Anyone had any issues with the wheel wells? My mate broke a board on flat the other night, was only a couple days old

I got one of those 8.75 footballs, love it
Never had a polar or a shaped board before

while cool-guying is a real phenomenon, studies show that 83% of all cool-guying incidents can be attributed to the cool-guyee being an awkward weirdo

i ride the 1992 with indy 159s. i love it bc i liked shaped boards, but also don't want to sacrifice the nose. i would be interested in try the surf shape with the wheel wells

I forgot to post this earlier, but the last polar deck I had was this Paul Grind 1992 a few months ago and I fucking loved it.


Fuck nak. 100 percent of the time he's not chill and not rad and not gnarly. He never let me pet his dog. Hes not rad or chill.

I just set up a 1992 too, and I absolutely love it too. It's my first Polar deck, and definitely not my last.

Polarís new side cuts shape is absolutely fantastic. Goes from 8.75 to about 8.38 in the back. Nice square nose and rounded tail

ive got an arigato with wheel wells and its already got 2 pressure cracks and a big chip
(haven't chipped a deck in 3 or 4 years) also i still wheelbite like crazy but thats my own fault cause i ride my trucks so loose with big wheels. personally wouldnt buy a board with wheel wells again the arigatos shape is top tier tho

I've skated two P8s back to back, probably my favorite shape from them hands down. If you like a Square tail that's not too square and a PHAT round nose then it's the one for you. Pretty much just fall asleep on top of crooks til it's time to come out.

I also had a P9 after those two. Makes flip tricks very easy but the square tail is still there so all your tricks pop nice and even.

Would love to hear what that Arigato shape is like, is it just a smaller P8?

I saw your mom do a ollie to cooch drop straight down the big black pole, it was gnarly. she defiantly shut that shit down

im pretty sure they stopped putting out p8 shapes so you should snag any that you find if you still want to ride more of them

Got a p2 and 8.75 football from this latest drop. I'm really excited to try both. Never gone shaped or about 8.5 so should be fun seeing what the first couple sessions are like.

I pulled the trigger and bought this P2



I'm riding some 5.8 Venture hi's at the moment, so we'll see how this shape meshes.

Had one sesh with this deck. My early impressions are that the pop is insane when paired with venture hiís, almost as if it was made with this truck in mind. Not crazy about my nollies with the square steep nose but Iíll see how I feel when I get used to it.

Just here to echo what @planman said about the P8 shape. Shit is magic for me. Iím on number 2 w/ 2 more on ice.
If what @off said about the P8 being discontinued is correct, Iíd better grab another couple of Ďem pronto.

I found 159s sit better on there with how much it tapers and donít feel too small up front either. 55mm but might go bigger, bit of a wheel drought in the UK at the minute.
