8.5 Board on Venture 5.25s?
« on: June 19, 2012, 04:04:06 PM »
Recently snapped my board and I'm looking into testing a larger size, I have large feet (UK12/US13) So I've been into skating boards over 8+ Inches, I recently bought Venture 5.25s to accommodate my 8.25 deck and I wouldn't be able to afford a new pair of trucks right away to match an 8.5. So has anyone ever skated an 8.5 deck on thunder 147's/indy 139's/venture 5.25s/ace 33's etc. ? and what does it look/feel like? Cheers

it feels and looks horrible to me. even riding a 8.38 on 147s or 139s are weird.
