Good quality, but the concave was to low
of Herman, Blue Tomato Shop Oslo, Blue Tomato, 5 Sep 2022
After skating on this board for about a month, I can tell you that i have mixed feelings about it. I have skated Real skateboards a lot growing up since I wanted to try it once more. I also went up a size. I usually skate 8.25 decks but this deck is a tiny bit bigger.
After picking out my deck and setting it up, I immediately noticed that the concave was pretty low compared to other real decks I have skated in the past. This is because real skateboards are usually not single deck pressed, which means the concave and kicks are not consistant with every deck. I realized that I got one that had a low concave and low kick which threw my skating off. I had to adjust the way I popped my tricks and it felt weird at first, but I got used to it pretty fast. I really enjoyed going up a size though and will continue skating 8.38s.
On every real deck there is an indicator above the front bolts of a Roman numeral 1 to V (5) which means where it was located on the deck press. 1 being the most concave and V being the lowest concave. I got the V deck. So, if you specifically want to choose what concave you want would I recommend rather going with a company like Madness skateboards which is single deck press and more consistent with what you're looking for.
