Scumco Kyle Nicholson 8.25" x 31.6" 14.25" wb
Venture 5.6 hollow
54mm Portland wheel Co conicals
Bop Shopô grip
Bop Shopô hardware

Been waiting for the new PS Stix Scumco line since last summer and they did not disappoint. Some killer graphics as usual and really nice PS shapes from the 5 I've acquired thus far. Decided to try this one first because I haven't skated a Nicholson deck in ages (and he's so good... Criminally underrated).

This one is your standard PS fare - full shape with very little taper, mild concave, nice wide squareish-round kicks, a mellow tail that should be very snappy and responsive on a mid height truck like venture hollows. Waiting for the sun to dry up some of the puddles outside but just messing around in the basement this deck feels great. So stoked these are available again.

Your board gripping has improved drastically since i've seen the first of your +/- 155 board setups in the last 2 years BFRD. Your best one yet :)

Shape looks good, enjoy.

After some sweet sales I ended up with a whole Christmas complete.

AH 8.5 x 31.8 14.25 wb
Venture 5.6 v hollow with 3 washers on the inside and ace low bushings
F4 52mm tablets
Reds
Jessup


Havenít done a proper session or anything, but so far Iím hating the feel of this setup from just skating around in the street a little bit. Definitely lots of different parts than what Iím used to so itís more of an experiment board, but it might be a failed experiment. I have some of the venture wooden risers that I will probably try out on the deck and I might test out the stock venture bushings because the ace have just been feeling really strange so far. Hopefully Iíll get used to it otherwise Iíll just have mark this off as not my style setup.

DOA square shape 8.25
Theeve csx v3, 5.25
F4, 54mm, 97a classics
Olympia bearings

The Theeves feel a bit small for this set up (Iím moving back up after skating 8í pops for a while) but not unmanageable.

The 97a F4ís are broken in now and they are easily my favorite wheels. A little softer than 99ís (just enough to take some rattle off on medium crust) slide nice enough and Iím liking the classic shape a lot (usually ride conical full)

Are the F4 97a noticeably more grippy on slippery stuff? I'm debating whether to try them or wait to see if NFG does another run of the 95a wheels.

I would skate 101a on everything if they gripped better, a smoother ride is not important to me, but the slippyness puts me on my back more than I'd like.

Yeah, they do grip a little better than 99/101a on stuff thatís usually slippery for me, though I havenít tried them on any indoor surfaces.

Iím curious about those NFGís too, though mostly to see how they feel on crusty streets. I like their normal formula a lot for pushing around but I wish the slide was better.

Cool, thanks. I've never tried any of the NFG but definitely curious about them.

hopefully its my last week of rehabbing my knee, decided to throw this together after testing my new surf stripe method




scumco (silver spoon?) 8.5/31.75/14.0
venture 5.6 hollow w/riptides +flat washers+indy 78a
f4 classics 55mm 99a
swiss super 6
bronze allen
mob
sb dunk lows/adidas tyshawns

actually liking bigger wheels now that im off thunders. swiss 6 really shine with wheels that can carry speed, they didnt feel much different than reds in 50mm wheels (surprise surprise). 58mm conical fulls are up next when i can find a set, any leads are more than welcome.
while cool-guying is a real phenomenon, studies show that 83% of all cool-guying incidents can be attributed to the cool-guyee being an awkward weirdo

This setup is the business.  Iíve got a set of Tensor 5.0ís collecting dust on a shelf in my garage and Iíve been thinking about grabbing one of these 7.8Ē Classic Eagles for them.  Your setup has convinced me to go ahead and do that.  Too sick.

Can we get a top view?

Waiting for the sun to dry up some of the puddles outside but just messing around in the basement this deck feels great. So stoked these are available again.

Those wheels look sick. They look wider than Spitfire conical fulls. Making me want to step it up to 54s on my next setup

I asked to see anything in an 8 to an 8.12whatever. The blue dip and odd shape sold me. Iím also in my early 30ís but I guess Iím a kid too.

Fine....how short? How funky?

If you was a kid, wouldnít this have 8.75 trucks, risers, 58s?

Scumco is 31Ē with a 14Ē wheelbase. Feels crazy to me but once I get used to it I think itís gonna get interesting.

Nice work!  I like that shape.  Where did you get your blank from?  Or did you press it yourself?
