9.0 x 32 x 13.75 Quasi Egg
6.1 Venture
58 Spitfire F4 OG classic shape
Reds
Some bolts
Jessup

I have a love hate relationship with the quasi egg. I don't really get to skate enough to run astray from my beloved boxy ps stix 8.5 x 32.125 x 14.25 on venture 5.8s but here I am. This is my second and some days I love it and some I hate it. I just cracked the tail on my last one. Not this past weekend but the one before I had a good time skating it at the skate park on a saturday then went back to the park on a sunday and couldn't ollie on it but it might have just been my legs. I've been working this weird shift that's 1 am to like 11 am mon - fri (it was a multiyear project and on Central European Time and I live in NJ that I'm just wrapping up but I start regular 8 am shift on this Monday) and I'm 32 and I sit in a desk chair for long hours and I have a one year old who rules and deserves all my time, so not really that much skating lately and my legs can tell. My legs feel 1 billion years old. Plus on top of that I was never very good lol. I just got a yoga mat and a below the desk pedal thing and started using a foam roller again this week. Going to start maybe trying to eat healthier and perhaps slow down on my alcohol consumption but that's not as likely. Either way it always feels good to get outside and push around even if I'm feeling extra awkward on my board.

I moved into the house next door (same landlord - needed more room for my wife and baby and home office, etc.) and since moving they've done a lot of work in the parking lot behind my old house and it's made the ground a bit rougher - really eats up a board - still awesome to push around back there. I have a box and a quarterpipe in the furnace room in the basement of this house that I want to go in and get to skate but I sort of don't want to scare the tenants who moved into my old apartment anymore than I already do just yet. Either way set this guy up and went out really quick at golden hour when my wife and daughter went to my sister in laws. Put the phone down for a little and filmed a brief moment of my flat ground where most of the tricks I did were completely out of frame because I'm a dope. Either way this is a ton to write about a board I don't know if I like and I'm 100% rambling. Go Birds! Mind the poor nollie flip and slow speed on the only three things I did almost in frame, it's on a bit of an incline and I'm working on getting my legs back.

Please excuse the atrocious grip job, blade and grip weren't getting along today.

Nose is 7.25", tail is 7" (measured starting from between closest bolt holes, on the top ply)
[close]


Not a worry.

I can easily see the outline of the board and stoked it doesn't have a pointy little tail like some other boards of similar proportions.  That was the main thing.  A wide board with short to medium wheelbase and short pointy tail seems to be quite common and is a deal breaker for me.

Much appreciated!

That board looks sick in a good way!
Iím still quite new to skateboarding and dimensions, so I wouldnít understand how anyone could be looking for something completely different than me and why no-one makes the perfect board for me.

Having skated the Orange eagle for a couple of weeks now, I have narrowed my FOV in regards to boards. Itís a great board, very durable. I like the long wheelbase, but I donít need the kicks that long. I mean címon, the kicks almost make up half the board. 7,25Ē nose and 7Ē tail vs 15Ē wheelbase.

I could see my next board being a shape, as they tend towards longer wheelbases but shorter overall but would do a pop in the right dims in a heartbeat.

Currently I have narrowed it down to boards with 15Ē wheelbase, and tails and noses around the 6,75Ē - and total length around 32Ē. Nose length isnít really that important, as I donít really do a lot of tricks off it yet. I prefer mellower kicks and flat to medium concave.
Picture just for reference. I like the madness and frog boards the most, but I donít know anything about how they skate.



The Frog board is BBS, just like the orange eagle (unless Frog have changed, but I think they only had one PS Stix board out and it was a one off shape anyway) and the other two will feel more like the Creature board, unless the Santa Cruz has the Cruz Missile concave, but again they can have different concave options, so just check the listings for those boards.

I know a few people who don't use the nose and will always drill a more standard board out way longer at the nose end if it allows it, just so they have the longer wheelbase without a 33" long board.  This opens up the options a whole lot more, even just drilling anything out using the Indy six hole baseplate as a template which is 3/8" so anything around 14.5 to 14.75 are good in that regard for extending the wheelbase to a more comfortable length for your happy place.


Indy standard trucks in 159, 169, 215 or 109 all have the six hole baseplates, as do some other brands, so bolting the baseplate on and drilling through the other two holes, turning the baseplate around and drilling through the inside holes when you put it at the longer bolt pattern is a good way to get an accurate wheelbase extension, but if you are careful it is not hard to just measure and drill.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Iíve been wanting a reason to pick up some 6.1ís and this post is helping. Or not helping, or something. Either way, your setup looks fun. Do you like that short wheelbase?

Cool setup!

Thank you! 6.1s I have nothing but good things to say about. I donít know what it is about them but they have a better turn than the 5.8s I usually ride I donít know if itís cause theyíre wider. I love the 5.8s too but it was pretty impressive how quick break in time and the turn on them right out the gate.

The board is sometimes so fun and feels really good for everything but especially 360 flips or back 360s and other stuff and sometimes it feels like their isnít enough board and I canít even ollie on it. I think the bad days are just cause Iím not skating as much as Iíd like and Iím looking to blame anything but myself lol.

