Kevin Taylor deck from the new Scumco drop and/or the upcoming Krooked guest deck. I spent all my spending money on skate shop day, I imagine both with be long gone before I have some extra scratch again.

Has anyone on here skated a visit board? What's the shape like? Considering buying one when Ryan does a restock. I love how Ryan does it with his wife in his garage and I'm happy to pay extra to support him.

fairly sturdy. flimsy enough to still be able to move your ankle around but if you laced them all the way to the top they'll feel very secure. i lace mine one eyelet from the top and they feel very solid.

Super comfy. Honestly, I think the wafflecup with the popcush is the best sole vans has made to date.

i asked RG on ig if they could post WB and length when they restock, he replied that they're sourcing from 2 different woodshop at the moment so measurements might vary.

Not sure if anyone else knows the other woodshop besides Clutch

I saw that too. I'm not too picky about precise measurements so much as the general shape. I wonder if that's somewhat consistent between woodshops.

Agreed, it's the best sole ever. The upper canvas will go limp before you get through the sole. That's my problem now. Sole feels amazing but the upper is just stretching and getting looser. I've been skating them since August though

I had a 8.0 which ended up being like 31.75 and a 14.25 wheelbase, so pretty standard but the board I had was super flat. Gimme a day or two and I can send you some photos

These just popped up in a shop I like to frequent, as much as I don't need new shoes, I would like to try these on with the new updates...

Sk8 low

Also all the new ones don't seem to be anywhere near as expensive as the first ones released, so they might have had second thoughts on trying to hike them up that much, or someone realised they would sell many more at more reasonable prices.


I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

In the same vein as above, I want to try the new skate eras but that leather collar is kind of a dealbreaker for me. The cloth on the pro was so much better.

http://www.upriseskateboards.com/skateboards/hardgoods/boards/krooked/wildstyle-flowers-board-825-pid-27201

anyone know if this deck is actually 14.25 WB?

I believe the 8.25 is 14.38. 

I have a 8.5 and can confirm the wb is 14.25.   

Enjoy your life.

Ya normally it is, but every webstore has it listed as 14.25 and Krooked does use the Full SE sometimes, which I like a lot

I've never had the Authentics or Slipons but I would say that the Crockett His are true to size. I typically wear a 10 in most shoes and a 10 in the Crocketts fit perfectly. I have two pairs already and would highly recommend.

WKND 8.5 shape with the 14.25 wb. Stoked on Tom K and shorter boards lately so I am considering adding it to the pile. I skate mostly bbs wood, but Ps Stix always has such a nice natural feel to the concave. What's the move here?

thinking of getting a hockey 8.75 and redrilling the wheelbase. in my experience, the lowest distance you can drill back without interfering with the og holes is .375"

that board with a 14.125 wb would be a dream shape

Anyone try Girl Pop Secret decks ?

I got a 30$ off coupon at a local shop and Im curious. Ive got all the shoes, clothing, trucks and wheels I need, but Im always down to try a new board.

 Always loved Girl shapes, they skated super well but I just hated the wood. However, I think the last Girl board I had was about 12 years ago. Just looking something stiff.

Some sort of egg shaped or not wonky shaped deck to put some old 8.5 trucks, 52 conical fulls, and some old Swiss on. Shapes I am considering:

Polar P2
Grimple Stix Egg
Frog Egg

The last 2 are a bit more attractive since the WB is what I normally ride. I hate small noses and generally want something that would be fun if I were to skate it normally.

I normally ride 8-8.25 with 139 or 148, 14.25wb max

no i havent but from the top view it looks like a slightly longer and wider 8.5 shape. pics for comparison, 8.5 left 8.75 right
