Yes ask Don. He is making wood/foam constructions and for "bigger" people he laminates 1 or 2 more maple venneers on top so you have a very stiff and still light deck.

The WB is for Tight so no problem. Take my GOG Deck. It has the WB that you asked for and is 31,5" long

Next week Pavel goes online, there you get more infos. www.pavel-skates.com

Roe Unlimited, stiff, only for the 225+ crowd
First one ever produced, rode it for years, always kept bagged 98% new (maybe a wheel rub spot) $150

I ride for Fatboy now and if I rode a Roe he would kick me, maybe even kick me off the team, and I love pie. I hate to see it on a rack and it's for real size guys only.

foamies for big guys.

check out www.geckodecks.com

they are based in the UK and will produce decks for your weight.

i weigh in at 230 lbs and the one they made for me has the perfect amount of flex without being like a soggy noodle.

if you contact them ask for the CCR model, its not shown on the website yet as its a bit of a special

Roe bottle rocket that needs a 275-315lb guy to make it sing

Post by John Gilmour » Sun Oct 01, 2006 5:20 am

I have a perfect TS deck for you. It is too stiff for me. if you look at MB 2003 there is a shot of me riding it in the TS- you'll see my feet are way to far back because I had to put my front foot in the middle of the board to decamber it.

Sad things for most big guys. Typically, They can either ride a saggy flex board, a dead and less sagging flex board, or a wood board.

This board would be one of the very rare ones that will have tons of pop even for a guy over 300 LBs. Farid and Mig are both big guys and I have seen them flex it and it is perfect for guys their size.

but if you are only 215- forget it, it will be too stiff for anyone under 260lbs. you should be 280 min if you don't hammer your boards for this one.

It would make you a flex board convert- if you aren't already.

Hello Stooke

I think also a Airflow C81 would be fit for you perfectly.
I am sure Claude R. will have one left.
Give him a short mail and ask for the price.
I am sure you will love it.
