Iíve been skating them for a few months. No complaints.

Do you or anyone else on here know the wheelbases/lengths of the popsicles?


I love 9s but the 9x33 is huge. 9x32 like the Baker/Kader would be better.

I think they made both

9x32/14.5wb is sexy as fuck

All the shapes with dimensions are listed here in the Woodshop thread:

Yes the 9 is the long one, 9 x 33 with 15 wb.

I recall seeing the shorter 9 being used by Black Label more recently, as well as someone posting about a skate shop that had those dimensions, can't remember exactly who though, somewhere around SF or similar place but it could have been someone like Black hole skate shop, but that was from a while ago now.

A few options to try at least.

Thanks G

Tyshawn seems like the kind of guy to hate everyone at least a little bit

.

Just adding on to that:

Might have been Old Skull skate shop as they have BBS boards and someone had one in the setups or big boards thread a while back.

They had the very out there graphic, but it was BBS wood and they still show the 8.75 in stock with 14.5 wb, whether it actually is or not, I don't know.

Any which way, the first page of the Woodshop thread also has a shop boards list too, which I try to keep updated, although I think shops change up their boards more often than big brands do.

https://www.slapmagazine.com/index.php?topic=120409.msg3729105#msg3729105


It still doesn't quite help with the way shorter Baker Kader board shape, which was 9 x 31.8 or so with 14.25 wb on it, which might work for some, but was also difficult to get hold of after that initial run and then seems like very few come up after that, maybe just the OG logo or a T Funk board or two I think.

Compared to the generic board shapes that BBS / Generator has, the big brands are the ones who dictate what comes out in various other shapes and sizes, which means they might be harder to track down or more expensive, but at least it would be worth it for you, rather than riding something that is too big, or just not quite right in whatever standard dimensions there are.

I just can't stand looking at a blank... and stickers don't do the board justice..

idk but blank always has its own simplicity for me. there's bunch of good simple graphics, i know, not to mention there's a lot of artist who makes good board graphic too. but the blank canvas with slide marks satisfies me more.

Au contraire, Mon frere: there is nothing quite like the spectacle of destruction wrought upon a deck with a beautiful graphic on it.

Awe fuck, I barely remember this.

But you know who made blanks look cool?

FUCKING PROS!

So many older skate videos had pros riding blanks. Or you see and add with a pro on a blank with a sticker and the minimalism of it, looked cool. Also, I remember there was a rumor that pros rode better boards than what was sold in stores, thatís why they didnít have graphics on them.

Yes, the white tee blank board trend in 93. The world guys used to jack the storage closet. Red tops and yellow only I think.
