AWS 8.25...love this shape
Tensor Mag Lites
52mm Tablets

First time trying Tensors. Yes, they are fugly, but they were a gift. I put Bones med bushings in and only two sessions in...love them.

if its really an eyesore you can dip the trucks in acetone and the coat peels right off...

The neon-tennis ball color has kinda grown on me. At least I know where my board is at all times.

Hockey 8.75 x 32.60 (14.5 wheelbase)
Spitfire Formula Four OG Classics 52 mm
-both lightly skated with my old Ventures

Ace 55s
Bronson Raw bearings
Mob grip
Random Bones hardware
Not pictured - 2nd pair in a row of all white leather Blazers

Not a huge fan of the graphic but I wanted to try one of Hockey’s 8.75s now that they’re making them. First time skating Aces (after a few pairs of Ventures in a row) which might be a rough transition but I’m thinking they’ll pair nicely with the 14.5 wheelbase.  Also stoked that the OG classics are now in F4.

I have an 8.5 Hockey deck lined up for after this.  Has anyone skated 9 inch Aces on an 8.5 before? I’ve never gone a full half inch difference between my deck and trucks before...

You better put some 5.8s on that 8.5.

Indy 159 Standards
Indy aftermarket black conical bushings

You could definitely skate them without the laces. They would be as good as a slip-on skate shoe imo. I do throw laces in them because I like the look better. Definitely my favorite shoes.

It's not too loud but it sounds wicked cool. Shitty part is I have to restrain from fliptricks because last time I skated in there I missed a few and it dinged up the floor..so it's just ollie variations and shove it tricks from now on. I gotta keep it professional lol

I've skated 55s on 8.5 (including Hockey 8.5) on 6 or 7 different setups and loved it every time. Flip tricks and everything worked great still. Honestly amazing setup all around for me

Also, super curious to hear about how that 8.75 Hockey skates, was stoked to see that and the 9. Too bad the 9's wheelbase is a mile long

same. The 8.75” shape is more blunt than the 9” as well. Close to scooping it if it’s still around when some snow melts.

Good to hear about the 55s on the 8.5.   That seems to be the ideal size board for me overall.

The shape of the Hockey 8.75 looks real similar to the 8.5 Hockeys I’ve had before. I skated it for like half an hour on some ventures and it was great.  Hope the snow slows down on the east coast so I can get back out there on the Aces with it. I was looking at the nine but the wheelbase is pretty extreme haha.

These Krookeds could be older than I initially thought. First one skated so well but delaminated.

Another 8.18 with all the same stuff as before.

Label Kills! Bought this Black Label a little while ago and after some madness of an 8.5 Real FULL SE with a tail that was not tall/long enough and an 8.375 $lave (was warped and I didn't know until trucks were on it) that felt too short... I finally got my back go homeostasis with my skateboard...  ;D

I am finally confident my ideal specs for width/length/WB are:
8.5" (an occasional 8.6 or 8.4 that have similar measurements elsewhere are also nice)
32.25 - 32.5
14.5 (maybe 14.38 on some boards)

8.5" Black Label 'Chris Troy' (14.5 x 32.38)
Mob Grip
149 Indys (standard hangar with a forged hollow baseplate)
54mm Spitfire F4 Conical Full - about 53mm now I think?
Bones Reds
7/8" Black & Silver Indy Phillips hardware

Got some wheels and set up a freshie with parts from my stash. It's still too snowy for me to want to ride it, so I'm breaking in the bushing by just rocking back and forth on the carpet like psycho.

I'm also pleased to announce that I have reached a new low in grip jobs. When I got this deck I got the end of the roll, so I was working with like a 3/4 sheet and a 1/4 sheet of 6 month old mob. Parental discretion is advised.

Eh. Fuckin keep it. Embrace the chaos.





I say this whilst contemplating if I should use mob or jessup, and trying to remember where I saw instructions for ‘world grip’ online


**edit

Now I’m unsure. I have a sneaking suspicion that you have presented false modesty, but really you made an intentional choice to grip in this fashion, as a completion of the aesthetic of the deck brand....they do shitty fake child-like ms paint style graphics, you logically continue this to the grip job. 5 year olds drawings, 5 year olds grip tape application. If you had done this on Visual deck, or a Visit, or something that has a sanitized, generic style than a that would have been interesting. The further I think about this I realize I don’t like being manipulated and you should change your shit immediately. You nonce

It looks purposely shitty, like an ironic way. I like it.

For your future self you could always cut the 3/4 sheet into 4ths or 5ths and gap out each sheet a bit to make it stretch.

That looks really sick. Love the Label but all their decks are a bit too long for me personally.
Is there a reason you use a Standard hanger on the forged 149s? Are there advantages for it? Thinking about doing the same

Skate Warehouse had sale of reject boards/ trucks at the swap meet this morning.

Deck: Baker 8.25 X 31.875 (25 bucks)
Grip: was already gripped, when purchased, not sure.
Trucks: 5.5 Tensor Mag Lights. Ten bucks for the pair, hard to pass up. Had a hard time finding a pair of "good trucks" though they were there. Might end up giving them away.
Bearings: very old Swiss. Need to update with new swiss or some reds.
Wheels: SML 53s. Might be 52 at this point
