Title: Favorite Skateboard Decks
Post by: Dr. Steez on October 14, 2009, 05:16:03 PM
My personal favorites are Zeros and Girls, both really strong boards, but Zeros have mad pop. Girls are hard to get used to, but once you skate'em for awhile they're really good

Zero boards have nice shape and pop,but when they break,they break.
I ride Tum Yeto and DLX.

girl boards are made in china and are not strong. fact. the break easily. however, they do have good shapes...though they don't hold them for long.

i like chapman wood (hopps, official, zoo, etc.).

You spelled lick wrong.

And why would you lick a skateboard?

You lick your board when you don't have wax.

I'm riding my first element right now.  Yeah, I know people think they are lame, but this board's really working for me.  Bunch of firsts on it, and it survived a few drops I thought it had no chance at without even a crack.

Post by: indysforlife on October 29, 2009, 08:48:39 AM
im down for creatures and anti-hero's. but skate-wise, flips are pretty good. ive skated a mark appleyard goatman deck and i have a tom penny eyeballin deck right now, and they've worked out good for me


Title: Re: Favorite Skateboard Decks
Post by: HailSkatan666 on November 01, 2009, 07:58:23 PM
My top's are Anti-Hero, Real, Deathwish, Zero, Toy Machine :), Black Label, Foundation and Creature oh and Birdhouse, I only rode the Black 6 boards from them. Thry have nice pop. But that was like Summer 08?

Post by: Dr. Steez on November 13, 2009, 06:53:07 PM
zero is pretty good, like sk8mafia 2

both very good companies, i'm on my 9th Zero and they never get old to me. A brand new zero is the most thing to me, perfect pop, flip, really strong. Sk8mafias are good i've had 2. There really good for complicated flip tricks and ledge tricks.


Title: Re: Favorite Skateboard Decks

Title: Re: Favorite Skateboard Decks
Post by: JiggsUp on November 15, 2009, 07:31:04 PM
In my opinion baker has the best shape, really good pop too. I had one girl, it broke within an hour. a brand new zero is really good too. flip as no concave.

I can understand that. I can skate krooked for days, and Drehobl shape with it's weird sizes fit my feet perfectly. If I get any other DLX board I'm over it in a week, or a day, a weekday.

I haven't skated a brand name deck in like 4 years. I usually go for the $35 shop boards. The only boards I would pay full price for are Lib Techs 'cause they last for fuckin' ever (I know they get soggy, and I don't care) or Naysayer boards to support the general cause of skate entrepreneurs.


Title: Re: Favorite Skateboard Decks
Post by: elastic back on December 08, 2009, 11:54:11 AM
Naysayer boards to support the general cause of skate entrepreneurs.

 :)

on that note, stoked to have a constant supply of boards i love. chapman makes the best boards, glad i went with them for our wood. sure, i could have saved some money going through another manufacturer, but what is the point if you aren't satisfied with the end result?


Title: Re: Favorite Skateboard Decks
Post by: skatenerd on December 08, 2009, 03:44:09 PM

I guess I do one of 3 things. Land bolts, skate weak shit or I just don't skate enough, 'cause most boards last at least a couple months for me.

my shops' blanks are DLX.  it has nothing to do with the shop itself, but perhaps where they get their product.  i've skated the same ones for nearly 10 years and they rule.  got a couple naysayers on the way though, so we'll see if that changes haha!

No I won't be breaking it anytime soon. I got the Graham Vikings of Hesh deck, it's 8.8" wide. I bit large for some but when you have size 13 feet it makes me more comfortable knowing I have a little room to move my feet on the board.
