    I love my alien workshop deck. Perfect concave and there doesnt seem to be a difference between the nose and tail, unless that's what you want.

    Can't go wrong with a Girl/Chocolate. Also, just move up to an 8". You won't regret it.

    For 35-40 you can't really get a Girl/Chocolate deck, so my suggestions would be Blueprint, The Harmony, Death (any other english board manufacturer, really.)

    I'm currently riding a Blueprint, and i'm very happy with it.

    Get yourself a cheap deck to start out with. Girl/chocolate decks are cheap wood and crappy boards that are overly hyped imo.
    There's a like panel of Judges in skateboarding you know? the dudes who deem its cool then its cool-Marc Johnson

    Nowadays I just think its just what the biggest rail and who can do the most tricks. It's more like hammers hammers hammers on videos rather then pushing -Nate Jones

    Watchin videos I'd watch more about people how they did the trick then the trick they were doing-Nate Jones

    i haven't skated one to be exact im going off what i've been told from others.
    one of the guys i skate with all he used to skate was girls they kept breaking fast. then my bro had a brand new one and he broke it within like 3 days.
    I was told they use cheap china wood. Imo it makes sense though.

    Okay, so you've never actually skated one? Your opinion is still totally valid.

    I'm skating a Chocolate deck right now, and It's the best deck I've ever skated.

    My girl decks amazing
    yea its been 3 months and its getting a bit of a razor, few chips here and there but its a solid deck.

    Btw before you give a deck review, i encrouage you to ride that deck. Secondary Info can never be trusted. Your friends and brother could of got a bad deck, or they cant land bolts and they slam nose/tail and body.
