Sold my last motorcycle yesterday :( so I bought some stuff (mostly from shops/companies I love supporting), and put the rest towards a puppy for the family. Very exited about the swiss bearings as I have always just ran reds.
Damn those Reebok's look nice af

Be still my teenage heart.
I wanted to setup a 8.25 for a while, now I have the perfect excuse.
Can't wait for that one to arrive in here

Got a couple of sets of wheels from Skateamerica, was tempted to try a Flip P2 but it was a David Gonzales pro models. And I already have a huge stack of boards (8 and counting) have 2 more on the way.
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"?

I love that politic board, how steep is it compared to the baker? Mind taking a photo? Thinking about grabbing one at vu.

Also does anyone know the length on the 8.0 politics?

I think politic mostly uses a standard SC mold so most likely deepish concave and steep tail. They do sometimes use the E mold (DOA flat as fuck) and apparently have a deep and steep square shape too, but I've never seen one in person. It's been a minute since I measured one but as I recall the 8" was the same as the 8.12 and 8.25, so 31.75" with a 14.25" wb. Damon from library skate shop is one of the politic dudes and quite skate nerdy, so shoot him an email and I'm sure he can answer your questions. Also buy stuff from him because his shop is great.



Yo that snack board looks bugged out. I will always regret not buying their hypnotized minds graphic. Thanks for the reminder with these dudes, still PS, Iíll look for em in the future.

Iím not really a fan of square boards. I like the old baker shapes, old old girl/choco shapes. Pointy just seems crisp and light, whereas square boards feel bloated. Maybe if I tried a really square board, but it was 7.75 or some shit Iíd like it, but some square 8.78 with floppy loose trucks ridden by some tail skidder....always looks trash

This is my third snack, the other two have been good but just not quite right for me. The first one was an 8.12 thats a normal popsicle shape and pretty mellow. It's good but I was kinda bummed on smaller decks until recently so I haven't skated it a ton. The other is an 8.38 that's also a more traditional popsicle but with steep kicks which I struggle with. I really like it for about 5 minutes then I ghost pop a lot.

This one is way more my style. For whatever reason I'm much more comfortable on steep kicks when they're squared and I feel wide square noses help me get more power on my flick. It's definitely harder to scoop though, so a moderately squared tail is my preference. I'm pretty excited about this one but I sprained my ankle over the weekend so I'm going to have to wait a while to try it.

Sorry, but how the fuck can people skate pointy noses and tails?? Tails with a slight taper aren't bad in my opinion. (Primitive and Polar have nice tail/nose combo in my opinion)

I feel like I get the worst flick on them, there's no room to put my foot when actually grinding/sliding, and they just look awkward to me. That said, FA and WKND are the opposite extreme that seem great but are way too stubby/blunt haha however I'm scared I might like an FA if i try one lol
[close]

For me, pointy has better flick and better scoop. Doesn't mess me up on nose slides, either. I think square/full kicks look horrible, like they're pre razored almost. It's just preference.
[close]
I can see the scoop point! I'm on an AWS that has a stubbier tail than I'm used to and I had to spend time finding the scoop again for 360 flips, but they work great now. However, I noticed on my Polar and Primitive decks with a more tapered tail, 360 flips were more responsive with that scoop than the AWS initially. You're definitely right about preference but my knee jerk reaction to seeing pointy boards just screams "get that away from me, it's not visually pleasing and won't skate well" funny enough a recent Real I had was fairly pointy/popsicle like and I just couldn't skate it well, so I hooked someone else up.

Oh for sure. I bug out over square/full boards...they could be perfect in every other way but something about them just fucks with me. I recently had a Hockey that I ended up giving away after 1 session.

Let me introduce you to my newest eBay impulse buy.




I don't think these photos even do it justice. It's almost comically square. I'll take better ones after I set it up.

LOL I had a twin nose PS Stix AWS that had two shoveled ends like that Snack board. As much as I pretended to like it, and hyped it up on here, it was fucking awful as my main setup. I was glad when it broke after 3 sessions. Squared boards can work if theyíre a cruiser style shape. Itís weird when itís done as a popsicle
[close]

@Buttfart Rapedick that thing is traumatizing.
@Ok i had a 7.875 Habitat a few years ago that was a square PS and that was the exception to the rule. That was a great board and I learned a bunch of tricks on it that I didn't think would happen in my early/mid-30s.
@tom in all the pics online that board looked pointy, but when you posted it I was so glad I didn't bite.

Anyway, got a stack of 8.06 eagles, 50mm bigheads, 50mm f4 classics, and a new pair of busenitz. Feeling blessed.

7.9s are the shit. A square 7.75ish board would be an instant buy.
Interested to see what your opinion is on re bigheads vs f4 classics.

Be still my teenage heart.

Just talked to the owner of my local and he's put one of these aside for me - Firebert I definitely don't need a deck but I'm so happy I saw your post as I too had one of these years ago - hopefully they're restocked with reds when I head over.

Chanced upon a pair of Independent 139 Stage 11 Hollow Forged, the sticker at the bottom indicated it was still "Made in America". The pair of trucks came with a set of Bones Ceramic which I was keen to try out.

It's not as square but the WKND Sablone boards are like a "full shape" 7.75..



