Man I wish Grimplestix would make more decks around 8.75-9". Since the new video I've been fiending to get a Grimple deck but I prefer to ride wider decks. I've been wanting one so bad I've even thought about sizing down to 149s just to ride one.

You're in luck, newest drop has a grimple deck in 8.85 the new Jimmy Wilkins shape. Not sure how you feel about 15 wb but this shape seems killer for skating bigger transition. Might give it a try myself as I'm getting back into skating bigger bowls more.

Not the same shape, but close.  The one on Tactics is an old DLX 8.85 x 33 - 15 while the new Jimmy shape is 8.86 x 32.61 - 15

As someone from a city with no park I rarely skate transition. The 14.75 wheelbase on my Huffer is about as big I'd go for a street deck. Thanks for the tip but unfortunately I'm gonna have to wait until something else drops.

Those new Misregistered eagle and Curb crusher boards in 8.75 with 14.25 wb might be a win, for a wider board with shorter wheelbase, unless you are more used to the normal 8.75 boards with about a 14.6 wb.

I know it is not the same as a Grimple deck, but at least there should be a lot of those around right now.

Are the Curb Crusher decks 14.25? A local webstore has it listed as 14.6 and another one at 14.5. I wish I never visited Slap and never learned about wheelbases. I miss the times when all I had to do was pick a graphic I like and match the trucks axle width.

The DLX catalogs do sometimes have mistakes, but this is the most recent one with them in it:

https://www.antiheroskateboards.com/


The specific pic, current series "Curb Crushers" white one is 8.75 wide:

https://www.antiheroskateboards.com/spring22/ah-2022-spring2-catalog-05.jpg


The older series, same shapes "Mis-Registered" eagles:

https://www.antiheroskateboards.com/spring22/ah-2022-spring1-catalog-06.jpg


Setup thread link for one of the Mis-Registered eagles in 8.75 too:

Anybody care to measure up an 8.62 Eagle?  I have an 8.75 here and it tapers from 8 13/16th's up front to 8 5/8th's in the back with a 6 13/16th's tail and a 7 3/8th's nose.  32 5/8th's across and 33" tape down.  I'm looking to compare the two. 

Curious if anybody has a strong preference of one over the other.

I've been riding mostly Blue Eagles and a couple Grey Eagles and then then tried the Orange one.  I like the Blue one but it's feeling short, and I don't love the shape of the Grey one.  I Orange one is just fucking enormous.  I'm 6'4" so something a bit bigger seems to make sense.  I initially tried the White one with Indy 159 cast hollows and didn't like it, but on a whim I recently set it up with Indy 149Ti's and I'm super digging it.  Wondering if the bigger wheelbase is helping and maybe the 8.62 would fit these trucks even better and be even lighter, while simultaneously having an even longer wb.

This is exactly what you are after, from earlier:


https://www.slapmagazine.com/index.php?topic=85076.msg3756802#msg3756802



On paper (and the DLX web sites) these are the dimensions:

https://www.antiheroskateboards.com/


They are the standard DLX 8.75 shape, which is the 14.62 wb, so 8.75 x 32.75 length.

The other standard DLX 8.62 shape has the longer 14.75 wb, so 8.62 x 32.56 in length.


From having a few of each, one thing to note, the 8.75 is definitely NOT that long (just over 32.5) and although wider at the shoulder where it is 8.75, it tapers down to slightly under 8.6 at the tail, but the 8.62 deck is straight right the way through and longer overall by a touch so more like 32.7, so I can understand how some measurements can be seen to be incorrect or different.

The 8.62 definitely feels like a bigger board overall to me, with the longer wheelbase and length in that shape, which is a curious thing, with the 8.75 feeling a bit more stubby and blunt in the kicks, especially looking at the nose, but just feels smaller overall and easier to throw around.

If you want bigger, then the 8.62 is going to do it for you, but if you want a bit more normal then the 8.75 will be easier all round.

I put the same everything on both and they still work fine, eg 159s with 56 classic full wheels, no overhang.



Adding to that: 

You could easily ride the 8.62 over the 8.75 for your preferences with your 149s too.

I saw an email from Tactics with the new There boards.

