Another fan of the orange eagle



Making a 8.75 Blue meanie and a 8.75 BBS blank (white eagle) look small.

I'm 6'5" 210lbs with size 14 feet, anything smaller than 8.75 feels like a kids board.

Itís funny, I try all these setups, switch my decks/wheels etc out all the time. Nothing seemed to feel good. Set this up and it was like ďok this is for meĒ.
My ankle has been jacked for weeks, this cheered me up.

Antihero ba shape 9.25
Indy 169 with blue 92 med/hard
Spitfire f4 lockin full 55 99a
Quantum isotopes
Rad railz
Jessup
Roughneck Allen 7/8
Dunks with fp king foam orthotics


Have you skated one before? I had one and itís probably my favorite deck ever. After that Iíve been skating decks I mainly donít like. Maybe I should just stop pretending Iíll eventually get along with stuff I donít get along with and just get another BA deck instead.

I have skated this a few times, I would bounce back and forth between this and the polar 1991 shape but that tail is shorter than the ba. I opened to order a few for myself and am gonna stick with it.
I too have felt like nothing else feels as good as this board.
Not a big fan of the graphic but itís fine.

Seconding this. I've been eager to try the shape, but I wasn't feeling the graphics. Definitely buying one of these once they hit EU stores.

Edit: quick question, which size Ace would you guys run on the sweatpants shape? Currently skating AF1 77s on the Heroin Mutant, but I'm wondering if I'll be hot rodding on the slightly skinnier 9.81.

Forgot about the Polar 1991. I have one in the stack. It looks quite similar. Maybe Iíll set that up next and see how I like it. I donít have a good history with Polar boards. Theyíve all felt somehow off for me so weíll see how the 1991 goes. Would be nice to stick with the BA shape though.

Not as big as you but heavier. I fall in and out of love with mine. Sometimes itís a fucking longboard, but others itís perfect.
If I were taller or had slightly bigger feet I could probably make use of the giant kicks. I like the wheelbase.

The Wilkins and Russell Creature decks are super nice, but their tails are too short. Theyíre just large-ish decks that have been drilled back. Im looking for something with 14.75Ē-15Ē wheelbase, at around 32,5 inches, with a proper tail. Not too concerned with the nose size/shape yet. Iím not strictly into 9Ē+ boards, as I think length/wb are more important I making a board feel big, so Iíll start liking them from 8,6 and up.
The Anti Hero Huffer is in my sights, but donít know what else to check out. Also the Evisen 8.75Ē, im dwindle curious and not ashamed.
Im too dumb to figure out how to make this drawing my profile pic.

You know what to do. Its a 9 1/8" that rides like a 8.75". You owe to yourself to check one out.

Just found one on a European store. Gonna pair it with a set of classic Ace 55's I still had laying around and see if the shape beats the Heroin Mutant as my favorite shaped deck.

Yeah man, and I promise Iíll check back in with you guys, how Iím doing when I get it.

Do you guys have to wear every board to dust, to justify getting the next?

What do you do with a board that you know have many more miles in them, but youíd much rather ride something else?

(Edit; is this question good enough for a thread subject?)

I have the two different options where boards like that are concerned:


1.  I will still ride it again at some point, but not right now, so keep it.

2.  I will never ride it again, so it goes in the car, or to the indoor park and then goes to someone who wants that size / shape of board, when the time arises.


When people leave boards at parks or elsewhere, more often than not the first person there takes the lot, which often is not the person who would benefit the most, so sometimes I have had people bring in stuff they got to swap for something they want in a different size, shape or whatever.

Not a worry as I know some people who skate early mornings are not going to hang around to see who needs a board, as per a couple of guys I know, one even can't deal with the thought of parting with things, so when he leaves them, it is a lot easier than finding someone who would be happy with it, and less of a struggle putting things on ebay / gumtree or other selling platform and dealing with people who offer low bids or waste your time.


I guess it also depends on the area you are in as well.  Some of the skateparks seem to have more of the people who can buy whatever they like and often turn their nose up at used boards, silly as that sounds to me, cause when I was younger, I was stoked on anything, but that's the way kids are there.  Other places, I feel like I almost need to give them a whole skateboard, as everything they are riding or sharing is pretty much end of the line.



I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Thought this would be relevant here as well:




I'm not sure what thread this info goes best in, but for you Egg and general shape riders, Tactics now includes the width over the front and back truck on shape deck listings



Could post in all of them, including the Woodshop thread, the Egg thread, the 9+ big boards thread because they are the ones relevant to shaped boards, which are not always but usually bigger by width too.

Thanks for the info!!


:)


Example:

came across with girl board at shop recently(shaped ones, loveseat or phawt i think) size 9 but with wheelbase under 14", does it do good to carve in bowls? since i torn my knee and can't really ollie much might as well do other things. also thinking to pair it with ace classics, how tight the turns it will be?

couch or loveseat has sub 14Ē w/b, phawt has a lot longer one. I only skate street with my loveseat, but I though the general consensus is: short wheelbase for techy/ nimble type skating and long wheelbase for cruisy bowl type skating no?

I think itís up to individual preference, but general thinking is that longer wheelbases are better for transition because they are more stable. Shorter wheelbases are better for flip tricks/flat ground but they are less stable and flip easier.

But, again, all personal preference.

Could be a lot of tight turns with some of those lines. I think the longer WB for transition theory applies mostly to bigger transition and vert halfpipes. For a park like that, I'd just stick to what you are comfortable with.

Love this - how are you liking it? Would 9" trucks would work well with the 9.5" heroin eggs too? I haven't seen in hand to measure the width over the wheels.

and any additional thoughts on using aces with the 14.25" wb?

I'm liking this.

This is predominantly my curb board, so Aces with the short wheelbase allows me get quicker and sharper turns when bashing into the curb.

I think 9" Aces would work as the measurements (according to Fos' 9Club) is 9" over the trucks. I used 66s as they were what I had in hand.

Thank you! Still need to listen through that episode.
