The name speaks for itself: slave skateboards
A really aggressive team of riders represents the Slave Skateboards Company. The label is owned by Ben Horton and is being supervised by Black Box Distribution. The company produces both skateboards and longboards of different types depending on what you need. The professional team includes the following skateboarders: John Allie, Matt Mumford, Anthony Schultz, Conhuir Lynn, Jon Goemann, and Pat Burke.
It is really hard to write this review, because I have mixed feeling for this manufacture. So, let me start with some good things first.
I have to tell you, that I did not buy this board myself; it was given to me as a gift for my 16th birthday. At first, I was really excited about the new board, but when I opened the box, I was disappointed by the ugliest graphics I have ever seen. Well, it was not really ugly – it was disgusting. I did not show up my disappointment and decided to try the deck out before complaining about its bad looks. And here the board surprised me!
The Slave skateboard deck’s performance is everything you can hope to get from a good half-professional deck. Classic shape, nice concave to keep you feet locked in, and an excellent pop – that is a fair compensation for their sick graphics. I tried the tricks and realized that the board is highly responsive. Besides, it is really light, so you can do ollies and flip-tricks easily.
Everything is fine with the Slave skateboard, except the graphics. Well, for me it is very important. Because if you look at the board and you like what you see you get inspiration and the feel is so different. Their graphics is just not for me. But, I can recommend the Slave skateboard to anyone who loves this kind of graphics, because the overall quality of the deck is good.
