I have a new Polar P2 and a new DOA Flat as fuck, and the P2 tail is a little more mellow. Kind of surprised me.

This is one I had been sitting on for a long time, a very mellow DLX 8.38 Real, when compared to my usual DLX 8.38 IV board.  I hadn't wanted to set it up thinking it was going to be too flat, but finally thought I would give it a go and see.

It sure is way flatter than anything else and although a little too flat for transition, it is ok for street stuff.  It also feels smaller overall, but there are no differences in dimensions from the other 8.38 boards I usually ride.


Probably still not as flat as some, but it is interesting for comparisons.







I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Those are not considered mellow to me.

These are what I consider mellow

Og Girl Sheffey. Pretty flat. Exact flat as tar heel and tae re issue. Those reissues must be the most accurate reissues ever.

Board looks so good.
I’d love an 8 with this shape. As much as I worshipped 7.5s they are a little too much for me now. A good 7.75 is still a go. Aaaaanyways.

Haven’t had a real good truly flat board in a long while. Had a few hi-teks and those were decently flat.

Iirc they just used the original molds. PS has a room full of like hundreds of molds which is why he went to the serial # system, shit was too hard to keep track of. If you watch enough bts factory tour vids you'll see it/hear him talk about it eventually.

I have a Tae and I love just blasting ollies on it but it feels like I'm skating a ski for the first few minutes. 7.5 with old sz 12 feet is not a great match.

@nosneb maybe I'll dig out the pop secret prototype and show everyone what "mellow" looks like haha... Pretty sure I still have it somewhere. That's the only board I've ever thought was too flat, I just could not flip it until I put heavy ass old indy standards on it.

I didn't mind riding 7.5. I wear size 13. It is just hard to keep finding nice 7.5s.

I liked it cause hardly and wheel bite. My toe or heel would hit first before wheel bite hit. Lol

Thanks for posting some of those old boards.

It actually reminds me of a 90s Real 8.5 board that I should dig out and take pics of too.

That thing was completely flat, or at least felt like it, but it has nothing on anything else I have, even from the 92 or so Firm boards, which felt almost as flat as the Blind banana skull reissue from a while back.

I was going to get out those boards, but it has been rainy here and I know not to get out old wood with such humidity.

Sorry, will try better next time.

Thank You decks (some of them) are quite mellow in both kicks and wings, but some are not at all. Inspect in person at a shop if possible or order from somewhere that takes glamour shots of the concave.

And this is where…like I’m not going to mail order and take a chance on a thank you board.
And the shops that are good near me, are probably not (definitely not) going to have a thank you board.
But now I’m tempted.
Concave preferences are the worst, because you have to see em in person.
Unfortunately it seems like the vast majority of consumers want bbs boards, so that is all that is at the shop. (TBC I don’t blame the shops: people want boards that are gonna last a month and half, and for a board to be able to go the distance, it’s going to need some bends).

Thanks for all ideas.
Totally not going to go look at thank you skateboards ig now

Damn.
It is undeniable that ps really fucks up some boards, like a significant amount.
But I just cannot quit them. Their concave, and shapes,  are the best.
I’ve tried to look up which toy machine boards are ps (couldn’t tell), or track down some more ps mellow stuff, hard to find that info online.

I have never skated an hlc board, but they sound like what I’m looking for

Lured back to this place after hearing about the demise of DOA. I am currently skating a clutch blank that is weirdly flat, really enjoying it as best I can coming off an ankle injury. I was at a shop last week looking at Sour boards (HLC) and was reminded that they're decently flat and also pointy which is a big deal for me. Thinking one of those might be next.

I know PS Pressed Toy Machine boards been mentioned here, but Fletch once sent me a couple (lightly skated) ones in a trade and told me that they're the closest thing to E-mold.

I don’t skate. But I might buy some skate stuff because I’m back to lurking. Terrible.
Any idea on how to find out which Toy Machine boards are PS? There’s no way the local shops carry that, so I’d be flying blind on the order. A bad toy machine doesn’t sound fun. I’ve had some of their boards in the past and tbh really enjoyed the flat/pointy, and the wood was decent. This is like 12 ish years ago but still.

The hlc boards are the ones that have my interest the most

Glad the ankle is recovering

No idea. My understanding was that the pro boards were PS and that it was the logos that are iffy...but I haven't been keeping up. Of the boards from Fletch, one was a Jeremy Leberes IIRC. This was about 2 years ago.

The Sour HLC boards are a lot better looking than Toy and (last time I tried) I preferred the wood. I had an 8.5" and it was pretty mellow, and the smaller 8.125 I saw at the shop looked and felt even more so. It could have also been a fluke, but I think at least one of their shapes (S1?) is intentionally mellow.

I do have a stack right now (to include a P2 and DOA flat) but once I go throuh it I am done ordering decks…I’ll just sort through the local for something mellow. Tired of wasting me money gambling with getting a steep deck or a mellow version.

This is a good plan, and I love the local shops, but board manufacturing is so homogenized.

Yeah nacho I think hlc is my next, mellow and pointy is my fave
