Santa Cruz Winkowski 8Baller Cruiser Board

The Santa Cruz Winkowski 8Baller... it's the same size as the Winkie you know and love, with added money bumps for your pleasure!

Perpetually one of the most popular names in the Santa Cruz lineup, we love the Winkowski decks at Vandem for their versatility, the concave, the fun graphics and the functionality.

It's a stubby fat skateboard at 30.54" in length and over 10" wide. For sure, not the deck for flip tricks, though Erick doesn't seem to struggle in that regard.

Wheelwells in the front where the deck is widest allows bigger wheels to go under there for whatever you like - we take full advantage of that here with this retro cruiser setup with two setup options as we like to do here at Vandem. Soft wheels, surfy trucks... it's a city machine. You'll be hard pressed to have more fun going from A to B, yet alone in this style.

If you're wanting this board purely for the skatepark, we've got a hard-wheeled skateboard version that will better suit your needs!

Epic fade and classic psychedelic graphic finish the board underneath, while on top you've got the epic Cruz Missile II concave snuggling your feet.

Santa Cruz Winkowski 8Baller Cruiser Board: Pro Complete Spec

60mm soft wheels will roll smoothly over all but the worst asphalt on your way. We've paired them up with a set of wedged risers to avoid wheelbite and help the trucks turn even better. It's light, it's nimble, and getting from A to B was never so much fun.

Some other things to consider...

  • If in doubt - go softer! Turnier boards are easier to balance on, and a lot more fun to skate.
  • If you are "between hardnesses," we would recommend the softer option. So for example, for a 73kg rider, "Soft" rather than "Stock Setup" might be a better choice. Get in touch if you're not sure!
  • if you want a very turny board - say for a dancing longboard - then it's worth going one stop softer than you otherwise would do. Watch out for wheelbite though!
  • Likewise, if you want a board for downhill speed, then go up a step harder than the weight table suggests.
  • You do have a bit of adjustment in the truck's kingpin nut, but we would suggest that if you have more than two threads showing then it's time to go to a harder bushing.
  • If you already have a board (or some trucks!) and you would like to change your bushings to suit your weight, check out our truck/bushing compatability chart!
