We’ve all encounter ourselves standing on a skate shop or looking online for the perfect deck, however, we have all fallen sometimes for that one deck with the cool graphics that looks awesome but ends up broken in a matter of a couple of months!
It is very important to know the standard of quality you need to look out for since it will help you know exactly what you are going to need and know how much money needs to come out of your pocket for the SHIT you want to get!
So let’s get into it! from quality to style, we will be ching out the top 5 best skateboarding decks!
5. Moose Blank’s
One of the best options for you if you are just starting in skateboarding, its is a very affordable piece of equipment that provides you with the ‘grippyness’ necessary to give you improved stability which you will need when you are starting out!. The board measures 31 inches long and is made with the regular starter quality materials that will make it durable, the fact that is a blank solid color, will also give you the freedom to ger creative with it and perhaps do some sick DIY graphics to personalize it.
One thing to keep in mind is that the boards come in a set of 5, you cant buy just one, which in the long run, could be a benefit having one ready after the other is busted!
4. Bamboo Skateboards Green Fish deck
These guys give you the promise of quality and endurance, they have been experimenting for a while with boards made of both maple and bamboo, which makes their products unique in its kind.
The deck features a deeper concave, providing you additional control when riding and taking hard turns the deck also features a very lightweight, and its told that it could last for years, however it is not a favorite because of its odd shape.
3. Element Section Black 7.75
Element it’s known for its durability altho, skateboarding manufacturing has evolved over the years with new technologies, Element sticks to some of the most traditional construction methods that ensure the durability the decks are known for, the dimensions of the board 7.75” and a length of 31.25” make it the perfect choice for amateur and intermediate skaters, the item does not have many downfalls, except that the design might be a little too boring and the price a little too high!
2. Baker Brand Logo Deck-8.0 Black/White
A great option for all levels of skateboarding one of the best features about the board is that it gives you a good grip while skating, it also comes in 2 different colors, but this particular one only comes in one size, which could be a deal-breaker for those who are already used to a different one.
The deck has many positive reviews and its actually on the “Amazon choice” but the same as the Element, one thing that might turn you off is the price of the deck, which is far from being affordable if you’re on a budget!
