Need some board advice...

Currently have an 8.5 BBS (April brand).

The wood is great (crispy as hell) but I am not wild about the shape.

Reasons:

-tail is too small and pointy.
-not enough concave.
-not wide enough.

Been looking at following decks:

WKND 8.6–looks like greater concave and more tail.
Quasi 8.75–nice shape but larger wheel base and slightly less concave.
Alien 8.75–looks similar to WKND, but would rather get a WKND cause they have been working hard and all companies use PS Stix I guess so it’s kind of like pick your poison.

I am also looking at a Scumco Deep Dish 8.5, but for a really deep concave I would prefer a 8.75-9.00 wide deck cause I have a size 12 and don’t like to feel the edges of the board.

Don’t really care about brand or graphics. Basically would just like more room to stand and do nollie and shuvit tricks.

Thanks ahead of time.

i have only been riding 8.75+ due to my size 13s so we are kinda in the same boat

i am really liking this polar p8 deck. listed as a 14.5 wheelbase online but in reality, 14.38. measures 8.8 at the widest point but tapers to 8.5. i cant really notice the taper all that much, just feels more agile on flip tricks. i do feel like it forces me to have good back foot positioning subliminally since there is just less room. according to tactics it has a 7" nose, a 6.5" tail, and .438 concave. measured it myself at a hair under 32". just about 31.9. i want to try another deck but im really tempted to buy another p8 and have it in my locker as a permanent shape. feels like home. the other decks i havent tried yet but are in the queue.

antihero brown bomber. all my AH decks have been super tough and currently are still serviceable today. the decks in question didnt fit the dims that i like now, but this one sure does. might be little flat, but everything else looks good
8.86
32" length
14.25 wb
6.875 nose
6.625 tail
.375 concave

assuming you dont like shaped boards, the popsicle option i would check out is the baker kader logo
9.0
32" length
14.25 wb
6.875 nose
6.5 tail
.5 concave

hopefully you arent against riding shapes because finding a popsicle at the dims you are looking for isnt easy, theres usually one dimension that fucks everything up imo. what i have seen a lot is "everything is perfect, but 14.5-15 wb.""everything is perfect, but way longer than 32.25." "everything is perfect, but 6.875 tail." of course these are my preferences but the bigger popsicles rarely come in "regular" dims. if i end up liking the baker deck i will stockpile that shit no question. its literally a unicorn if you look for these sorts of decks weekly.

id easily say im a better skater on shapes cause at this deck width, the shapes have more "tech" minded dims than the popsicles. get used to them if you want to ride wide boards and not just as a cruiser. hope this helps

Thanks for the thoughts.

I have been looking at the P8 but I really don’t think I would like to ride a shaped board.

I have thought about the 1991 shape before, but I am really wanting a popsicle shape.

Seems like PS Stix are becoming less popular as the years go on. I read a lot about soggy wood which doesn’t make sense. How can Paul Schmidt allow for low quality? He has a PHD in plywood.

I actually found a 9” Polar popsicle so maybe that is the move?



Thanks again

it helps to know what dims you like so if it matches you preferences, you know what youre buying, this deck is too long in length, tail, and wb for me so i never considered it, but you might like it

Anyone know who presses Visual Skateboards?

Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

Those are some weird sized boards: 8 x 31.25 x 14 looks way too short for me.

Shit they are still around!? Last recall them taking in the Status guys after that brand folded.

Elenex is done by the James Bros (Rod and Steve) while I haven't skated a elenex board, I did have a finesse deck last year that had the notch on the top. I thought that was a BBS sig? Either way, it was a great board.

Anyone tried GX1000 boards? I know they're PS but I tried a homies and it felt very strange and unlike a lot of PS boards I've tried in the past. Maybe old stock or something but it felt soggy as fuck right out of the shrink.  Contemplated getting one as the shape is pretty right on but wanted to see other opinions.

Same shapes and dimensions as Quasi. I've been on Quasi's for over a year now, I love the wood and shapes. I'd recommend

Don't remember if you guys have mentioned this yet. Some of the World reissues weren't screened by Screaming Squeegees. Some ppl claiming China wood too. Insta comments are interesting, World now owned by a Canadian tire company? Is there one? Canadian Tires is a chain of auto parts stores, eh?

