I’d like to gauge interest for a potential group buy.
The idea is to have a choice of 2 or 3 decks from landyachtz along with @bigben 's gorgeous enclosures which have been moulded especially for those decks and will fit like a glove. Enclosures will be optional.
I am open to suggestions as to which decks, but will start a poll with a selection I think may be popular.
Shipping will be from the UK so this may be something that is more interesting to EU based people, but I will also get prices for international shipping so you can make your decision as shipping from the UK is usually surprisingly reasonable.
I will be able to post prices and shipping costs once we have worked out if there is enough interest.
Please choose which deck(s) you would be interested in, please only vote if you intend to take part in the group buy
I guess we might need to make it a two part shipping GB? that way it would give you time to produce the enclosures for any decks you don’t currently have. Or we could hang onto the decks for a bit, wait for the enclosures to be ready and do one shipment to the buyers to cut down costs…
It’s funny to see the Evo making a comeback. Personally I don’t like the concave or the taper in the rear. They are better alternatives if you are looking for a wedged/dewedged deck similar to the Evo…
I have the 925 and its a rrally good board but if you try to make an enclosure for it it is pretty damn tricky
Also the board has some flex but just so much that it doesnt bother the enclosure atleast mine
I simply love my century 40, one of my most prized possessions…rollin on bennet vector/tracker rts trucks and 85mm defcon thane speedvent mangos and oust air 9 bearings…when you wanna roll far, these are awesome, but I avoid drop decks for electrics…
It’s simply an education problem, they are all skateboards, some are just long and people don’t get that…it’s all market hype really…and also I wish to add, gear is awesome and it pays to have the right gear for the job, but in the end, it’s the skater not the board that makes it do rad stuff, so gear matters, but style matters more, and I’m not talking about what color it is or how you hold it, I’m talking about how you shred it!
honestly for esk8 or at least for the majority of the community gear doesn’t matter that much (talking only skate hardware, ofc quality vesc’s etc matter) since this is still slow, relaxed and puts low stress on materials and wheels (most of us, yes there are expetions but the majority).
