any of you Boston guys, does Robbie Gangemi still skate? Henry Sanchez has been back at it, great to see OGs back in action. cool boards either way. i feel like Robbie skated tiny boards but i guess that was the era to a degree.

Ok

No pressure. Iíve lost my mind, further lost my mind? ....Iíve confused myself even more than before, and am now back to 7.75s. Had a freak out when I was trying to switch tre per our past agreement. And then couldnít land a regular one either. Baby trucks and wheels incoming.

Board skates hella good. 8.1 m1
I was riding it with venture 5.2 lows
Has great pop and feels really sturdy.
No pressure cracks yet. Not that it matters to me but to some it does.

I recently switched to indy mids and it feels great too. At first it felt off but now it it feels pretty good.

Gangemi still skates with same great style. He posted a sw flip and 360 flip the other day.

Usually i hear "eco friendly" on decks and they are kinda sub par. This board is good. I need to see how long it last though.

First dude is gangemi
Only thing better than watching Robbie skate is seeing him at Sandwich. I can't wait to go back this Spring.

I've got an 8.5 M2 on its way west. $5 shipping with a bomb Mission Hill T was too hard to pass up. Was gonna grab a sub 8 or at least an 8.1 but trying to visualize my feet on something that size wasn't happening and I chickened out. either way, I'm stoked to throw it down whenever it arrives.
stay high, lay low

If you can't find your size I know someone that bought a couple of 8.1 m1 and now isn't sure if he likes them, not because the boards are bad, just because he's super impulsive and has severe madness.

The m1 first round I don't know if they tweaked it at all since I ordered.

It's not like bbs stiff. I feel like a clutch made of better wood. I only got a half HR on it though.

It's mellow. And tapered. The M2 and m3 are more like a bbs in dimensions.

Psyched to see a lot of these boards online and in the wild. Finally skating my 8.0 M1. Big thumbnail (dull, not sharp for the fiends) of a nose, 31.5L 14WB

The big difference other than the nose is the mellow kicks. I had a 14wb Real full SE that took some adjusting to. Loved the lock on manuals but ghost pop and nollies took some adjustment. The Orchard M1 has taken no such tweaks. Great from the first Ollie and finding the flick with new Blazer mids has been quick despite the new shoes/grip combo. Previous setup was 31.8L 14.38WB Deluxe w/ Indy hollows and new 52mm F4s. F4s gave ghost pop coming from worn down Bones but those are gone with the M1

In summary: M1 shape not as stiff as BBS but still great pop. Big dull nose, mellow kicks, medium concave. Does not skate like a Deluxe Full SE other other 14WB. Absolute quality board, Iím sure the other Orchard shapes and Project Asteroid boards are too
