Having only been skating again for like 9 months, I have a decent list of shit purchases

Krux K5's, two pairs (zero turn)
9" Popsicles (too big)
8.5" popsicles (too small)
Shaped boards in general (inconsistency)
Riser pads (why)
Huge, soft wheels (why was I building cruisers for tricks)
Es Accel Slims (narroe as fuck and cheaply made)


Pretty much found my goldilocks setup now
8.75x32.5-33x14.75-15"
Royal ultra lights 8.75
Spitfire F4 classics 52mm
Mini logo bearings

I've been considering sizing up, I've been running 8.5" forever but with all the good 8.75s available it may be time... Specifically, I'm waiting for the new BA 8.8 shape that he's been testing for a while

Purchased a long time ago but set up an 8.25 quasi and had a session on it. It already feels more dead than my weeks old real. Really want to convince myself I like these boards so I can support quasi but I just canít. Maybe Iíll try one of their bbs pressed decks but they seem to scattered throughout each season

Was in a shop yesterday that got a large Quasi order in. YeahÖa mix of PS and non PS wood it seemed. Most were PS, from what I could tell but there were a few that clearly werenít.

Yeah I checked their site and looks like the Crockett 8.5 and the 8.3 Henry twin tail are the BBS decks this season.

Also, saw this right after opening the shrink wrap. Really PS Stix?

Iím going to have to agree on PS going down hill lately . Iíve broke a few GX boards way to quickly, seem just way flexible compared to bbs wood

Just set up an 8.125 Quasi the other day and had my first session on it today. Thirty minutes of flatground and it already feels dead.

Pretty bummed since I absolutely love the shape and dimensions of this thing.

I also noticed the green middle ply on one edge has a about a two-inch section that is discolored and cracked. It almost looks rotten. That section of ply looked like it had been filled in with putty to cover it up. I dug into it a bit with a kitchen knife and it is definitely some kind of filler. 

Going back to skating a month-old steep concave deathwish that feels stiff as hell and brand new compared to this junk.

I put some 1.5 mm risers and some bigger wheels on my Quasi to see if I can breathe some life into it and make the pop feel a little heftier.

I'm giving it one more session. If it sucks, I'm parting with it.

Ha, that fuckerÖ


But I do like ps boards the best, even tho they are very hit or miss.
Iíve laid some to the side for a long while, came back and loved em. Not sure whats up with that. Some were sog and then dried out or something

Had one good Quasi board, then another dry piece of shit that crumbled like a cracker.
