What decks are you saving?

What ones couldn't you resist skating?

Post your collection, your valuables.

I started skating that deck a couple days before he passed away. Was such a good board, I couldn't force myself to stop skating it and hang it up. It's old and beat up in a box somewhere, now. I have a few old/broken decks that my girlfriend painted hanging on the wall.

I think Van would have preferred that you skated it. I don't keep up with news about skate decks -- i.e. new graphic lines, etc. -- but there's a memorial board that has been run in limited numbers. It has Van doing a back 5-0 on that massive SF ledge from his Krooked Kronicles part. Worth scouting out if you can find it. I'm not too sure the status on that one. I'm sure 94% of posters here are aware of it, but for the 6%, there you go...

This. But i kept both of the van boards i bought. i wanted to try and buy a third for the wall, but i blew it and waited too long, even though my shop bought about 100 or so of his boards.

i heard sean foy briefly mention that board the other day while at borchard. it'd be tight to at least see it in person.

You've probably seen me at Borchard park. I skate with Foy a lot and with Nick McLouth -- who obviously works with you -- from time to time. We're skating Borchard tomorrow if you're into it.

i'd love to but i've got school most of tomorrow.

I have a pretty strange collection...
The Jason Lee and Chris Pastras boards were the first line of the new Stereo. They're both signed and I was super hyped at the time.
The Firm board is hand painted by Lance himself. That's something I want to pass on to my kids.


This is my favorite Manik series ever (until Noel Sinclair Boyts comes out next month).

Tuna: I have little information. I know Van's family will be receiving some and I saw one at Five Points (not for sale, but on the wall -- not to be touched or moved). That's about the extent of my knowledge. I know the family was really pleased with the deck.
