I agree with you. @pops I do like my AF1 60s on the Huffer but that's mostly bc of width. In all honesty if there was a Classic 60 I'd go with that. No doubt AF1s are more durable but Classics just feel better.

Also... lots of Huffer footie in this...

Yeah the classics feel better to me as well. 8.75 classics would be dreamy and the af1 60s are very tempting but I just don't want to invest in another pair of trucks right now.

I believe he was on Thunders. I presume 151s but can't be sure. I am a fan of 151s when I'm not using Ace.

i was digging my boards out of the garage and thought of this thread when found my cruiser. itís a pre-COVID shop board but I remember the dude was like ďthatís Generator wood, and they let us use their DLX Grosso mouldĒ

afaik grosso didnít have a DLX shape like this so bc of this thread now Iím wondering if they meant Cardiel?

anyone put a tape measure to their huffer?
this one came out at roughly 9.25x33x15

Was torn between a huffer and a snuffer, ended up with the label because I havenít had one in a while and because the trucks I plan on using might fit a little better. Comes Tuesday so Iím stoked. Hurt my knee 4 weeks ago so Iíve been probably looking at too much skate gear. Will post when setup

It is funny what I hear come out of the mouth of the "shop dude" in any given place when I am not behind the counter, but either way it is a rad looking shape and good dimensions too.

Huffer Sr you could call it, going by the Polar trend to make Sr and Jr for bigger and smaller versions of the same shapes.


I guess the mold they were referring to could be just the length of middle / flat (regardless of where the deck bolt holes are drilled) which would add up, and not at all related to the shape of the deck itself, but I often over think things and logistics of making boards too.

Definitely need the longer mold to press a size appropriate deck to accommodate a 15" wb with the overall length and width being something that can change as much as the shape of the deck too, so for things like the Grosso decks, the orange eagle and even some slightly smaller boards, they could all use the same mold to make these decks.


I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Cult of the Quasi(not that Quasi)-Huffer

Donít think I ever posted a pic of this but itís a fucking tank and wonít quit.  Either itís flattened out or Iíve gotten used to it and itís so good right now.



Crail Phawt
55 classics
Sml V-Cut 54mm

Iíve been on longer WBs and 55s for a while and I love the combination but something that sets this apart is the wheels honestly. At first the extra grip felt prohibitive but ultimately I can revert, speed check, and do the dinky little spins and bs skrrts I like to do (especially when warming up) just fine. I canít do comically long powerslides like with F4s but thatís okay. The benefit is that the grip really opens up the feel and turn on the 55s, which I wasnít sure was even possible. I regularly skate faster and lean into such deep turns with full confidence. Feels good man. Oh and the shape is lovely of course, thatís why weíre al here. I think that off-white Eagle huffer is just about the prettiest board you could buy so Iíll officially be joining the cult whenever this phawt dies.

I have a second, unskated off-white Eagle laying around.  At this point I think I might just make it a wall hanger because it certainly is just about the prettiest board

Been riding this for about a month and I don't really see myself switching back to a popsicle now. I'm fairly tall and I'm loving the longer wheelbase. Just got a cream eagle huffer for £50 on sale so I'm pretty psyched.

My local was ordering me some decks recently and i saw that beige eagle huffer was available from his distributor. I thought of this thread and considered getting it even though i have absolutely no need or desire for it. Quickly realized that the existence of a thread was not a good reason to buy something, so I did not buy it. is this growing up?
.....Nah

I haven't been able to sell my Mescalero Huffer so I might set it up. I mostly run Thunders, 151 or 149s for this?

My preference is 149. The 8.5 trucks seem to unlock the magic for me

60mm OG Classics with 1/4" Real wooden risers.

@mattchew you will likely get Loveseats (not a bad thing). Phawts are listed as 9.125

Thanks, I'm only using 8.5 because I had them, I prefer 8.75 on everything. But it works fine, I also have 3 washers on the inside of each wheel to make them a bit wider. The Phawt shape is pretty tits.

Loveseat is the only shape Iíve skated for a year and a half so I def wonít be complaining. They didnít have an option for 9.12 box so I was hoping Phawt would be included with the 9 but maybe not >:(

He's right, I got my 2 phawts in the mystery box and I had selected 9.125

Also, I was able to stack a 20% off code and still get free shipping. I paid like 80 bucks for 2 phawts and a set of (shitty) wheels. This was a few months ago though.