It's just an alignment mark for drilling the holes, nothing exclusive or unique to BBS. Or to phrase it another way - BBS decks often have them, but the presence of one does not mean its a BBS deck.

I usually ID BBS by the sticker/sticker placement. There's some brands that have custom stickers (black label and primitive come to mind) but they mostly seem to be in the same place between the truck holes, while PS stickers are above that. The BBS stickers usually have "made in Mexico" at the bottom as well. I'm sure there's better ways of doing it, that's just what I use.

also 8 x 31.25 x 14 is fairly common actually... I've been seeing PS 8" decks that are around that or sometimes even shorter, and I think powell does one around that size too. I've got a 8.125" x 31.13" PS deck and it was a little weird at first but I adjusted fairly quickly and really like that little bugger now... for whatever reason I feel like its easier for me to adjust to a 1/2" difference in length than a 1/8" difference in wb.

But can you name all the boards they copied? They obviously thought: Penny have made a fortune ripping off old plastic boards from the 70s, we'll do that and also rip off these and see if the public will go for it. The public didn't.

Idk but you've got me curious. That Beamo board is trippy.


In other old schralper news..
Dogtown is using PS Stix for some stuff. Modern concave OG shapes, Black Ice slicks, and popsicles with wheelwells? The reissue stuff is (was?) Watson?

this is possibly true, Canadian Tire owns a ton of things including INA/FLG who liscense and distro brands....2014 they acquired World.  Might have changed by now though....

Hey, sorry. Just saw Dogtown under PS Stix. For some reason thought Watson had been doing everything.

On what board?

One update:

All I Need is BBS

Also I know this was brought up in last year's thread but I've recently heard it from 2 other reliable sources - apparently Chapman doesn't press boards anymore and they're just using Clutch blanks. That also made me totally re-assess my opinion of Clutch because I wasnt impressed with the meridian board I skated last year but I absolutely love the "chapman" coda deck I have now.

I can't say the brand but I did compare to the ones that came before with a sticker.

They also have a new stamp under the truck "7 K"

That hurts to hear about Chapman.

One of my buddies has his decks pressed by Clutch and imo they used to suck but lately they've been way better.

I had a brujaria and a local company both on clutch and I thought it was pretty good. Brujaria I don’t even think I chipped. I chip boards often

Anyone got Maxallure wood? Was mentioned south central in other thread.
https://maxallureskateboards.com

Don't quote me on this but from the pictures I've seen it looks like maybe bbs? The sticker is in the right place and they do custom stickers for some companies so that's a possibility but then again any time I see a company selling decks that cheap I always kind of suspect that it's china wood. I ordered one of the mystery boxes so I'll update when I get it.

At any rate I don't think it's SC, I've never seen them do the sticker under the plastic thing before. Even the custom "Flat as Fuck" stickers on DOA decks I've had were outside the plastic.

Can anyone give me an idea of WKND shapes? It seems like they make mellow concave and medium concave. I don't like mellow concave but also don't like too short of a tail. I haven't bought an actual pro company board in like 5 years and our 1 shop only carries the worst fucking brands that the kids buy. Otherwise no shops near me for like 60 miles. Thanks fellas.

Anyone wanna ask for wb dimensions? Mainly curious about 8.75, 8.5, 8.25

I'm not 100% on this either but what buttfart is saying could be right. I have a vague memory of seeing an early checkered Maxallure deck on Generator's insta. Probably a couple years back now and I can't find it. Google images show some top pics, there's some custom stickers and some with a warning sticker. I don't memorize who uses what stickers but they have a BBS feel, definitely no serial number (PS Stix).
Karl also had an insta vid that shows his putting on a heat transfer. SC is in bama. Unless Maxallure is doing graphics in-house this vid should have been shot at the woodshop or screeners. I'd guess a west coast place. Didn't look like BBS but maybe a back corner of Generator?

Fwiw, when Primitive had that crazy sale last year decks were $18 shipped. BBS wood.

I was curious as well and asked via Maxallure IG and said they didn’t know for the top of the head and the warehouse opens tomorrow. (Sale ends tonight
