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.

Ok

Re: Hopps, I emailed them in 2019 and was told that All Hopps decks are bonded at out their warehouse on Long Island, NY but are on Generator wood. Traffic, Isle, Magenta and Theories decks are also all bonded on generator wood.  But then I bought the Jahmal Williams Dreamer deck, and saw this stamped.

Hope this helps somewhat.

Any know what the deal is with DLX price points (e.g. the Antihero 'Copier Eagle' boards). Are they BBS too? And if so, are they just made different?

why do the krroked $40 decks with eyeballs all over print suck so much?

The shape is good but it just feels so hollow. I bought 2, the first one lost pop so quick, im sure the 2nd will as well.

As said in the other thread, they are the pricepoint decks, which are a cheaper version of the same shapes and concaves, all DLX seem to be the same be it Krooked, Antihero or Real (renewal) decks.  Made by BBS still, but way different in how they hold up, from how long they last to how easily they break, when compared to pro wood.

I have found that the ones that have all natural ply layers often just do not hold up compared to even the ones with the one top colour, so for anyone who goes hard on their board, or breaks boards, I would stay with the pro wood and not the pricepoint decks.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

That stamp is Clutch, and it would seem that Clutch has been supplying most second tier brands and distributors (and even other woodshops) who put graphic heat transfers on boards that used to come from / now could not get wood from BBS / Generator during the shortages with the pandemic.

I will amend the listings accordingly with * 2021 for those brands.

Thanks for the info. :)

YES! RESPECT!
...now any feedback, info, on quality of boards from said mfgs. would be the icing; like wood source, glues/epoxy, stiffness, pop/durability, warpage, concaves, press style, etc..

All info now up to date as far as I can tell, lists sorted, etc.

Brands that seem to be in a few places / shops / countries I don't know about that I can see on some shop sites:

Visual

Colours Collectiv (which also has carbon top, so I am thinking Dwindle / Excel China for wood)

https://concrete-visionary.com/product/colours-collectiv-rocket-girl-carbon-fiber-skateboard-deck/

https://super-shop.com/i269447-colours-collectiv-kelvin-hoefler-deck-yamada-crossing-borders


ATM

Beer City Skateboards

Vision (reissues)

I'm wondering, has anybody ridden a cafe deck?

I like the graphics a lot, but curious about the shape.

Looked some up as I don't recall the name, but they come up as Skateboard Cafe and are said to be pressed by Dwindle and seem to be fairly standard shapes and sizes.

This shop has really good views, both top and bottom in clear detail:

Some notes.

Finesse is done by progress dist, which I think gets their wood from China. I asked progress what wood they use and didnít get a response.

Other notable brands from progress are roller horror, Willy workshop

Also,

Drifter, legend & AD are smaller us skateboard mfg that can be added to to the list. Legend makes h street and plan b reissues. Drifters biggest brand i think is moonshine

Setting up this Real Skate Shop now.  Saw the heat transfer was cracked straight down the middle from nose to tail. Felt it and there's a depression an inch wide as well. Roman Numeral skate within sticker. No corrupted ply of course. 44 bucks I didn't expect much. The 8.25 is wider than the 8.5 which is funny.  Will check the krooked price point next time because I'm pretty sure it has a stained bottom ply.

Tbh I'd skip the krooked pp and get a tactics shop deck or something instead. I rode a pp deck late last year and setup a tactics one recently and there's a significant difference in quality.

I just finished skating the second of two Primitive decks I bought late last year. A PRod and a Spencer Hamilton. Both had made in China stickers. Anyone know what shop? For the record both were excellent decks and stayed poppy for a good length of time.

Where are you?

US and here in AU seem to be BBS, but EU seems to be something else (China) but I haven't seen pics or anything else.

I am thinking it could be the same as the newer Girl / Chocolate woodshop now, as they seem to be making good boards, certainly different to a couple of other woodshops from China that seem to have terrible concave and shapes.

Been looking at some primitive decks as well. Mostly the 8.0's but I kind of want to hold out to see if a 7.8 will show up in a drop or hopefully a Rodrigo announcement? , as they have put them out before. Sucks because of the resellers it's hard to find one just to ride, I don't want Goku on my fucking wall.

Iím in the US. I ordered the boards directly from Primitive. Off topic -- the free Primitive grip with the flag cutout was great. Iíd skate it all the time if I could.

I have updated some others I have heard of or seen recently, but I think there are still some I am yet to find or add.  The interesting thing too is that some boards seem to have generic sizes laser printed and no manufacturing info which appear to be from somewhere in China, but as yet, no one wants to say where they are from, so I feel like adding a line with something like this:

Unknown / China:
Finesse
Roller Horror
Willys Workshop

BBS and others is a good answer.

Puts them in the "good woodshop" category, but with covid maybe they got their supply stopped like many other brands.

Thank you!

Can someone tell me what woodshop this is from? It's a Pizza deck, ordered it expecting the same shape and dims as the Quasi/WKND shape i usually ride, because the measurements on the website are the same and the description says PS Stix but the measurements don't match up and this is not the usual PS top ply laser etching.

Cheers


.

Edit: just scrolled up and saw the HOPPS board with same stamp and sticker. Guess you can add Pizza to the list of companies using Clutch, or add PS Stix to the list of companies subcontracting to Clutch. Lame.
some of you guys are sexually attracted to your etnies marianas, and it shows

They (allegedly) make their own boards in Costa Mesa, still. Along with Schmitt Stix, Hosoi, Elephant, Honey (longboards) and a couple others. I wish they would go back to silk screening.
