5Boro VHS Tapes Series

These just rocketed to the top of my constantly rotating "next deck purchase" list.  Perfectly designed and executed.

Yeah these are tight. I've never skated a 5Boro, but I may have to now.

Damn. My wallet just snapped shut. I'd have a whole wall with that lot on if I could.

Was gonna grab the Akers 8.5 after work, but his sold out in both sizes by the time I got home.  Luckily there isn't a bad one in the series so I nabbed that 8.25 Akira Ishizawa.  Super clean.

One of the best series in recent memory for sure. Stellar all around. I'm actually glad it's china wood because I won't feel bad hanging one or two of these on the wall.

I liked the Cigarette-series, especially the 5BORO/MARLBORO-deck.

I have never been good at wall boards. I can't not skate them.  I'm gonna see how I feel when it arrives. Never skated one though I've followed the brand since its infancy, so I'm mildly curious.

Sidenote: did I hear they moved production back from china, or is that just rumor and speculation?

I'm not quite sure on this one. I had a Willy Akers board from their last series and it didn't feel like Crailtap wood to me. But people say it is, so maybe I'm confused.

they're really flat. nose and tail are not steep at all. kind of an odd shape unless you like skating transition.
