^chinese maple no doubt.

or perhaps cape breton wood (http://www.visitbaddeck.com/).

I only purchase decks made from the finest materials my country has to offer. I go straight to dildo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo,_Newfoundland_and_Labrador).


east coast canada represent.

Absolutely the best advice on this thread!!!!!!!!!!!!! best pop, best wood, best concave. Shame their sales rep won't reply to my emails about where to order one from in South Africa cos my source here ain't stocking Deluxe anymore. Any suggestions as to a good international source guys? ???

 Jart skateboards, Ive never managed to break one yet but you need a couple of days to get used to them. Roger skateboards,  super comfortable from day one strong enough but not as durable as jart. Since i am poor i prefer jart. Jart boards are slightly cheaper here in europe too. However Roger has kick ass graphics compared to jart that graphics  suck badly.


 Worst board i ever had was an enjoi deck. In my entire skate life i ve never seen a board cracking in 4 places(tail,nose, 2 in the middle) during a week without even trying something big. Baker skateboards are shitboards too.

Everyone hates on baker boards, I've had a few of them and they were all pretty good. I'll never buy a girl again, last one I had broke the first day.

A year?

I'm stoked on 3 weeks.


Title: Re: Best and Worst decks ever?
Post by: Bro on January 14, 2011, 08:50:22 PM
Yea I've been budgeting my cash lately so I'm trying to preserve some of the previous boards I had just in case.

Hopefully the Peter Hewitt will last for two.

My weight could be a factor why it's still in good shape.

santa cruz new wood is good. or basically anything with bone-ite, or vertical lamination.  those are the strongest.

not too sure. but i remember in the late '90's, santa cruz came out with a fiber composite board called nuwood.  it was supposed to be uber strong, but it sure didn't last up in the north.  one day skating in the cold, it snapped and shattered into a half dozen pieces.  i haven't found a link, but did find this,

gimmicks come and go, but 7 ply canadian maple is tops.

Remember the Santa Cruz Everslick models that had the special concaves written on the side?  I had a Tom Knox with cruz missile concave or twin kick concave or something.

My friend rolled off a small jumpramp on one of those (I think it was) nuwood boards, and the square formed by the bolts of his front truck broke right through. Nearly brand new board with a big square hole in it.

Worst decks I've had definitely go to Girl. Sorry Crailtap, but every one of your boards I've bought from you have broke within the hour.

Best decks I've had are blanks, ironically. The runner up is Alien Workshop though but they still do not last me as much as I'd like to. I still buy them every chance I get though.

My understanding is that Creature and Santa Cruz are the same decks from the same factory.  If that's true than I'd say they are pretty good.  I have had good luck with Creature wood and really like the shapes.  Some people complain that they are flexy and I notice it a little but I like it.  It feels more springy than spongy and I hit the scales at around 200 lbs.

My preferred boards are Anti-Hero though.  Shapes are good and they take a serious beating.  Mine are usually pretty dinged up and beat to piss before they finally snap and it's usually pretty obvious/expected why they do when it happens.

girl boards are awful. I've never had one last more then 2 days and I rarely break boards.
however, after taking chucks advice, my nash board has lasted me so many gnarly sessions. except now my lapper has some scratches in it...

Stabby, I was surprised to hear someone bigger than me finds Creature decks strong. I've had 7 or 8  of them, and only 3 of them lasted more than a week. And one of those was an 8.6. I broke the SC in 2 or 3 tricks. Broke a creature in 5 minutes on flat before too. I've heard before that C and SC are the same wood, and that would make sense to me, but I really don't know.
