Neoclassic Powell skateboards
Old school boards, designs and graphics have made a big comeback into the skating world recently. If you are looking for true classic board, but cannot choose between Alva, Dogtown or Powell skateboards, than this post is written especially for you.
Powell skateboards have been among the best in the market since 1976. The company offers various models of skateboards: classic street decks, completes, etc. Recently, they have started to produce Golden Dragon completes, which have become extremely popular among skaters, because of their competitive price. This model is made in China, but assembled in the USA. Though made-in-China sign might scare the customers away, the Powell company make sure that these completes are of good quality, and the riders’ reviews support their statements.
You can get those memorable fish tailed and spoon shaped designs again, finished with the old graphics! In addition, these decks are not just made for nostalgia – they are made for serious skating. No matter if you’re an old skater diving back into the memories, or a new rider wishing to have a feel of the skating’s history, these classic Powell decks would be perfect for you.
This new model has the same design and old school graphics, but is built from layered 7 plys American maple. There are three classic spoon nose boards available for purchase now – the Steadham deck, the Vato Rat Bones deck, and the Caballero Chinese Dragon deck. All of them have a medium concave and the high tail with big pop. The decks aren’t heavy, either. I rode mine pretty fast. In addition, if you’re worried about damaging these boards, you can get those funny old plastic covers to protect them!
If you are not sure whether you are going to ride this kind of board, you can just get one and hang it on the wall to boast in front of your friends, or a better idea would be to give it as a present to your dad or uncle, if they might be interested. It’s really inspiring that Powell skateboards constructed these decks to look like the originals, but made them high quality with rider’s best interests in mind.
