No concave….
« on: January 18, 2023, 08:25:13 AM »
So uhh now that DOA is done, what’s everyone doing for flat decks? I tried a baker mellow concave and liked it alright but, there something about the DOA…. Does anyone know of anything similar? Or maybe if politic or some other board company out of that woodshop uses that mold?

Idk what size you ride, but most girl decks, and most dwindle boards are flat as hell. haven’t had a toy machine in a few years, but last I skated them,  they were damn near straight lined across.
This has me cracking up, what exactly does Black Flag have to do with measuring your dick starting behind ya nuts?

Skateboarding is nothing but a game to find the right fits to appear like you're a proportional human being instead of a midget or a giant.

That disorder board sounds like the last plan b I rode, right down to the taper; was the joslin slice deck, super flat and short tailed.

It does look interesting but not my size and wheelbase is too short for me

Ps Stix has the best mellow molds in my opinion

Toy Machine Mellow is one of the flattest molds I've ever skated, or the one WKND uses for their CT is mellow but more of a spoony shape to the contours. If you can go to a shop and look through all the companies that use the quasi mold those can be pretty flat and mellow in the tail as well, but you have to find ones from the bottom of the stack. Some IV stamped dlx boards can be pretty mellow too, actually Fletch sent me one of those skate shop day boards and it's shockingly mellow for a bbs. If it weren't a 14.4 wb I'd go out and hunt for them in shop bargain bins.

Alternatively I have a few 8.25 flats left if that's what you skate.. or just wait for Politic to run some e molds and buy one of those.

I got a blind accidental death reissue slick that is flat. Oh and an Dog town Arron Murray reissue that is flat ad stupid wide (thank fuck I never ordered one as a kid from them mail order things in Thrasher I'd have been gutted).
IV DLX BBS boards are as flat as I can do.

WKND CT shape is perfect but made by PS so every one I tried sucked. One even had the truck holes mis-drilled. If BBS made this, it’d probably be the only deck I skated.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

If anyone can find me a flat-ass UNCUT deck, hit me up. I'll make a new mold out of it and make boards.

The plan b tail was stupid flat tho, it felt like there was no kick at all.

The disorder board, not sure I could roll a 6.25 tail and 7” nose.

I had a wholesaler do some decks for me. They were flat as shit. I hated them. A few people loved them. They came from control. It looks like they don't have them anymore as they're current offerings say made in the USA and not "North America"

maybe look at controls offerings, or email them to see whose getting flat ones

I had a board from their last woodshop but as a steep concave lover, their boards always look as flat as my buns. With mellow kicks.

Man people love to shit on PS, but last time I was in a shop there were 5 total decks I was interested in from BBS. Literally all spost to be the same shape:
- 2 of these decks had a noticeable twist/warp
- 1 had a weird glue defect where it looked like the sides of one of the rails were not glued. Like, the plys looked bare.
- 1 had the holes mis-drilled. If you put a truck over the holes, the frontmost bolt holes didn't line up with the plate holes and it would not be possible to attach a truck.

The final one is the one I got, which was a Frog that had had a heat transfer put over one of their deadstock boards that didn't sell. Insanely stiff for the first week or so.

Crail boards have steep kicks now, they really don’t provide the mellow experience I’m looking for but I do generally like skating them.

It's funny, PS gets hate yet Quasi gets love.

The last few boards I've ridden were powell (flight), Polar and a Welcome, all of which were not as flat as I wanted...Prior was two Deathwish boards and they were very very mellow.

Yeah, I also had a DGK Chinese deck recently that’s was really mellow. Not flat but definitely on the low side of the mellow end.

A lot of Quasi boards are actually BBS, including twins and other special runs, and they're the ones I've liked the best. I'm fine with either though, as long as the shape is good. Haven’t seen any that are unusually flat, however.

Yeah, I usually go off the Quasi site which states which is which, my Quasi twin, was, as you noted, BBS; it was very mellow tho.

My last non-twin quasi, was indeed PS tho...super stubby tail.

April was probably the flattest deck I have had recently.  Kind of similar to a Baker, but more full nose and tail.

Most Quasi boards are still PS. There are a few each drop that are BBS, but I don't think it's even 50/50 yet to be honest. They're pretty clear about which shop pressed each deck.

Ya Quasi had about 50/50 for a single drop when they added Dane Barker, but I think even his decks now are PS. Basically the only BBS they do are the twin tails and really short shapes.

Fuck…. Nevermind

Ben can sell me on a lot of things... but this deck was the worst I've ever skated on. My buddy had one. He gave it away after 2 sessions. Verry small tail.  Shortys is the flattest I've skated recently. Alien is pretty flat too but become pretty soggy fast. I hate the pointy tails on the Bakers. I'd skate another B2 again tho.

Yep! And the last time I spoke with Quasi, they said they would continue having boards made by both PS and BBS because there are people who love both woodshops. I think all of Gilbert's graphics are BBS now—at least for the last drop. A little something for everyone.

Here’s an 8.25 Daniel Lutheran “Insecurity” TM. It’s the flattest deck I have.



I kinda like PS Stix more. The decks have more flex to them, but they lack the durability of BBS wood. The TM I was riding started to razor tail faster than the Welcome BBS one I had prior to it.

So I’d buy them on sale.

For the two weeks (constant skating) PS boards are great, then...sogg out...BBS take a bit to get flexy/hit the sweet spot. Trade offs.
