I noticed Andy Anderson seemed to be riding a sort of egg shape at tampa pro. Kind of an interesting shape, only a slight taper and it a bit squared off and looks pretty long. I wonder if Powell will put it into production. It would be nice to have a flight or VX egg, I'm surprised SC isn't on that.

Why is no one talking about that God awful mike v poetry rap thing? That made me physically uncomfortable to watch.

I donít know if it counts as an egg but I just picked up a passport spade board and some 159s after diving through this thread. Summer set up and I canít wait

Should be nice - straight out of lockdown too, depending on where you were.

Shape looks fun, stood on it last night. Waiting on bigger wheels now and some riptide/bones med to really church this thing up right

Width: 9.48"
Length: 32.75"
Wheelbase: 15"
Nose: 7"
Tail: 6.75"

got a Curb Killer today. had one specially ordered a while ago. but who ever was in the shop when it arrived didnt know so they put it on instagram and i was just in time to stop them. afterwards they even had buyers from Canada trying to get it, mind you i'm in Europe. its so crazy how wanted it is.

would love the Skull Skates Deerman egg. but its impossible to get anything from them here in Europe.

Really conflicted on these. Love Chuck Hults, but $60 for a blank is a stretch. Prime is outta their fookin mind with their heritage pricing.

i've never run rails, how do they feel on the eggs? do they add any noticeable heft?

I almost always run at least 1 rail and my skating isnít tech enough to matter.

That said, rails are pretty small bits of plastic and I donít think make much heft. Those pig rails are especially super thin and light so

TL:DR - No!

Whatís the idea behind putting on one rail? Seen it quite a bit and am curious. Personally, I have not used rails since my first setup around 30 years ago.

Two rails can be a bit too slippery. One rail gives you a bit more control. That's the theory. Usually people put the toe side rail on. This can also help with board slide to feeble/ hurricane combo leverage. Personally, I don't use rails much and when I do I like to use both. Preferably skinny low profile ones.. but I just find them too sketchy on steel coping. I really only like them on curbs.

Right! I thought most people are using rails to protect graphics hence I was confused about the single rail thing. If I need more slide I just put some wax on the board and it usually works out fine.

We have a Heroin board delivery due in tomorrow, with the Deer Man ďreturn to the ForestĒ board coming in for the first time, his new video part will drop on Halloween.
We have our last drop of Curb Killer Eggs, and the majority of those will be shipping to skate shops, we have a few coming to our online store on Friday, but 80% are to fill back orders at stores.
We also have a Halloween special re-release of an Egg shape for our online store. That will be going live on Friday.
Iíll do a Live video from Baker Boys tomorrow with more details.

there was a re-up on the Curb Killers too.  Had both the eggxorcist and CK in my cart within seconds of 10am Pacific and by the time i got to checkout it rejected my purchase saying the CK was already out of stock!  At least I got the eggxorcist tho.

Looks like Krooked have a couple of Eggs on the way. This 9.3 looks particularly nice.

i havent gotten any eggs myself but seeing as they're so popular, maybe this could be helpful for people in canada looking for some:

the local skateshop in hamilton has the heroin 9 inch symmetrical  with a collab graphic, available online (they might ship outside of canada, i haven't checked)

empire montreal has the 9.75 symmetrical at their downtown location, but not on their website - maybe it'd be possible to call and ask about shipping?

Blast football 9.5Ē
Over the trucks itís pretty much bang on 9Ē
Wheelbase is 14.375Ē, not 14.5Ē, which they state.
Nose and tail are both 6.75Ē as stated. Itís not symmetrical though. The nose is 1.5į steeper.

Gonna pair it with either Ace 55 Classics or 66 AF1s. Wheels I dunno yet. Generally Iím not a fan of small wheels but weíll see what goes nicely with this.  :)

If you guys are really serious about eggs you should hit up life skateboards. They do custom shapes, sizes, wheel wells, wb, graphics, and it's all handmade in my home state of Indiana.
