Anybody here tried out ace 77 af1ís? I rode the ace 66 classics numerous times. How does the extra length feel and weigh? Is there any reason to upgrade up to 77s?

Got this Salba Baby Stomper on sale from Socal and set it up for my dad since he's been having some setbacks learning on the flat and noseless Eric Dressen Dogtown deck. Stepping up to close to 32 from 30 is also a big difference in length.

It was my first time setting up a deck with the old school truck pattern, set wide for the maximum 15"wb. He's much more confident on this deck since it has a better concave and an actual nose. I really like the color combo on the wheels and deck. I think the correct truck fitment on this would be 169s, but I didn't want my dad to get tripped up on the wheels since that was happening on the old deck. They're fairly tucked with the 159s with just a little poke at the tapered tail.

Hey folks! Just picked up some Vision Reissues (if youíre Canadian seriously check their website, BOGO 50% AND $20 off 1st order) and was wondering if Thunder 161s would work out with some slimeballs cruiser wheels on em (Gonz and Psychostick)

I finally got around to getting a new set-up, something a bit more tubby yet carvy

Skull Skates football
32.5 x 10, 14.5 WB
ACE AF1 77s + 1/16 shock pads
Spitfire 56mm 97a
Bones Swiss 6

A word about the grip job.

The kanji on the grip say ‘gaman’ which means ‘to put up with’, or ‘to endure’.
It’s basically beat into every person here that you have to just ‘endure’ problems and shitty situations instead of actively find solutions.

Cross post from the set up thread. I skated 4 Polar 9.0's in a row and wanted to switch it up. I really missed the mutant shape and they finally put out good graphic. Although I love the dude's skating and style, I'm not a big fan of DD's doodle art.

i feel you. i got the TV one cause i like the shape but wasnt a big fan of the graphic. didn't help i got the worst top and bottom stains so the whole deck bummed me out. but i used it for the wet winter sessions so it was kinda good i didnt care much.

the French after that i love the graphic. then they had the Dead Toons (i liked that more than his TV one still) and then they had the worst one, the Snot wheels grahpic. and it was glow in the dark too... that one i hate so much.
this one is good. tho my least favorite of the Face Melters series. Craig's deck got the best graphic there i think.
just bummed these are dips. hope they got stains underneath. i've seen em do that once, but not common.

FWIW, I have an 8.75 Tom Day face melter graphic and the bottom ply under the dip is light pink/purple.

Waiiiit, it's got a colored ply underneath? This changes everything.

Mine does! I can upload a photo later. The dip is hot pink with a white undercoat. Beneath that is the pink/purple bottom veneer.

Yeah, same. The Zane 9.0 shape from that drop had a blank ply underneath and that's what put me off on buying the Dave deck from that drop.

Yeah man besides the French one the last few were pretty bad. Imo I like the DD face melter the best but that might be a little cope from just buying this jk. I don't mind the dip but mine doesn't have any colored plys. Honestly graphic is the last thing I care about and this shape is so good I'll ride just about anything they put on it.

* Double checked it and it has a green bottom ply

you're fucked in the head

It's not that serious -

Cross post from the set up thread. I skated 4 Polar 9.0's in a row and wanted to switch it up. I really missed the mutant shape and they finally put out good graphic. Although I love the dude's skating and style, I'm not a big fan of DD's doodle art.

Back on the mutant shape

Heroin DD mutant Shape 10.1
Indy 169 ti (baseplates are from another set of forged hollows)
56mm Bones X Formula
Bones swiss 6
Mob
Shorty's 1 1/4" Allen
Indy 1/4 risers
Nike GT blazers

i feel you. i got the TV one cause i like the shape but wasnt a big fan of the graphic. didn't help i got the worst top and bottom stains so the whole deck bummed me out. but i used it for the wet winter sessions so it was kinda good i didnt care much.

the French after that i love the graphic. then they had the Dead Toons (i liked that more than his TV one still) and then they had the worst one, the Snot wheels grahpic. and it was glow in the dark too... that one i hate so much.
this one is good. tho my least favorite of the Face Melters series. Craig's deck got the best graphic there i think.
just bummed these are dips. hope they got stains underneath. i've seen em do that once, but not common.

Yeah man besides the French one the last few were pretty bad. Imo I like the DD face melter the best but that might be a little cope from just buying this jk. I don't mind the dip but mine doesn't have any colored plys. Honestly graphic is the last thing I care about and this shape is so good I'll ride just about anything they put on it.

* Double checked it and it has a green bottom ply

Could you take a pic please? If this is the case then I might just buy one of the Dave decks from this drop.

I need to do more slides but you can see the green ply underneath

Appreciate it man! Might fuck around and buy one of 'em, even though I thought that I was over skating 10" decks. The art on the Mutants keeps pulling me back in.

Egg shapes are fun, but turns out it's not the shape for me personally.





Grimple Stix Jeff Grosso "Nooner Shape" 9" x 31.8" with 14.25" wheelbase (scaled down version of Grosso's original 9.25" AH shape with rounded top rails)
Independent Pedro Delfino 159 Hollows with 92a Indy bushings
Powell Peralta Dragons 56mm 83a
Bones Super Red Ceramics
Indy 1" hardware
Santa Cruz Slimeline Rails
MOB

Skates really great so far on curbs/flat. If it rocks on transition, this maybe the shape I stick to for the foreseeable future as long as Antihero keeps making it.

Skated two 9.0 popsicle on Indy's and damn did I miss these Ace's. They're looser but still feel a lot more stabile. Also I got my pop just as high as I did on the popsicle. Got another Mutant on ice, and I think that I'm gonna skate that one after finishing this one.

I am with you on that, re egg shaped boards in general.

My Huffer is still good as a cruiser though.


As for that new shape, yes I can definitely see that being more fun for a lot of people who thought the normal Grosso was too big / long for them.

I wonder if Oliver is riding that shape, Goo special, so to speak.


I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Spotted these Beamer Coupes popping up in shops (14.75 in. wheelbase and a snub nose w/ no kick). Anyone snag or planning to snag one? Always wanted an Evil Beamer, but price, size, whatever always got cold feet. This seems much more fun and actually has me excited, probably because Iím one of those weird people whoíve been riding the Beach Bum/Zogger-type shape as more of a crusty street board than a pure cruiser or bowl/mini board.

That said, I donít think Iíve ever actually owned a board with the flat, old-school snub nose like this. Do you still run 215s and just have it hot rod up front, or do you size down to 169s and pair with an offset wheel to bring it back out a bit?

I also have some AF1 77s around here somewhere, and I would probably be willing to grab some Stage 4 166s if necessary. Iíd rather do that than Stage XI 169s, to be honest.

i have skated flat snub nose decks before. and found them not great for street skating, theyre more ideal for transition if anything for me. but compared stuff like a beach bum or zogger, altho they have more snubby noses, the concave still makes it so much easier to use in the streets.



that beeing said. those flat nose boards i had obviously did not have the beamer concave. which i have no idea how it effects your skating. and this new Beamer Coupe does look fun as hell.
from how it looks in photos, i'd say where the axle of the front truck would be, shoulnt be much difrent from where the back truck would sit on a Zip Zogger.
i feel like you could run 215s on this without hot rodding too much. especially if you use normal wheels.

i want a heroin mutant
but i dont want to size up from 8.75 axles
is it a waste of time/$ to buy one and not size up trucks?
