Any thoughts on P2 boards? I'm a heavier skater and i skate 8.5 but thinking about switching to an 8.75 or 9 and don't know if I should stick with an anti-hero or try a P2 creature. Trying to be economic here and want the one that's gonna keep its stiffness longer
Well,p2 is your choice then if you just want your board to be stiff ítill the end, those things are strong as fuck. Iíd still prefer AH over Creature because of shapes tho.

See i'm not even sure what shape I want really. I just know i want it to be between 8.75 and 9.0 and i want it to last as long as it can underneath my fat body...
Just get a Powell flight deck, they have a few 8.7 popsicles and 8.7-9.1 in shapes. You will never break it and it actually performs really well.

I'm around 230 pounds skating 8,75.

Been skating only BBS/Generator boards for the last 2 years.

For me, they're quite durable but in my case, it depends on how much I skate. The more I skate the fewer decks I broke.

The powell flight looks a solid choice but I can't afford 150 euros in a deck (yup that's the fucking price in europe).

They are expensive and 150 euros is crazy to imagine for a deck I know, (they are $120 here in Canadian dollars) honestly will last 10 times longer than any other deck though. For the most part I find P2 decks kind of a gimmick, they get soggy and I’ve had two that warped after a few weeks, one from Creature and one from Flip both last year. Also a planB P2 last year that was warped straight from the factory. The double impact from dwindle is a much better choice but they are impossible to find in anything bigger than 8.5. I’m 215 pounds, honestly didn’t notice any difference between a P2 deck and a regular BBS or ps stix, in fact the higher price for a P2 and the amount of problems I’ve had it kind of makes it a worse choice. I feel like the Powell decks are the first technology deck I’ve tried that blew me away and actually was a completely different experience, I’ve been skating one for almost a year now and it feels exactly how it did from day one. If you ever get a chance to try one or find one cheaper it’s worthwhile. If you like the P2 deck or wanna try it give it a go, but I wouldn’t specifically go out of my way to get one if you don’t like the shape, it doesn’t skate any better than a regular deck in my opinion. Still razor tails the same, still gets soggy. Plus the whole “spring loaded pop” thing they market is bullshit.

To the earlier posts about warping...I bought both of these boards on the same day. I couldn't decide which I wanted so I bought both.

Quasi Crockett (PS Stix)
Isle Knox (Generator)



So I brought them home and they were kept together in the same room, the exact same conditions. No difference at all. But what is bummed me out is the Quasi (PS Stix) twisted like a pretzel. I've skated warped boards before but this one is pretty extreme so I'm not even going to bother. It's a wall hanger now. The Isle (Generator) has no warp at all. I posted earlier, I've had boards from all shops warp on me but it seems to happen most frequently with PS pressed stuff for whatever reason.

damn that fucking sucks guys, I've been holding off on buying a new board until the weather stabilizes into spring, seems like something PS should try to fix because there are a fuck load of boards out there this year from what i've seen irl and here that are straight unskatable

edit: makes me want to give control another shot once new studio boards hit some shops, my thinking: Canadian maple, pressed in Canada, and sold and skated in Canada should be the safest bet in regards to climate/humidity based warpage, just always found their shapes kinda flat for my tastes

I posted earlier, I've had boards from all shops warp on me but it seems to happen most frequently with PS pressed stuff for whatever reason.

I've been getting the same thing a lot lately, mostly Generator decks though. They're new releases, I get them in the mail (from Skatewarehouse or Tactics), take them out and can see them warping already. I usually just send them right back but a couple I've kept and hung on the wall. I also kept two Polars that weren't too bad and plan on skating those as cruisers. I'm used to getting one or two per year that are slightly warped but lately it's way more frequent and a lot worse! I know in winter it's a lot easier for this to happen but it usually takes quite a bit of time being exposed to dry electric heat, left in direct sunlight or extreme humidity fluctuations for it to occur. The odd thing is I've never gotten a warped board from Pennswood, South Central, Clutch or Quincy, it's only PS and Generator. I went to Escapist the other day and me and the guy working there found almost a dozen warped decks on their racks, mostly PS but a few Generator as well. I've got a bamboo/maple hybrid deck on it's way, if that's any good I might be sticking with those and American made/Clutch decks for awhile.

Oh and look what UPS just dropped off from SkateWarehouse! My brand new Sovrn deck that just came out and of course, it's warped! It's really bad too, tail angles one way, nose the other and the concave is uneven. Such a bummer.


