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

Maxallure advertises some of their boards as being flat concave, from pgi. Dunno if anyone has had one of these, not super looking forward to being the oldest guy with one of these, buuuuuuut who am I kidding? I skate solo flatground missions. It cannot be as bad as when I had an April board

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 talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.
