Cult of the Huffer
« on: April 08, 2022, 07:03:21 PM »
There's a few people here who are really into this shape. Let's celebrate it, dissect it. Post 'em up. Set up shots, action shots, new graphic shots... Huffers and Phawts, let's see 'em!

Got 2 Phawts on ice from the Crail mystery box a few weeks ago. Gonna be awhile before I get around to setting them up though. Already have two boards and a 9.125" Madness deck set up and ready to go.

OK I'll stop now...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ESrCrHU1G8&t=82s

Just rewatched that part today. So so sick. The Bellingham part is the shit.

When this stuff hit I instantly got a few of the white huffers. Tried 159s, 169s, and 151 hollows. Thunders were the winner. Ultimately I think I got a little self conscious of the shaped board. My loss. It is the, by far, most functional shaped board Iíve tried. Which makes little sense to me as itís long, Iím short.
Iíd be interested in the phawt, but the bbs huffer felt indestructible/lasted for so long. The combination of the good wood, and then large shape with concave and yeah, held itís pop.

Dope thread. Wood.

I've been wanting one of these but can any of the Huffer/Phawt riders in this thread recommend what size trucks work best on these. I've got 159 and 169 Indy's on hand. I'm curious what you guys run on them.

I've got Ace AF1 66s on mine so ~9" axle and that feels pretty good. I think 169s would end up being slightly too wide.


Not everyone is made for 666' fakie to fakie sliders! My godt it's going to be a blood bath on these streets.

I have 159s on my Huffer. They fit really nicely with some 56mm F4 classics and those wooden Real 1/8" risers. Makes for a very fun setup.

It's probably my imagination, but I really prefer the feel of the 159s over my 169s. Couldn't really be more specific really, but  the 8.75" axle fits the Huffer so well IMO.

More power to you if you can skate 14.75 wheelbase!

Yeah, the 159s are it. I have 54 mm Keyframes/no risers, and it handles like a dream. Definitely my favorite crustbuster setup. Really fun and versatile.

I'd go 159. 9" trucks seem to be about the max. This shape skates more like an 8.75" IMO, so 8.75"axle trucks feel pretty good.

Yeah, something about this shape where the 14.75" does not feel overwhelming to me. Same with the shorter nose. All the dimensions just feels really well balanced. I often wondered how it would be with a shorter wheelbase like @Sonny Paluso drilled but I really don't want to mess with it.

As I get ever closer to 50, the gluttony and justÖidiocy of having multiple setupsÖfuck.
I tend to ride boards most optimized for what I try and do on a board: go slow, flip.
But if Iím thinking about riding one board, for everything: distance, transition, all of it, well the huffer was way better than I would have thought. If I was going on some skateboard camping trip, itíd be the move. Going fast is hard for me, but bombing hills with the longer wb is really helpful. Something about that particular shape was versatile, for me.
Maybe an 8.25 with a 14.75 would be better, for me, dunno.

I've thought about committing to the Huffer for a full year for that reason. I still have a couple of smaller decks to get through though. But yeah, a Huffer with Ace 60s with different F4 tyres for different occasions would do me.

Cult of Cardiel over here

Running 159s on the yellow one and 169s on the black one. I had 149s on the yellow one with cruiser wheels and that was super fun too.

For me it might be 151s, but yeah, risers and 56s for distance, no risers 52s for the parking lot. Iím not going to pretend that my tre flips donít go to dog feces with a larger wb, they ainít good, but dropping in an not only thinking about dying is pretty nice (meaning trade offs with all setups).

I am down for this thread.

The funny thing is the one I have I got on a whim a long time ago, sat on it for a while, someone else wanted something "weird and unique" to skate so he skated it for a while too, then it came back and I skated it for a while, now set up with older 159s and some 60mm 90 duro cruiser wheels with deep wheel wells I cut into it and still charging.


The one thing I feel with this board is it doesn't skate like a bigger board for me, but skates like a more normal board in a fun shape.  Some of the other smaller boards actually feel more boat like than this one does, even though they are smaller all round.  Funny how that works.


This is the only pic I have of it from a while back, but I also have another one in a newer graphic on the wall too.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

?  Black Label Black Widow?  Widow is 9.25, 14.75WB, Rueter and Adams eggs are slightly smaller huffers - huffettes, as it were.

I got this:


And it's been real fun to skate! I got Ace 66s and Spitfire Classic 54mm lifted with some lil risers I made, and I'm skurfin the streets.

If flip tricks are a must, alledgedly sizing down on the trucks and having wide wheels help that flick. Idk I just suffer either way. Noseslides don't feel any different either.

I highly recommend this shape.
