What are good boards for 215s?
I want to be able to run a wide conical wheel or cruiser that might bring it past axle to 10.5Ē
Who makes boards that are like 11Ē over the trucks?

Sea Rat Skateboards. They make 10" popsicles.

Does one order by hitting them up on Insta or how does it work?

Follow his IG. Once a week, he'll post shapes he'll be making that week and how many orders he'll be taking. Once his order goes live, he'll take orders (some order multiple decks) until all slots are filled.

Right now, I think he took a couple of weeks off to decompress, skate, and mess around with new shapes.

He's a legit good dude who just wants to make boards. This is his side gig/hobby, so understandably, he needs his time as well.

I'm on a 10" with 215s and it's a super fun slappy set up.

My board - only difference now is I added rails and switched the wheels to 97a classic

Thanks, following. Setup looks lovely, as does your companion.

Also look into Life Skateboards. They have 11" boards as well.

Does anyone know how wide the Crailtap 9.25" x 32" shape is where the trucks sit? Wondering if 169 Indys will stick out.

EDIT: Found this, so 169s should be perfect.

It is a typo. The Couch is like 9" over the front truck and 8.625"-8.75" over the back truck. 169s will stick out a little in the back.

Thanks! I think I still have some old 159s so I can try both. Prefer 169s though.

Definitely! Going to use worn-down 54mm Tablets which shouldnít stick out too much. Will be interesting to skate a more symmetrical shape again after a year on the Gonzales 9.81".

I had pretty gnarly knee surgery in March, so I've been tinkering with setups, doing Grosso-style sticker jobs and just rolling around as much as I can. Here's what's up;



Polar Dane
Indy 149s on Real wooden 1/8" risers (very glad someone makes these risers. They feel great.)
Bones mediums
Diamond bolts
OJ 55mm Super Juice (amazing wheel)
Bronson G3 (better than Raws so far)

The combo of short wheelbase deck, Indys and the OJs makes this a crazy fun sportscar of a skateboard!

Antihero Cardiel Huffer
Indy 159s
Indy inverted baseplates, Real 1/8" wood risers, Diamond bolts and Bones mediums
54mm F4 conicals
Bronson Raws (meh...)

Longer wheelbase is very stable, to the point that I wonder if Ace classics might nimble it up a bit. Shape is super nice, as is the IV concave.

Heroin big gold egg
Ace AF1 77s
Shake Junt bolts
52mm F4 OGs
Bronson Raws

Big ol' wheelchair of a board. I like the big board/small wheel vibe and the Ace trucks feel great. Way more lively than my old 215s.

Anyway, that's the "rolling around and doing no tricks" report! Cheers!

EDIT; Guys I'm sorry I got my trucks all confused... I've corrected the post. The Huffer is 8.75"-ish over the trucks and my 159s fit perfectly.

Thanks for the report and good luck with your knee! The Heroin setup looks so good, following up on the earlier conversation about it I am now fully set on getting one.

Have some 53mm OG Classics that I wanted to sell but might save for the occasion. Also seems like a good opportunity to try Ace, they look perfect on there.

My wallet hurts but itís good to go in and try out new stuff once every decade or so. ;)

@EvenStevieNicks those Indys on the huffer look kind of like an older stage from the hangar shape, but I could be tripping. Anyone more well-versed on the stages able to chime in?

Anyway, nice stuff overall!

Good eye. I stopped skating at 31 when my career got cookin' and these were the trucks I was on at the time. I'd say maybe I bought them in 2008/9?

Thanks pal! I'm on the mend, I just have to be patient. ACL reconstruction and meniscal repairs/trimming so I'm not gonna do an ollie until next summer in all likelihood. Good job I enjoy just going for jam around the neighborhood!

Makes sense then, so probably stage IX or X...and the 169s from that era were 160mm IIRC.

Stage 10 169s had an 8.9" Axle, I think. Stage 11 9.125".

They came in to AU in the most recent Project Distribution DLX delivery as some went out to a couple of shops I saw, but they are still super limited.

Where did you get yours and for normal board prices or crazy "Grosso collectors" type of price?

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Someone in this thread put me onto Prject, so I hit them up a few months ago and they called me when they came in. Legends. Then  I put the order in with my local skate shop and they sent it to them with their next order. I got it for $260 AU which with exchange rate and the rest seems fine. Iíve justified it as itís basically like buying 2 boards. And itís rad as shit.

Hereís where I am at with my current setup exploration:

Gonzales Sweatpants 9.81
169 Indys with Bones Hard bushings and 1/8" risers
F4 Conical Full 99A 56mm
Bronson G3

Been skating this setup for a while, both street and bowl. Last change was going up to 56mm Conical Fulls, which has been a mixed bag. Super smooth, fast, and controlled especially on rough ground, however the board is quite draining to pop and really hard to flip. Gives me a lot of confidence, but I can feel my pop fading mid session already.

Crailtap G048 9.25
169 Indys with Bones Hard bushings
F4 Tablets 99A 54mm (down to 52mm)
Bones Swiss

First session on this board today, really enjoyed the short wheelbase and overall shape. Getting a good pop out of it and flips feel more achievable (I suck at flips, but not ready to give up on them just yet). Ordered a set of F4 Conical Fulls 50mm to try on this, hoping they will make it feel even lighter and more direct, for the lack of a better word.

I have this hunch that I might go back to the Jart 9" popsicle when they become available again, but I am really enjoying these different shapes and learning their ins and outs. Also properly exploring wheel shapes and sizes for the first time and F4s with a wide riding surface have been a revelation. Conical Fulls over Tablets so far, but also want to try Radial Fulls.

Saw this AWS reissue:


https://www.alienworkshop.com/collections/decks/products/morgan-flag-9-25

Sold out on their site but I've seen it floating around a couple places. Trying to chill on the shaped boards but it looks great and T-Bird is a legend. As a bonus I am posting this pic of him slapping the curb in Doylestown, PA from around 1990 or so (not my pic).

Sweet!

And definitely worth it.

Ben and team at Project are so good too.

That Gonz looks so good, and makes me want to set one up (just got two from the most recent delivery) but also the 169s look perfect on it too.

Not too wide in the back at all.

Been on 169s for at least 10 years but this has been the most perfect match so far. The board turns with ease but feels extremely stable, too. Never been as confident to go fast as with this board, especially in combination with the 99A Spitfire F4s.

The pics scale down for the window here anyway, or so I thought.  Not too big on screen is it?

Just put [ img ] around at least the top and bottom views like this and I think you would be fine (then I will cut this pic out so it is just from your post).

Thanks! Edited my post. For some reason they showed in original size when I previewed so I opted for links.

I often have boards come and go, quite a few over 9" but this one is a bit unique, being a short, flat but pointy tailed verson, vs the usual bigger single kicks or even the AH orange eagles that are a million times easier to skate than this one.

But anyway, here is a not so new but minimally used board that just scrapes in for this thread:

Baker Kader 9 x 31.85 with 14.25 wheelbase
Jessup grip
Indy hollow forged 169s with shortened kingpins
Cut down aftermarket Indy 90 conical bushings
Spitfire F4 "Full" 55mm down to 48mm
Spitfire cheapshots bearings
Shortys silverado 7/8 allen

* All second hand / used or very old parts dug out and set up during another lockdown + lots of rain.

Looks sick! Do you cut down kingpin and bushing by exactly the same amount?
