Why are there so many posts without pics?
Can you even buy a phone without a camera in it?
Just curious.

Love the look of this deck. What's the nose and tail like? big and square (ps stix type)?

yeah pressed by stix, dims are 8.5, 32.125, 14.25. Nose 7.125 and Tail: 6.75". Only skated one Hockey board in the past, feels a little bit mellower. Same big nose but atleast to me the tail seems a bit more squared off/stubby compared to everything else i've skated this year. Need to have a proper session on it but just from an hour or two yesterday it feels pretty good.

That looks like a hella fun time. 169s with 46mm wheels is pretty wild to me, but if it works for you. :)
I once had 159s with 50mm wheels and had to laugh everytime I looked at it ^^

Thanks for the top pic. The tail does look fuller than usual on a ps stix (in my eyes anyway). Very nice!

I hurt my knee within a few tricks setting up the WKND. I was having a weirdly off day yesterday so I assumed it was because I hadnít skated in a week. Turns out my board had warped most likely because I had left it in my trunk. Iíve only ever had two boards warp on me in almost 25 years of skating and theyíve both been this year

Just curious about the size on the Casper and how you like skating Thunders with Bakers?

Itís an 8.25. I like that it has a pointy nose and tail. Iím not a fan of squared shapes for my normal setup. I only like skating Thunders. They work best for me and how I like to skate. Iíve tried my friends boards that had Indyís or Ventures and neither feel ďrightĒ

917 8.38 x 32 x 14.25
venture standard 5.8, element bushings
spitfire f4 og classics 58mm worn down to 51s
many different bearings
pig prime allen bolts
mob grip
vans skate sk8 lows

the element bushings obviously blew out - i had a flat top washer on there before and it dug into the bushing. i switched to regular top washers and theyíre keeping the bushings together, still work fine and turn great.
Skateboarding isn't a sport because when I'm in these streets I don't play

Happily worn down 50mm Classics I think.

There have been some 48mm Classics getting around in the budget lines too, so that is closer to the early 90s BPSW era.

Not sure how many or where they are in stock though.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.
