FA, Quasi, Alltimers - mainly to sell to the younger demographic of teens through dudes in their mid 20's

Santa Cruz, Primitive - basically for people who cruise through the shop but don't skate/peeps that will buy a complete once and thats it, but actual skaters will buy these from time to time as well

Krooked, Chocolate, Toy Machine, Baker - long-time board brands that everyone generally likes/will appreciate. also just seems right to have a little representation from each distro.

last brand would probably alternate between Western Edition, Isle, and Magenta more so for my personal taste

didn't think it would take that much thought trying to narrow it down to 10 brands sheesh

Damn, a few people throwing out alien boards in the mix. Kinda sick. They've always had really good shapes as well as a rich history in skateboarding that scratches the nostalgia itch. Graphix r pretty far out too in a good way. Hard to go wrong.

The Killing Floor

Prime wood/reissues

Santa Monica Airlines

Strangelove

That’s it. I want decks that I want to look at that look like a gallery display. Every other brand I would have to get individually vetted for how they would fit with the aesthetics, but TKF et al does not look like typical consumeristic product. I would just special order for my clientele or not give a shit. Fuck it. I’ll make the rent doing portrait photography and make more profit selling “street wear” apparel.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

while cool-guying is a real phenomenon, studies show that 83% of all cool-guying incidents can be attributed to the cool-guyee being an awkward weirdo

Great idea for a thread.

Here’s what I’d like to choose if I had a skate shop. Not all brands are my personal favorites but I wouldn’t have a problem selling any of these at my shop and I think these would mostly do fairly well. Listed in order of importance.

1. Antihero
Let’s face it, if you don’t have Antihero, you’re fucking up. Don’t really need Krooked or Real although Krooked especially would be nice.

2. Polar
Really popular in Finland and people like the shapes.

3. Hockey
For the cool kids. Don’t really need FA IMO. Skipping all the other “cool” brands ie. Palace, Quasi etc. cuz there’s only 10 brands.

4. Happy Hour
Legendary local Finnish brand you just have to have at your shop in Finland.

5. April
For the kids. And I’d rather skate April than Primitive.

6. Baker
Seems to be on the come up again with the kids over here and of course popular for a lot of people due to the longevity of the brand & nostalgia.

7. Toy Machine
For the people with 90s nostalgia & kids.

8. Heroin
For the eggheads & other older dudes who want all the cool shaped decks.

9. Black Label
For the old heads. I’d really like to see Black Label do well. Love John Lucero.

10. Worble
I’d like to see Worble do well.

Gotta say, surprised how often PassPort and Santa Cruz have been mentioned.

also, I wished I poised the question as if you were running a shop and could only stock 10 brands what would they be.

Gotta go with the brands who's demos I'd like to book/ see. I'm also in the hood so my brands are less hesh:

Primitive - All-star ledge and flatground line up. Put them on the street in front of your shop or with a box and you're good to go. Also multiculti vibe fits in my demographic.

Baker /Deathwish - Just enough hesh to bring in some suburban business yet something for the urban skater as well. Kader would get the crowd hyped.

April - Nugget and Rayssa at the demo? Instant crowd pleasers.

Real - Always consistent since 1990 with a bunch of ATV's to kill the hypothetical shitty skatepark that the city would give us. Some brothers on the team who all skate differently, including Ishod the God.

Limo - Shop is east coast so I'ma have to go with an EC brand. Max/ Cyrus are killing it and the brand give me an EE vibe.

FA - They still have Louie Lopez.

Sci-Fi - Depends if Jerry shows up at the demo, just for me to bow down to.

Hopps - Gotta support Jahmal

Isle - Tom Knox

Hardies or whatever it's gonna be called - TJ would light up a front-of-the-shop demo and would inspire the kids, families, etc.

antihero, krooked, real
fuck, marry, kill?

Fuck Real - the stable but bland one. Admit it. You’ve always wanted to hit it and have been eying her, so nows your chance. Sure. She’s not the most exciting girl but boy is she surprisingly pleasant. She ain’t too bad looking either. Nows your chance for this one night stand.

Marry krooked - she’s the artsy girl. A little off beat but quirky. Very solid and has her priorities straight. Definitely riding with her for years to come.

Kill Anti Hero - (even tho AH is what I ride from dlx) she’s the snuggle bandit with herpes that’s camping across the PNW and downing 12 packs. She gets down and makes friends real easy. Upon kissing her you’re greeted with the taste of cigarettes. Her car is covered in pigeon shit too. Sorry but somebody has to die

nothing's been the since same
