Today I have decided to have a look to see what’s out there online in the case of old school bowl long boards. With all the new skate parks popping up in my area it’s time I get back into some skating and get myself a board I would enjoy carving these parks.
So the first place I have found is Pool King Skateboards that offer a range of long boards in up to 37″ long. The most impressive looking board is the Jeff Tatum 37″ Power Tool Deck and that will set you back around $65 US.
I also found that the boardshop.com offer the Pool King boards as completes for a few hundred bucks like this one: http://www.boardshop.com.au/servlet/the-4354/POOL-KING-RETRO–fdsh-/Detail
Another very nice board is the Alva STINGER 36″ model:
POOL KING STINGER LONGER 36″ SKATEBOARD DECK – $115
Boardshop.com also offer other pool long boards like old school classics from Dogtown skates including this complete DOGTOWN DEATH TO INVADERS LONGBOARD 37.5″and that will cost you in the high $200 + zone. You can customize the wheel and truck selection with everything from Tracker to Gullwing trucks to Kryptonics wheels, nice eh!
In the longboard section at boardshop.com here is a few more decks and boards worth considering:
DOGTOWN DEATH TO INVADERS LONGBOARD 37.5″ SKATEBOARD DECK – on special for $99.00
Stepping up the length a little then this board looks damn nice:
DREGS BURNT DIVISION 45.5″ B-L-1 LONGBOARD SKATEBOARD DECK – $145.00
This DREGS WATER DIVISION 39″ KIRRA PLUS LONGBOARD SKATEBOARD DECK – $129.00 should keep you happy if you would like a cool Californian style surf design.
Then I stumbled on the Earthwing boards which look amazing and have more area for your feet which I like. So far these look to be the most practical looking decks for riding bowls on a long board. Check out this one:
If you prefer your board on the slimmer side then there are a couple of 9″ wide models from G&S that look great like this one:
Still on the 9″ models, Gravity offer this amazing looking deck made with Californian bamboo and maple:
Another brand worth considering that is well known in today’s skateboard scene is Elements and they have an Element Travel Well Complete Longboard 9.75 x 44that you can pick up for $169.95 USD at proboardshop.com
