skatemafia has a "symmetrical" shape

width: 8.5"
length: 32.1"
wheelbase: 14.2"
nose: 6.88"
tail: 6.84"

Unfortunately I don't know the specific name of the shape. I've ridden a couple of these boards and the longer tail has always been a good nose for my switch tricks. Their graphics are however questionable to say the least.

Nice!

Where are you and do you know what woodshop it came from?

Eg Europe it is HLC / Jart, but in US and AU it is BBS, or at least was last time I had some.

I live in Europe, but there was no sticker that would refer to the woodshop.

https://www.freedomskateshop.at/skate/skatemafia-lawyer-house-stripes-8-5-deck

I didn't buy it there, but that was the only one I could find online


Hey that's actually my local shop. Just wanna say in case you only found those measurements on their site, you shouldn't necessarily believe it. They fuck up the measurements all the time.

I bought (mail order) a Ishod 8.25 TT that was labeled and packaged as a TT but is not even close to symmetrical. Has this ever happened to any of you twintail guys? Cool shape but what a fucking bummer
i donít think any of you are real, i think slap was invented by my mom to make me think people want to talk to me

So it had the butterfly graphic on the rgular 8.28 shape?

That is definitely something to contact DLX about.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

It's so bizarre. About 5 minutes in, I was like something is wrong. One pop shuv later I looked down and had to park my ass for investigation.. sure as shit 7" nose and a 6.5ish tail. Fucking great shape tbh but not what I was looking for.

Ishod talks about this sometimes happening to him during his nine club episode.

You will definitely get a new one if you contact dlx

As the last 'twin tip' VX McCoy really wasn't (tail was a tad shorter), I'd be reluctant to trust it.

FLIP Berger Sprite "Twintail" 8.25" x 32.25Ē

https://flipskateboards.com/collections/spring-2021/products/berger-sprite-twintail-8-25-x-31-50

I don't get it. They only sell it on their website and never even mention it anywhere? Just ignoring this market they could absolutely own if they sell twin tails all the time.

I'm not even sure Flip is even a thing anymore...let alone Berger...don't get me wrong, he rips but I can't imagine his boardsales are doing anything, TT or not; Times are tough, you think a pro shop is going to order a Berger board? With that graphic?

This new Jawn Gardner board has lots of interesting dimensions, including being a twin tail.

I was hoping it was the the 8.51 pop, but it's the shaped:

https://www.nhsfunfactory.com/884in-x-3142in-gardner-ghosts-creature-skateboard-deck

This is one we've all been waiting for, The John Gardner Ghosts deck. Featuring a custom 8.8x31.4 shape with a 14" wheelbase and twin Nose and Tail, designed and enjoyed by Jawn himself over the past year. We're proud to offer this custom shape to you now helping to satisfy the recent craving for fatter decks with a significantly shorter wheelbase. Johnny boy nailed the one.


LENGTH31.42 in
WIDTH8.84 in
WHEEL BASE14.0 in
NOSE LENGTH6.61 in
TAIL LENGTH6.61 in
CONCAVEMedium

I would take Flip's measurements with a pinch of salt, the length measurements are flat across the board, for nose to tail. The 32.25" I got ended up being a 31.9". Strangely for their shorter boards (8") they measure nose to tail (31.6").

I just wish their twin tail shapes had a shorter wheelbase. I've skated the 8.3 a few times and it's really good but fucks with some of my favorite tricks. The 8.3 cut down to 14.25 with no other changes would be a perfect setup for me.

Well, they listened somewhat, the narrower the deck the shorter the length and WB.

Sticking with their theme, I would have done

8" 14.11" WB

8.25"x31.75x14.22" WB

8.3" 14.33" WB

8.5" 14.44" WB

That makes too much sense. Instead, let's just screen this graphic on Mason's shape and mix some in there indiscriminately.

Haha! They did go good for it though. I skated my replacement once and absolutely hated it. The 8.38's I've skated were real nice but the 8.25 sucked eggs..fuck that thing
i donít think any of you are real, i think slap was invented by my mom to make me think people want to talk to me
