larger than 8.5, smaller than 9
32.5 or longer
wb under 14.5

https://www.tactics.com/there/marbie-slow-song-85-marbie-custom-shape-skateboard-deck

the marbie shapes says 32.2 so its almost there.
Tactics.com can sort by width and wheelbase, but not length.

So you are looking for fairly long boards, medium to short wheelbases with longer kicks?


I think there are quite a few in that category, but more than anything, if you drilled back the tail on some boards, I think you would have pretty much those dimensions.

Overly long boards usually have overly long wheelbases to match, sometimes with big kicks, but more often than not they have kicks that are more nomal, 6.5 to 6.6 tails and 7 or so noses.


A board with 32.5 length and shorter wheelbase is going to have 7.1 or more nose and 6.75 or more tail.


At first glance, without having to change anything, have you tried Alien Workshop 8.75 boards, 14.25 wb and long kicks with a fairly long overall length.  I have one here that almost feels too long and wide when compared to other similar width boards with longer wheelbases and maybe more proportionate dimensions, but that might be a good start anyway.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

The 33x8.5 Quasi

Donít forget PS measures surface length so itís probably closer to ~32.6 relative to how other board companies measure. Still within the desired 32.5 and up length, but I thought it was worth noting.

For anyone interested, and who may be a fan of South Central wood like I am.  Here is a (Square Tail) shape from them that Highwater Skateboards uses, figured I'd catalog it here.


Dims are 8.5" at the widest
              31.5" L
              8.375"  front truck
              8.125"  back truck
              14.25" WB
I was a little surprised when I got it as I was expecting more of their standard 8.5 popsicle shape with a squared tail but it's definitely more shaped and tapered than that, smaller too.  Anyway, I couldn't find much info on dims for it so figured I'd add it here now that I have it. 

Get hungry on it!

  • Just deck / woodshop info


The latest batch of Habitat decks sold in EU have made in china stickers.

I saw that on latest Suciu Lone Wolf and Mosaic 20 Years twin decks.
Those decks seems bit wider than older BBS pressed Habitat twin decks, like they are 8.375x32.3 with 14.44wb (declared dimensions are 8.375x32.25 with 14.375wb), with very slight taper to square nose and tail, noses are still like 1-2 mm longer than tail (nose and tail are like 6.9-7 long), bit mellower kicks than on BBS pressed decks.

Older Habitat BBS pressed twin tail decks were 8.3x32.2 with 14.44 wb with straight full rails, square nose and tail are around 6.9. Deck dimensions are little bit shorter and narrower than stated on Habitat site (8.375x32.25 with 14.375wb, sometimes it was said that wb was 14.25).

Like old Stefan Janoski Place Setting series deck that comes with made in Mexico sticker was declared as 8.375x32.25 with 14.25wb, no mention of deck being symmetrical in descriptions and deck actual dimensions were 8.3x32.2 with 14.44wb and deck is twin shaped.

If you are able always try to check those decks in person because specs seems to be all over the place.

Thanks for the info too.

Does anybody know who makes bold decks? Or what bold laminates is, in case they make it themselves?

This german shop sells their blank decks and those decks are actually really damn good.

https://www.skateshop24.de/skateboards/blank-decks/

There's a list with all specs if you click on any of them and scroll down

It is an interesting one to try to find any info on so most likely they "branded" the blanks they get in to give them a bit more of a name as the same place gets in Moose, Control and others too.

They appear to be something similar to Dwindle, maybe Jeeping or more likely Excel woodshop, as they say from China and they are the main ones there, but I really don't know any more about them.


This looks like who brings them in, pretty much all the same info there too:

Bold SP Blank Skateboard Deck Low
The blank decks from BOLD Laminates are high-quality skateboard decks made from 7 plies of Canadian maple.
This wood, also known as "Canadian maple" in English, has always been the most suitable wood for skateboards due to its stability and durability.
The boards from BOLD Laminates are individually pressed (single-press). This gives each board the perfect and always the same shape. The wood layers are cold-pressed with ultra-strong epoxy resin.
The slow drying of the adhesive without the addition of heat results in boards with an extremely powerful and, above all, long-lasting pop. As one of the largest woodshops in China, the skateboards from a number of well-known manufacturers from the USA are also produced here.
The boards come with 3 colored stained layers, top, middle and bottom. It looks really good and gives the boards a classy touch. The colors of the colored layers are randomly selected and cannot be selected individually.
