From Stacy- There are so many within the skateboarding world who look at skating as a religion which must be practiced to exacting and specific standards; you must conform and ride this type of terrain, you must conform and do these types of tricks, you must not mix this style with that style, you must look this way or else etc. And then once in a while a skater like Andy comes along who doesnt fit into this fanatical mold, a skater who is such an outsider himself that he doesnt even fit into skateboarding. He doesnt fit in because hes not following its false mandates. What Andy is doing is living the creed of what a skateboarder is supposed to be. Hes not conforming nor is he looking for acceptance from conforming, and with that hes accepting the grief and exclusion that comes with being a true outsider. That is what a real skateboarder is.
Stubbed nose/tail- Predictable pop, great for building consistency. Slight curve ideal for Pogos and Caspers
Wide tail/nose- Comfortable footing and flicking, more tail to wear
Symmetrical- Twin Tip, board wears 2xs slower. Skate either way, board may never feel ‘backwards’
Egged rails- Chip evasion. Board will roll instead of smash when hitting the ground
Widest point- 8.7 at the middle, helps kick and catch lateral rotations
14.5 wheelbase- .25 longer than average for a more stable stance
No straight line- Continual curve, helps avoid chipping from impact on flat surfaces
Distance between truck and kick- .125 shorter for higher pop
Foot placement width- 8.5 wide at trucks
Primo sensitive curve- enhanced for Primo flips
Length/shape- 32.3, shape 301, K20 concave
