Ricky Glaser's Shape: 8” wide 14” Wheelbase 7” nose 6 7/8” tail = 32 1/8” in surface length.
"I ride an 8" board with a US12 size shoe. I like this combo to have maximum authority and control over the board for technical tricks and this custom shape is perfect for that." - Ricky Glaser
"These board have symmetrical nose and tail surfaces with a good medium depth concave. They are in the same size range and in general longer noses and tails will hit sooner when you ollie or nollie and shorter ones will hit latter with more windup.
Shorter wheelbases will turn tighter then longer wheelbases, since the mold surface is the same the shorter wheelbase will allow the nose to pick up easier and with more finesse. Longer wheelbase will be harder to pick up and will react more aggressively.
¼” in wheelbase difference is close to a 2% in change.
They showed me what they were riding, what they had liked in the past and we talked about what they liked and how they wanted their individual boards to perform and then we made modifications according to their feedback loop.
These number may look insignificant to you but if you try them with this knowledge you can find out what is right for you." - Professor Paul Schmitt, PS Stix
