    Here's a Bonus Post on a deck I was excited to find, a Woodcarver!

    Back in the day, a Rep stopped by our skate shop, selling boards by a company named Woodcarver. The board was basically a wood copy of the Z-flex Jay Adams deck, with some minor changes (such as a pointier nose & rounded tail). The boards were well made, with nice wheelwells. We bought 5-6 of them to see how they'd sell. They sold well, being pretty durable & with a nice overall shape & design.

    When we went to re-order more, we couldn't contact the Rep or the company. Like many brands of the 70's that came & went very quickly, we assumed they had closed up shop. Over the years, I've told a lot of other skaters & collectors about this brand & board, but nobody else had ever heard of them.

    40 years go by & I see a For Sale ad on Skull & Bones. A very generic "Decks For Sale" listing. I decided to take a look. Most everything were more modern popsicles, but then here was this Woodcarver deck I'd talked about for years! I contacted the seller to see what he knew about it, which turned out to be absolutely nothing. He thought he had bought it at a garage sale or something. I made him an offer & purchased the deck. Finally I had my "mystery deck" from the 70's! I held it up to a Z-Flex Adams deck & sure enough, the shape was almost identical. My old memory of this deck was dead-on.

    Here's my NOS 30" x 8" Woodcarver deck. Hope you dig it.

    For Week #122, we'll re-visit an old favorite from one of the best-known brands of the past & now, Santa Cruz!

    Board #140 is a 31" Santa Cruz 5 Ply deck. This one is equipped with ACS 580's & Tunnel Super Rocks.

    I wasn't really into these decks initially back in the day, but I always dug their multi-color graphics. However, after Henry Hester gave me a couple of these longer versions after I helped him recover his personal park & slalom Santa Cruz decks from a car break-in, I found they were nice riders.

    Having 27" & 29" versions, which I've shared in earlier weeks, I've been trying to find the longer 31" version & finally did. Enjoy!

    To answer a question from a couple members, yes, the Super Rocks were the later follow-on to the Tunnel Rocks. They came out later.
