Nah, it was like a regular board. That sounds strange though.

It was before laser etching and most of those technologies, so boards would have a single stamp hammered in, some would have letters, eg DLX used to have A, K and the little REAL logo stamped on their boards once upon a time.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

I tried looking around but couldn't find anything. Anyone know where CCS blanks are pressed?

anywhere they can - as of right now anyways
I wish I'd known that at best we only have 20 summers at a decent skate level.
From then on it's low impact skating and trying not to forget tricks. 20 summers. And then it's over.

@radcunt

This is the thread I was looking for after you asked about blanks.


Unless something has changed I think as per the last page, people are pissed that what they ordered has not been made as they are way behind and the size / production was off on the board they did get, but that is just what I am reading.

Ah thanks, had a read and it's not looking too good in being able to get some, especially shipped to Australia.

Old mate from Omni is making boards in Australia (Victoria I think) and is on instagram...

I bought a couple Prime blanks from SoCal skate shop over the winter. Put them up on my closet shelf for a couple weeks, no closet doors and the air in here isn't too dry or moist. They were also stacked on top of other boards that were BBS/Generator. I took the blanks down one day and stood on them, was gonna maybe grip one up. Both started making crazy cracking and popping noises and then I look to see all the plies were brittle and cracked all over the place. The boards did not arrive that way, either. Stood on all the BBS boards and they were perfectly fine. Made me sketched out about any Prime board and I will never buy one again or recommend.

I am no expert on the subject, but that sounds like a rushed curing process. Prolly due to corner cutting in production timelines, in order to speed up manufacturing that resulted from the COVID supply chain chaos. Prime was likely fielding orders from a bunch of new clients that typically used other wood shops prior to the pandemic.
Not that they had a stellar reputation for quality before this all went down, but I had never heard of that issue from they before now.
Thanks for the warn.
Iím going to continue to not by their product.

They're clutch. It's decent wood but they quickly develop pressure cracks for me.

I bought two 15"wb 10.5" Skate Paige uncuts.  Used Primitive Vilani 10" egg for board 1. Board 2 was double tailed CK1 phawt shape 7" "tails".  Used tail end and flipped it, so kind of symmetrical phawt, cut to 9.25 (9.0 at middle truck hole pattern. Have yet to skate. Blanks looked good. Sorry for long post.

hey Sonny were the WB actually 15? I have been struggling to find the shape I skated for many years - 8.5x15x33 (usually a lil wider when measured).

Thinking of buying a few of these and buying whatever tools I need to shape them down. street skating but tall and loved the shape but the company (service?) doesnt seem to be in business anymore.

Yep, these (uncuts) had 15"wb predrilled. You'd be good to go. If 35th Ave were to get their 10" pops, that'd be a go too. Set up a 10" with 15"wb, couldn't hang with width. Cut down to 8.625 with that 15"wb. Smidge too long, but super stable. Here are some old pics post cut down and shape

Are you just tracing the shape onto the uncut, or measuring from center and using a paper template?

Tracing with board. Lined up mounting holes then traced. If donor different wb, I just flip the donor to whatever tail or nose I want to use. Before cutting I measure from mounting holes to trace line to make sure they're fairly even. Can have some variance, just sand down with rasp to even or close as even. Hand shaping is very zen, throw some tunes on and zone out. I highly recommend.  I had a 9" Creature popsicle that I just hand shaped to a football like shape. Sky is the limit. Good luck.
