your query, but if I ever make it through my backlog of several years old half skated boards, Iíd look at a narrower egg shape. Shaped boards can be fun, I just donít need bigger than 8Ē trucks, thatís never helped me.

Just set up a 8.5 heroin board. I haven't skated in a year but the wood feels cheap. I'm not sure if I am tripping or not so does anyone else feel similarly? It almost feels like the board was previously waterlogged. I'm also not used to the egg shape yet, I kinda wish I got a popsicle since its been awhile

As far as I know the smallest one was the original one for Shimizu that was 8.5. They actually reissued that one for the black summer stuff a year or so ago, without Shimizu's name. The next closest thing you can find right now is the fried egg from last season at 8.9. There's also the Hardbody football at 8.75 for those interested in diving into the egg extended universe.

in the same vein I'm thinking of getting the Brown Bomber or Black Widow (although i don't like the short tail of the widow)...does anyone know what the the BB tapers to over the back trucks? i'm hoping i can still use my thunder 149's on it.

Iíve been skating the couch shape, and like the poster above am liking the tail. I was looking at it today, as it has worn into a nice squarer shape.
One other thing that I like about it is the clear coat or layer that is on the board. Iíve been skating slick decks over the last year, and the couch finish is really slick. At least for nose/ tail slides.
Have any of you skated both the couch and the Villani 9.125? Iím grabbing another board and would be rad to hear anyoneís opinions on the Villani compared to the couch. I might just grab both because even if I donít like the Villani I could gift it to a friend who likes eggs as well.

I forget the measurement but you can totally use 149s/ 44s on the BB. If I remember correctly, they actually line up closer in width than 159s.

That Axel shaped jar graphic deck is an 8.25" wide with 14.75 wb.  This fists one in the photo looks more like the monster egg shape, which is closer to 9" wide (based on how the edges of that deck line up with the presumably standard 9" sheet of mob grip he's using).  no idea of the wb

This is Fos from Heroin. First time seeing this thread (as I remember anyway.) Thanks so much all, blown away by all the reposts and comments about our egg family of boards. Glad you're enjoying em.
Here's a bit of background on where it came from, and I was actually planning on doin a week of reposting Egg boards and bits about the history of them on Instagram.
So, Shimizu was the one who first hit me up about doing an egg shaped board in 2016. So, I used an H Street Mike Carrol board as the original inspiration. Art of Skateboarding says that board is from 1991, sounds about right. It's 8.5 but that's right in the middle and it tapers a lot to above the trucks, as do all the Eggs. The Wheelbase on this first one was tiny too, a lot of wheelbases in teh 90's seemed much shorter than nowadays. A few of the riders liked the Shimizu Egg from Fall 2016, but It wasn't until I redesigned it and made it a lot more functional with the Big Egg that I think it started to gain some popularity. That was Spring 2018 when the Big Egg first came out. I took the original shape and blew the whole thing up and put it onto a more realistic Wheelbase for todays market.
So, I really didn't know if I'd like it personally. I've always liked popsicles with really straight rails and rounded out noses and tails. Once I rode the Egg though I ended up skating five in a  row and it was my new favorite shape, it seemed super functional right away and whenever I order boards for me to ride personally i always ask for em on the Big Egg shape.
It's 9.125 in the widest point, and more like 8.625 above the trucks, so skates more like an 8.5 or 8.625. I use Titanium Indy 159's with mine.
So after this one was such a hit with the team riders and shops, I did more and have tried to have at least one or two eggs in every season since. The 10" egg was a huge hit among a lot of my friends and lots of people hit me up about that, so it's the latest to have a reprint. (Which quickly sold out, but we have more coming this month)
The 9.4 shape was popular (Anatomy of an Egg and Eggxorcist) I made an 8.9 version too with the Fried Egg.

For Holiday (Dropping Oct if any of us are left alive by then) We have 2 new ones, the Space Egg in 9.4 with Razortop construction (It's all I want to skate, that was a drunken Chet Childress calling me up saying we had to do that construction)
We're also doing a smaller 8.7 one called the soft egg, which is a modified version of the original smaller sized egg that we made.

Whew, lots of typing. Anyway, couple more points if anyone is still reading. Primitive were cool enough to let me draw that first Franky Villani Bat board, and so I aid it was cool if they wanted to use the Big Egg shape (Cos he was buying and riding those boards) and seeing as it's all at the same factory (Bareback) then I was cool about them using that shape.
Had lots of pro's from other brands hitting me up about shapes and buying em from our online store, which is really cool and flattering.

