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

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 >:(
[close]

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.

Damn, I wanted to join the cult!!

Spring 2023. Looks like the only Huffer before then is the John Herndon Hug the Pavement, so plan your Huffing accordingly.

Don't tell Dear Cult Leader but I usually have a discrete Loveseat or Couch set up among my Huffers. My goal is switch 360 flips before age 48. And then I think I can take it to a Huffer... Ssshhhh....

Huffer Herndon

I saw one of these at the shop recently. I didnít need it but I NEEDED it, yíknow? It spoke to me.

It checked all the boxes. Cardiel, Purple top stain, Blue bottom stain, Cardiel, IV stamp, dope graphic. Plus Iíve been keen to try a Huffer for and join the cult for a while.
Also, Cardiel.

Couldnít help myself. It practically floated itself into my hands.

Now I just have to behave myself by not setting it up because I donít need another setup.

Ok going to set it up now brbÖ

Soooo I bought a Huffer months ago, set it up a few times but always ended up not using it. I'm normally a fan of a chunky nose and squarer tail.

After seeing this thread I thought it would be rude NOT to set it up and actually skate it.

I didn't expect it to be THIS good, I'd have almost sworn before hands down it would be naff, but it's incredible. Hard to put my finger on it, but it just feels...right?

Hell Yeah, that's the magic of the Huffer. when the shape first came out it was not something I was interested in  at all. too wide, too long of a wheelbase but then i finally broke down i got a little taste of whatever secret sauce is involved... it was over.

i believe, its all about proportions. tail length to wheelbase. and the shape of the tail, nose and rails, combines to make a very large board, more nimble.

welcome to  the cult.

Huffer with the IV stamp
AF1 66s w/ hollow axle
1/8Ē risers
F4 OG Classics 55mm
Swiss 6

Iím excited to try the Huffer shape.
Might swap the wheels for larger OG classics.


Well, Iíve tried it and Iím loving it so far. Iíll be getting more Huffers in the future for sure. Iím sold.

I did put some bigger wheels on it before todays session though. Couldnít resist. I probably will end up trying the 55 OGís on it even though it was super fun with the 58ís today.

I donít think Iíd size down the trucks because I just like big trucksÖbut who knows. Iím a sucker for just trying things to find out which is how I ended up here loving big trucks and Huffers. Just havin some fun.

Itís definitely more nimble feeling than the 9Ē popsicles Iíve skated in the past despite having a longer wheelbase.

Just looking at it makes me want to skate.

Anyone in the know, know if the Grimple Huffer is going to be a slick?

Is that what we all asked for when we hammered DLX with requests?

I don't recall it saying "SLICK" on any of the info I saw.

Never know though.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

I have a lightly skated Huffer eagle that I'm not really feeling ATM. If anyone can pickup in the bay area near SF, I'm down to give it away. Shoot me a PM.

Just picked up one of the newish Cardiel huffers like DeepSpace9mm setup above. Very, very stoked to check it out. I have a Polar football going now and then a Polar 1991 Jr. Huffer will come next.

Took this Huffer out today. Iíd been on a Polar 8.75 football shape the last few weeks.

My first time on a Huffer shape and itís one of the most comfortable decks Iíve skated. Iím mostly carving up bowls and this shape is perfect.

has anyone tried the huffer on 169 vs 159?  I loved it with 159s but I no longer have them.  I do have some 169s though.

Iíve ridden it with both. 169s will hot rod a little bit, but I prefer them over 159s for the stability and extra width. I also skate transition 99% of the time, so it might not be the best if you flip your board

Yeah I had the exact opposite experience, I initially set it up with Ace AF1 66's (9" axle) and it wasn't working so I went down to Indy 149s and that unlocked it for me, but I mostly ride street or curbs on mine.

169 seems like it would be too wide but it's worth trying!

Thanks dudes.  I haven't flipped my board in 6 months so I'll give this a shot
