Man, how many times does this have to come up? If you're just thinking about the REAL logo boards then you've never really looked into the brand.

They make tons of great graphics as one offs.
The jpegs lukring behind these links say otherwise:

http://www.realskateboards.com/spring-16-catalog/
http://www.realskateboards.com/summer-16-catalog/
http://www.realskateboards.com/fall-16-catalog/

A few one offs and the Spectrum series looks fine, but it's not mind blowing.
They put out a LOT of chud.

I think Real just puts out a lot of boards.  They make some good graphics, but not every one can be a hit.  People have different tastes.  I d think they put out way too many boards based on the oval logo.  But, if they are selling, why not?

was never that into think skateboards, loved the skaters but hated the graphics, they reminded me of a crappy ska band. and then before the company ended they got into whole-foods-labeling-as-graphics, which i didn't like either

speaking of habitat, i also didnt like that era a few years back where they got a tattoo artist to do graphics. i understand the thinking there but everything that dude made sucked.  glad they're back doing more classic looking stuff.

Probably Real. I was thinking Deathwish, but I just checked their insta and they are kind of killing it.

Sk8Mafia is a dope brand but the graphics are pretty corny most of the time.

Do half naked chicks move product? I buy hookups, but it's more of a anime thing, rather than a nudity thing. I wish that Henry Jones collection was with a team I cared about. but as long as Wes Kremer is sk8mafia4life I hope they are successful forever!

nobody's said DGK yet, although I could see myself riding one of their regular logo boards, but these are all typical offenders.

The sk8 mafia/Henry jones series is pretty awesome. I also really like the Kramer/Kremer and Larry David one offs. If they stepped away from the cartoon graphics I'd pick up mafia decks. Would love to put some money in Wes, Jamie Palamore and Tyler Surrey's pockets.
Mike-Mo is going to be one of the best if not the best skater of his generation. Barring some kind of career ending injury or drug addiction.

I really wish board brands had the balls to stick with a graphic for longer than 3 months. Even brands I like pump out way too many graphics each year for my tastes. Maybe take the time to create a graphic that is good instead of good enough or on trend?

Every company that is not Alltimers, Quasi, FA, Polar, Isle, Pass-Port, Doom Sayers, Lewis Cruise, Anti Hero, WKND. I may have left a couple great ones out?

You didnt mention Krooked and you include Doom Sayers, thats not a board company. One (awesome) limited run doesnt count.

Their second run came out a few weeks ago.

Pocket Pistols, specifically the Pedro Barros models. I know 101 and SMA both re-issued the Natas "Oops/Boom" deck, perhaps without Natas's participation, but does Pedro Barros have any connection to the graphic? Also, their Bowie copy of the copy seemed only to cheapen the original and recent re-issue.

$80 for a deck with a fucking, Craigslist ad...WKND is kind of bland to me, but at least their decks are around $50.

Also, why isn't there isn't any love for The Killing Floor and Politic?

Plan B, LE, Flip, Blind, Element, Darkstar, Almost. A lot of OG companies have some terrible fucking graphics. Real is extremely hit or miss too

When I'm at the skateshop aka my Palace it's all about Politics for me because on one hand there are some Real bad ones and then some Quasi bad ones but all in all I think they're mostly all Fucking Awesome as long as the shape and wheelbase are good and not too Krooked and perhaps in the sale Isle. Every now and again I see some decks that are way out of my Element and I think they should have gone with Plan B and fired they're art director but hey, i'm a bit bi-Polar and don't Enjoi everything

I hate to be "Spitfire Wheels" about this post, but it really stuck a "Hockey" in my "Birdhouse Projects" and it makes me feel more than a little "Bones Reds Bearing".

$80 CDN I'm pretty sure, which is roughly $60 USD. Its kinda just meant to be funny, i have seen some pretty sick graphics from lewis cruise before.

I'm riding this exact board right now its great. I like these graphics where the actual graphic is just in the middle of the board. I like WKND a lot because their logo boards are like this. It gets scratched up anyway so I don't mind. Can't stand those Plan B graphics though.
