Pool/vert/street/old school deck
9.9" x 31.0"
RED Stained Finish
Made in USA
Brand new reissue of this late 80s classic (noses just starting to get long!) still in the factory wrap ready for your wall or to set up and relive your youth.
This was UK vert rider Steve Douglas's first pro model - UK pro's were pretty rare back in the day!
Since this is a later 80s reissue it's one of the better decks to actually ride - the concave is medium/mellow but not super mellow like the earlier 80s deck. The nose is kicked and again not super short ALA early 80s plus the tail on this one is huge!
All pretty much as the original; same shape, size, tail, etc. but now drilled for modern trucks so if you want to fit original 80s ones you'll have to drill a couple of extra holes. This isn't a problem and any extra holes would be hidden under griptape and under the baseplates...until you take a board appart you'd never know.
Set Up suggestions:
Trucks : Indy 169s, Tracker Six Track, Gullwing Pro III or Sushi california for a budget option.
You could get away with 149s but only if using wider wheels.
Wheels - Take your pick from the Powell and Santa Cruz/OJ reissues; Rat Bones, G-Bones, Slime Balls, Big Balls, Teamriders, etc.
Transport Wheels: Kryptonics "Star Trac" reissues in 60mm diameter. 78a reds are the softest and best for transport but the greens and blues also transport really well.
If you need advice on a set-up, please get in touch.
Profile : Double kick (shorter nose)
