The Baker B2 and DLX Full SE are not in the same ballpark as WKND/FA/AWS when it comes to square nose/tails.

The B2 is more like a full/DLX SE as it isn't pointy.
The Max Schaaf board I have is. But you also have to take into account that he's a vert/transition skater so that's probably why it's more squared than a normal full se.

Sorry if this is too tangential, but it's related: can't find my usual antihero/dlx shapes (8.25/8.4x32) so I ordered a 8.25 FA because I wanted to try a shorter wheelbase. I mostly notice the difference in width between 8.25 and 8.38/8.4 boards where the nose and tail taper, so I figured a square 8.25 would feel at least a bit more like the slightly tapered  8.4 on flip tricks. I was worried the FA 8.38 would just feel too fat past the bolts by comparison. Good call, bad call, or jam it, nerd?

Polar popsicles seem to fit the bill too. They also have the Arigato if you're interested in trying something really, really square, but it's only available in 8.38 (please pontus give me a bigger arigato)


I too, also, as well, would fuck with an Arigato in the 8.75" range.
Pontus, you could make it up to me for discontinuing my favorite, the P8 shape (at least it seems to have been discontinued; not a one to be found in the states.) Maybe call it the Ari-gordo?

I have the Ariagato 8.38 but I hung it up..Tapered to much by the tail agree with 8.75

Welcome Ryan Lay is like an ariagato but 8.6. Much nicer.

Numbers Edition Koston is similar to FA

My buddy at legend skates just put out this one, if you are ok w the graphics. Comes w free tshirt too

Also creature and winkowski powerply.

Magenta used to make really good square boards in all kinds of width from 8 to 8.6 but they haven't made any recently and aren't planning on making them anymore from what I heard. Loved those.

Always wanted one of those magenta boards!
Arigato and Ryan Lay do look similar but the welcome has ridics wheelbase, I respect Ryan even more now knowing he can do that type of skating on those dimensions

Yeah exactly his shape is nice but a WB > 14.5 feels terrible imo

Yeah, they're really good. Easy to adapt to and they look pretty rad. Love that big tail, makes tailslides and bluntslides easier, you can totally sit on them.

I had 5 or 6 of those then got another 2 and heard they weren't gonna make any more of these. Been skating the one I currently have set up for a year (I have 4 setups in rotation), gotta make it last! Gonna set up the last one soon. Equally hyped and sad, haha.

Always a great feeling to hear that my dream shape existed and was discontinued before I knew it existed. Swear I'm boutta just do a drifter run and try to flip the extra decks at skateparks.

I was at the shop yesterday and they had one of the best selections I'd seen in a while, so I got to do a bit of shopping around based on what I'm into lately instead of just taking what they've got, like it's been the case for the last 6 months or so.

My square-ish deck related findings:

AWS/ Habitat - looks like FA/ Hockey, but elongated.

Doomsayers - pretty much a mellower FA/ Hockey, maybe a hair longer, but still on the short side. Excited to try one.

DLX Full SE - 8.5 is WAY more square than I expected, but 8.38 is definitely pointier. Go with the 8.5 if you want the super full nose and tail.

Passport - also pretty squared off, not as much as FA/ Hockey, closer to Quasi. Ended up getting an 8.6 PP. Feels really really good and roomy.

These will be available January or February. Both on the square-ish Clutch O shape.
First graphic is on 8.38 and 8.63, second one on 8.25 and 8.5.

Pretty sure itís right at 14.5. Unfortunately, they do a big up charge for changing dimensions.

Yes the REAL 8.5 full se I'm skating is amazing. Almost like a quasi with more concave. I'm going to buy this shape from now on.

Are the kicks steep or mellow on the Full SE shape?

I'd say they're pretty medium/ the concave you expect with DLX boards. They're stamped, so you can use that as an indicator and find which one on the press feels best to you. Definitely not as steep as FA/ Hockey, which is my biggest gripe about those boards.

The roger tugboat shape has a square-ish nose and tail and I think all of Max Taylor boards are on that shape and you should support max Taylor because that dude is fucking wild and doesnít get the respect he should

Yeah I think they use the same shapes as quasi. Got one ready to go next and it feels about the same as what Iím used to.