You, my good sir, are a treasure trove of information. A true gem of slap.
I did get 169 hollows to go with the eagle, so I think Iímma just gonna go for it with the Creature 8,6. Strap them on, drill, flip and drill again, and put back the forged 159. Itís a 14.625Ē wb, and itíll become just about 15Ē when done. Brilliant! The tail is still short, but itís fine with 54mm wheels. I can deal with the rocker concave better, since I switched up my shoes.
Will let you know how I fare.

The frog better come live with me, for when Iíve worn out the eagle. Terrible graphics, but sweet dims on paper.

The Meek Slasher looks a little skinny around the rear trucks so I might pass.
Wrong thread, but I might end up getting a skinnier board w/ 149s and drill that out to 15Ē, and practice flips n stuff.

 
Im too dumb to figure out how to make this drawing my profile pic.


I also saw Skate Goat at Venice

Nice video too.
The 13.75 wheelbase scares me a little bit but I might just have to try it anyways.

New shape from girl, love seat plus.
Iíll set it up soon and give a review


Any word on when the rest of us will be able to get our hands on this shape? Did you skate it yet?

With the flight deck biting the dust so soon and some warm weather headed our way, I grabbed a Jeff Kendall "End of the World" deck for a park/vert setup:





Mainly the 15" wheelbase is what I was going for, but the matte graphic is really cool too.

Deck is tapered 10" x 29.7"
Indy 169s
1/4 risers
1-1/4 shorties hardware
Bones Swiss
Powell Rat Bones 60mm - Dragon formula for street / Bones 60mm V5 SPF 84b for parks.

The 54mm dragons are so good. They still catch on the occasional pebble, but they roll like a bigger wheel.

The 4th setup on this deck:
Beau Brown 10.25" deck
17" wheel base
Indy 215s
54mm ricta clouds.
The huge wheel base, flat concave and 215s make this veeeery comfy to ride.
It has previously been a surfskate with waterborne, also carver, and set to 15" wheelbase with 169s. All fun.
It maybe works best as a surfskate?
PS. I put extra bolts in the extra holes drilled cause I don't like looking at holes

What's the tail length like on it? Looks like a fun shape but short tails are a no go for me.

Spy shot of one of the samples for the project (struggling to call it a "brand") I'm working on. I'll hopefully have more photos of the boards / a setup photo in the next week or two  ;D

Cross post from the Huffer thread.

Grabbed the newest Huffer. This one is for following my 4-year-old around the neighborhood or through paved trails in the woods near our house. I'm still using riding last drop's Herndon graphic Huffer for bowls and mini ramps.

Please excuse the too-long hardware. It's all I had that fit the 58mm wheels and 1/4" risers.

Edit: Apologies. That rug is filthy. My home office doubles as a playroom/snack room for my two young children.

The 4th setup on this deck:
Beau Brown 10.25" deck
17" wheel base
Indy 215s
54mm ricta clouds.
The huge wheel base, flat concave and 215s make this veeeery comfy to ride.
It has previously been a surfskate with waterborne, also carver, and set to 15" wheelbase with 169s. All fun.
It maybe works best as a surfskate?
PS. I put extra bolts in the extra holes drilled cause I don't like looking at holes


That is such a trip as one of those went on ebay.com.au for cheap recently, from a guy I know.


Interesting what comes up sometimes and skateboarding is such a small world, especially here in AU.

I originally bought the deck second hand too! But it was mint. It's a fun deck.
How did you know I was in Australia??

Guessed really, but the "traditional flag" on the grip was a sure sign - rad grip job too!!

Lots of rad people I know who skate and have a proud indigenous heritage.


That's a rad thing about skateboarding, bringing everyone together and breaking down barriers.

Spy shot of one of the samples for the project (struggling to call it a "brand") I'm working on. I'll hopefully have more photos of the boards / a setup photo in the next week or two  ;D

Haha oh yeah I forgot that was there! Doh. I'm not actually indigenous myself. Just wanna pay some respect. the previous owner had cut a circle there and put a sticker in it. I realised one day it would also work well as the sun in an Aboriginal flag.

You pressing?

It's a one-off shape I designed that is an amalgamation of a few boards I've liked and I'm working with Pennswood to get them made. I'll get some more photos up soon, but here's a spy shot of the stains Joe did for the first sample batch. The Instagram for the project is linked in my signature and I'll be keeping that updated as things progress (if you or anyone else cares enough to keep tabs on them lol).

whats the wheelbase?
while cool-guying is a real phenomenon, studies show that 83% of all cool-guying incidents can be attributed to the cool-guyee being an awkward weirdo

Thanks, I'm really stoked about how they came out aesthetically. Hopefully, they skate just as good as they look and I didn't botch any of the measurements lol

whats the wheelbase?

As of this moment, the samples are 9.25" x 32" with a 14.25" wb (7" nose, 6.625" tail, 9" over the front truck, 8.75" over the rear truck). We're going to give these a go to see if we want to make any changes and then get a slightly larger sample batch to add a few people to the feedback loop. Ideally, the plan is to get everything locked in shape & measurement wise and do a small 1st production run in late spring/early summer.
