Was having some bad skate luck with my last deck so I set up a new board and everythingís been clicking for some reason:

FA AVE 8.5
Ace (classics) 55s
Spitfire F4 97a 54 mm conical fulls
Bronson raws
Mob
Bones hardware

The 97aís took a day to get used to but theyíre fantastic.

Heavenly...
FA/Hockey with 55s is the truth

Enjoy r7 8.5Ē x 14.25Ē x 32.25Ē

Iíve been eyeing this shape for a couple days, how square would you say the nose is? Eg FA/Hockey or less?

Brought this deck back out to try the aces on a smaller pop with steep kicks/concave for some flatground. Think the 8.75Ē hockey is in my future. Also have a polar 1991 on ice next. And the 97a are amazing.

Enjoy r7 8.5Ē x 14.25Ē x 32.25Ē
Ace 55
Spitfire 97a 54mm
1/8Ē risers

That looks fun Jay, I'm happy you got your hands on some 97a

I should have gotten the 54s. My 56s were helping me get off the ground tho

Looks good! How does the pop feel with adding risers to the aces?

@Frank and Fred good to try out for a bit, it works. I think ill stay on something bigger or shaped though w my size 13 feet and not flipping much.

@big_kev_215 i like, gets em to Indy standard height which I was used to. I think the steepness of the kicks matters a good bit too.

does anyone have leads on where to find longer 8.38 shapes that still have 14.25 wheelbase? like 32.5 to 32.75 length would be ideal. there's some evidence that tum yeto had/has such a shape, same with flip and habitat. but at least with habitat and toy, those boards seem harder to track down.

Yeah those decks are so solid, great shape and good kicks.

Sticker over it or scratch it off - grip offcuts work really well for that.

I have done that fairly often with other boards and didn't want the board brand or name showing.

I know from the short wheelbase thread and seeing them in person, the Alien / Habitat decks are often still the same length but usually with shorter wheelbases, which means long kicks.

8.5 X 32.25 WB 14.25


Found this one too, from looking at the online shop thread:

Also that's a ps stix deck. So that 8.5 probably measures more like a 8.375 across the bolts.

It's a good combo. You get the big truck turn and the smaller board flip. 55s also seam to have slightly narrow hangers for their size, so there's pretty minimal monster trucking.

Damn you are riding smaller boards!

I often look at that one and wonder if they all have the same stain or it varies, as the stock pic is pretty much perfect with the stain fade to sunset, not that it matters one tiny bit to how it skates though, which like the other boards the same as that I have had have been oh so good...

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

That is an excellent use of veneer fade
