These came in yesterday. Probably the most comfortable shoes I've ever put on.

Skate very well too. Ordered 2 new pairs that are coming today as well. Anyone who likes blazers should definitely give these a go.

Worried about vulcanized. How thick/thin do they feel?

Definitely a Vulc feel. Very thin but not too thin, about like a blazer. The insoles are thicker than blazers and very comfy. I don’t do high impact so I can’t really speak on how they hold up to jumping down stuff. Grippy sole. Very well made and holding up good so far!

I got an EFB (Element flat bar) on the way. Very excited

I enjoy my EFB, but sometimes I hate how wide it is. For me, I have to crock on the side so the wheels on top like a ledge. Feebles and smiths feel like cheating. I would have got the round rail if the flat wasn't on clearance. Still, its'a solid rail, doesn't wobble, fits in the car.

I recently picked up these

Got my first Quasi from the shop today. 8.375" x 32.25", 14.25 WB. PS Stix and they definitely bend the tape when measuring length cause going straight across, it doesnít crack 32. Iím excited though.

Oh also some Spitfire F4 Tablets 54mm 99d. Itíll be awhile until I skate them.

My buddy who I skate with regularly has a round rail. Got the EFB  to have something easily portable, and is closer to being a ledge.

I'm not use to the round rail as I just started skating regularly again but I feel like the EFB will be a good stepping stone. Thanks for the insight!

Came for the Donny Barley, left with 2 Tony Hawk reissues:






7.5" and incredibly mellow. All 3 still had the signature BBS alignment marking on the top mounting holes.

Edit: Instagram was messing with me, re-upload on imgur

Those things look crazy from the top view.

Do you know how old they are, or roughly guess?  I come up with 2003-2004 for Barley Birdhouse from a quick search.

Also curious how much they cost, but not worried if I never find out.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Bought a brand new complete off some guy on depop for 95 bucks shipped

8.25 sci fi fantasy deck w/ mob
venture 5.6 raw
f4 99 classics 54mm
reds

Not sure I'll have any use for the trucks and extra bolts but the rest of the parts alone are worth the cost.

Yeah roughly mid-2000s when Barley and Suski were on for a brief period. Been combing through old issues of 411vm, i know he had a Pro Setup in there and he was on a Birdhouse deck.

Paid around $70 USD for each one, it was a hardcore collector looking to liquidate so it was fun to talk shop with him too.
Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

Ok

I just picked up a bunch of PS Stix decks, decent shapes and good solid boards, by the look of them.

Short wheelbases for the most part too, 8.125 with 14.0 wheelbase on one.

Picked up some stuff this weekend I'm pretty happy about. Baker Reaper for the wall. Some new Thunder 147 Hollows for $30 and new Spitfire 52mm Classics for $15 off FB marketplace. Not the biggest fan of colored trucks but I couldn't pass on that deal, especially for hollows.




yoooo I had the birdhouse one waaay back when.

shit I bought recently:

F4 Classics 52mm
F4 Classics 54mm

Real Mason Gonz oval 8.28
Anti-Hero Classic eagle 8.5

I was actually looking for a Manderson shape, but no dice.

I've been interested in that one - is the nose steep?

Not terribly, steeper than my last board which was a baker but more mellow than my northern co I had on the wall. I can take some photos and message you when I get a chance if you want.

I'm surprised Birdhouse hasn't gone down the re-issue route more heavily.

I would take a 2nd mortgage to get my hands on some Kirchart, Willy Santos, Suski and Barley graphic re-issues.

And 70$ for each one sounds like a real bargain.

The Tony Hawk ones could be worth something in a few years but I was having a major nostalgia boner when I found the Donny Barley deck. Too bad I have zero wall space so these will likely sit in a storage cabinet with the rest of my collection.

They donít do re-issues, but they have done plenty of homages. Jaws has one out now. Willy santos releases some older graphics under his workshop brand

didnt they just released a couple tony hawk re-issues? i find the homages of older graphics slapped with a different persons name to be meh.
that "jaws" video where he does that 25 stair in france, the one that ali boulala tried, where he got his protective gear and his dad cheering for him at the bottom of the stairs really did not sit well with me. it felt so corny. whenever i see his name, that's all i think about. i think fred mortagne was telling ali that "jaws" had the protective gear and ali said the only thing he had when tried it was a hangover.

My wife thinks half cabs are ugly but with my current pair she said that they don't look as bad as she remembers but they're still pretty dumb looking so I bought her a pair in her size. Just regular black classic half cabs, the same as mine.

I also bought a pair of 55mm oj mini super juices because I want to try and skate on frozen dirt spots I've been eyeing up since it's winter.

scumco 8.5/31.5/14.0 from @ballintoohard
venture forged plates from @tzhangdox
riptide pivot cups

still in love with my dane1 setup but im itching to learn some basic ledge tricks and i need more nose to be consistent.

last time on a 14" wheelbase, i found that less distance from my front foot to the nose makes pop brainless, almost felt like cheating outside of the board being half an inch too thin. this sort of ease is exactly what i want to give complete focus to the ledge.

good width + short length + short wb = perfect?

the forged plates and raw 5.6 hangers should push the wheels out to a comfortable 17.5, so slipping out should be a non-issue. all i can do is speculate anxiously until everything arrives and is set up

Bones STF 54mm V3, the TJ Rogers model. Wanted to give the V3 another try in a bigger size, 52mm were on asphalt was bone jarring. Not a fan of graphic wheels TJ had a great 2020, happy to ride his stuff. No Blind boards yet though.
