New Deal WTF Napkin Founders Howell 8.625" Skateboard Deck
The New Deal WTF Napkin Founders Howell 8.625" Skateboard Deck
Reimagined from the heritage version of Andy Howell’s deck that was 9 5/8” wide, 14” wheelbase, 6 1/4” nose, and a 6 7/8” tail. Andy wanted a popsicle shape with a bit of his original shape for his personal rider. I had to narrow and stretch it and preserve the look on the nose and rounded out the tail.
The modern Howell board is 8 1/2” wide, 14 1/2” wheelbase, 7 1/8” nose, and a 6 3/4” tail. This board is on a concave with mellow hips and an ample 2 fingers of flat for a gentle tipping point.
This board will satisfy someone who rides a popsicle or a shaped board, and might just have you surprised doing a manual down the block.
