Redrilled my huffer to a 14.38 wb, I am sold
Yesterday felt good. https://youtu.be/28lFkd0G-70

This is all I want/what i'm working toward. Just a nice bag of curb tricks and to grind/slide far and smooth. So dope.

I just can't ride a wb that big and with ventures it worked out perfectly.
Seems like a prime candidate to be double drilled, the stock nose seems a bit short.

agreed. double drilled mine some years back without the tool
honestly might do it again cause the shape is so good
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

Iím struggling with a wb over 14.5, well even more of a struggle. I havenít found a benefit, personally. The huffer is sick, and the tfunk shape looks rad, but yeah, possibly my limit.

@art hellman another beauty

Re-drilled = Not a Huffer.

Bad things might happen.

Getting a little worried.

There are Couches and Love Seats for that type of black magic.

I would like to retract my previous post. It was a knee jerk reaction because I fear change.

All huffers should be welcomed. OG huffers, short huffers, and phawts.

Itís the shape that matters most. If someoneís juiced on the shape, then they should be free to adjust it so it works best for them.

I apologize for being critical, I will do better and I will be better.

Re-drilling the Huffer is admitting the shape isn't perfect which is absolute heresy. Accept the long wheelbase and the wheelbase will accept you. We should keep our standards high or else it will spiral down to a stage where people are cutting their Huffers down to 8" popsicles.

where does it stop?  next you'll be commanding what trucks (brand/size), wheels (brand/size/duro/shape), bushings, risers, rails, bearings, axle nuts we need to use in order to maintain the purest form of the Huffer

Anti-Hero = hellride, so if I see any Huffers in the wild that aren't on Indys (the most hellride truck) I'm gonna start screaming and focus the deck.

Over the course of this discourse, I've come to respect your resolve.

Nearly had a fight at the skatepark This morning and this is what I return to?

I too also retract. Life is too short to judge people on their WB preferences. If itís a Huffer to you, I will respect your choice and love you no less.

My apologies for upsetting the cult, I will enjoy my bastard of a board in isolation, only checking this topic with a burner account so as not to soil thy huffer name with my bastard of an abomination.
Please forgive my sins.

I was a bit worried for a minute, but all good now.

How much did you guys drill down, was it the same as the six hole plate at 3/8" or more than that?

I could definitely see how that would work after looking at my board.

@144p and @art hellman
I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Please continue to post more Hufffer clips. We were wrong to question you. That is clear now.

I used the wheelbase jig that was posted on the forum a while back. I canít remember the name but I bought the one with 3/8 spaced holes. Well worth the money.

Someone's got to go big mode and re-drill it to an even bigger wheelbase like this.

Chems tool or something, but yeah the 3/8" is what I was thinking would be best.

That is the original 6.87 nose with 3/8" makes it more like the usual 7.25 or so anyway.

I just used the Indy 159 six-hole baseplate and slid everything down one slot, and then used the baseplate as the guide to drill... that's about as technical as I can explain it.  a real saint of a man advised me to be sure not to put the hardware in the closest holes to the nose, or else you'll just bash em loose on every nose/tailslide.
