blown away that the Marana is being sold for $100+ on their website.
I remember it being much less ten years ago

It's fucked. Pre covid infliation they were $80 or $83 max BEFORE any clearance/sales. Joslins were $80 when they launched in 2018.

All of their models went up at minimum $10 :(

I'm thankful I've stocked up (sales and non-sales) of Marana and Joslins over the years so I'm bummed for others barely wanting to try them now and risking $100 on them if they can't get their size on sale before committing to more pairs if they like them

I got myself regular indy pivot cups as I not too long ago decided to test out those rip tide pricy cups that were suppose to be awesome...Well they were ok but worn out badly in a couple of months, ripped them out completely with a fucking hole at the bottom.

Ordered some fake lottery pack Dunks from DHGate.com for 50 bucks to skate in.  Very curious to see if a) they show up, and if they do b) how they skate and hold up.  Anyone else here order cheap reps before and how did it go?

Ha, my buddy and I ordered some fake unc "dunks" off DHgate for 30 bucks each for our Cali trip 2 summers ago. They showed up smelling like a bag of middle fingers. They were fucked after about 15 minutes of skating and ended up just throwing them on a powerline because the "unc" colorway I ordered was just a repainted panda dunk underneath. You get what you pay for. Hopefully your experience will be better.

Haha damn, sorry to hear. Ill keep my expectations low, glad they were only 50.  I know theres some highly regarded sellers on there but Im not trying to spend $100+ on them.

why scared ?

both stickers seems to be the same as the ones on Tighbooth boards (made in China by Dwindle).
Is there something on the Mc Clung that says made somewhere else ?

On top Silvas board says made in China and McClung's made in Mexico + the holographic BBS sticker. I tired the Silvas one yesterday and it was ok but wood was way weaker than usual

I bought the DC's because I was needing a pair to skate, then I saw that Axion had shoes on their site for $20 so I had to take advantage of it. I'm set on shoes for like the next year and a half since I have a couple of pairs that I'm saving up for filming some clips I've been wanting to do for a while so I'll whip em out once I'm ready. I think Slap has contributed to my overspending on skate shit, oh well fucc it.

I follow them on insta and they posted they were having a $20 sale this past weekend. They had one a couple of months ago. Seems like they don't really sell that many shoes so they have these crazy sales every once in a while. Which is perfect for me because I think the shoes are really dope but I usually don't pay more than $50 for shoes, especially for a brand that had no direction or content.

Yeah, I saw a while back they had some sort of sale where they had 20 dollar shoes but I didn't think they would be doing it again. Seems like things arent going too well over at axion as their comments are flooded with negativity and they're selling previously requested shoes for 20 bucks

This is a great thread. Starts off like a time capsule, then nostalgic, and finally current.

For my birthday I bought a mystery deck from my local shop then told them to give it to the next kid who needs one.

They just posted the vid of surprising the kid and I throughly enjoyed hearing the surprise and stoke in their voice when the deck was handed to them.

      This pilot deck was too short on the wheelbase side for me.
