I can't recall what color top I was riding when I fucked myself up bad, but I fucked myself up bad and, if it was a red top, I'd rather just not skate them so as to not tempt fate.

Orange top ply makes a board feel like mush from the start donít know whatís up with that. Double if it also has an orange bottom ply.

Yellow is okay, green is pretty good.

Iím curious how that superstition started but I donít really believe in that.

Have you had issues with red top? Or do you even believe it?

Imperialist propaganda. Next.

So

Stem to stern road rash 6 stitches and a concussion spring 2013

It was a hill bomb gone wrong I did 35-40 mph into
a curb to scorpion and flipped into a wall

I put away that board till 2016

I tore my acl November 2016 same board first day at the skate park 3rd day back on that board

7 staples in my head winter 2018 red top 8.38 clutch.

I don't believe every red top is bad luck. I've been injured on mostly green tops I think.

I'm into purple tops.

orange and black/grey stain always look best to me, but I never really pick out boards based on stain, have never had a red one though so they could indeed be cursed

In middle school I wore a red top once and that was a big nono because the administration banned any showing of the color red because of problems with students being Nortes and Bloods . They made me wear a PE shirt the rest of the day. Also wore red shoelaces one time and they made me take it off and use a 5 inch piece of string to tie my shoes and they only went through the first row of eyelets, had to walk the whole day with my shoes constantly coming off.

I don't mind any color of top ply tbh, as long as there is color. I fucked my ankle on a natural top ply, plus they look really cheap to me.

i believe.

all my redtops sucked ass and broke weirdly. pretty sure i hurt myself really bad on a couple. my first serious ankle injury was with a red top. also red tops look the worst for some reason. i pity anyone who has to ride a redtop. and, this is true, if there's a chance that the board is a red top when ordering online for example, i won't do it. i don't buy red tops ever.

i also dislike green or turquoise tops. i'm indifferent to natural, yellow and blu.

my favorite tops are purple or dark brown/black stain. shoutouts to orange, too, i have good memories about orange tops, they are always welcome.

Backed. Riding one now. Good sessions.

For me, I have a weird superstition about any part of my board being red. It's cool if its red paint from a curb, but I don't really like my board to be red. Wheels, trucks, deck, bolts, everything. Which is weird, cause as a kid I rode hella Alien Spectrum boards, which had red in graphic.

 I was cool with literally any other color top. I actually loved natural tops.

I know a dude who has a thing about blue lighters. I went to light up a blunt while he was driving our crew to the skatepark and he made me throw my lighter out the window! Said he got arrested or something because his friend had one.

I didn't have bad luck with it but I had a backer last year that had a natural bottom layer. Shit looks so booty, especially since it was a white board with black graphics. Gotta have dyed bottom plys. I back the purple preference. Got a yellowtop with a red bottom right now, i sprayed the bottom

Bauhaus members studied primary colors and shapes extensively and assigned them to each other on the basis of certain characteristics.
The artist and Bauhaus teacher Wassily Kandinsky, who was prominently represented in the early documenta exhibitions, is regarded as the founder of these color-shape associations, which he tested with his students. Today, the yellow triangle, the blue circle, and the red square are unmistakably connected to the Bauhaus.

This discussion has been going on forever. I asked on here once and someone said Kris Markovich said in an interview red tops are unlucky. Everyone hating on yellow tops needs to stop hurting my feelings.

With the Bic colors I've known a lot of people that do that. Everyone has weird superstitions, I knew a guy who was probably autistic, he would have to switch his laces out. He'd take the left lace and transfer it to the right shoe and take right lace and put it in the left shoe.

I remember ordering a deck once online and it said ďstain color may varyĒ. When I opened up the package it was a red top and I just thought, ďI hope the superstition isnít true.Ē I gripped it in a brick pattern so the red popped through the black rectangles of grip, looked really dope. It was a great deck and I learned a lot on it. Ever since then I donít have a preference now. Itís like the lighter thing, itís all in your head. For me personally, I still get people have their own thoughts, feelings, and superstitions and respect it. It just doesnít make a difference to me anymore. Itís easier that way :)
