Dude at a skateshop I went to told me that sometimes the glue doesn't finish drying and that's why they aren't that good

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.

Yes that's how I observed that they suck.

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

Oh my bad I wasn't interested in your original post


Fair enough.

UPDATE!!!

I saw both boards at the local shop that I originally started the thread about and both decks are dipped. The paint just isn't super thick, so you can kinda see some wood grain. I grabbed the Krooked Bobby Worrest cause the Steve Olsen collab's length was too long.

Growing up we thought stained boards were 'cheap' and would be flexi/break easier ;)
