That's it !!!
 
He's taken plenty of input on the Message Board, the Squadron and the OOT decks anyway. It's not like he hasn't provided plenty of opportunity for input.

I don't give a fuck about the wheelbase or the concave. As long as it's purdy and has a number eleven on it!!!

Wes didn't have ANYTHING to do with the designing of those decks.
He did the artwork only.


I thought that's what I said ?


What I meant was that's three decks designed from input from members of this forum.

18" wheelbase and the deeper concave. I'd buy an OOT2!

I love my OOT and the deeper concave feels great. Much more control and power when turning it seems and locks my foot in better.

A Q12 shape on the OOT mold would rock my world!

Art was done by Bernie & Dan on OOT. But that's a minor point. My 2 favorite riders still Squadron & OOT. Concave rocks on both.

Wes has been more than generous on all counts.

My favorite riders are, in no particular order, the Plank, Holt and OOT. Any of them with a deeper concave would be really killer!

I was thinking something between the Plank & Steve's with the nose pulled in & little wings,  square tail?

Something between the Plank (11") and Steve's (10.5")? 10.75"?

Square Tail....

I think it would be nice to go a little narrower, maybe 9" and keep the general shape. Just makes a great board just a little bit lighter.

Beating a dead horse perhaps, but I still think the idea of a center beam-type deck with faired/thinned out edges, has a good deal of potential in a wide deck. The advantages are to put the strength where the deck needs it and create more clearance for running the 60 plus wheels we're all so fond of.  After experimenting with the carbon fiber on the outside of a deck I made in my vacuum press, I can kind of see the limitations of the stuff, particularly on the bottom  graphic-side of the deck.  The stuff is ugly and loses its cable-tension properties after a few sessions of boardslides.  That said, there's still potential for C-F or a similar material as part of a rigid and lightweight internal beam.
And I admit, I'm part of that 200 plus pounds contingent that keeps looking for ways to lighten our set-ups as the body weight goes up...
