    Default Emerald City Skate decks arriving soon

    This is a two part launch announcement and question.

    I started a small skateboard company with the hopes of promoting our local skaters and making decks for them to ride. I am in the process of setting up the first run of decks and wanted to get some thoughts from you guys on the first designs.


    Emerald City Skate is located in Gig Harbor WA.
    We plan to remain small and focus on getting locals from all over recognized.



    Part 2:
    I just got my sample decks and am in the process of ordering the first run but wanted to get an idea of what sizes people prefer these days?
    I ride a 8.25 and that seems to be about the most common one I have found.
    What would you say is the three sizes to start with if you had to choose?
    8.0, 8.25 and 8.5?

    Also, mellow concave or steep concave?


    Here are the three decks I am having printed. What do you think? If you don't like one or all let me know. Please!

    any relationship that matters - a friendship, a family, a romance, a band - anything - is a perilous and fragile thing because along with all the amazing experiences and creations that can come from something so intimate and exhausting comes the possibility for things to crumble and shatter or whither and die. when that happens, it's easy to forget what was precious amidst all the disaster. we should always carry our history with us but never let it bury us.

    House Band at The Broadway Bar and Grill in Dallas was called "Emerald City". Now there's a new club two blocks from my house called "Emerald City". Really surprised it wasn't already trademarked by another skate gear company.

    I believe you are thinking about Bristol. "Bristol Cities" is Cockney Rhyming Slang for titties. As in, "She threw up her Uncle Bert and showed me her Bristols!"

    I'm trying to be more Zen. What is the sound of me not giving a fuck?

    I work at a company called Emerald City Gymnastics, pretty crazy.

    I, for one, skate 8.5, and I'm a huge fan of simplistic design