Thanks all.

No, I'm sorry they don't have 14.75 wheelbases. The Very Big Egg is a 14.38 WB.
However the Deer Man Skeletal 2 on woodsman that we just released has a really similar shape to the egg, Nose is almost identical and the tail is really slightly flatter or more squared, and its double drilled. I don't have one here to measure and give you the specs, but I think its something like 14.75 and 14.125 are the options for that one. Not 100% sure though.

Thanks for posting FOS, great info on the Egg story.
I have a 2nd set-up with the 8.9 Friend Egg since a homie drew the graphics, and I feel like it's the perfect width to jump into Egg shapes with. The 9+ width boards scare me, but now I know how functional the shapes are even though they are pretty wide in center. Indy 159's I had laying around did the trick.

I do wish that ACE would come out with their new truck sizes already so I can get some 8.5's to put on the smaller Egg shapes like I have 44's on my everyday board, but that has nothing to do with Heroin and your amazing boards  ;D

I got the Villani deck in today, and took a couple photos to compare to the couch. The Primitive has a much smaller nose and tail, and the wheelbase is 14.25, not the 14.5 that Iíve seen listed online. The couch tail is much wider, squared, and a little longer than the Villani. Also, the couch has deeper concave, and is all around fuller feeling. The couch worked perfect for me, had so many fun times on it. It will be cool to try the differences with the Villani, and see which I like more.

Interested to hear about how the two compare. Also, re: the fullness of the couch...

I had the loveseat a couple months back and in spite of it having a 13.875 WB it still somehow felt longer and more stable than my brown bomber (14.25 WB). Something about the amount of flat maybe?

I just set this up today, nice feeling deck. I have 159's on them but 149's might work better. The wheel wells work great, i had 55mm conical full spitfires and i couldnít get it to wheelbite. It feels more like an 8.3, it's very maneuverable. I think the heroin 9.125 would suit me better, but this will be my tech board

Burke popsicle and had my 1st sesh on my new popsicle (I unfortunately only get 2-4 sessions a month); but I have my eggy one (Strsngelove 8.875) in the trunk and you make me want to pull it out next session (Tustin park this Sunday a.m. if anyone is available/willing)

Anyone have the Cromer egg shape? How wide is it at the trucks area?
Wondering if I can use 139s with it. I don't like trucks wider than the board

Don't have one but have held one and I believe 139s are the appropriate truck. @chris. (I think) was rocking one for a bit.

I never did own one but I was thinking about it. Some folks here talked about how skinny it feels and it scared me off. From what I read I think 139s sound right.

Assuming my order went through, I should have the Krooked lil snuff in a few days.
So basically, I ride 7.75s and/or egg/ football shapes. That basically tells you I am stuck in 1992/93 and 1997-2003.
(I'm not denying it, just stating the obvious)

Looking forward to seeing that snuff. Those are probably way too small for me but I have some 33s and 139s so I am tempted.

I had a really hard time years ago moving up from sub-8" boards, and the return of 90s footballs were the key. Made me realize what I loved about small boards was the super tapered nose and as long as I have that, I can go wider for sure.

Not sure if I'm going to throw on my boardy cakes 44s or use my Spitfire 48s on this. Probably the Spitfires. I'm hoping to use the boardycakes on my Lotti Showgirls reissue. (I may flip flop these 2 setups, wheel wise). As soon as I get it, I'll take some pics. I bought some stickers to put on this too, which is funny because I never really put stickers on boards for the last 20 years. (The initial theory on this, was that boards only lasted me 2.5 weeks for a period there, so I didn't want to waste the stickers or something). Boards last me  way longer now

I'm currently running the Cromer egg shape and it's been super fun for me! I'm riding Thunder 147 raws (stock bushings) with riptide pivot cups. Paired with 53 mm F4 tablets that are probably worn down to 51 mm. I would definitely not use trucks bigger than 8" as the taper is pretty dramatic. Crooked grinds I find to be a little different, but overall all the tricks I do have, have been pretty manageable and was easy to adjust. Tre flips feel nice with the rounder tail too!

Post by: ok boomer on October 14, 2020, 08:38:45 AM
Awesome. Its on its way to me now, so I should know in a couple of days. Prefer these shapes over popsicles. But again, I am extremely biased. I pretty much only skate curbs, ledges and banks at this point anyway. Interesting on the crooked grinds, can't wait.

