My fav setup is Tracker sixtracks with 9/16" risers and Shogo softies with Rockin' Rons bearings. I push the rear truck about 3/4" toward the nose as I like the tail a bit longer than stock. Doh Doh red bushings or Yellow bones hardcores work well for my 220 lb. frame. It's a killer street stealth board and works great on fast banks and big, slippery half pipes. Very comfy on sorta rough terrain.

Yeah Sloth (paul) Set me up with this sweet ride. Still one of my favorites.




Set up with Black Sixtracks, Dubcons, Rockets and recently updated with Khiro bushings and risers (angle in front)

hey,
Yeah the Flores deck was/is one of my favorites!
I love the almost snub nose feel it has.
YES, the wheelbase is a bit long-ish, pretty much all
from the tail.(just move the rear truck forward 1/2-3/4"
and it'd be perfect!) then again, that's why it's cool, 'cause
it has a different "feel" than other decks. The thing is
a SPEED carving machine!!
I rode mine fairly solidly for almost a year and a half;
Webb Wide Rides with Team Color DubCons. A very
"surfy" feel to it.
A deck I'd ride pretty much anywhere.
It would be nice to see it make a return with new graphics
and a little bit longer of a tail.
Probably the most underrated of the BDS decks.

Hey Chris,

 

I couldn't agree more......a better graphic....a longer tail....and keep the same concave......

 

 

btw....I moved my rear truck forward 3/4" to go from a 6 1/4" tail to a 7" tail....

 

a more responsive board and short'n the wheel base a bit......a much better ride then before...

 

seya,

To me, this is the 'ultimate' Flores.  I had a chance on this one just under a year ago, and it wound up with someone else.  Fortunately, it finally found its way to me.  Thanks again Gabe! 

 

The deal with this one is that the trucks are 1 of 1 prototype Webb Shogo's.  The only set of Webb Shogo's in yellow!  Check out the risers too! 

 

I've always had a real liking for the Flores', but this thing is over-the-top hot!

Actually, I made an exception for this one.

Tuk!

 

That's beautiful!

 

I'm down in Dallas, TX for the week.  Brought one one of my Flores' to help move equipment   Been skating some (strangely) abandoned parking structures and an unfinished chunk of 635 when I'm not working.  Man, am I glad I brought it.  A better all-around deck is hard to find.

 

Dallas is weird, but a good kind of weird.
