Death Dan Cates Accidental Death 9″ Pool Deck


Note: this particular deck from Death Skateboards has been discontinued. You can have a look at our current selection of Death Skateboards decks by clicking here.

Death Skateboards are celebrating 20 years of Dan Cates’ pro status with this homage to a classic graphic – Guy Mariano’s “Accidental Death” pro model from Blind in 1992. And, to sweeten the deal, they’ve put it on their much-loved shovel nose pool shape, so you’ve got two skateboard classics on one deck.

Well, three, if you count Cates.

Check the description below for details on the width of the deck at the truck holes so you can figure out how best to set up this shaped deck.


Length: 32.25″
Width: 9″

Choosing trucks for a shaped deck isn’t as simple as with a “normal” straight-sided popsicle. The widest point of this Dan Cates deck from Death Skateboards is 9″, but it narrows to 8.75″ at the front truck and just 8.25″ at the back.

Our recommended way to set this up would be to choose your trucks to fit the front of the deck by using something like the 8.75″ axle of Film’s 6.0″ trucks and simply deal with the fact the back wheels are slightly exposed. However, you could split the difference with something a bit smaller like the 8.45″ axle of the Ace AF1 55s if all that overhanging axle really bothers you.

We don’t recommend you go as low as an 8.25″ axle to keep the back wheels covered, though – that’ll leave the front of the board feeling very weird!
