From my experience P2 decks are Great, but not amazing.  If you don't want to pay the extra dollar for a p2 then don't.

Does Santa Cruz still make Powerply? I had a few Powerply's in the 90's and you could tell the difference in the strength, and the pop lasted longer than traditional 7 ply press. I heard a few people say that the powerplys were heavier and took longer to break in. Great boards anyway. They weren't made of chinese wood either, that DOES make a difference all around in board performance/quality.

Yep, I've been riding 'em.

I've always maintained that every skateboarder should ride a Santa Cruz at least once in their life.

there is a difference with P2's. i wouldnt say they "give you pop" but the pop does last alot longer, meaning the tail doesnt get flimsy nearly as fast. theyre also considerably thinner & lighter. i didnt really notice it at first but when i went back to a regular 7ply that shit felt like a brick & had to get used to it. like i said they still dont get flimsy though. my last deck was a flip p2 & i skated that shit HARD (alotta road trips & high impact skating) and the middle lasted longer than my tail did so theyre pretty strong in that aspect as well

i know pretty much all those other gimmicks suck but P2's are the shit. i honestly hope they become the standard 4-5 years from now. the only reason im not on one now is because my local shop didnt have em yet Undecided

p2 decks
hemp plys
power plys
keystone techology
flip new wave
kevlar plys
douple impact technology


none of that hyper technology bullshit has ever worked better than a normal wooden skateboard. it's all just created to make the skaters (the consumers) buy more expensive bullshit.

that being said, end this terrible thread.

If there ever really was a truly superior skate technology people would say it's cheating.

Those "slide-pads" didn't help skating much, I can tell you that.

Back in the early 2000's I came up on of those Bulletproof Kevlar skateboards for free. It actually wasn't bad. Granted it sounded a little different when you popped. But it was nice having a board that didn't break that my friends and I could always have around in case one of us broke our deck, and didn't have cash for a new one right away. It was also fun because we could take the trucks off and fuck around with it in the snow during the winter, and we wouldn't have to worry about it getting waterlogged. It took about 5 years for it to get a really gnarly razor tail, and it finally died when some kid decided to use those Randoms pound in hardware.

Another friend back in high school got one of those metal Aircraft decks. That thing was awful. It was aluminum, or some shit. It was real bulky but, only a tad heavier than a normal deck. It slid shitty, and sounded awful when did an ollie. Pop was just weird too. The funnest part of that board was watching my friend spending about a half hour focusing the thing.

Sounds like a sales pitch from one of the X-Treme BMX'ers that work at Zumiez.
