The kicktail is quite functional. With a little practice you get very maneuverable with it. Keep your back foot forward when you accelerate or you can lift the front wheels.

This thread is great as I am researching for my first build. I am 280-300 lbs and have been struggling with finding a deck that will work for me. Going with dual 6374s, 12s2p, 14/40 teeth, and 90ish wheels. Any thoughts on deck choices would be great. Please message me as I do not want to side track this topic.

Also hello to all I look forward to being apart of the forum.

Always been a personal fan of Bustin decks for my builds but currently gettin ready to try an Evo Falcon.

Thanks for the info I will check them out.

In the picture of that board, what battery enclosure are you using?

The slim one from

Haven’t finished my first build already contemplating another…

For the smaller decks, anyone got anything to say about Santa Cruz? Something like this

I love decks like that. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. But it will be hard to find enclosures.



Haha, mate your post is that one that got me thinking about a smaller board! (That and the jetspuds I found afterwards)

Enclosures don’t worry me too much, I’ve had what I’d like to think is a really good outcome with my first fibreglass attempt on my current build. Quite enjoyed the whole process so looking forward to making another enclosure!

That said the current one hasn’t been road tested. :rofl:


Check out the Powell-Peralta Lance Mountain Bones Brigade Future Primitive deck

I know this is old post but what enclosure is that?
