It can't be to hard to make a medium to steep deck that's..
8.75-9 inches wide
32 inches long
14-14.25 wb
Please and thank you.

If my order of uncut decks actually ship, I got this.

what are you thinking for tail length/steepness? would try one out as long as it isnt mellow with a long tail
[close]

Deck is definitely going to have a med/steep tail. For tail length probably around 6 5/8"? I don't know yet, gotta draft a shape.

Hell yeah when this happens and your interested in selling one..or two..or 15 please let me know!
[close]

Will do!

I promise I am still planning to do this.

In the mean time I cut and stained this guy yesterday, and some of you may like it. I still need to clear coat it, but I have to wait until the weather is better.



Measurements:

9.875" x 32.25" (measuring tape laid across the concave)

14" wb

7.25" nose

6.625" tail

9.875" across front bolt holes

8.56" across back bolt holes

I based it off this Dogtown tech deck I had, which was very similar to a shape I already had but skinnier. I'm planning to drill an additional ~14.5" wheelbase later on so I don't completely die on transition.



Now if only someone sold wide pink hard wheels :D

damn Breakfast you killed it, very nice!

Slimeballs are wide, can be hard, and come in pink.

Thanks for the kind words everyone! I'll be sure to update when I finally get it setup.

As for the wheels recommendations:

- Slimeballs might work, but I can't find anything 99a-101a

- I have Speedlabs currently! Great but not the best (doesn't have good flatspot resistance), plus not the width I'm looking for (58mm-60mm with wide riding surface)

- Those OJs seem great, but out of stock everywhere  :( 97a seems a bit too soft for my purposes.

I might settle for F4 OGs just to play it safe, unless I can find something else.

as a 14wb user, this reminded me of how much i hate that Tactics combines 14 & 14.25 in the same search range.

Skatepark of Tampa (SpoT) has a cool feature where you can see all the deck specs they have in stock and filter just by the specific size and wb and length you want

Fos measures edge to edge for wheel base, so it's actually 14 or 14.75 by our standards
