Madrid's old factory was near me back in the day (89-90?). There was a crack about deck wide between their neighboring building, and my friends crawled thru and found blemished decks in their trash can, hahaha.

just got a couple UMA decks from spanish distributor and they had the "made in china" sticker on them. Distribution guy confirmed me they're actually made in Excel somewhere in china. Board skates great though. Don't know if this is going on for the "out of usa" ones or the whole production.
[close]

Definitely BBS in USA from what I have heard and in Australia - seen and stood on them here - so that is interesting that the market there has Excel wood, Europe is it?

Is the concave more mellow or steep, kicks spooned or flat, if you know what I mean, or compared to any other known woodshop in the feel of the board?

Curious more than anything, but I know Excel have made a lot of the carbon / mixed material boards for other brands too (which hold up really well and people like skating).

despžte both being the same dimensions (width-lenght-wb) them both feel completelyh different

- maite-taped model: nose and tail definetly have the "concave"/spoon feel as some BBS i've had in the past (actually i was coming from a Black Label 8.25 and couldn't tell a big difference. Maybe just lenght wise.

- full dip ("hand model"): flatter over all and kicks with no concave (closer to some price points enjoi's i've had in the past)

can't tell this is happening all around erope but at least france/spain/portugal it is, since it's the same distribution

People had said Chapman (who are not making boards anymore) are getting their boards from Clutch but I would be curious to know if this is still the case and what they do have for sale.

I follow their Instagram, but haven't heard or seen much from them really.

Have you hit them up on their website or other media?

They're clutch blanks so it varies depending on what shape. The 8.2 O shape (the square shape) is around 31.5/31.6 and 14.25 while some of the more standard Popsicles are 31.8 or 32 and can be 14.25 or 14.5 depending on shape.

If you're on a budget and don't mind lightly used boards shoot me a PM with what you like and where you're located and I'll see what I can do. I skate 8.1/8.2 and am currently trying to whittle down my unreasonably large stock of decks.

From a recent-ish conversation about the sizing on the Clutch blanks that they're using:

First post of first page gets updated and Uma is BBS according to that.

I wish I didn't have to look at your sig in every thread tbh. That shit is annoying and usually so are your posts.

In addition to their own boards, they also make masters and jigs for other brands.

Dunno how I missed this one but there appear to be some clutch wknd boards on the market. Not the new ones (those are PS) but rather the run before that where I think they reran some old graphics. Just noticed it while perusing the Zumiez site (which oddly enough is one of the better places to get info since they take actual top pics.. Definitely don't trust their listed measurements though, they're usually wrong).

It sounds a lot cooler than it is. I like the idea of a side view of a Labrador smoking a pipe wearing a trucker hat.

But no, it is actually Snoopy's cousin Spike, and it is not woodshop specific but an FA logo that is on all their boards.

I was thinking some one would give the correct answer, and you did.

Yes that is the same on PS Stix (older) and BBS (newer) wood, both have Made in Mexico too, but PS wood has SN# PS19393930 on it too.

I had pics of both of those somewhere, but couldn't tell you where right this minute.


Here is the generic PS Stix top to show anyway.

I think The skateboard factory aka customskateboards.com should also be added. They have their own factory in Huntington beach

Their boards are pretty good. Also if you ever bit the bullet on some weird promo board from an event or band, they probably made it.

Added - thanks!

Some others I have looked up seem like they have a lot going on, but don't actually make the boards themselves, so are only a reseller of where ever they get the boards from, so I hadn't put them on the list, even though others have sent a DM about them or similar things.

It is amazing how many people and places actually make boards, but I also wonder on what scale some are, compared to the X thousand each day to the maybe X thousand a year if that.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

The pangs of nostalgia got me thinking of Listen / BLVD skateboards. Ownership changed hands recently but I'm looking at the older models with Supa, Toya, Peterson and Gonzalez. Anyone know which shop does boards with 2 alignment dots? And what are the general dims / board shape?

That's a clutch deck. I was riding BLVD decks for a bit and they used to be clutch decks, the 8.375 was always the S7 shape that Stereo and Birdhouse used to use but the last 8.25 i picked up last summer was from a different wood shop. I'm guessing it was a china deck. It had a lot more concave in both the kicks and mid section and had 8.25 stamped in the center of the rear truck mount. I haven't gotten around to skating it since i was on a mellow deck kick for a while but seemed like it wasn't as nice as the clutch wood, not as dry/crisp... I honestly have had great experiences with clutch decks, they seem to hold up a little better than the bbs boards i've been riding lately. I swear they get stronger as they age too.

I know they Rob G sold the brand off late last year, it's being run out of Brazil now I believe and they do boards with a fiberglass top laminate. These were definitely flatter all across, not my first choice of board.

The ones I'm looking at are the older ones when the US team was still on. But thanks for the insight on the Clutch decks, I'll check out their IG for the dims on the 8.125 & 8.25

Updated the list with a few more.

I had BLVD listed as Woodchuck, so not sure when that was from.
