This is a great skateboard for those that are unsure about the size of a Pigme, but still want the same performance. This retro mini skateboard is great to skate to the store, surf check, or to lay down some Bertlemann slides. The Dead is a scaled up version of the Pigme mini and is a favorite amongst the GFH crew. At 27" it can still be thrown behind the seat of your car and is perfect for skating through the airport and evading night patrolman at your local skating spot. We tried out several different truck combinations, but we ended up going back to our GFH Old School 3" trucks. You get a different feel with these mini skateboard trucks that you cannot capture with a larger truck. You will notice that the other guys are using 5" trucks on similar sized skateboards and the ride isn't the same. Why do they do it? Who knows?! Try both and feel the difference for yourself.