I have Indy 169s on it now, with 2.54mm risers, and 55mm cruiser wheels. It is good for cruising, but too high and bulky. I want to grab Thunder 161s, but dont need them. Will just take the risers off and get some small wheels on the indys.

Been skating that Lovenskate Stevie Thompson 8.75 for a minute, my first egg shape ever. Generator Wood. Not sure about the wheelbase. Skating it with 149s and 53s (F4 Classics).
It's really wide for me (I usually skate 7.875 popsicles and 8.125/8.25 shaped boards), took a minute to get used to but I'm loving it, it's perfect for skating curbs and transition. Getting more soon I reckon!

I agree on both of those things, I was hoping it would flip like a 8.3 or less popsicle. I had indy 149s on it but I swapped them out for 5.6 Ventures hoping for a better flip. Another thing I remember eggs usually are great for 3 flips, and they have not been good for me on this board.

I agree 100%
I havenít landed a single 360 flip or backside flip on this shape. Safe to say I wonít be buying shape again. I really wanted the shape but I hate wheel wells, turns out the wheel wells were the most tolerable aspect of the fucking deck.

My review so far (AKA: 1 session) on the 8.38 Cromer lil snuff:
-Fun board, nostalgia is everything I hoped it would be
-Extremely fun for cruising (I think the 48 Spitfires helped?)
-Have not got to try noseslides on it yet (security guard was cock blocking my secret ledges)
-Flippage was pretty good. Have not tried 360 flips on it yet.

Love the shape. Always loved these shapes! I have an irrational "fear" that I will start enjoying these so much, then DLX will stop making it. Almost like I don't want to get used to it so much that going back to a popsicle sucks. BUT if they continue to make this shape (said earlier, I prefer a smaller egg), I could see riding this into the sunset.

I've been forcing myself to have a quiver and skate a popsicle as well based (more or less) on the same irrational feelings. It sucks.

Well, finally set up my Heroin Fried Egg. I was super stoked on this thing when I bought it almost 6 months ago, then had surgery and couldn't skate for 4.5 months, have been back at it and broken a few boards, and decided it was time. Contrary to everyone else in this thread, I was not all that stoked once I set it up. I stood on it, it felt weird. I rolled around on it, it was nice. Went to pop the tail, and it's a bit shorter than what I've been skating, and felt super sketchy at first. That was the five minute impression, as I was done skating for the day when my last board snapped. Took it out yesterday for session one and to see if I would actually be able to handle it.

Verdict: It's pretty dope.

I don't think I'm going to swear off of popsicles forever as a result, but I won't shy away from eggs moving forward either, which I think could be a good thing for me. I've gotten really, really set in my ways in regards to setups, and this forces me to rethink that. It reminds me of my old New School Mike Chu I had back in 1993 (it's probably nothing like that, but looking back 27 years later (holy shit), it makes me feel like that same little kid again. Only I can do more than two tricks on it now. Kickflips were pretty hit or miss for me yesterday, but treflips were pretty sweet once I figured out where to adjust my foot placement on the different shaped board. It's fun to skate, it feels a little like a surfboard, but it's pretty rad. Overall, the egg was a solid choice to skate for awhile.

Heroin Fried Egg 8.9"
Thunder 151s
Ricta 54mm Whirlwinds (usually a Spitfire guy, but wanted to give these a try, I don't regret it. Although when these go I'll be on another set of Spitfire F4s.)

I think Villani runs 151s on his setup, but it's 1/4" difference in axle length. I think you're good to run the 149s on there without issue.

probably would have preferred something different but  everything is pretty limited on what is available right now for egg shaped boards, especially if you are picky on size and wheel base. The skate gods need to pump our some inventory

I received my Space Egg (9.4) today and I was a bit disappointed with two factors:  I didnít realize it was going to be razortop, and itís a bit shorter than I expected.
I love the big egg 9.1 shape and have ridden a few of those, so i was excited to try a slightly bigger one at 9.4.  However, with the razortop Iím worried it will feel even wider.  Then add on top of that it seems shorter.
But who knows.  Perhaps I shouldnít count (out) this egg before itís hatched (skated).

How long is it? Just got a golden razor egg from my local. I stood on it and my (last ungripped) 9.18 cards and it didn't feel wider underfoot if that's any consolation.

