Will have a rummage. Not sure flat is going to be doable, I mean everything (that isn’t a repro) has a kicknose and concave these days : )
How long for? I don't have exactly what you're after, but I could lend out my Lush Longboard Dagyr; pool shape (so kick nose) kinda wide with Blood oranges and cruises pretty well.
Update: Everything in the attic is either...
However! One complete beater board that is ~34” long and 9-10” wide. Deep concave. Indy 169s with soft bushings. 78a NoSkoolz for pavements/tarmac.
Mine is like the Lush board ^ except longer wheelbase and more of a ‘pig’ shape.

I'm interested in that beater board if @thrasher isn't thanks
okay, it’s in a board bag, in a broom cupboard, somewhere in north London, so I’ll unearth it and get a pic.
However, I did also find parts to make virtually the same board (Skaterbuilt deck, 88a NoSkoolz, but 1st gen Grind Kings).
A street/ditch board is very doable.
I'm also I interested in a regular complete setup and if anyone is selling a kids complete

Ronnie Sandoval has 78a urethane in his joints: https://youtu.be/LNR7NyD04U8
^ schralp plus the odd invert? - YESSSS (I've got the yoga mat out, this is gonna hurt).
Got myself first new setup in a long long time.
I'm after a secondhand board for my kid. Either a regular board in a narrow width or some sort of mini cruiser/ wooden penny board / old school something. If anyone is selling something, thanks.
Good read that. I remember Alex Moul turning up at the pioneer club in St Albans one Friday night in around 97/98 and tearing the place up. A lot of us just stopped skating to watch him.
@yetidamo and I came across Alex Moul when we were skating Abingdon Tesco’s car park. He was an absolute ripper as were a fair few others from peachcroft. This must have been 1988.
Sweet! Some people just have it when it comes to skating. I actually didn’t realise he was as big a name in skating as early as he was. He was just one of the big Uk names from when I started skating. If I remember the evening correctly I think John Rattray may have been there too and he also ripped the place up. Both going ten times faster and harder than anyone else.
We skated once with Tom Penny as well.
Everyone was like “wow” that’s Tom Penny...not because he was a famous skater, it was he was the 11 year old son of our Art Teacher.
John Rattray is a top guy

I moved to near Abingdon a few years ago. The old tarmac BMX track that Alex Moul appeared on in a skate video in the early 90s is still there and is just about skateable if your wheels aren't too small.
I grew up just down the road in Wantage, know the Abingdon track well. Assumed it’d be long gone by now. Rad.
I just saw this, mind does not comprehend

We used to mainly session the “king king jump”. Sean Goff would periodically rock up and we’d do street plants and hand airs
I'm not sure how many of the current jumps are original, it seems to have been altered since the 90s and the Alex Moul speed bump from the Rollersnakes video is no longer there.
There's a transitioned jump which is about 18" high which is good for beginners (or crap skaters like me) to get a feel for quarterpipes.
