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.

Thatís nearly identical to mine but Iíve got 53mm classics and no risers. Iím going to try some 55mm radials with it I think

I stared at that black Cardiel Huffer at my shop yesterday for 10 minutes because of this thread. Looks great but the WB makes me nervous

Ok

Huffer vs phawt opinions?
I got the huffer because Cory Stan. So maybe phawt is the one, but I have a pretty found memory of the way the wood felt on the huffers (my current go to board is a griffin board, and it skated way better than it feels. Meaning it sounds/feels sorta dead, but I land more stuff on it, soooo).

What @Mbrimson88 said re: the board rides smaller than its size. Normally, for me, a wb like that and Iím pretty ground bound, not gonna nollie flip etc. not claiming they look great (they never do, itís not the equipment), but in my experience if you can do a trick, you can do it on this shape.

I had the black widow, hoping it was a huffer that I could just skate with 8.5 trucks. Fuck I could not skate that thing. In hindsight, I was also skating 5.8 ventures for the first time, and just didnít chill and skate it for long enough. Truthfully anything will work. I spend too much time bothering yaíll on this forum, but a skateboard is a skateboard (I just watched some video where Pedro Barros was being thankful for having regular griptape, as in made for skateboards griptapeÖdefinitely reminded me of what a privileged kook I am).

Absolutely adoring this thread. This is home!

Quick little fun fact about how great this shape really is: ishod learned how to skate transition on a huffer.
[close]

Fuck! Now Iím gonna NEED one of these.
I want to hear more about this please.

You absolutely must get it dude, they are perfect. It took me for ever to find and to save everyone else the headache of trying to find it, I screen capped it for all my pals.

https://youtu.be/RDIQMNA04gA

Also, hereís the last huffer I had set up, I be got two more on ice though!


He has the exact same look as my stepbrother, who I DO NOT respect.

Huffer vs phawt opinions?


The Phawt is slightly more straight outline and not as 'football.'

Here's the breakdowns I have in detail:

Huffer

Length 32.5" with tape pulled, 32 3/4" with tape flat.
WB 14.75" on the money.
Tail: 6.75" (maybe a smidge shorter)
Nose: 6 7/8" (maybe the tiniest bit longer but def under 7")
Width at front holes of front truck: 8 5/8"
Width at back holes of front truck: 8 7/8"
Width at widest point: 9 1/8"
Width at front holes of back truck 9" (maybe a tad narrower)
Width at back holes of back truck 8 3/4" (maybe a pubic hair width shorter)

Phawt

Length 32.5" with tape pulled, 33 with tape flat.
WB 14.75" also on the money.
Tail: 6.75"
Nose: 7" (maybe the tiniest bit  under 7")
Width at front holes of front truck: 8 5/8"
Width at back holes of front truck: 8 7/8"
Width at widest point: 9 1/8" (maybe a tad thinner)
Width at front holes of back truck 8 3/4"
Width at back holes of back truck 8 5/8"


All in all I'd say the Huffer has slightly better dimensions, shape and concave. Phawt has a squarer nose and tail, less overall taper and football/ egg type shape. Huffer has the unique feature of being wider toward the tail which I find great for smithgrnds. Phawt is still fun and you can often find them for cheap.

Also, this thread is coming along great. Keep 'em coming.

Would love to see footage/ photos of other skaters on Huffers/ Phawts but its mostly CK1... Pretty sure he was using 151s on his as 161s were not out at the time.

Cardiel obviously gets nearly al of the Huffer graphics, does anyone know if he ever rode the shape pre-accident? Maybe itís just his go-to now?

I saw Ronnie Sandoval riding what looked like a huffer but with the gonz sweatpants graphic on it at the PStone cup. Anyone know if Iím just tripping or if that really was the huffer shape? It didnít look like the regular gonz swepants shape

is the AH black widow a mini version of the huffer in terms of board shape?
[close]

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


It is easy to confuse it as they are both similar shapes, but the Black Widow was from 2019 along with some other shaped boards and fun things pre pandemic shortages and issues.

Actually a pretty good catalog all round:

Those things were so damn big, but also quite fun (to a point).

One guy I know had one on 215s and for once those trucks actually looked normal on that board, compared to always looking a little big on many other boards.


The green giant is much more "big board normal" if there is such a thing, as well as still being made and available in shops, so if you were after something like that, the green giant might be easier to get hold of, as well as fun for everything.

I used to be in the same boat as you, only skated up to 14.5 until I got the Huffer. Someone in the egg thread posted that for some reason the wb just works and I can definitely agree with that. Huffer on 159s feels like the best of both worlds to me, it feels slim enough to flip but wide enough to feel comfortable on transition and during grinds. Not trying to shill for Antihero but if you got the money laying around I could definitely recommend you to try one even if the long wheelbase seems clunky.

For real. The growing hype around this board has me itching to get one. I have about 30 boards to go through first though. :-X

The dimensions sound good to me as it is. Not a fan of the graphics on any of them, maybe thatís why I havenít had one yet.  :)

Always full of helpful information, brimerino!  I usually have a jumbo setup with 10Ē trucks in the quiver, so an olí Yeller would fit in. Iíve got 3-4 boards in the queue that are the same flavor profile as the green giant, and fully agree with your assessment of ďbigÖ fun for everythingĒ - or at least fun for my thing.

They're sold out right now, but Sausage Skateboards does a huffer. BBS pressed and all, or at least the ones I had were.

At one point, Zumiez had them (different graphic) on $39 closeout and I got a stack of them.

The Baker Creation was almost kind of a couch/loveseat thing with a super short WB and kind of eggy. The Brown Bomber was more like a Polar Surf but with straighter rails.

I've got an ol' yeller for a cruiser. ACE 66 classics, acid soft wheels, and a rail. Its a weird, weird board to ride. Super easy slappy set up though. I traded for the deck thinking it was a beach bum
