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.
gotten it set up yet? What trucks did you pair with? Dimensions sound great.

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, I'm thinking it's going to be a strictly curb crusher, which currently stokes me out. It will sure last longer that way. Guess we'll see what kind of use it gets.

Loving my 10" gold egg for different stuff. All terrain vehicle, cruise, tranny/bowl, curbs. Orchard has one or two more in stock, on their website or parade world.

Ok

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.

yeah, just watched too and almost rage copped the 9.125Ē egg as well. Part so sick.  Donít love the current graphics.

If it helps at all, in Fos' Pals questions he said that Franky's egg is the same as the 9.125 Heroin egg and that he just let Primitive use the shape.

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.

ha yeah noticed it sold out. Almost rage copped it after his part like a fanboy. But hearing about the pointy-ness maybe I wouldn’t of dug it as much. Think I’d like the 9.4 heroin space egg more

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.

Does anyone know of any egg shaped boards with a shorter wheelbase? I'm currently skating a 9.125 WKND board with a 14" wheelbase and want to grab something similar to that

Rode my 7.81 eagle instead of lil snuff this morning. For the hills - great. But once I was at the spot I craved my lil snuff. Everything I do now is mega low impact anyway. I've got 52s on my 7.81 so maybe hills just felt better because of the wheel size but I love eggs

According to Fos on IG, it's about 8.25 around the trucks
