Is it just the angle and my eyes, or does the $lave have a pointier nose?

I remember on the phone you were saying one of the 9x33.25 popsicles had a pointier nose, don't remember if you said anti-hero or $lave.

Trying to find a nice 9.0. - 9.25 shaped board with a short wheelbase.
I could probably just buy another girl/ chocolate/ crail or break out my Chico krooked...
Anyone tried madness decks?
[close]

Im currently skating a madness 8.62 so not above 9 yet but im thinking bout it. Rocking ace 55 with this setup and loving it though. The particular on I have is slick in the middle but not the nose and tail. They def dwindle as some models have the impact inserts and im pretty certain mine said resin-7 on the top.

current one im skating. def looking at getting another and possibly 9+

Not particularly a big boy question..
This little regrowth logo in the last slide on top of this deck, what does it mean? Madness/Dwindle decks are made in China right? My AWS also has that regrowth logo and I am loving that deck.

this board is such a trip. i have a socal blank quite like it, i ended up making it into a cruiser/traditional skateboard. i thought about setting it up as a bowl board with some harder wheels though. let us know how it goes.

I'm going to set it up tomorrow. Either  with my Venture 6.1 or Indy 159, not sure which I should try first. Checked both trucks and each of them extend the wheelbase by the same amount.

No...the slidewinder is supposed to be a downhill slide shape. Made for speed.

Moved over to the Dane1 shape from the winkowski.

Was really loving the winky, but was a bit too flat for me. The dane1 is just so much fun - steeper kicks and concave and short wheelbase.

360 flips are easy.

I figure this place would be the right place to ask. Has any of you tried ace33's on a 8.75-9'' deck? I'm contemplating on some polar deck with wheels and like 51mm wheels to get a real good magic carpet ride feel.

Santa Cruz Dressen 9í
Indy 159 Ti
F4 Conical full 55mm
Reds
Mob
Pig rails

My first Santa Cruz since the early 90ís and I like it so far. Wood feels a little different than what Iím used to but so far so good. Iíve been on a rails kick lately too which are a lot more enjoyable than I expected. The local only had this color, but somehow the Cheetah print works with the Rose graphic to give the board a biker step mom kind of feel.

Anyway, they slide fast. Pigs seem to slide a lot better than the Bones rails I tried. Harder plastic I think.

I don't like trucks wider than 8'' it messes up my grinds. Also I think it could look cool and more room to land is good too.

I was going to say earlier that it feels more like a "T" as in big wide top down to very narrow bottom, so the board tends to tip over more easily.  Quite a few kids often sized up decks without getting anything else, so they were all riding the narrow trucks from their stock Christmas completes, only now on wider decks, almost like it was a competition to have the widest board.  It is not uncommon for 8.5 on those 8.0 trucks, which is about as wide as I would recommend, but bigger boards are less maneuverable too.

Even some pros (Ishod) ride more narrow trucks to avoid having the wider truck feel and slip out from rails and the like, but I don't think any ride it to that extreme, eg 8.0 inch trucks on 8.3 deck.

Try it and see.  Good luck!!!

I talk too much.  Sorry.

Keep in mind that if you have 8" trucks on an 8.75"/9" deck with wheel wells, the bite marks might not even be where the wells are.

For those who love the Cardiel football shape:

Measurements list different but I currently have one of each and they are identical in every way.

It would probably be fine. They taper to ~8.75" over the front truck so it depends on how you feel about that. I've skated the shape with 149s, 159s, and Ace 55s.

Doesn't seem blasphemous to me. I used to have a thing about no big, conical wheels on an egg but after trying it I changed my tune real quick.

I run 55s on all my eggs, with 54mm conical fulls.

No blasphemy, just fun.

Eggs are the fucking best.
