I really like a whole bunch of the chocolate decks, especially the car ones.

I would NEVER skate one though because their heat-transfers are trash, you can scrape off graphic with your fingernail.

The graphics have been pretty flaky some times, but I like the shapes and I don't expect the graphics to last long after skating it anyways.

it's just a bummer when your graphics flake off on stupid things like dropping in

What I hate most is when you get paint flakes all over your clothes when you carry your board. There's a benefit of mallgrabbing.

your thumb can take off flakes too when it's sweaty. This is all the more reason to ride a pocket pistols, which I am.

I just had the Mariano Jaws board and the graphics seemed to last better than previously.

I think they've fixed the heat transfers.  I had the BA Beauty & the Beast photos deck and that one seemed to flake a bit more than the recent one's I've had.  Remember when Girl/Chocolate would screen over old unsold decks with new graphics?  I think I had a Mike York that had an older graphic "hidden" under it.

I'm hyped that Guy's board's are now 8's.

The last few catalogs it has seemed like most Girl 8's are Mariano's. There's a lot more people with 8's in this catalog, which is good because almost all of Choc's 8's have been Calloways, and I have yet to find a reason to dig him. (Mainly it's his head that freaks me out).

I think they could to step it up to 8.125 and 8.25+ a little more often.
