Got a Cardiel Mescalero Huffer new in box for sale. $50 and we split shipping? Will toss in a sheet of Jessup.

Another great one …

I'm convinced the original Snuff must have had a smaller wheelbase than the reissue.

Also, thank God skateboarding has people like Lucero.

I am still watching that video (which is so good!!) but John said he skated the original board, but not the later ones as the wheelbase was too short, so maybe the Copenhagen graphic did have a longer wheelbase, maybe not super long, but at least longer than the candy graphic or other boards.

He says that at 14:50 or so.


The only board I recall having from that era was from about 1992, The Firm Lance Mountain board just over 9" with a 14" wb that I still have, only now in two pieces, but the board before that was way longer with double drilled holes.

Almost forgot to say, but it was the closest to the Huffer shape of any board I have ever had, now looking back on it.

Couldn't take it anymore. Ditched my 8.4 Grimple at the park and set up an old Phawt. It took a few minutes to get used to a big 9"er+ again but then I did one of my most satisfying flatground kick flips in months.

Its going to be really hard for me to stray too far from the Huffer/Snuffer/ Phawt once I used all everything else...

I finally decided to jump ship and set up a huffer. After some time skating a Bannerot loveseat, this board has felt like the next best thing for me. Two sessions in and I’m thoroughly enjoying it.

Also running some well worn Ace 55s on 1/4" risers and Spitfire 56mm Formula Four Classics.

would the black label “snuffer,” work with af1 55s or would it be too small? anyone got the back truck measurement? really liking the shape just don’t want to buy af1 60s or 151s if i don’t have to!

I think 8.5" axle trucks work great with the shape, so AF1 55s should be fine. It's a little magic carpety, but it makes the board way more flippable imo. Good for a fun all around street set up.

On the Huffer, the width of the deck at the back truck (where the axle sits with Ace AF1s) is 8 3/4". While on the Snuffer it appears to be closer to 8 7/8"(maybe a tad under). Snuffer seems to be the tiniest bit wider than the Huffer overall

I think you could get away with any 8.5" to 9" axle trucks but I'd personally go with Af1 60s/ 66s or Classic 55s.

But the more @BartHarleyJarvis posts about using 8.5" trucks the more likely I am to try one day.

All to say, ride what you got and report back.

Just realized the Huffer is exactly a shaka wide. (Thank you  Lucero)

Good God, it just keeps giving and giving.

Just measured the one at my local.



The wheelbase is 14.75"

Over the front bolt holes where the axle would be is 8.75"

Over the back bolt holes where the axle would be is 8.875"

I've skated 8.5" for 7 years until I realised how much I loved my Creature 9.75" Allen Losi cruiser with a 15" wheelbase and couldn't get off it even when fall season was over... I felt so comfortable with that setup that I tried the 9'' AntiHero eagle and since then, my bag of tricks has grown non-stop. On my third Huffer now and I even set one as a cruiser because I can get enough of that shape. Being a tall guy, I feel it gave me the balance for transition and stability for flatground I couldn't get from riding small boards. Huffer 4 Life!

P.S. We should design some stickers for the club/cult of the Huffers, just throwing that as an idea!

If any of you are arty graphic designer types, please  come up with some sticker ideas. I am certainly not but here is my first stab at an idea.
I'd think 5" x3" would be as big as we want them to be.

threw this together to shake off some photoshop dust, if y'all like it and want a slogan or w/e that can happen. i could also probably spend more time on that stroke, but everyone gets the idea lol

Hahha. That's rad. Some thoughts.

Need to come up with something for the blue section up the top. Possibly a little nod to Lucero with "A Shaka's width wide?" Or maybe a Cardiel quote....?

"Unsafe. Toxic Skateboard." on the warning label?

Change the AP to AH?

And maybe the fluid Oz measurements should be 9.18?

Pls Deer Man don't hit me with the cease & desist.

The glue bottle is a great idea as well! I still got the last of my 3 curbageddon Huffers on ice that I wanted to save until another Huffer with a graphic I like drops, but this thread got me yearning to set it up and ride one again.

Not a cult member so feel free to disregard this but you could also change the 271mL to 233mm(metric width of Huffer)
