    Hi, I am doing some research on you're blank decks. I heard from someone a while back that some blank decks are made from the same company as pro decks. Do the decks on you're site come from the same pro distribution centers? If so... then what decks come from what pro distribution centers? Thank you for you're time.

    They replied with this...

    We're not allowed to disclose that kind of information. Our decks are however pro quality proffesionally made decks. ;-)

    id rather pay an extra 20-30$ for something i KNOW is gonna be good than take a gamble on blank decks. i know there are good ones out there but you can never be sure as to where they came from or why they were never printed.

    Trebor, I completely agree with you're statement. The extra money in my eyes is kind of like a insurgence policy.

    Blank boards IMO are very boring . Also , they have a better chance of breaking since you dont know who made it , or what company .

    **** blanks, those things are the worst. Sure, they may be a bit cheaper, but shop decks are cheaper as well. If you're on a budget, go support your local shop and buy one of their boards.

    Why don't any companies make decks that show any bare wood? At least incorporate it into a design.

    I've had good times with blanks. I guess I just get lucky? I don't so much street so that could be it. After shipping and all, most shop blanks come to around the same price and they usually don't use crap blanks cuz they want you to keep going to them. Some chain stores like vans have good sells from time to time. I got an almost impact deck for $40 at a vans shop. My local sells their crap cheap too. I just live in a blessed area I suppose.

    I buy from blankdecks.com all the time, and their boards lasted me longer than both my plan b and my enjoi. F**k people that hate on blank decks, it's better than blowing $60 on an Element piece of s**t.

    Yup. $18 for a blank, $40 for a lap dance, then $2 to buy a towel to wipe away your self regret. I do it a lot.

    i dont mind spending upwards of 50$ on a deck that i know i'll have good times on. i can afford it and it makes me pretty happy. i see the price of skate stuff as a fair trade off for the fun it gives me.
