Are you measuring the top or the graphic side? None of my surfs go over 8.75.

Excuse the carpet, the pups shedding season is in full effect.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I had an old deck, trucks etc lying around so I decided to buy the biggest softest wheels I could find, slap them all together and make a cruiser and this is what I ended up with.

Organika 8.1
Thunder 147
Bones soft bushings
Big ass risers
Enjoi wheels, 62mm 83a

What trucks should I use for this?

SURF JR. SPECIAL SHAPE - WITH WHEEL WELLS
8.75" (WIDEST POINT) X 31.5"
NOSE: 6.25"
WHEEL BASE: 14.375"
TAIL: 6.5"
[close]
On shaped boards like that, you don't base your trucks on the widest point (that's egg shit.)
Rather, you base them on the narrowest point (usually the back truck).
Reason is, if you hot-hod your back truck, then you're foot will hit the wheel while pushing, and you'll eat shit.
So, take the width at your rear truck, and that's your answer.
Prolly around 8.5 in your case...maybe less depending on the width of your wheels (which makes a huge difference.)
Indy 159
Ace 55
[close]
Well, while we’re on the subject, here’s my setup with that same board. Indy 149s. Feels awesome.

[close]

 Lookin good.

What wheels are those?
They’re Bones. Can’t remember which wheel exactly, got them for free from a friend who skates for them but they’re actually really great. I’ve been riding them with the cruiser/filming setup for several months now. It felt funny setting up this board with them but I’m hyped!

Think that will work?

Just got my first cruiser today as a Bday gift from my girlfriend (well, she paid, I chose everything  ;D )



Frog Pat G (9.875)
Ace AF1 77 stock
OJ Plain Janes 87a 58mm.
Bones Reds
Santa Cruz Slimeline Rails
Diamond 1/8 Raisers
Bronze 56k Allen bolts 1inch.
Jesus Grip + Random Clear Grip

So stoked on how it came out. Went to the park and had a fun test drive already. So different from my usual 8.25 deck, feels like skating a tank!

I consider this deck a ‘Street Masher’. You can use it as a cruiser but it is much more versatile. It’s basically an old skool set-up with soft wheels. You should get a pair of Spitfire 97a conical full 56mm or 58mm for a true old skool set-up with modern components. This should also be in big boys with 9 inchers or whatever we call that thread...

Oh, sorry! Noob hour here  ;D I surely got it more as a cruiser than a ATV skateboard because the streets in Germany suck to roll in hard wheels... altho I do see the potential you’re talking about. I’ll post it on the other thread then.

I like your setup a lot and if my post came of as a lecture that was not what I meant. It’s a great cruiser but I just wanted you to show people in 9+ who may not look at this thread.

If you put slime balls 95a 60mm on this you would basically have the skateboard I started with, which is why I suggested the modern day equivalent.

Imagine power sliding down a hill with this. The width would allow you to really control your slide. I have a Dane 1 and I have just been trading out the wheels from Bones Rough Riders to Spitfire F4s depending how I want to skate. You are gonna realize that besides flip tricks this deck can do it all...

Impulse bought the deck while getting some griptape and here we are.

The Doh Doh yellows I just got are fucking terrible, trying to find Bones mediums locally before just ordering online

It's been said before but it's worth repeating. Bones is blowing it by not having a conical full shape wheel in the G-Slide formula. Just letting NHS drink their milkshake with those Keyframes.

Figured this might be the best place to ask... Can you run OJ Super Mini Juice wheels flipped? Just put some on and they hot rod in the rear a touch and sit flush when flipped. I've never ran offset wheels, so I'm not sure.
