Blitz Distrubtion decks have a ton of pop
Tum Yeto are real heavy, but I still like them (Good shape)
And I really like Black Box a lot too

Did I already profess my love for mini logo decks? I forget. The K 127 to be exact.

I'm pretty sure Blitz is Canadian. Not 100% sure though.

Yeah and I have had some good Zoo boards in the past (ok so the last one was in 96....) but I just can't get into the whole Ecko thing.  Love Zered though.  Does Pang still have a board or is he strictly TM now?

pang has been of zoo for a while now. he is dc shoes east coast promotions? manager.

I know zoo isnt well liked here but the boards are done by chapman. that wood is solid.

do you know how long they've been with chapman? harold hunter sold me a blank "prototype" last december and told me that they were using new wood, and it would be out spring 06? anyone clarify this?

Zoo's been made by Chapman since back in the day. They did ONE run of china logo boards, but almost immediately switched back.

I've liked Enjoi boards the most lately, I like the shape, and they feel light for my feet for some reason although probably weight the same as all the others. Lasted quite long too since I skate at least 4-5 times per week and it was good for about 2 months.

Anything pressed by South Central or Drifter.

Then Kayo, and DLX, and Girl/Chocolate. And Alien/Habitat. They are all good. Just personal preference.

ive been riding shop boards, or badnews boards which is a company out of DC that my buddy skates for (i would not recommend, but for $30 i had to try a few.) before the last few cheep decks i had, i was riding a real and it was one of the most memorable decks ive ever had. great shape, great pop.

What are some local/smaller companies you guys support, and how does their wood match up to the major brands?

http://www.badnewsboards.com/
these were the boards i was riding. not the best shape, but they were strong. had a massive nose, and it was shaped really weird. definitely not comfortable to nollie with at first. and the tails were super short and mellow. worth the $30 i payed for them, but not anything more.

I really like Habitat, but they dont press the shapes I like often enough so its hard to get them consecutively. The only deck I've ever had that I considered perfect was a Habitat last summer. I really like the shapes on Girl and Chocolate but the wood is meh, kinda wish they had some deeper concaves too. DLX wood is good but I cant seem to find a shape that I like, the 8.25 feels like an 8 or something and 8.38 feels too wide, I wanna try the 8.12 though which I havent yet.

Just put Dwindle up there, because I'm pretty sure Almost, Blind Cliche, Darkstar and Enjoi plus a few little kid companies are all in there, and they are some of the only boards I ride.

Ive been riding nothing but DLX for a while now, toss in an Instant Winner here and there and you'll never need to stray from the good shit for a long time

Are they still around? Haven't seen a board from them in forever.

I could go on for days on smaller brands. I have tried samples from almost every woodshop in the industry, and really like Drifter and South Central Mfg. I like flatter concave, but the quality from both manufacturers is awesome. The 8.125 Drifter shape is my favorite right now.

Roger uses PS Stix.
