Not sure who the new Woodshop is but its good. I haven't ridden a Chocolate deck since a 96 or 97, Paulo board but I recently pulled the trigger on a Chico BigBoy and love it so far. I've been injured so I can't attest to its durability yet but concave, shape and flex are perfect. Almost learned fakie tres on it and I never had those even back in my hey day.... So into it I just got a CK 9.125 to skate next. Both have the laser etchings...

Yo. Anyone of you ever skate the G050 shape with the 14.41 wheelbase?

I got one for cheap and hope the wheelbase is not to much? Otherwise another wallboard i guess.

Peace an love

That kinda sucks...it might just be their preference but with the majority of the companies using a mellow generator mold....a bit of more concave would get me hyped....

I have the Sub Pop Cory Kennedy shape. It feels really good. It is 9.25 and I think it is different from the phawt shape. Anyone else know the difference?

Looked at a g023 a few weeks ago and it was very mellow, like most (all?) of their decks. I think it's just their thing.

Yeah all their decks are mellow. It's weird cause I usually only skate steep decks and hate flat ones, but the crailtaps work for some reason. I really like their shapes.

G023 is super mellow (8.125 * 14 inch wheelbase)
G026 is same width and wheelbase but much more concave

Interesting. Iíve skated both and I usually go for more concave but I much preferred the g023 over the g026. For me the tail on the g026 had that flat feeling like it was already cracked and I couldnít 360 flip on it, it drove me nuts even though it was probably all in my head

Just setting up a G027 board now, it looks great testing it out tomorrow.
I've noticed the nose is shorter and mellower than the tail, the opposite of any board I've ever skated, how do people find this? I'm keen to try it out for myself

Had the G008 from the "improved wood" which had similar feeling, did not like it and gave it away after 2 or 3 sessions.

I typically only ride G023. I got a couple G026 and literally could not stand it. Short tail or something? I don't know it just did not work. Did feel like there was more concave though. Might just be the difference of top deck of the press or the bottom deck. I seriously doubt they are single pressing boards.

Does anyone know the name of this shape? I remember a bunch of Elijah's boards were put on sale with this shape, right before he went to FA.

8.375 x 31.4 (14" wheelbase)

Had a good few sessions on my Chico now. Have to say the Crail wood impressed me at first (snappy and responsive) but its totally mushed out at this point. I haven't been skating much due to an injury and its mostly been flat and curbs. Anyway, great shape, nice mellow concave but really lost its 'pop' pretty quick compared to Generator and South Central boards. Can barely ollie on it now its that much of a wet noodle. Got one more Crail board (CK phawt shape) in my pile and depending on how that goes my flirtation with Crail wood might be done.

that sucks to hear! I haven't ridden crail in I can't even remember how long but Chico really got me stoked on those boards so I'm really looking forward to setting it up. I hope you just got a dud in the pile and that your CK board works better for you

Like I said, it was great while it lasted. Maybe I did get a lemon who knows... I usually ride boards until they break, crack or the razor tail is sketchy. This is the first time in a long time, I've had to put  deck to bed because its simply unusable...

what's the wheelbase on the G033?
Skateboarding isn't a sport because when I'm in these streets I don't play

Just set up the CK. Its warped. I'm not super picky with my boards but this is likely my last Crail board. Glad I got it on sale.

ugh, that sucks! I only bought the Chico board because of Chico but it looks like we won't be seeing anymore of those ... I wonder who will end up picking him and his big boy shape up?

I was about to pull the trigger on a Yonnie deck with the 8.12x31.3 with the 14Ē wheelbase until I saw Real has a Busenitz with basically the same dimensions so Iím going to have my shop order it instead.

That 8.12x31.3 crail shape is the best and I'd pick it 100 times over before going with the deluxe 8.12x31.25 one. Both are good but goddamn I love that crail shape.

Then again, deluxe wood....

I love the crail shapes but the deluxe wood is unbeatable.

Just finished skating a Mike Carroll g016. 8.375. The tail was really small, only 6.3. At first I hated that. I kept whiffing on my pop. I almost took it off right away. But that's not my style. I'll suffer through it. Eventually, I figured out if I slowed down my pop in my back leg, it worked. It worked better with less effort. Kind of strange. I kept having to remind myself of this. Less force.
Shape wise, pointy and flat.
Wood wise, not bad at all. I skated it for 5 or 6 weeks. And it had at least another week of life,  but I slammed and it shot into traffic. Some jackass went out of his way to run it  over.
I'm on a bareback now, killing floor, and I'm having issues getting used to the normal, bigger tail. I had a feeling this would happen. I've got a stevie Perez g030 on deck. Also a 8.375, but bigger tail and wheelbase. And the shape looks more full. I like how all the measurements are listed on the top.
