Dipped Boards
« on: June 06, 2016, 12:42:50 AM »
You know the boards that are dipped in all one color like all white or all black, usually?? Like when Mystery first came out, that's all the sold were completely painted boards??

Are they called,"dipped"?? That's what I've always called them...

Anyways, I really like all white dipped boards. I was wondering if anyone knew about a couple decks I was looking at. The first one is a Krooked Bobby Worrest. It's the new series that's limited. Link below...

Also, this Real board they did with Steve Olson...

http://www.skatewarehouse.com/Real_Steve_Olson_Actions_REALized_Full_Deck/descpage-RLSOARDK.html

Are these dipped, or are they just stained white?? Cause they look dipped in those links, but on their sites they look like they're just stained white, or something...

EDIT: Fixed the links.

I'm pretty sure those two are dipped. You cant "stain" anything white, because it would be translucid. it needs to be opaque to cover the wood. I never had a full dipped board but i had a chocolate one that had the top painted and it was my only con against it. The paint would crack at the edges and the griptape peel with it. I had to glue some parts of the griptape and it sucked a bit. Board was cool tho.

Is that not the same link twice? if this is the olson board you're thinking of
http://www.skatewarehouse.com/Real_Steve_Olson_Actions_REALized_Full_Deck/descpage-RLSOARDK.html

I'm quite sure it's a full dip, SKATAN is right, white stain would be translucent

Edit: Fuck what i'm saying, those skatewarehouse photos are deceptive, it looks like s stain on socal and i trust their photos better

Yeah, in the skatewarehouse photos they look dipped because it's full white. In that socal it looks like a just a shade of white, that might be stained or a light coat over it. I dont really know.

Alien used to do a lot of dipped boards when Pendleton was there - noir and brite-lite were pretty regular. I think the brite-lite stuff was the same thing they used to do at Powell. They were fully painted in a transparent neon and a

I have looked at Ryan Lay's board in person 5 separate times and not bought it due to it being dipped.

Is it something that works well? I'm going to paint my current board as soon as the shitty, glued-on graphic peels just a little bit more, so I'm wondering if I could just paint it like that instead of just the bottom. I'm worried about the griptape, most of all.

The sound and feel of it changes when you snap the tail for tricks, in my opinion at least. Doesn't enhance or make it preform worse in any way.

You either hate dipped boards, or you're not really into them. I don't think anyone actually loves them. I had a all white one once. It was one of the best boards I ever had. It was some sort of blank from the local shop back in the day. And now I have a Welcome that I fuck around that's all white and I really like it. That's why I'm asking. Thanks guys!!! Appreciate the feedback.

I might just have to shop around at the locals and see who's got it. You think Deluxe would answer my nerd questions?? Haha.

See!!! Deceptive pics, huh?? That's why I started this thread. Haha. And yeah, I'm blowing it with 2 of the same links. I'll fix that ASAP. Thanks.

The only time I've ever had troubles with a dipped board and griptape was gripping it then skating when it was 5 degrees and the griptape chipping off it pretty bad. I've done the same thing with a normal board and the grip didn't chip. Could have just been the grip though

I don't mind dip boards. I kinda dig the look every now and then. It's been years since I've had one though. I remember I had a pharmacy board many years ago that was dipped white with a pill bottle graphic on the bottom that was on a purple background, probably one of my favorite boards ever; the shape just felt so right and I just thought it looked really cool overall. It didn't feel any more soggy or different from a non dipped board. Also had a couple black dipped local shop decks too and one or two black dipped creatures back in the day that I also thought were really cool.

I had a dipped Habitat from right when they first came out that was my favorite board ever for about a week until it became a soggy mess.

I feel like a stained board has a more protective finish - it can take some whacks around the edges and still keep its integrity. Once you scratch the paint off a dipped board it just feels like raw wood.

For those who oppose the dip, you can easily sand the edge clean post gripping it with the scraps.
Takes me about 5-10 minutes.

But it only takes about 2 seconds to select a board that they didn't coat in thick turds.

Back to my original question, has anyone seen these boards in person??

I'm not off of work until Sunday. I may swing by a couple shops on Friday after work, but knowing me, something will come up.

Trying to figure out if the boards I posted are actually dipped white, or if they're just a super light/white washed color of wood.

Not interested in your opinion on dipped boards, fuck skull

In my defense it was gifted to me and the shape looked good.