That's unskatable? Dude, I think you're just nitpicking, that looks fine.

but from another perspective, depending where you live and how much you make, you spend like 1.5-4 hours of your life working to earn the money to buy a board and it should be 100% proper

Noticed northern co got a * and is listed under bbs/generator as well as south central, but didnít see a post about it.  Whatís the story?

Talked to someone who works for their distributor and they told me recently theyíve decided to start using generator for most of their boards. I believe newer batches will mostly generator. If I see them again, Iíll get better clarification.
hmmmm their last run last year was still on SC if I'm not mistaken? The board I ended up picking up had made in USA printed on the top of it. Is this like their 3rd wood shop?

Just asked Northern Co on IG where they were switching to. It's Clutch, not Generator so you can fix the directory accordingly.


That sux, the reason I specifically went with a NC board last time was because they were still made in the US

You can see the concave is off center. I bought a Hockey board specifically as wall hanger. When I received it, the deck concave was off center. One side of the deck was steep and opposite side was flat.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I had a Rune Glifberg Flip P2 a couple years back and it lasted awhile but it did get soggy. My main concern is the sogginess actually. i'm not skating anything to gnarly to the point where i'm worried about snapping that much (except for boardslides , cuz like I said i'm fat). I wasn't even aware of powell had. I'll check out these powell flights if they retain their stiffness.

And I'm at an 8.5 now with my Real board and I think i want to upgrade to something a bit bigger as I've put on a few pounds recently haha. It's gotten quite soggy as I've had it for awhile. I've had my eye on an 8.8 Creature P2 kimbell board but I'll look at the powell flight boards. I hope they're better.

So what's the word on crailtap boards now? Did they change the wood? Did anyone try em?
I took a bunch of photos comparing the new vs old. They are definitely slightly lighter and thinner than the old crail boards, with better quality graphics. They feel more crisp, to me old crailtap boards were really rounded which made them feel thick, these are more square on the rails, and the shapes are more pronounced, however my personal opinion would be that they are marginally better than old crailtap wood but still not as good as some other stuff out there. Give them a try because maybe you will find you like them, there is definitely a difference. I would be wary ordering online because thereís still old wood mixed in with the new, Iím pretty sure all the new ones have a matte style graphic finish and a dark middle ply but Iím not certain.

Does anyone know if the baker b16 shape is the one thatís 8.475, 14.25 wheelbase and 31.8 length?

Thanks for that did you weight them by any chance?

I definitely prefer thinner (looking) boards like the DLX stuff but had a thick and heavy looking Habitat (EU made by Jart) and it felt great and held up strong but it still looked pretty thick.

Damn dude, thanks alot! The dark middle ply was a great tell too, now I can just look em up before ordering if my local doesn't have the shape I want.
The reason I liked crailtap boards so much was that they felt light already, and now they're even lighter? Hopefully they hold up better though as that's the only reason I didn't skate them exclusively.

And about the b16, yeah that's it. They have a 8.5 x 32 with a 14.5" wheelbase as well, but if it says 8.475 it's usually the b16.

The Powell flight boards are considerably pricier but the trade off is they don't break or sog out.... They razor just as fast as anything else.....

They are way clunkier but those chapman pressed boards always seemed indestructible to me....

i want studio to do well but god control boards suck, they refuse to router the edges on the top ply for shop decks. their boards go soggy and break quickly.

i have noticed that awkward slightly hollow feeling the pop has too..., combined with the flat shapes i just gave up, I've also heard "they're cheap" from someone who dealt with them which i take meant they wont make improvements, like you were saying

I would feel really good only skating studios, alas

I know board feel is so personal and different for everyone but I've liked the Control boards I skated. But just to qualify that, I go through boards pretty quickly, usually setting something new up every 4-6 weeks, but I've had decent luck with them. They're also super mellow, almost flat, so they were right up my alley.

Not sure if these were posted before but here is a video Generator released a few years ago showing their factory



And, here is a tour of Santa Cruz explaining their graphics process.



Don't know how to embed the video, so if you have to go to you tube if you want to watch.

Checked the new quasi shipment at the local and didn't see any type of warping. Saw several different "quality control" dimples on separate decks. I'm starting to think that the dimples mean what order the boards are pressed in kinda like the dlx Roman numeral stamps. I could just be over thinking it...

I bought a Quasi a few months ago but have been injured and not used it. It wasn't warped when I got it but now it is (and kinda badly too), it's just been sitting in room temperature for a couple of months. Kinda bummed.

Hey fellas, so I ordered this board online and noticed when I took the cellophane off thereís this part along the sides of the plies in one spot that appears to be a crack? Never seen this kind of thing before. I dragged my finger nail across and made a few marks but you can still see the distinct jagged line. What you think, skate it or contact for warranty?
