That other thread? Damn, somebody fucked up (none of y'all), so let's start over.

 

edit: full disclosure, Union reached out to me to ask that thread go away, as a thanks to C3 for being good stewards of the community after Potter's I felt like it wasn't too much to ask.

This is the one we are using going forward right?

 

I was thinking about what kind of shape i would wanna see and came up with this:

Untitled

Is there a shape like that out there with camber, not too tight sidecut and some taper? Off the top of my head I would say Nitro Woodcarver but that has a tight sidecut.

Shape looks Dupraz-ish to me. The D1 actually sounds something like what you're looking for. A few guys here have em.

@picasso: Shape wise, that looks close-ish to a Dupraz B.Hot. It's basically a D1 with a bunch of nose lopped off. @supra can speak more to the board.

You'd have to compromise on camber... the website call it "low camber" but my D1+ 6' looks basically flat. Maybe a millimeter.

(FWIW I love my D1).

I can think of a few shapes like that without the blunted nose:

  • Nitro Fusion might be what you're looking for if the sizes work.
  • United Shapes Cadet, although little tight on sidecut (7.8m on the 162)
  • Season Nexus maybe, also little tight (7.8m on the 159)

Loll, yeah @supra grabbed it from me in a whirlwind exchange after just landing in Tokyo, from Hokkaido 😅.

Very minimal camber, pretty much flat as @Kimchi mentioned. Had it had more camber, like ~5mm or more, would've prob kept it lol.

This is one of those things that when you hear someone say it out loud, it hits you how much truth it has. 

But I really could go down the line with board company names and feel the same about most.

Talk about kismet. We both randomly reached out to each other, connected just in time while @gd was at the airport and thanks to modern technology he got paid and managed to send out the board without packaging right then (in Japan, so the board arrived still minty). Thanks to that board I got connected with Dupraz and now I'm working for them.

What kind of work are you doing for Dupraz? Had a 5'5", great and fun pocket rocket but sold it to someone who enjoyed it even more. Just perfecting the shape and not fixing something that not broken is what I like about Dupraz boards. Would love to try a 6" someday.

team management/sales/translation etc

Choosing a different stiffness of the 5'5 for example changes the ride a lot, which makes the three versions of the 5'5 feel like different boards. I've been mostly on the 5'5 standard and +, with about 10 days on the 6'+ and only 1 day on the 5'2. The 5'5's are the most 'normal' feeling to me, with the 5'2 and 6'+ being the most OMG rides.

Is 87kg to 142kg your weight?

Im 102kg now but was 142kg and dropped down to 87kg during a long period of time. Owned a older 5'5". Before they started doing + and ++ versions I believe?
