I'm not a fan of die-cut graphics on grip but this one is well above acceptable.

thank you lobster, i usually just run black jessup but i actually prefer less grippy cheap grip and the sect grip fits the bill perfectly. the top graphic just happened to work out perfectly

4 Real this set up is a beauty! Is it 8.25?
The AWS/Habitat 8.25 is seriously my favorite shape of all time. Im skating one right now and it seem difficult to try and find a replacement. Which is kinda fucked since they are becoming quite hard to get, at least around here.

Does anyone maybe know the length and wheelbase for AWS 8.25? I loved my 8.125 and think about stepping up.

Thanks for the quick response. Unfortunately, that is a bit too long. I was hoping for around 31.8 in length.
Anyone know brands that put out 8.25 decks with that length?

Ok

Business & co has shorter bbs boards. Look nice.
Evisen has shorter boards.
Craig has some short shapes.
Quasi I think measures differently, so the boards are (were?) a little shorter than listed.

Seeing one of these out in the wild gives me real hope, the greatest shape on the Habitat range.

How’s it feel? I was a little worried on new batch Habitat being shitty

habitat and AWS recently restocked on their websites. 8.25's available
is the the squareish shape? i have a habitat 8.125 that is blunt/square, but the 8.25 AWS decks i have are more of a regular popsicle

I thought most brands are doing shorter than 32 in 8.25 now, most commonly 8.25 x 31.8 / 14.25 wheelbase, but the most common from looking at dimensions on sites I trust also include:

BBS:
FA / Hockey
Baker / Deathwish (some)
Passport
Pizza (some)
Birdhouse
DGK
Primitive
Polar
Zero

Other wood:
Toy Machine / Foundation (some)
Plan B (some)
Girl / Chocolate (some)
Jart
Santa Cruz (some)
Dwindle (some)




I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Thanks man. I was a bit confused cause AWS in Europe seem to be Dwindle wood and the 8.125 I had was just perfect. But I will look into Hockey and Polar.

Films are awesome for sure. Once I figured out to lube up the pivot cups, they ended up being some of my favorite trucks. I hope Eurotings or someone else in the US gets more soon, I could use a bigger pair.

carpet just did a series of boards that are basically blanks; they're colored wood grain and they just have a small carpet logo above the back truck.  i think they sell for 48 or 50, so just a few bucks more than a Prime or Canada Boardshop blank

oh man,  the graphic was an artist interpretation of David Gravettes mothers womb being invaded by Davids fathers semen
I'm not kidding..

Dimensions are nice
Board was on sale
Rustoleum is a very good product

Just looked on the site and saw them. Totally didn’t know they had put those out. Curious what the exact specs are but I’d totally buy one of those. Carpet is sick