Catalog lists it as 32.125
I stood it up to a big egg 9.1 that Iíve had on ice and the space egg is about 1/4Ē shorter.  When I stand it up against a wknd Jordan Taylor 8.6 that i have, itís the exact same, but I canít find a length for that one listed online.  And then itís about 3/4Ē shorter than a Girl Brophy 8.6x32.25, but thatís a different woodshop altogether so Iím not gonna try to draw any conclusions from that.
Iím guessing itís coming in anywhere from 31.8-32.0.

My space egg is measuring at 32.09 give or take. Itís in between the 32 1/16th and 32 1/8th mark. 14.4ish wheelbase. Iím enjoying the razortop construction on my street baller.

funny, i guess i'm not the only one worrying if eggs will just be a passing fad too. hoping they stick around.

i can't ollie them or do flip tricks as high, sometimes even a little rocket, but it makes a flatground or little curb sesh soo much more fun or inspiring or whatever.

Oh man, my kickflips are total dog shit right now because of my egg. So much so that I'm really thinking about making it solely a curb/cruiser board. So far I'm still letting it kick my ass as my main board. I've never had much success with the whole quiver scenario though. I always just end up riding my main stunt stick.

For others who feel the tail is too short on the heroin eggs, I would encourage 2 things.  1. Give FOS/Heroin feedback (Instagram works). 2. Redrill the tail for an extra 1/4 inch: I just use the a double drilled baseplate as a jig for redrilling the holes.     This works for me personally as I like 14Ē wheelbase, but I realize itís not for everyone.

i took mine to the park recently and it wasn't that great there except on the ledges. i don't think i could use it as a main. i hear you on the quiver thing, ive given a ton of skate setups/stuff away, too many choices and the variance can just fuck with you. im still keeping an egg and bowl board on the side, just for when im in the mood for something different.

yeah, the lotti is 8.125 at the widest. running it with 139s and slim wheels. the shape def feels like a sub 8" deck.
looks like the only spot that has in stock is tgm....

Old skull has some, but only the screened ones. Great shop though so I definitely think its worth paying a little more just to support them.

The Lotti is around 7.75 at the front trucks and 7.5 at the back, so it skates like a very small deck. As much fun as it is, I have size 12 feet so I definitely struggle with finding the pockets sometimes, especially in cupsoles. There is a solution though...

The Enjoi Deedz 8.375 shape is literally just a wider lotti. It's the same length, wb, and mold so the kick angle is identical. I think its 8" at the back trucks and 8.12 (or maybe very slightly less) at the front, I don't feel like turning on the lights and walking across the room to check but I'm fairly certain thats what I measured it at. The only negative is the current graphic (the trucker hat one) kind of sucks, so you'd have to either try to find one of the previous ones (which aren't much better), wait for the next one, or just slap a bunch of stupid stickers on it and embrace the inherent goofiness of Enjoi. If you normally ride an 8-8.25 deck I'd definitely recommend going with the Deedz rather than the Lotti.

All boards should be released in that Lotti shape. I've had 3 of them, it's awesome (for me). Also helps that Lotti is one of my idols of course. If I could get a stockpile of that shape I would skate nothing else

no problem, watched a few times already and almost rage copped the 9.125” egg as well. Part so sick.  Searched through who else had one set up and with what gear. Someone had run ace 55’s on one too without much hot rod. But 6.1 151 159 any 8.75” trucks probably ideal.

I just copped the sock monster one, good to know that the shape comes from Heroin. I wish I could buy a Heroin deck but in Europe they sold out immediately.

Gonna try to setup with the ventures 6.1, works fine with the Girl 9.25 I'm currently riding.

I hope you all like the Villani egg! Feud I skated one in August, with with rails and 149 tensor atgís. I also have a girl couch on 149 thunder lights. I really liked 149s on the egg.
I loved both boards for different reasons, the couch has a fuller nose/tail and the Villani is much more pointy. The Villani flipped slightly better imo, but the couch was great for shuvs and any 180/360s.
Also, Iím finding the primitive 8.25 shape is a good one for transitioning back to popsicles. It has a bigger tail than the Villani and the 14Ē wheelbase makes the whole board feel Familiar.

Lol, explain to me what a "rage cop" is. I could be a rage copper too, if it means what I think it does.

