- Habitat Imaginary Beings II Fred Gall, 8 x 31.625 x 14
- Indy hollow forged 139s
- Santa Cruz Slimeballs 97a 53mm
- Bones risers 1/8
- Riptide pivot cups
- Random bearings
- Jessup grip I believe

Snow is finally gone (for six months anyway), so time for a fresh deck. In the past, I've had good luck with a Habitat board bearing the same dimensions, so hopefully this one works out. Concave is pretty mellow but not flat, same with the kicks. Nose is a bit more squarish and larger, which is good for me b/c I want to work on noseslides. Love the graphic as well; I have the same board in my collection.

I set the Indys up in April on a different board and they feel great so far, no complaints. I haven't had Indys in years but based on the lightness of these hollows combined with their look and grind made me interested. The stock bushings are doing what they should.

Wheels are great too - I wanted a 97a white wheel and these fit the bill.

Hopefully for my next setup I've got some Bones swiss. Also contemplating buying some 101a Loopholes, spoiling myself.

So sick.

Skate it but also email FA they’ll probably give you a free one since that’s a defect.

After seeing Tyshawn quit FA, had to scoop up one last snickers graphic. Set it up on stuff I wasn’t using and it feels so good. Probably gonna be my new main setup. Forgot how good the FA shapes skate. Also grabbed the ace hard bushings but haven’t thrown them in yet.

Ran it back again on this shape/concave. Pretty flat but fun and much better w/ these Indy's. Just enough lighter, but not too light.

First time riding a 9 inch popsicle after riding 9 inch shaped decks for a while, liking it so far. Got Indy 159s on there and Spitfire Conical Fulls that have been skated to about 48mm.

•Sci-Fi Fantasy - 8.5X32x14.5WB

•Venture 5.8 standard - Krux Top/
Loose Conversion Bottom Barrel Bushing/3 washers in through all axels
•Spitfire F4 Classics- Ishod Black 55MM
•Modus 7S
•WKND Allen 1”

After coming off an 8.38 Eagle, this board picks up on the stability but the slightly steep nose makes it even better.

Colored wheels are usually a no-no but it goes well with the orange deck

Thanks man! The front truck is kinda lacking on one side, but I'm terrible at any BS grinds. The back truck doesn't have that as I hit those spots doing front feeble/smiths. Lately I've been getting over my fear of ollieing backside into anything so I can get even more coverage on my trucks.

forgot to take a photo of it when it was brand new, 30 minutes prior to setting this board up i set up an alien joey obrien deck that i did take a photo of and snapped it on a flatground tre flip, i was pissed

theories 8.25 x 32 wb 14.25 (nice shape, bbs wood, i just hope it doesn’t fucking break like the aws did, it was also bbs)
standard 5.8 ventures (stock bushings, flat top washer)
spitfire f4 og classic 58mm 99a (i’m going to switch to 55mm classics when i get my next board, the shape is good but i think i like rounder, skinnier wheels more)
cortina c-class bearings, 6 diamond bolts (literally the worst hardware i’ve ever had, every time i switched the deck at least one nut stripped), jessup grip

as for the shoes i’m jumping back and forth between shell toes and skate half cabs, the halfcabs are great but i’ve been skating strictly shell toes for 2 years and i feel like i skate better in them :(

Aren’t the “loose” bottom bushings the same height/duro as stock?

How is it more stable when they have the same WB? My Alltimers 8.5, which is the same shape, felt anything but given how much steeper the nose was.
