The top stamp is sick....let us know how they are skating....

before this one i had a choco with the older wood and this is a huge improvement.
new wood feels stiff and snappy, held up well during a weekend of non-stop skating..
old wood was chipped in a matter of mins from bailed flip tricks and had more pressure cracks than a wal-mart board.

I'm happy enough with it, maybe it will restore some faith in the crail boys


That is good to hear. I personally prefer girl/chocolate shapes but the old wood sucked so I havenít bought one in about 3 years. Might pick one up if the local shop gets some with the stamp on top.

the one i have is the nickname series, G027. loved that shape but hated the quality of the decks. once a year ill buy a craildeck because i get sucked in with a killer series and remember why i don't buy them.
that said if they keep this quality i'll run with them for a bit.

last deck i had that the wood felt this solid was a northern co... I'm sure they are totally different but that nice sturdy feeling was there

Why couldn't they have just gone to Bareback/Generator?
Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

Wanted to bump this to get more feedback on the new Crail boards? The last two Chocolate series have been great and I'm actually digging the Girl x Sub Pop collab.

Lance or 144p?

Anyone skating a new Crail board? Esmith5488 are you still skating yours?

I'm keeping an eye on this and the response has been so-so....someone had mentioned in another thread the board sogginng out and being dead quickly.....Still looks like an improvement but maybe not good enough yet.

Yep still skating mine, had kinda planned on grabbing a new one on this skate trip I took last week but really didnít need one. The nickname series deck I have still feels great and hasnít fallen victim to the normal crailtap chipping and cracking and it still feels snappy (well as snappy as a two month old deck can feel )

I would say if your shop has one with the stamp on top and itís a shape you like give it a shot, I know the subpop series should all be the better wood.. at least from the ones I saw at spot

I went back to back with old wood and new wood and itís a difference you can tell right away

Seems like Maxallure skateboards are using old Crail wood? The shapes and concave looks like em.

I bought the new Rudy Johnson Futbol reissue from '98. The laser etching on top looks like the woodshop in China that Habitat used for the Stripes series last year. I had the Dela from that series and really liked it.

Do we have any details on the concave numbers?  I almost rang through a couple decks but got cold feet abou the boards being super flat.....getting stuck with two would bum me out...

For anyone thinking about ordering one of those BOGO Rick boards the Illuminated, Sketchy OG, and Sub Pop are the newer runs with the laser etchings on top. I need a new board and love a good deal so I couldn't resist, hopefully I don't get burned.

When I finish work later today I'll take a pic of the new G027 next to an older G027. The concave is similar, and the new stuff is mellow but it's not as flat overall.

Is the North American Maple thing special? Or is that the 'new wood'?

They don't show it on the pics of the top of that Rudy Johnson board (on crailtap), and I feel like I saw an instagram post about a special run of NAM. I was assuming my 'Sanctuary' deck I just got done skating was the new wood because it felt different, but maybe I'm wrong (no etching).

Currently skating a Chocolate skiduls shape. No complaints, mellow concave, real snappy. Digging it.

I was curious about these new "etched" crailtap decks as well. I love how the new Chocolate chunk decks look, but bummed they don't have my go to 8.375" in that series.

I've been skating a G033 as well.  I wanted to mix it up and bought a Real Full shape and preferred the G033.  I then bought a Santa Cruz Wide Tip, absolutely hated it and then went back to the G033.  I finally came to my senses and bought another (chocolate) G033 for when this one was done.

The new wood is great and the shape is basically a slightly more full B16 without being a "full" shape

I'm currently skating a GO26 skiduls chocolate board. it has those laser etching on top. my last two generator boards broke after 5 weeks so I'm curious to see how this crail board will be in like 4 weeks. so far it feels stiff and strong, I like it.

Riding a G026 Kenny as well. That shape is great and the wood feels really good.