There is this Primitive 9.125 available in US. It's $70 though, Idk why, cuz the graphics? At least Primitive has coupons.

https://primitiveskate.com/collections/decks/products/villani-gaara-deck

I got a sock monster one and it's great, 3 stained plies and feels crisp AF. It is my first Primitive board. It has less concave than the Heroin eggs, as SundayNuggets was telling me before I grabbed mine. I like that, but I like anything from flat to medium steep. They all fit in that category. I honestly haven't skated it much, been skating my other shapes, I'm saving it for when I'm one with the force, and the force is with me. Thunder 151s, 51-53mm wheels, this thing feels way more snappy than it should. It feels like an 8.6 popsicle.

yeah he rides 151’s. 6.1’s would work. Seen ace 55 as well here and I think 159. Any 8.75” truck.

How’s the space egg shape compare? Does it have a less pointy nose than the villani? Some top views here but tough to tell

I have 151 lights and 51mm wheels on the Villani. I set it up basically as the low riding “tech egg” in my quiver. Barely have ridden it tbh, thought I would more, because I do like it.

I bet the 9.125 razor egg would feel even more “tech”. Something about the razortop boards feel lighter and easier to manipulate.

I haven’t setup the space egg up yet, but the nose and tail look and feel bigger in hand. I’m thinking the 9.4 will feel better at the park. Will get some pics comparing the nose n tail later.

I'm running Indy 159's on the Gold Razoregg 9.125. Works perfect for me. I've ridden it with 149's and 169's but the 159's work best. Anything bigger than the 9.125 you probably need 169's. I've been telling Indy to make a 189 for ages now. Haven't tried those ACE 66's but they look good and like they might work well on boards that are around 10".

$60 too but no grip. I feel like Iíve seen it more expensive or maybe just heroin boards in general are pricier

All boards they sell are $60, even stuff that’s normally $55 or $70. They don’t have free shipping, so it kind of all equals out anyways, unless you want a deck thats normally under $60.

I like that shop, I bought one of my big eggs from them and the St Baller. They shipped it out in a nice sized box with a lot of quality bubble wrap. Some of the other places I order from just send the decks in big boxes with no padding, and the decks can come dented or scratched from sloshing around during shipment.



The 10” egg wb is listed at 14.38”. But I measured it at a little over 14.4. My measurements could have been slightly off tho.

Just picked up this creature 8.8. I didn't need a deck but needed some consumer therapy and felt like supporting the local shop. Anyway, pretty stoked. Very similar to the Brown Bomber but shorter WB at 14". About 8.5 over the front axle and 8.38 over the back. Will likely use Ace 44s on this. I like Jay Howell's art also.

I almost got that before stocking up on brown bombers...but the length put me off....seems really short and potentially steep?

Whats an egg shape that isn't too pointy and doesnt have kicks that are super short, around a 14.25 wb ish. The real kelch 8.75 is pretty good but hard to find and the kicks are a tad shorter than I'd like.

6.5" tail, 7" nose and 14" WB.  Both the tail and WB are about 1/4" shorter of the Brown Bomber. Maybe a tad steeper nose and tail than an average BBS deck but concave is not too abrupt.

I like the bigger Heroin eggs better than my Primitive Villani egg. I think the Villani egg tapers too thin in the nose for me.

I just mounted up my Space Egg and trying it out now, it’s great.

I want to sell my Villani egg along with a new 10” gold egg, but shipping is ridiculous

Deedz 8.375 football

This set up is perfect. I got a razor egg last month which is awesome but just too different than what I usually skate. This thing felt great right off the bat.

Grabbed one of these Visit eggs the other day when Gallant posted them. Came in last night. Not too shabby. 8.75 at widest, 8.25 at nose holes and 8.5 at tail holes. Those also could be swapped, I was kinda faded when I was measuring.

This set up is perfect. I got a razor egg last month which is awesome but just too different than what I usually skate. This thing felt great right off the bat.

What trucks/wheels are you running? 5.6 high? I had mine on 5.2 hollow lows for a long time but recently swapped to Ace 03. I like them but I think I might go back to the ventures.

Wheels I was initially running some old F4 conicals that started as 53 but are around 50mm which is pretty ideal, but I picked up a set of 52mm (actually 51.5mm) NFG teardrops with the aces so I switched over to those and really like the way a thinner wheel feels  on it.

Also if you ever want to try a skinnier version the blind Brian Lotti showgirls reissue is the exact same in every way except its 8.12 at the widest (7.75 at front trucks and 7.5 at the back). I also saw one of the new almost decks has the same dimensions (8.375 x 32.6 14.2wb) but I'm not sure if it's a football or popsicle.

I hope AH do another run of the Cardiel 9.18. Love that shape for when I'm feeling the need for a longer WB.
