Can you ride Blind skateboards?
The Blind skateboards company makes decks, trucks, wheels and complete skateboard sets. You might suggest that “blind” people work for the company, but do not worry, the company’s workers have a good vision and a feel of style.
The Blind decks are good quality skateboards, produced according to several different technologies. The company manufactures different types of boards: a heavier 8-ply board, a little lighter 7-ply board, boards with a laminated core, and decks filled with Texalium (aluminum and epoxy glass). Blind’s graphics is very dark, groovy, violent, and fear-filled (with their little funny reaper). The images have more black and red colors. The company produces decks of different shapes, weight, and style. So, here you have a possibility to choose the one according to your style!
Blind skateboards have good cushion and this is an advantage when you are ollieing or dropping off high bases. The deck is also a little flexible. The grip tape doesn’t scrape like in the other skateboard decks and I really like it. That helps you not to make a hole in your shoe so quickly. The blind grip tape really works! As for the graphics, a Blind deck usually just has an image of something. I can’t say that their graphics aren’t creative, but I believe it is not the most important thing for a deck unlike the quality. And the Blind skateboards deck is a perfect quality item. Most decks of the company are thicker than the decks of other brands, so they don’t chip. You might think that that makes it difficult to do flip tricks with. Believe me, it does not. And finally, the shape! Well, it is fantastic! With lots of pockets, side concaves, which allow your feet to feel really comfortable when skating and gives you more control over the board.
I am not advertising here anything, but from my experience Blind is the most durable and comfortable desk of them all. Maybe it does not look so fancy like the other skateboards, but it will last you long enough to get best flips with it. This deck is worth its price!
