Are the Darkstar skateboards dark?
Many people keep asking me recently about the Darkstar skatebords. So, I found some time to review the Darkstar deck. The company has started working as a wheel manufacturer, but has quickly evolved to become a 100% Skateboarding producer. It was founded in 1997. The company started out with a top “Master” urethane and progressed to the moving deck technology used today, with their”Armor Light” as the Newest Deck for 2006. The famous riders, who represent this brand are Chet Thomas, Paul Machnau, Gailea Momolu, Mike Hastie, PLG, Adam Dyet and Paul Trep.
So, are the Darkstar skateboards dark? Well, yes, they are. Actually, they are mostly black and white. The Darkstar decks usually have their manufacturer’s logo on them, which looks like an angry animal or a knight. But the graphics does not last long, and neither does the graphics of the other brand decks. The molds, which they use to make Darkstar boards, are Monster molds, what gives the board a steep concave and a pocket to place your foot. The nose and the tail are medium, but the nose is a little longer than the tail. It is sad, but I have to admit that Darkstar boards chip easily. The tail wears down fast. But there is also a good thing about the decks’ durability – they are impossible to break! I have not tried yet though, but many people say that. The pop of the Darkstar board is awesome. My board has experienced bad weather conditions and some really harsh bumps, but the pop is still really good. I have to mention as well, that the deck is really light and you can do ollies and flips easily. Last, but not the least, is the price. The Darkstar deck is not so expensive, so this makes it even more attractive. I would say that buying the Darkstar, you get good quality for little money.
Great shape, decreased weight, creative style, a really comfortable deck. It seems that the carbon composite idea is good when it comes to keeping a board pop and strength. So, give it a try! The brand deserves it!
