I've recently settled on one setup, feels good after years of madness.

Habitat 8.125 x 31.7 x 14 (website says 32 x 14.125)
Thunder 148 hollow lights
Spitfire Formula Four 101a, 52mm (not picky on shape)
Bones swiss
Jessup

For me it's an ATV. Bowls and slappies both feel fine!

I've never had more than one setup... Are people really running different setups for frickin slappies?

Are you guys switching setups mid-line through the park?

I have a brown bomber for when I am hurt.
Otherwise only one board for everything except vert.

* 8.12 - 8.18 DLX brands, AWS, still looking for the one
* 139 Indy Hollows, maybe 144 soon
* F4 99a classics, radial slims and wanna try lock-ins
* Modus, Blurs, Indy bearings
* Indy Bolts
* Jessup Grip

are we talking transition? or are we talking like halfpipe vert?

I meant halfpipe and any transition that's over 8 feet.
I am scared of heights. ^^

throwing on different wheels is a bit much for me. messy, easy to lose washers, and wearing out axle nuts makes it kinda a deal breaker. but i could see how it makes having one setup a little easier.

100% agree, itís not ideal lol.
If you can't handle me at my Marc Johnson, you don't deserve me at my Bobby Puleo.

I have never thought of having 2 setups, I thought only certain pros did it for "big stuff" and "tech/small stuff". Ain't nobody got time (money) for that! This is excluding a cruiser setup.

8.38 Baker (soon to be Quasi)
Indy 149 w/ Medium Blue Bushings
Ricta 54mm, 99a (next will be Spitfire Tablets, same dims)
A hodgepodge of Bronson G2 and Bones Reds
Indy 1in hardware

Used to always have a Zig Zagger setup but snapped my last one a few years back and never replaced it. I would love to do that again...

Until then it's this and this alone:

The Orchard M1 shop deck (14.1 wheelbase, 8.0 or 8.12 width both feel great). Before I found this shape I had been searching for something like it, now I order a few at a time because it feels like home.

Jessup, I skate each deck for a month before I retire it and either give it away or stash it for hard times. Jessup grip lasts me a month, no problem.

Thunder 147's with shaved down bones hards and those wooden risers from Real. Bout to get some Ace AF1's for my birthday, though.

Spitfire F4 conical full 54-56mm. Found some 56's last summer and they felt fucked at first but I quickly got used to them.

Sometimes I think about riding a wider board to make transition feel safer/more comfortable but I haven't dropped into a proper bowl in some time, plus I ride 147's so I feel more stable already. My setup feels great in the street and just fine on most park transition I skate nowadays.

As far as shoes go I usually switch between 2 models of shoe to preserve them both and enjoy the different feeling/benefits of skating different pairs. Lately been going back and forth between nb 1010's and 440's.

Right now I'm running an 8.25 theories board with 144 standard, soft red bushings and flat washers, 53mm conical fulls, G3s, mob, and shorty's phillips. I'm gonna be changing trucks to 149 forged hollows soon tho because my kingpin nut keeps coming loose on my front truck and I don't even ride loose trucks. They are quite worn tho. I also ride venture 5.8 on boards with 14" wb.

I decided to disassemble two out of three setups and sell the stuff i don't use to the kids at my local park for small money. And I leave my old decks at the park for free.
So the setup I settled on :
Killing Floor 8.18 Deck  ( I try to stay on this shape and dimensions if possible )
Indy 144 Hollow Forged
Bones Hard Bushings
Riptide Pivotcups
Spitfire Tables 53 mm
Bronson Ceramics
Shortys Allen Harware
Jessup Ultra Grip or whatever comes with the board for free.
Works the best for me.

I've only ever had one ride at a time, which is currently:
8.38 Resin-7 steep concave/kick
Ace 44 Classics
Spitfire F4 55mm 99

I love this setup but I'm always right on the verge of breaking it into like an 8.6 with my old Indy 149s (or even better, some new Ace 55s) and some 56mm wheels for bowls, and maybe an 8.25 with the Ace 44s for everything else. 8.38 feels juuust a little bulky to flip around easily, and I am also jealous of the dudes who fly around in the bowl with bigger wheels. But going up in wheel size to 56+ I will need risers and I feel like I might as well just go all in and do a bowl setup at that point.

With just the one ATV though, there is the advantage of never having to adjust to a different setup. I guess that's the only advantage....heck, you talked me into it, I'm gonna set up a bowl board!

Seems to me like you talked yourself into it  ::)

I've tried having multiple setups and it only affects my skating negatively for me. I used to have one setup with 8.38-8.5 on ace 44 (classic), 54mm classics wheels, and one setup with 8.6-8.75 with indy 159 and 56mm conical fulls. Now I only use one setup, which is 8.38-8.5 on indy 149s, but I do miss skating aces though, I might just pull the trigger on those AF-1 55s at some point, but for now I try to just concentrate on my skating instead of my gear, and it's working really well.

I have dismantled my quiver and have built a single setup. A Pal reminded me of my constant interest in a 9" popsicle setup. And I also sought wisdom of another Pal that has done this same thing recently. So I built one and made it out of everything I really wanted. This is going to be my one and only so it better click.. because I was getting anxiety having a few different options, but I still have anxiety at the moment. Not being able to afford skate shit earlier in life does a fucking number on the brain.

i donít think any of you are real, i think slap was invented by my mom to make me think people want to talk to me

One deck, two sets s of wheels.

Label Lucero 10", 15"WB (yes, I'm a Boomer).
Indy 169 (Bones hard bushings)
Spitfire full conicals for bowl, tranny, curb
Ricta clouds for cruising with my kids (pictured).

Can't do flip tricks on the wide-ass deck, but it's good for what it does.

Iím rolling on one-setup for now. Itís an 8.25 x 32 with Tensor Mag Lites and 52mm Tablets. I can do it all with this setup. BUT I have an 8.5 P2 on ice, some broken in and grooved Thunder 149s, and a brand new set of 53mm OG Classics, and rails. See where I am going with this? Iíd love to set the P2 up with the rails for sessions I just want to not leave the ground a whole lot...also good for when a regular session is winding down.

no kidding, man. I'm looking at an 8.75 polar (the one with a sheep on it) and I think it will meet all my needs. Thinking about putting up all the shit I've acquired this winter up for trade.

I have had two of the Polar 8.75 and its such a good shape. Some knowledge/advice I just acquired was to stash the stuff you know you will use away..and when stuff need replacement..you already have the shit. It looks good on paper anyways homey!

this is kind of where i'm at. i thought i would like a bunch of different boards for different circumstances, and it was fun dicking around trying different things, but skateboarding is heavy on muscle-memory and i wonder if i'm just doing myself a disservice. plus all the boards take up space.

biggest problem, and i see other people run into it, is the wheels. it seems hard to find a wheel that goes in a smooth park and crusty streets.

thanks to all who have been sharing. feel free to post up if you spend most of your time on one setup, not trying to be real exclusionary here.

Iím hoping to try out some oj nomads or spitfire 97du if and when I find them, but honestly, shit is so crusty where I live I doubt it will work as an all city solution.

i've been reading up on every pals report on 95/97a wheels cause i'm curious too, but i think some crust is so extreme you just gotta go for cruiser wheels.

i'm looking in the opposite direction though, i just want something a touch softer than bones spfs cause they are so dog shit in the streets, feels weird buying "street formula" wheels when i spend so much time in the park though.
