It might have been an older board or you might have even seen them, but April had something in those dimensions:

https://www.momentumskate.com.au/products/aprilrosecolourdeck825

Features:

Width - 8.25"
Length - 31.75"
Wheelbase - 14.125"


[close]

Nice. Wonder how accurate this was/is? I saw dims posted for the same board and they were: 14" / 31.92"

It would suck to order one and not get what was stated in specs.

At least maybe keep an eye on the April brand because I feel like they would be a shorter board in general.

Just a thought anyway.



Ordered a Polar as it was to have a 14.18 WB, fucker ended up being 14.33. Never again.

Sometimes they cannot make it clearer that they put zero effort into the weekly guest. Nothing personal to him, but I donít think most people really give a rats ass what Rick Kosick has been up to in the last few months.

Also, they have zero consistency with their Covid precautions. For the main show, they donít have people in person for the time being to play it safe (totally understandable and respectable), yet they still have extra in person guests on the experience (I.e Dilo after he went pro).
To be clear, Iím in favor of playing it safe with the pandemic, but it almost seems as if theyíre using it as a convenient happenstance excuse to not have to find new guests for the main show.

Agreed. Like when they had nyjah on. Of all people in skateboarding to have on the show, they choose Nyjah. Idiots.

USELESS WOODEN TOY BANTER / Re: What defines a bad trick selection to you?
« Last post by Sedition on January 16, 2021, 07:22:00 PM »
Hard to pin-point, but there are some things that naturally "flow" together, and others that are way too forced and contrived. A b/s kickflip to fakie 5-0 to 1/2 cab kickflip out flows. A b/s smith to laser out does NOT. Also, there comes a point when tricks reach a natural "end point," and going beyond that just enters into absurdity (a good example being AA's 10 trick ledge combos). This is even true for simple stuff like railslides and slappies. You did a 100 yard f/s slap? Cool wax, bro. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. But, it's all subjective and as long as you're having fun....get as absurd, waxed, and contrived as you want.

If the skater does more than one of these things:

-pants that have words on them
-pants that have elastic at the leg opening
-high & tight ponytail (?)
-filmer zooms in on the face before & after trick then posts with some trap on Instagram.

They have a zero percent chance of having a good trick selection.

O'shea's are selling the fisheye for 2k+ and not to mention they started the petition to bring back the Mk1. So they brought it back just to buy out the stock and sell them for 3x the retail price which was $700. scummy as hell.

if true then i believe that theyre just trying to double their money at a time when many people are getting government support to "stimulate the economy." business model-wise, very smart but scummy nonetheless. i guess they finally realized that people arent going to be buy happy medium 69 or whatever number theyre at and are trying to find ways to perpetuate their skate lifestyle......the only thing ill be buying is discount brand popcorn

This is crazy!! how true is this information?... I thought the "save the MK1" peticion was a social action not a personal benefit maneuver...
Looks like the comment got deleted too!

Clint Eastwood sucks. He's built this reputation as some sort of tough guy but he's a pampered Hollywood crybaby always bitching about whatever Republicans bitch about. He was pretty good in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly but after that he's always played the same role but with slight permutations over and over again where all he does is squint and mumble. Now we have to see his shriveled up face continue to try to be the eternal tough guy only now he's no longer a pretty boy. Fuck Clint Eastwood.

This is shockingly untrue and a bad opinion. He's had regular success as a director for almost 50 years, and has worked in pretty much every genre. He also composed a number of scores for his films. Have you seen anything he is in or directed other then the man with no name films? Just cause you don't like his acting doesn't mean he sucks. this is in fact an unpopular opinion
