so are FA just putting those hologram things on themselves or what, i've seen some shonky looking things come from PS Stix at times but theres no way they'd send out something that shitty to a customer right?

Apparently they all look like that. I thought it'd be a slick or maybe have a clear sheet of the heat transfer shit on top of everything, not an intern with some gorilla glue. That's the kind of shit you see a sample of and are supposed to say "we aren't doing the hologram boards because they look like shit"

Apperently they have no issues doing such a thing.

They really should have done a different  process like sfb said. It's really fucked.

It's too bad, that's my first FA board and I really like the idea for the graphic and the shape, but I can't back a company putting shit like this out. So that's my last FA board as well

Lol no doubt.

Yes the kremer is super comfy. It's not gonna last long but that's ok. I'll be happy to get a month out of a great shoe. I got a few pairs of course since they were on sale. I think I only paid $40/pair. I like the colourway too. Looks dope

Let us know how the crupie are? I've been looking to try something different than formula fours although ill most likely he right back to spitfire.

Has anyone ripped the hologram off or skated a board until it came off? I wanted the AVE Terminator board, but immediately told myself, "No," after I saw how fucked it was. I would not be surprised if they fucked up a batch of boards and added the hologram shit to salvage/sell them.
i was not vaccinated as a child and i turned out fine.

Ordered sunday at night and got it today at 11am.
I'm living in germany at the moment so that could be the reason since Titus is german.  

Big Baby Jesus, I never had Formula 4s so I can't really compare. I actually never had any wheel from the major brands dunno why, I guess I like to try the smaller companies. ahah But I'll do a review on the wheel thread later for sure.

Saw some instagram photo of the ave terminator board where the whole thing just fell off.

I could see that happening.

Here is a close up pic (with shitty lighting)

Look close around the edges of the graphic






Wow, that is embarrassing, especially when Jimi Britches always declares FA as shitting over all other board companies.

I saw some dudes AVE terminator board where the glued on plastic piece just came off entirely on a warm up boardslide. I've had problems with the quality of their regular graphics so I can't imagine how shitty these would be.

The guys at Pitcrew told me FAs split color plys is the reason a lot of the decks delaminate or break really easily. I think they essentially just cut two different top plys and glued them together, correct me if I am wrong though
Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

Thanks and for the info but I had a horrible experience with Titus.

After 10 days I contacted them to know where was my package, and I  got the same info I could find by myself clicking on the tracking.

5 days later and tired to wait I called DHL and they told me that the package never left Germany because it didn't had the address... WTF

I Asked them again how I should proceed and I got my money back without any reply. After an angry mail from my part I got a 5% discount... Ridiculous coming from their mistake.

Probably in Germany works well, but my shipment to Spain was a disaster..

Will be setting this up soon. Guru's new deal, the board brand is called Birch. I don't know who is pressing them. The shape is pretty straight forward, similar to BBS shape, and the concave is moderate to flat so I'm pretty hyped to set it up.

Have heard so many stories about their shady business over the years, but that skatebus tour in barcelona was the last thing for me that turned me off. I'd like to say back in -03 or somthing like that Titus organized these charter bus tours from germany to barcelona. It was basically hundred of kids to arrive in one spot with that bus, leaving shitloads of litter after them and moving on to the next spot. Locals were super pissed because those kids shut down so many good spots, and police were getting more and more annoyed by the skaters. I think atleast partly because of Titus and his grom tours skating was illegal in bcn for few years and people were getting more and more tickets for skating...
