I hope not for his sake.  Let me catch him at the continental breakfast… his face is going to have a close encounter with a waffle iron.  I promise you that, playboy.
When nothing in society deserves respect, we should fashion for ourselves in solitude new silent loyalties.

Why does the tail of the board look photo shopped? Like the blue is blurring into the carpet.

If it's possible to make a user mod of just 1 thread only, I vote @Buttfart Rapedick to be supreme moderator of this one. All setups that aren't DOA boards get kooked into oblivion or deleted.

I always thought Louie's boards looked different from classic FA/Hockey shapes under his feet. Less bulbous noses and more tapered looking. Is your board more like this by any chance?

feels like it. the big steep nose is still there, but it comes in more gradually. some Hockey boards I've had have been super blunt, but this one is nice and smooth

If you watched Mason's 9Club stop and chat, he mentioned skating with Louie and having to use his board (and that it wasn't an issue) because 'it's the same shape' so that would mean it's closer to the DLX 'stranger' (usually Pfanner) shape which is the one off 8.25x14.12x31.7ish, the Hockey shape is: 8.25"x31.79"x14.12" so damn near spot on) which is also very full yet rounded compared to both the standard DLX 8.25x32x14.38 or the 8.25x32x14.25SE. It's my favorite DLX shape even with the tight WB.

9" at front bolts, 8.8"ish at rear.
169 Indys
56 Ricta Chrome Clouds 92a
Santa Cruz Rails

I have some harder 56s I might throw on because I want to get more comfortable sliding, pivoting, reverting. (Smallbeating 83b, which is like 103a??) But I really only cruise and these wheels are nice for that. As you may notice, my "tricks" have come down to riding without falling, and nose stalls on curbs

maybe it’s the below just not marked on site?
“More Mellow Concave With Tapered Nose & Tail Than Traditional FA or Hockey Board Shape.”

Okay so, I wanted to give the HLC wood a chance.
The specs were right up my alley, this is a Cafe deck.

8.125 × 31.75 with a 14.25 wb

Coming of a tweaked ankle, I was just on curbs and flat today. First session after 5 weeks and I had a blast for 2 hours and then..



I landed a heelflip with a bit too much weight on my back foot. I was truly shocked. A broken deck after just 2 hours is even for me really fast.



I will give this deck to my parents so they have firewood for the winter.

That’s a bummer - I have a Cafe (same size) lined up next, like you wanted to try out HLC.  Even if they are a little cheaper it doesn’t make sense if they crap themselves so quick.

Nice one. I'm thinking of picking up an 8.0 Evan Smith board with the Richard Colman art. How's the feel of that Uma? Any idea what woodshop they're using?

Isn't Sour also HLC? I've been skating mine for solid two and half months (1-3 times a week) and it still have some life left. I even put a new griptape on it after a month.

Luck of the draw then I guess.  Looking forward to skating it.  6 weeks in on a Northen Co. which is holding up well.

139 Hollow Forged
Spit Classics 54mm, now 52mm (and perfect)
Modus Abec 7

917 is now BBS and this feels perfect so far. And it feels more stiff and crunchy as the Anti Hero I had earlier this year.
