Any consolation I'm 6'3" and wear a 10.5-11.5 depending on the brand. I have come to prefer the short WB, but I also mostly skate curbs these days.
I know we aren't madness shaming in the gear section, come on were better than this.

sorry for the weird photo, i had to take it off my instagram story because i already skated that board
alien 8.25 x 32.25 14.25, BIG ass nose, feels kinda weird, like a hockey board
old ace 44s
dialtone jahmal conicals 54 99
pig bolts
spitfire bearings
jessup grip
powell rail

the wheels are kinda funny too, they feel very good but the bearings keep popping out of some of them, it doesnít affect the skating or the speed but that never happened to me with any other wheels

Was kinda over the hockey board and then took a chunk out of the nose, so I set up a Dane 1. It's my first time on a wheelbase this short and I can already tell it's gonna feel pretty crazy.


Dane 1
Jessup Ultra
ace 55
conical fulls 99a 56mm
quantum atoms
bronze

Has anyone else who's used jessup ultra had issues with the backing sheet tearing while you were trying to peel it?

That board is sick. The short WB makes for some quick cuts with loose trucks. Seeing this had me looking for another.

Like the no grip nose too. Easy on the hands.

No grip on the nose of such a short deck could be tricky. I have had issues with my Dane (short Decks on general) to not have enough space to Ollie high. Loved the Dane1 anyways though, really nice setup

Thanks lads. It has been tough adjusting to the Dane 1; coming from the hockey with no tail and a massive nose, to this with a massive tail and no nose has completely fucked up my tricks, but damn does it feel good just cruising around. Shuv tricks are just effortless on it too.

Do the Ace Low help it turn?

I am on my 3rd 8.3 twin and I currently have 149 Thunder Ti on it.   I have skated the shape with Indy 149 Ti, Indy stage 8 146, Mini Logo 8.38 and the Thunder Ti.  The Thunders have been my least favorite - mainly because of the lack of turn -  with the Mini Logos and a 1/10th riser working the best for me.

Big photos for a big boy! Curb Crusher that can still be nimble.



AWS 8.625"x31.7"x14.125" WB
159 Indy Forged hollow w/ACE low tops/reg bottoms+sleeved washers (snappy)
Riptide Cracked Ice pivot cups
97a 54mm spit conical fulls (two washers on the inside)
Bronson ceramics
MOB
Santa Cruz Slimline Rails
Nuts and Bolts

It looks more popsicle in photos than it feels once gripped; it could be the width but it is has a double shovel vibe going on. I am usually not a fan of large (long and full) noses but rounded but preferably squarish - full and on the shorter side, so this fits the bill. It has a symmetrical vibe going on as well (even tho it isn't).

They don't really turn faster. but they turn better if that makes sense? The bushings just feel better to me. Higher quality I guess

Looks good. Im surprised the WB and length are so short for it being an 8.6
Their 8.125 and 8.25 also have the double shovel shapes

The WB and length are the main reasons I picked it up; wanted a wide board but not with a 14.5 WB and pushing 33"+ length which is what seems to happen as you go wider.

I used to feel the same way (I always skated 8.3s but wouldn't go bigger); occasionally I run an 8.5" popsicle if I was park skating on the regular but always felt 8.3s were the best all around size for park, bowls, street, etc., but I will skate shaped boards in big boy pant sizes because why not!

This thing is a different beast mash-up for sure (for me anyway).

been dying to try this shape but its near impossible to find one in covid times. thanks @Buttfart Rapedick for hooking it up, first setup in the new apartment. 3 inside washers until I can get my hands on some ti (or hollow) 5.8s



scumco kiddie pool 8.75/31.75/14.0 wb
venture 5.6 hollows w/riptides+flat washers
f4 conical full 56mm 97a
swiss super 6
bronze
jessup
sb dunk lows/adidas tyshawns

hyped to move on from 8.5s, too cramped for my liking. this has just the right amount of heel hanging off at this width

All these wideish boards with the nice short wheelbases have got me horny. Hope we start to see more of these out.
Also if i thought a mob of yewwing sweaty californians were about to wrap me up in a pabst-scented covid group hug I'd start pushing the fuck out of there too

It's weird.. when they do come out it seems like only a few places get them and they go super fast so they must not make many of them. I wish I had pulled the trigger on the 5.6 titanium last time I saw them but that was mid-pandemic so they were like $95 at the few shops I saw that had them.

was a no go from me, but the WB on this one has me thinking different. Hope you have some fun on that one @Xen

First session and I love it! Didn't lose any flip tricks and gained Frontside Caballerials (no pivot) with absolute ease (along with some other tricks)

Slappies. Clearly I've been doing it wrong all these years. Wider trucks and bigger wheels are waaaaaay better.

Perhaps I'm just a wide board guy now and trying to force myself down to under 8.25" for the past few years was an effort in futility.

Love to read it! Might have to give this big boy a shot. Loved feeling comfy on a bigger board, but always had a hard time flipping it. Thanks for the update!

Kickflips took a little bit of extra effort at first but I got used it, I thinks it’s more the weight of the board than the width. Impossibles were a little slower but everything else was normal. The front (full) cabs sold me...I can do them pretty well but not like today’s successes...started throwing in bigger heels and I was getting really close.

Also, I rip on Indy a lot but I’ll be damned if these 159s in this configuration/ bushing setup didn’t feel on point...and coming off tensor I was ready for the grind struggle but the ease of getting on and locking in helped extend the grinds just not as far as the mags...and I was slipping out.

Everything about it is just easy and comfy.

Better hurry, I just picked up two more; tactics has one left.

I picked up a bunch of 8.18” recently now I’m stuck with them ;)

Haha I can relate. I have 3 8.25s right now and have been thinking of going for a wider boy, especially for park skating.

I don't usually go through tactics but thanks for the heads up! I'm on medical leave right now, but once I'm back to work, and not living off disability I'm gonna definitely invest. Hopefully the place I go through (mum's the word but you can probably easily find who if you go through my post history) has these bad boys. Thanks again Xen!

thanks for the appreciation pals, loving this setup. keep asking for WBSWB style decks and the companies will answer, have seen a couple more around after the thread went up.

let them know theres a market waiting to be tapped!
