WKND Gold Plated Football 8.875″

£70

The 90s nostalgia keeps on going. WKND have come through with this Gold Plated Football in the classic early 90s shape – wider in the middle, but still rounded at the ends. Couple this with some tiny wheels, clunky shoes and ridiculously oversized jeans and you’re all set.

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.

Specifications:

Length: 31.75″
Width: 8.875″
Wheelbase: 14″
Nose: 7.375″
Tail: 6.75″

(It always feels a bit wrong, as an Englishman, to be calling these a “football shape”. Really, it’s more of a “handegg”, but there you go. American-dominated industry, and all that.)

Choosing trucks for a shaped deck isn’t as simple as with a “normal” straight-sided popsicle. The widest point of this football-shaped deck is 8.875″, but it narrows to 8.75″ at the front truck – and just 8.5″ at the back.

There’s a couple of ways you could set this up as a result. Most people would probably go for an 8.75″ axle to match the front end, and just accept the fact the rear axle is slightly exposed; something like one of Film’s 6.0″ trucks would be a good pick in that situation.

However, you could also make the argument for using a shorter truck like the Ace 44 to keep the axle ends hidden – especially if you wanted to use a wider or offset wheel.
