    Default Best Bowl/Park skating deck

    hey guys, I'm new here. Well actually I've been reading threads on here for quite a while but I decided I need to join.

    Anyway, lately Ive been skating a lot of bowl and park, and I need a new deck for it.
    im looking for something around 9.25 x 33 but im flexible on the sizing.
    I really want the deck to be a modern shape, but with a bit of oldschool flavor.

    If you can give me some suggestions that would be great!

    ah, Id like to stay under 10" side and I definitely need it to be at least 32" long.
    and I need double kicks as well. like I said, a new school deck but with some oldschool in there if you get what I mean.

    Looks good to me. Simple dye and graphics, but I'm gonna thrash it anyway. So far so good on standing up, I weigh 225#.

    Deckcrafters make excellent decks. I had a monococh one. They make customs as well.

    The Embassy, Gibson pool model has the newer perks with old style flavor. It's a real nice deck and looks like it's on sale on their site.

    Are pocket pistol decks good? I saw one today that is basically the most perfect shape/size I could imagine

    Also,
    The WarChief is a little bigger with a generous front foot stomp pad and a killer tail. I dig this one too. You can't go wrong with the boards you're checking out, all are quality. Have fun skating your ass off this summer, I am so far !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I've owned both, deckcrafters and 5 points decks....both are amazing board builders, newschool boards with an oldschool flavor...for me the 5points small (less than 9.5" wide) mold fit me better than the deckcrafter. I bought a stock Gravedigger that I skate street, curbs and rails with and a custom modern interpretation of a Roskopp Face that I skate park with. I haven't dealt with Chuck Hults directly though I hear he's great. Ihave dealt with Tim at 5points and it was pleasant experience....My next board will be a be a 5Points 9" SquareTailed Shovel
