THIS PAGE IS JUST FOR REFERENCE, I HAVE STOPPED MAKING THESE DECKS, BUT IT IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF A VERY VERSITILE SET-UP, FOR DOWNHILL, CARVING, PARKS OR JUST COMMUTING.

IT'S HERE, AT LAST, THE 1ST PRODUCTION MUNCHH BOARD.

Classic 36 pro board.

This is the new Munchh Boards 'Classic' 36"x8 5/8", the deck is made from top quality 12mm birch ply, hand shaped, finished clear without stain, it is gripped with jessops black grip with the 'Munchh and flower' logo's hand cut for a real custom finish.The deck is drilled with two sets of rear bolt holes giving the options of a 27" or 31" wheelbase, the deck is flat with an average flex, I have refined the shape more since the prototype, making the tail slightly narrower and the deck more flexy.

 

 The board setup and why?:

 

 Randal II 180 trucks possibly the best carving/longboard truck on the market and Kryptonic classic K 78a/70mm wheels, fitted with Abec 7 bearings, spacers and speed rings, giving an extremely smooth ride with loads of grip, lending loads of confidence to the new rider and lots of speed for the experienced, this setup is possibly the best longboard set up out there.

We have been riding them for some time now and they have proved to be a great all round board.

 

 Carving is really smooth, the Randals out perform pretty much all trucks on the market, the 50 degree pivot angle lets you turn tight, but at 180mm across makes them very stable at the same time. The 70mm 78a Kryptonics give you confidence in their 'stick to the road' ability, very smooth and great traction (at 13 1/2 stone i can be stood up and can still take corners tight and fast, with no fear of sliding). If you're upto it a set of harder wheels make it a great sliding board and the length and pump could work well for even giant slalom?

 

The 31" wheelbase and Randals give the same if not better ride than some 40"/45" decks, the birch ply and refined shape has enough flex to give a good pump through turns and at 36" long it fits in the boot of even the smallest cars, i've slung a shoulder strap on mine before now and ridden my bike to a nice hill!

I'm really happy with this board and this is why I am now looking to get Munchh boards out to the rest of the world. I am able to put these together for a pretty nice price, you only have to search the trucks and wheels on e-bay to realise this is a great deal for any skater new or old and when you find mass produced boards with box standard trucks and wheels, going for 70-150 at the moment its such a better deal.

ITS ALL CHANGING AS WE SIT HERE READING, SO THIS IS REALLY TO SHOW WHAT I HAVE DONE, I'M CHANGING DIRECTION, BUT PLEASE STILL CONTACT ME IF THERE IS SOMETHING I MIGHT BE ABLE TO DO FOR YOU. CHEERS, MUNCHH.

If you have a design for a deck or like a deck i have made and would like it modified, mail me with your suggestions and i'll do my best to help, thanks for looking, Munchh.
