Off-topic, but does anyone else experience a lot of freezing pages browsing Slap on mobile? I'm using Chrome on an Android and Chrome seems to stop responding a ton lately, and it mostly happens while browsing Slap. Just wondering if it's my device/app that's causing these problems, or if it's server-side.

what truck size would you recommend for a Zip Zogger 10.75" ?
It seems that 169 Indys / 161 Thunders should work with large wheels

Some people have used Indy 215 or Thunder 181s (which is what they made them for) but the funny thing is they just kind of sit a bit too wide for comfort for most people, so yeah Indy 169s or Thunder 161s work well, usually with wider wheels if you want them to sit on the edge, or any normal wheels to sit under a bit.

Personal preference really, but here are the two examples:



posted in the big boy thread but it's TOO BIG

spillin over for the cross post



Zogger 10.75"
169 / 92a barrel bushing / khiro soft pivot cups
56mm F4 Radial (worn to 53*)
indy 1/8 risers
indy/thrasher hellride hardware
swiss 6
jessup





Gonna get weird on this thing. At first I thought this thing was stupid. Was kicking myself after passing. Scooped up 3 next chance I got

Zig Zogger 10.75 x 30
Independent 215s Chinese hanger/American baseplate
Formula Four 51mm 101 conicals

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

I always thought it was inspired by a hiking boot. Interesting that this was the first skate shoe with an EVA midsole.

Could very well be. The designer, Franck Boistel says in his Ripped Laces interview that itís based on a Nike b-ball shoe that Koston brought to them, IF he remembers correctly

Had that happen as well as when trying to embed videos(no matter how I try embedding them) they just come up as a link. Never did that until about a month ago.

im sure this has been asked in here 1000 times but does anyone have any recommendations on twin nose boards or boards with a wider tail?

im getting back into skating after 11ish years and im 6í6 and have a size 13 shoe. i already feel too big for my 8.5 shop deck. i have a 8.5 hockey deck given to me by a friend that im about to set up today so weíll see how that goes.
[close]

I'm also a 13 and I picked up a Hockey 8.75 and I've been really enjoying it. Big Square nose but it also has a really full tail, much fuller than the 8.5 shape. I also tried the 8.8 BA shape but it was too long
[close]

i skated the hockey deck today and i actually really liked it. tail is pretty big, and yeah ive been actually thinking about going up to something like a 9 but that might be a bit much.
same height same shoe size
9-9.25 feels proportional to my body (and looks right on film)
boards also dont break as often
shorter length and wheelbase is the key, 33Ē long is too much
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

Ghost pop- can u truly lay the blame on equipment? Does it just mean u gotta get a stronger popping leg? Is it a board set up issue or more to do with feet setup??

You can definitely blame the equipment up to a certain degree. I had a deck with a steeper and shorter nose than what I was used to so all my nollie tricks started to ghost pop.The extra millisecond it took for the nose to hit the ground before I needed to start flicking threw me off so much that I gave the board away after 2 sessions. I could have just took more time to adjust the way I skate instead of blaming the board but no one has time for that.

Yes, a setup too tall/steep for your preferences can definitely lead to ghost pop. Being better and having correct technique is most important but this is one of the things where setup can make an immediate difference

Ya and to be honest is it really worth re-learning all your pop timing for a deck or setup? Probably not.

Thatís one clear inspiration for sure.
Guess itís not a clear ripoff of any one shoe.

I ghost pop pretty frequently on indys or aces, whereas my pop/flick is super consistent on thunder/venture which give your board a longer effective wheelbase. That extra couple of degrees of pop angle on Indy/ace is just hard for me to adapt to

as far as the equipment, i can do any of my tricks on any board, but the first try usually looks like ass / complete fail
we are only talking a few mm usually, at most 1 cm lol
i will say 14" to 15"wb is the hardest thing for me to adjust to
height and width usually is not a huge issue for me

So my feet were going a little numb with the little paper thin insoles in my reeboks. I slapped a vans ultracush overtop. My heels sit a bit higher but damn the ride is more comfy. Am I a lunatic or a genius?

You just reacted accordingly. Beware of ankle rolls though

Personally I am less interested in the cushion aspect of the insole and more concerned with whether or not they work for the contours of my feet, so I regularly save the insoles from my favorite shoes and reuse them.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

Yeah, same. These are almost three years old and super molded at this point. I hated ultracush at first, but it really is about breaking it in and putting it in the right shoe

Absolutely on equipment to a degree! Your "muscle memory" or timing on deck/truck/wheel combo that you've gotten comfortable with will not work as smoothly on a new set up where the equipment alters one or more of the components that negatively affects your comfort.

I set up a Zero recently and while I enjoyed the big pop it offered, the steeper kicks were difficult to adjust to since my legs are used to something mellower than it (nose & tail) and I have strong legs/calves. I play soccer & skate.

Even if I changed my technique, it still didn't feel as comfortable so I switched to a mellower Hockey (shape 2: not blunt) deck and the issues with manuals and ghost pop on nollie/switch disappeared from the Zero before it.

Am I the only one that thinks boardslides/lipslides take some of the pop away from new decks? Itís in my head now so I purposely avoid anything between the trucks till itís a few weeks old.

The G052 has an oddly long feeling tail, like someone took a longer shape and just moved the truck 1/4" forward. The boards are definitely flatter, have more flat space after the bolts, then steeper kicks.
