It's getting to the point that we need an automated response bot for all the people wondering about the wheelbase. As many have said, for some reason the dimensions work really well together, this is coming from someone who refused to skate anything bigger than 14.5.

The shape makes it feel way more nimble as the dimensions might make it seem. Out of my 3 current setups, a 9 inch square tail Zane Timpson and a 10 inch Heroin Mutant this one is definitely the easiest to do flip tricks on while still giving you the advantage of riding a wider board.

Amazing how it works. I wonder if it's because the longer tail offsets the wheelbase, along with he tail shape being conducive to flips? I don't know but the Huffer flips better for me than most any other board I have had in recent memory. Could just be b/c I am 6', 200 lbs with size 12 feet. Many I was making life unnecessarily difficult trying to skate smaller boards... Gall Bless CK1 and Cardiel.

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.
[close]


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:

Edit:

This one and yes it looks quite like it, as said in a scaled down version.

WIDTH
8.5
LENGTH
31.7
WHEEL BASE
14.125

This shape needs to come back

Canít compare the huffer and the blue meanie without being entirely subjective and saying the huffer is better. If Iím being honest.

Also hereís footage of ishod in the huffer.
Well I have like 9 Andy Anderson dated flight decks.

I have both set up right now and I agree. The huffer is a much better, do it all shape. skates like a much smaller board. The blue meanie is a fun deck but its more of a cruiser. Very long and not super responsive.

I had a lot of fun with the Blue Meanie and my expectations were actually sort of low for the huffer. Thought it would just be a fun shape I pulled out at certain sessions. Now it's my main board, I don't even really pull out my popsicle anymore. Huffer is a fun, shaped deck but it also has some magic that makes it skate like a smaller board.

I had one a few years ago on ace 55s and my buddy said I was doing my best skateboarding in years on it. I just ordered one of those cheap girl boards, hopefully it works out.

Hate to be a downer but I think Ishod was on the Tommy G shape not the Huffer.

Anyone riding a huffer on ventures? Been trying to stick to one truck but this shape just looks really nice to meÖ

I tried a dane1 and it became a cruiser quickly. I do my best skating on 8.25 pops idk why i do this to myself

I personally think ventures would work well with that shape, ideally If the trucks are 8.75Ē (6.1 in venture nomenclature).

A guy I know who also has taken to the Huffer shape.

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!






This board and a Sandoval zero board are the only two boards Iíve ever not liked.

I have the blue cardiel eagle still in plastic. I donít like that the nose is narrower that the tail. Something about it feels wrong to me. Iíve thought about riding it backwards but my ocd wonít let me

The Sandoval was a popsicle that got fatter in the back and took me a minute to realize why it felt off. I gave it away after a session

Both boards felt weird under my feet. This AH deck has been sold for a few years now so other people must like it

I have the same one on ice. Kind of been more of a Dane1 than a Huffer these days, but I know I am going to want to have one again at some point.

I've owned 5 Huffers and all of them have had light green tops. Convinced me for a bit that it was all that is out there, but seeing these other ones gives me hope that I may get an orange, brown, or red.

Got the same Curbageddon Huffer, one almost done and 2 on ice. Got them in a turquoise, yellow and dark green top ply so there definitely are different ply combinations out there, but I've personally never seen a BBS red ply top before.

Just set up that same one. Only got 15 minutes on it but I like it. Wasn't feeling great when I skated it (had a stomach bug start to kick my ass just a couple hours later) but I snapped a kickflip that felt great with it.

Not only was I feeling guilty about CCS, I accidentally had those fuckers grip the board.  Might be the first time since my literal first board that I didn't do the grip. Feels icky, but the shape seems to be everything I was hoping for.

Re red top ply on BBS - thankfully there have not been that many.  I had a couple of the AH black eagle 8.12 decks a long time ago and had seen a couple more around that same time in other graphics, then maybe a run of a certain Polar board had red top and bottom, but all up I don't think it has been a colour that is often used for tops, more for the middle "indicator" layer in Element and a few other brands.

There have been a whole lot more variations on colours more recently though, which is pretty cool to see, but the old traditional yellow, light green, mid and dark blue, orange and a few others are the most common.  Teal and mauve / pale purple has also been one I have seen a lot more of, as well as brown, charcoal, grey, pink...


* Almost forgot to say, been riding the Huffer I have as a cruiser for a few "family adventures" recently and it certainly holds up for a board I can just roll around the streets on as well as do a few laps of skateparks too, the 60 mm 90 duro wheels are good for everything on it, without trying too hard to actually do any normal skating.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Iím sure Iíve had a polar red top (my memory is burnt, but Iím pretty sure, it was from early on when the graphics were especially nice), wasnít mad at the red at all.
Pretty sure both my huffers were natural brown looking top ply