Some dimensions look like they are different from the usual DLX shapes, but it could just be the shop measuring things, eg the Marbie 8.5 x 32 with 14.375 wb.

https://www.tactics.com/there/marbie-growing-pains-85-skateboard-deck


One other thing I did notice was there is an 8.25 FULL shape, not Full SE, so the original one in there.  That is the board that is 8.25 x 32.2 with 14.5 wb and really good big blunt kicks, of which I had a few back when they came out.

https://www.tactics.com/there/kien-friends-825-full-shape-skateboard-deck



I also see the new Real catalog is up with the Jimmy Wilkins boards, which is good - another new shape there, but I am curious about the length of kicks.

https://www.realskateboards.com/summer-2022

Wilkins shape  8.86 x 32.61 with 15 wb

Thank you!  I think I'll stick with the 8.75.  I've grown fond of a slight taper.  I put some AF1 55's on it and it's the best setup I've ever tried.

Does anyone know which DLX decks are pressed with the same mold? I remember someone saying that the 9.0” eagle and 8.62” eagle were pressed in the same mold but the 8.75” used a different one.

I might be overthinking here but I was just looking back on what are from fairly recent memory some of my favorite decks and the Real 8.38 Full (not SE) and then the shaped Antihero 9.25” BA deck stand out. They’re wildly different but for some reason these two I liked more than anything else I remember skating the past few years.

I was thinking it could be the mold being the same but I really have no idea if it’s even close.

I knew it was in there somewhere.


Fun fact: if I recall correctly, the 8.62 is the smallest board from the bigger mold. Like a cut-down 9.

^ Agree with every word of that. The 8.75" is a fun deck, and despite being "bigger," it's more nimble than the 8.62".

I just don't remember the last time i saw an AH graphic I was rreally stoked on. the Todd Francis style just doesn't really work for me. Still love the eagle but ready for some new series...

I know some people have that Mini Beach Bum shape, but it just seems a tad smaller than anything I could skate in any form.  Guessing it would be fun anyway, which is the whole idea of something like that.

Also see that new BA variation on the 9 x 33 with 15 wb is out as a Grimple Hewitt board 8.85 width.

I realized I like 8.5s with 14.5 wb. Longer actually feels better for how I do tricks. The logical next step is to take this preference to the extreme and order an 8.5 Real with 14.75. It doesn't seem like this shape is a regular in the dlx line up? Now I'm also afraid I'll love it.

They used to be around a bit more regularly and I had a stack of them from 2018-2019, but the volcano graphic is the first one since 2020 I have seen.

There seems to be more older shapes coming back each catalog so I would guess this one should still come out a bit more regularly again.  Consider they release new shapes "cause we listened" and re release shapes "back by popular demand" so there must be some interest in it.

The 14.75 wb sure is a big one, with the 8.62 shape always holding that down for a little more width too, but the 8.5 version seemed to be a bit more manageable all round.  I have friends who rode the 8.5 long and 8.62 more for vert or big bowls, but there is nothing to say anyone can't skate it anywhere.

If you do get one I would be curious to hear what you think of it.


That is why I am mostly on the DLX 8.38 with the 14.5 wb or on other BBS 8.5 boards which are pretty much the perfect 8.5 x roughly 32.5 with 14.5 wb.

That is why I am mostly on the DLX 8.38 with the 14.5 wb or on other BBS 8.5 boards which are pretty much the perfect 8.5 x roughly 32.5 with 14.5 wb.

I think in his nine club he said he wore 13s forever but actually feels better in 14s?? Not sure if I have that right

I'm as tall as him and still afraid of 149 width trucks and 8.5. I also have size 10 feet.

I think he is a 12 or even 13 in shoe size.

That definitely makes sense.  He looked so much larger in real life when he came with the Girl squad to do a demo at a local park way back whenever that was, head and shoulders above most others around in the same group.
I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

I realized I like 8.5s with 14.5 wb. Longer actually feels better for how I do tricks. The logical next step is to take this preference to the extreme and order an 8.5 Real with 14.75. It doesn't seem like this shape is a regular in the dlx line up? Now I'm also afraid I'll love it.

I used to skate this shape almost exclusively. I loved the Evan smith Grimple stix boards that were on this shape always. It’s a super stable shape and I felt like I could Ollie really well on it surprisingly. I’ve ridden it with Indy’s and aces and on ace classics I felt like I could manual forever. Super good manual point in that combo.


BA is a 14 which is wild to me. He somehow is still flipping his board like nothing.
