    What Skateboard Team do you belong on?

    Zero
    You ride along side Jamie Thomas. You tend to be better at grinding down a 20 stair handrail than doing a flip trick down one. You ride for a popular skate team which sports lots of skulls and gothic images on their stuff. Your on a good team and should be proud.

    You aren't going to find the answers to these questions on a messageboard or from any of your friends, the deck that you'll find to be the best will come from your personal experiences with them. Sometimes it'll take months before you find a board that will truly work for you. Just try different brands and designs. And don't be affraid to try a brand you aren't familiar with. And don't stick to buying only one brand through out your life unless you know it's one that truly works for you. Don't ever buy a deck just for the name and logo. Also don't be affraid to ask questions to the sales dude at your skateshop, they know alot more than you think and would be glad to help you out with this subject considering how most kids buy decks just out of brand interest.

    It's completly fine to ask question in this forum about it, but just keep what I said in mind.
    Yeah i agree

    people who make threads here are retarded. They should go to a shop and feel and stand on the boards they are thinking about buying. If they think they'll like it then maybe ask people there opinions on durability and thats it. Actually people may say zoo yorks aren't durable but I think they are very durable. Half my town is upsessed with Traffics but I hate them. It's all opinions and what you like for shape.

    most kids that start usually get an element bam board
    I don't know why but younger kids are ubsessed with him when personally i hate him. I really like my black label by the way and plan b they are great brands.

    yeah, i d k about any one else but i really like blank decks. they last kinda long their ok, well for me at least thats only my preference. thast all i ever skate with. i got an element once, it broke in 2 weeks, i also got a zero, and for me it also broke really fast, but for me the blanks lasted loooong. so thats all i get... ha

    yea, one thing about this though is that poor ppl....well middle class -ish...people dont have enough money to buy a new deck every couple months to experiment which ones are better....so me and others(ppl skating less than a year) and havent been through a lot of brands figure we'll come on this section of the site(deck section) to find out what the experienced ppl have to say...you see...i can never just be like...hey mom i need a new deck take me to the skateshop...no it doesnt work...she says..."you just got that board like 5 months ago"....meanwhile im thinking like fuck you what do you know....most people get dekcs every 2-3 months.....and im skating a fucked up chipped deck...thats ive had for like 5 months and she'll be like.."you broke it already"...acting all surprised when she rly has no idea how much of a beating the boards take....ive had 3 dekcs so far...krown(when i was a beginner..not a real board), zero, and another zero.....to me zeros take a while to chip...it took me like 5 months(as said b4) to chip my zero and my mom went ballistic.....zeros are great....excellent pop...but thats just me....tom e....i know you're definitely right about its all personal preference...but i think we should encourage experienced skaters to actually post what they think...instead of them posting what everyone else says.....anyways...yea..thx

    Usually kids that are thought to be poser are the ones that are very young and just start out. If beginner skaters are skating next to you and arent causing a disturbance they arent doing any harm. At least they're skating, we were noobs once too

    I always do that I think it's the best you can do when you buy a deck
    If you get an Enjoi you get to have a panda on your deck. Having a panda on your deck is the best thing that could ever happen to you.The panda on your deck will make all your wildest dreams come true.
    but the final question is....if you truly love the panda.

    If you do buy a Enjoi

    I love mine, they have lasted like 3 or 4 months. I like how you don't need to clean them alot to keep the wheels spinning, like once a month is what I do and they spin just fine.

    when I got my first real deck the guys at the shop I went to told me their favourite boards and good ones for newer skaters and It helped....but...when I started getting better I couldnt do anything on that board, so when I got my next one I didnt get that same thing! SEEEE LEARN FROM OLDER BOARDS!