I wish more companies used that square PS tooling for smaller sizes. I used to skate those and they were amazing but a little tricky to get in 7.875 or 8 now. I remember when FA first came out, the Dill board had that shape and 31.25" long.. The shape looks amazing and fun but I never skated it as I knew I'd regret it.

For whatever reason when I've looked at 8" wknd decks in the shop even the "square" ones seem pointier to me. I wish they would go back to the old mold/dimensions, especially for the 8.25. I emailed them about it a few months back and they said they haven't actually changed molds and attributed the change to PS resurfacing the mold but I don't think that's totally correct. The nose is totally different on the new ones, it's a little bit shorter and nowhere near as steep. I still like them a lot, but the switch from 31.5 to 31.75 and different nose has taken them out of the "must buy" category for me.

That's why I'm pretty stoked about this Snack - although it's still a bit longer than I would prefer and it's not the same size/shape nose it still reminds me of the old WKNDs when I look down at it. I'm curious if the newer square nosed Snack models are the same shape. All the ones my local shop had have been the round nose but the dimensions they have listed are the same as this one so maybe they're still making these.

Bought a janky second hand setup with Destruco Bam Glow in the Dark Truck, Hook Up wheels that were so old they were orange and cracking and bearing that wouldn't spin, just so I could get my hands on this Rob Welsh board:



Not the best condition but I love the guys skating, first magazine I ever had was a Thrasher with him as the main interview just around the time Ride or Dye came out. The grip was a pain to peel off but I'm happy to get this one added to my collection.

Just dropped hammer on my first set of hollow trucks since g&s made trucks in the 80s.

Set of 5. 6 hollows.
 I am stockpiling black beans pasta and trucks.
 
And I forget to get wheels but That's ok.

No one in Boston but maybe me is going to ride a 56mm GREY radial. Too bad they ain't 101s and 58mm then I'd say set in stone they will be mine there next board order if I can't score a natural 101a 55 Connie's or better yet the silver classics.

I got to be 54 to 58. It's important

I like neck hands styles in real life. He's got like a spooky almost Rock Bottom style.

The Character and Chains are fresh

Those neck graphics should sell the swirls for sure.
 
Maybe I'll get lucky no one will want a big hard wheel.

Got an AH 8.28. I'm not going to lie I'm shook about changing shapes.

I missed all the FL drop.
When I saw the graphics I was like yep. I'm definitely going to miss that.

I just hope future drops will be closer to like the 1st of the month. Maybe like the 5th just in case.

I got a couple rolls of mogwai grip.

One will be for immediate illustration.

I'm thinking about making a serious effort this time that has no land marks.

I got to break superstitious behaviors. I usually don't mark my grip till my board speaks to me.

After I went to Roachdales today it said hey ass flea you feeling down?
See that spot?

Now add a heel flip to that nollie shuv you stupid bitch. Boom I got the nollie shuv heels back. Check off another not since 02 trick.


I got a sick cellar door pin. I'm really lit on that.

That's going to be a rare combo. TOA pin on vest with a 600+ stud count. I should use cellar door samples in my next noise thingy.
 
I love it when People notice important non music shit on my stuff.
That's a great way to find skate buds.

I hope someone is like nice pin. Want to go bang on cellar doors?

Lemme get my mask and a dictaphone. Let's fucking go make some noise.

I hate me but I luv you

I feel like they (WKND) must have changed them unless PS changed all the molds/tooling super recently, I think this Habitat series is from last fall/winter and they were all pretty square, this one is an 8.125:

i skated only habitat and workshop a couple years ago, when they all were made at PS, still i felt like the molds changed a bit over time. usually i had 8,125 with some like 14 maybe 14,25 wheelbase at 31,78 long, when they switched to BBS they were the same but 32 long with sometime a longer wheelbase (like 14,5 on a yeje pro model wich mighta been his dimensions?), right now alien and habitat are perfect to me, back so the old shape and size, wood feeling great, rode a bbs and PS made one back to back, same shape no difference!

i do not know exactly what i wanna say about weekend boards really, but feel like some brands use some different shapes/ molds some seasons due to whatever reason really?

also remember FA and hockey going from one season flat as fuck to steep as all fuck with the next, still being produced by the same woodshop.....
make of that info what you will...

Damn, I wanted that 35th tee in that green but they were sold out in L.  Score!

I already had a couple of these gradient stain decks, but was keeping them as wall boards so I decided to snag one to actually skate this time.

Bought a janky second hand setup with Destruco Bam Glow in the Dark Truck, Hook Up wheels that were so old they were orange and cracking and bearing that wouldn't spin, just so I could get my hands on this Rob Welsh board:



Not the best condition but I love the guys skating, first magazine I ever had was a Thrasher with him as the main interview just around the time Ride or Dye came out. The grip was a pain to peel off but I'm happy to get this one added to my collection.

Damn dude, great find on that deck! Wish I could track one down for the wall.

Finding out it was Pendleton, I immediately was down with it!
Graphics and shapes look so appealing to me! Reminds me of 2000s AWS but still unique in this current board graphic climate. Funny enough, Primitive had a run with Pendleton and they were some of my favorite graphics from them, but that's not saying much about Primitive since they've had plenty of hits and misses.
