I have been wanting to skate something similar to the Henry FUK board and I almost picked up a sweatpants a while back. But something about those wheels wells may make this the one I do pick up.
Nothing I do deserves more than an iphone camera.

Dead Dave and "skinny" Dead Dave... 8)





The recent one feels like a "normal" skateboard (compared)...kind of like the 10.1 more...I've been trying to learn as many footplants as I could, in small transition mostly...for that I guess you can't beat the feeling of the 10.1"!

Been using a "normal" 8.5" popsicle lately for the street stuff I do...mainly learning slappies at the moment. 10.1" and 8.5" seems like a good combo, still kind of undecided about the 9.75" version? Need more miles though, just a couple of park sessions in. Really dig the new graphics though.

I always come back to the sweatpants shape.
Krooked gonz sweatpants 9.81
Indy 169 standard w/ 92a med/hard bushings
Spitfire f4 radial full 56mm 99a
Quantum isotopes
Rad rails standard
Mob
Roughneck 1Ē Allen
Dunks

Both timeless and a modern classic. Standards but not stock - I spy them ikps.

This is a long shot but does anyone have one of these and wants to part ways with it? Itís like my dream deck and I am really hoping that they will do a reissue one day!

It looks like the stock BBS / Generator shape from their site too, so I am guessing it is not just a one off in that regard.

GS6 shape

https://skatesamples.com/products/shaped-decks








The most frustrating thing about that is although you don't need graphics, sometimes the shop will have sales or discounts, which might bring the board down to a more medium price, free shipping, free grip, but from the BBS / Generator online site, you have to buy your own grip and pay for shipping, so depending on where you are or how many of them you get, it can work out nicely or it can work out to be much the same after all that.

Just another option anyway, so at least you know what is there, if nothing else, they should always be in stock, by the look of things.

Can always count on you for board info. Your work is appreciated.
Your posting that pic has saved me when I run out of the shovel noses Iíve been riding for the past couple years, thereís one close enough shape wise I can make it into it and keep it the same dims.

no pic but I picked up a madness pelka blunt. I really like it so far, but the ace 66 with 58mm spitfire conical full makes the rear stick out a little which I do not like. I'll learn to live with it I guess. I'm thinking of snagging the Losi guest model since I do prefer a little more nose on a board. At this point I've just been looking at decks in the 9.5" and up range. My son has taken my loveseat as his own pretty much, and now when I step on it it feels small as can be. Variety being the spice of life, I'd like to be used to switching from a larger board to a smaller one and vice versa with as little getting used-to-it period as possible. What i lack in ability I can make up for with variety of deck excuses maybe.

I just picked this up for a steal. I think it works better at 14.5wb, 15 just didn't feel right with the shape.
The resin7 construction is incredibly solid but heavier and very stiff. I ended up going back to my huffer but I'll try break her in once this is done..

I've seen that site before, it's not a scam? Zero google search results for reviews and it's young site. $26 per deck is unreal.

It's legit, it's a site that sells boards directly from BBS/Generator. I'm sure part of why it's a simple unrecognizable site is they don't want their reputation to take a hit for selling blanks.

Here's a few posts from the Set-Up Thread where they are riding BBS Blanks. If you click on the posters name and link back to the thread there is more info in the comments on the posts. As far as the site is concerned, I think it is so new because BBS just started selling blanks as a reaction to PSStix doing something similar.

Really leaned into the concept of "shop board" with the deck and stickers
Marriage shop deck, 8.6 (not sure of the rest of the dims, assuming it's the standard BBS 8.6)
Ace AF1 Low 60s with hollow axle hangers (also replaced the kingpin & axle nuts with the titanium Acer nuts)
Spitfire lil smokies classics 50mm
Quantum bearings
Acer titanium hardware
Pepper grip

[close]
This Marriage shop deck has been the best board I've ridden in a long time, the shape, dimensions and wood all just felt perfect, so I was delighted to confirm that it is actually the BBS/Generator blank 8.625 shape (8.625x32.375 14.625wb). So I got some of those and kept everything otherwise the same (including stain color)

them cats are out getting mashed up to jungle, he's out mashing up jungle cats. it's just not gonna work.

Cross post from the egg thread.

Won this deck in a raffle Fos put on a month or 2 ago. Gave me an excuse to get some Ace 77s and set up a Christmas complete.

Took this out for a curb session later in the day and the 10Ē egg is wild! I usually run the 9.4 and this is so much bigger. Also had to get adjusted to Aces as Iíve only run Indys for the last 3 decades.

This thing is a boat but itís a blast.

crail couch, venture 6.1, spit f4 55mm, lil jawns rails. Absolute fun all arounder for me. Flips well, boardslides fast even when going slow, and the grind feels pretty good. Haven't had ventures for maybe 29-30 years now.

I had a Chocolate couch shape 9.25 for a couple days. Had to sell it. Wheelbase was crazy small for the size and I wasn't ready for it yet. I prefer my OG Powell flat nose shape from, what is it like 1978 ish???
