Son of a bitch now everyone is going to think I copied @Sk.A.T.A.N...





Scumco Evan Smith guest model 8.25
Indy 149 titties
53mm Spitfire Evan Smith F4 conical (non full) 99a
Bones big balls
Bop Shop grip
Bop Shop 1" allen hardware

This thing is FLAT. Flatter than toy machine mellow mold, flatter than PGI 8.25, flatter than real low pro, it's even flatter than DOA flat as fuck. It might actually be the mellowest deck that I own which I'm super excited about. Quick spec rundown -

8.25" x 31.6ish" 14.25" wb
6.5" tail 7.0“ nose

Full shape and those wonderful wide rounded square PS kicks. The angle of both kicks looks to be almost the same, so I guess it's sort of a twin tail in that respect (but not length). I'm thinking this thing is going to be super snappy and easy to pop and catch while the wider kicks will still allow a strong flick. This is why I got so excited about new PS scumcos being released. They already had some of my favorite steeper boards (8.25 team and 8.37 Beall from the broadcast series + the logo board I posted a little while ago) and if this ends up skating the way I think it will they might also have one of my favorite mellow ones.

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.

The grip job I got a bunch of shit for was done with safety scissors, an ancient scalpel that had the tip broken off, and grip scraps because I didn't have anything else on hand at the time. It would have probably turned out better if I had flint-knapped a blade from some rocks I found outside. After a few minutes I just gave up trying to get anything resembling a clean cut and was more or less ripped the grip. I was definitely out of practice but, despite how it turned it out, it wasn't my first time gripping a board or anything. I did make it a point to order a 100 pack of square blades after that though. Coincidentally, I just sent that board to a SLAP pal yesterday.



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

Actually they're basically identical to conical fulls in terms of width and contact patch. Portland Wheel/Jivaro are creative urethane (as are like 80% of the wheels on the market) and I think those ones are the same mold as Dialtones.

If you want something that IS wider than a conical full NFG/Loophole's V Shape is probably the widest hard wheel I've ever skated. With some trucks/bearings I have to remove the speed rings just to get the nut secure. I think they only come in 54mm and 56mm, I'd recommend the 54 just because the 56 are like monster truck tires if you're coming from skating classics or something like that. The square shape is really good too and their formula is unique, it's really hard and starts out very slick until you wear the gloss off and then it gets a really nice grip/slide balance. They handle rough ground and hold speed better than any other >101a wheel I've tried. They also recently started doing a 95a crust formula which is awesome... It actually slides which is something that other 95a wheels I've tried really struggle with. The 95a squares have become my go-to winter setup wheel.

Gx1000 8.12
Venture lite 5.6
54mm bop shops
Minilogo bearings

Kind of a plain setup but I really like how it looks for some reason.  Got a good feeling about it.

Very fresh. Super fresh.

Edit: what's up with the wheels? How are they and who pours them?

GIRL Rick Howard 8.25 (G52) Slick
Indy Forged Hollow 144 stock
Bones Easy Streets 53’s
Bones Swiss
Bronze Hardware
Mob Grip

Has been ages since my last crailtap deck, but I’ve been liking the latest team moves and content from Girl so I thought about trying a new one out. It’s a shorter board at 14inch wheelbase which was something I was curious about and also a Slick which I never tried before. Hyped to try it out this weekend.

Looks great. Cool grip job

How'd you do that?

Is this series actually slick boards or is that what they're calling the series?  I cant seem to find that info anywhere

Loooool! You totally ripped me off dude, focus your board please. ;D ;D

@BMCsteve this one is an actual Slick. There's one more from the series (8.0 Brophy), the rest is normal boards.

New member to the group here. I've heard lots about slap message boards but never looked into it til today. Here is pic of my new spring setup and my decks from 2020. All REAL or Antihero. Was riding 8.25 mainly last year but I picked up an 8" Mason Silva for this year. I shoveled off the park and tried it out yesterday and it felt good.

That is a similar grip tape job to what I often did a few years ago.  Then I had some 12 year old ask me excitedly if it was a Revive.  I stopped doing it.

Is the taper on the GO52 as extreme as some say? Does it feel like an 8.25?

I haven’t skated it yet but If my eyes are functioning well I see no taper whatsoever. Quite full shape actually imho.

Supposedly it tapers to 8 inches even at the back truck.

The G027 is a full shape and it 100% tapers to 8” at the back. I believe the G052 is identical except for a slightly larger nose.

The Crail shape guide, for as thorough as it is, doesn’t mention the taper at all. It says “straight rails” which isn’t wrong but doesn’t tell the whole story either.

Could not stay on bigger boards for too long unfortunately.
Went back to skate a Carroll tar heel 7.5 and got crazy consistency. I wish i could skate that board forever.
So i bought this to replace it.




Magenta 7.6 black magic grip.
Venture 5.0 lo. Stock green bushings. Nut above flush.
F4 spit 50mm with swiss 6.
And diamond harware. 7/8th

Only skating shelltoes still size 12. Nothing like them.
Experiment 1s are just to chill. Seriously feel like slippers.

This has me cracking up, what exactly does Black Flag have to do with measuring your dick starting behind ya nuts?

Skateboarding is nothing but a game to find the right fits to appear like you're a proportional human being instead of a midget or a giant.

Fuck, you’re right. I went to measure it. Basically 8.25 right before and after the front bolts. Shovel nose shape (not as crazy as an FA).
At the back truck before the bolts is like a 8.2, then I wouldn’t say true 8’ but more like 8.1 after the bolts. Still looks like a full round tail tho.

Funny thing is that with naked eye I couldn’t tell that taper at all and I have the 1st Niels Bennett deck on the wall, which is a G50 shape and I could swear it tapers more, but after measuring it actually doesn’t. It’s just a shorter tail and a pointier nose but no taper... tricks the eye tho.

I skated a Brophy G027 and could deffo feel the taper on fakie tricks, I liked it enough to get another one for the pile...It's mad that it's called an 8.25 at all really lol, when i compared it to other 8.25s I have with straight rails, it deffo looks and feels smaller. Great shape though.

Its weird i could ride loose low 5.0 ventures on  a small board and wheelbite about the same or less than a bigger board with higher trucks. Dont get me started on 5.2 low ventures on bigger boards. And shelltoes just fucking grip and last long. Specially since black magic kills shoes.

I absolutely agree about the lo's.. btw I was on Orchards site on lunch break and Robbie G. has a 7.5 out now (you may already know this) and the measurements look ideal..I copped one.. I really shouldn't have, but I did.

Do you know the length and wheelbase of that deck?
