A Day With 5Boro NYC Video - East Coast Skateboarding

An oldie but goodie, 5boro nyc is featured in this clip from Transworld Skateboard Magazine. I've been a big fan of 5boro nyc. I'm in the midwest these days, so I lean towards east coast skateboarding companies and smaller companies at that. But ever since I was in Seattle, I loved the work these guys were doing. If you're going to support a company, why not 5Boro? Seriously.

Here's one of their latest decks, and after the jump, check out a a day with 5Boro. After that, hit the streets and skate, it's warm out.

Element Skateboards San Francisco Giants For Life Deck Review

Element skateboards puts a spin on their San Francisco Giants skateboard deck in the same way that they put out their Dodgers series. This one has the San Fran logo and For Life emblazoned on the underside. As far as the size is concerned, it’s a slightly different mold, although it does have the 7 layer construction as usual. It has that classic Element pop and concave, and it’s sized at 8.0 x 32.0625. It’s nice for the wall, and it flips well overall.

I enjoyed testing this one out, and really pushed through a few spots that I have here in Indianapolis. This is a strong deck, but felt heavy at first. Once I started to flip it, it didn’t seem any different than the other one, except for the graphic. It’s a solid deck from Element, that’s for sure.

Element Skateboards San Francisco Giants Club Deck Review

Element skateboards once again does it, with limited edition San Francisco Giants skateboard decks. Much like the Dodgers edition, this features the unique Giants logo. The size is 8.25 x 32.25 and constructed with the classic 7-ply style. It’s a solid skateboard deck that has nice concave, and the familiar Element pop. I recall my first Element decks and I changed over from Zero because I thought the board had better pop. It’s a standard skateboard, with some strong pop and nice concave no doubt.

Testing this board, my weight was nice over it, and I found that there was a slight float to it when I tried kick flips. Not sure if that’s my wheels, or it’s my trucks, but it seemed easier to flip this board than it was the Dodgers board. Maybe I was just in a groove. This is another good release from Element, no doubt. I like the size, it’s versatile for sure.

5Boro Skateboards Cinco Barrios Decks – 5boro NYC

There are a lot action going on with 5boro. If you have been following the brand like me, you know that they are putting it down for NYC. I hope that I could one day start a brand that has as much classic art and design that 5boro has. I can only dream though, I don’t have any money, or a job aside from writing these stupid posts. Anyways, 5boro skateboards has a set of decks that I know you’re going to love, because I am in love with them. They feature La Virgen de Guadalupe in skate form, and Spanish language elements throughout.

5BORO Skateboards Cinco Barrios Decks

If you haven’t seen the 5boro nyc stuff at your local skate shop, then you should consider going online and picking them up before they are gone. I for one plan on picking up all 3 of these, as I’m Mexican and I love the classic design that is on these. 5boro is one of my favorite companies for this reason. They just seem to put out classic artwork on their decks, and well, the pop is good.

5Boro Akers Dirt Bike Deck 8.5 x 32 Review

5Boro is coming out swinging with their latest skateboard decks, and this one showcases one of the best options they have. This is the Willy Akers pro model, and it features a dirt bike, with classic 1980s throwback colors. Now, if you’re a fan of the NES game Excitebike, then you already know what I’m thinking. As far as the 5boro skateboards decks are concerned, they have quality pop.

This one is 8.5 x 32 and isn’t too heavy, but has some nice concave. I was able to kick it nicely, and can testify to the strength of the build. I liked the colorway, and the 5boro team decks never let me down. I previously featured some decks from 5boro nyc in the past, and stand by the fact that they are really good at what they’re doing out of NYC.

Overall, this colorway is not half bad, and it’s a little different than what other companies are putting out right now in skateboarding. You can definitely see the quality that goes into the 5boro line up, and this is just one of the many solutions they are putting out right now.

Overall Rating: 8 out of 10

5Boro McDonald Snowmobile Deck 8.125 x 32 Review

Alright, for those that like to split hairs, you’re going to like the subtle change that comes with this 5boro board. As far as 5boro skateboards are concerned, this is another instant classic in their motor series. I really appreciated the colorway difference between this one and Akers dirt bike option. This is more colorful and once again goes back to the 1980’s style, even though it says 1996 on the colors.

The deck is made of 7 ply hardwood, and is quite good overall. Again, the concave and pop are good overall, and you’ll have no problem flipping this. I like the slight length difference between 8.5 and 8.125, giving you just enough clearance to land some sketchy kickflips and what not.

Overall, the 5boro McDonald Snowmobile is not half bad. It’s a nice deck in the series, and has a good overall pop. I actually prefer this option to the larger set, as this is somewhere between my normal size and a vert cruiser for me. Although, you may want a different option for what you’re doing. Either way, this is a quality deck.

Overall Rating: 8 out of 10

5boro skateboards has come out with a new edition of skateboards for summer, and they are kicking. One thing that I’ve appreciated about the board line up since I was younger is the attention to the core street style of the boards. 5boro nyc has been putting out a great deal of wood for some time, and despite other companies falling out of favor, these guys continue to shock me.

If you’re going to pick up skateboard decks, make sure that you take a look at 5boro skateboards. 5boro skateboards are high quality, and come out of one of the meccas of skateboarding today.

Element Skateboards Los Angeles Dodgers For Life Skateboard Deck Review

Element skateboards, as noted yesterday, has teamed up with the MLB for limited edition Dodgers skateboard decks. With this one, the size is 8.0 x 32.0625, and you know, it feels good. Testing this one out was fun, and the pop again was nice. The concave is classic element style, and the 7-ply construction made for a strong cushion when I dropped off my car hood. If you’re already a fan of Element, then you know the shape well. I liked the 8.0 as much as the 8.25.

The only major difference for this deck is that the graphic says “For Life” rather than just having the Los Angeles logo. The MSRP of this one is around 50 dollars, and it really is a good board if you want to put in on the wall. I don’t mind the shape, and at 8.0 it’s a step up from my old 7.75 line up. It’s a solid deck, no doubt, but it’s for those that are diehard fans of the Dodgers, so it takes off a few points.

Element Skateboards Los Angeles Dodgers Club Deck Review

So you love the Dodgers, and you love Los Angeles? Well, have I got a deck for you. This skateboard deck has just been released from Element Skateboards, and it features the licensing and logo of the Los Angeles Dodgers. I kid you not.

Element Skateboard decks are usually found at core skate shops, and the flagship Element stores that are found at different parts of the United States. With this release, however, it’s size 8.25 x 32.25, and is made of 7-ply construction. For me, this is a solid solution, as I have stopped using the old 7.75 widths because my feet kept slipping. For a wider board, this has good pop, and with the right grip, can definitely allow you to cruise with it.

The overall design is nice, and if you’re going to hang it up on the wall, you got a classic option to go with. However, as far as the Element Skateboards are concerned, you really have to be into baseball for it. I found that the Element brand produces high quality boards, and this is no doubt another good one. The full MSRP is around 50 bucks, but it’s worth it if you need a new board.

Adventures in Stereo: Atlanta With Jason Lee and Chris Pastras Video HD

Stereo Skateboards Took A Road Trip To Atlanta - Featuring Jason Lee and Chris Pastras
Jason Lee used to skateboard down the street from my school. I saw him skateboard before I even knew who he was. He would hit the Santa Monica Mall before it turned into an open air piece of yuppie garbage. You know, right where 3rd street met up with the mall, well there was a nice 3 step rail. Active Ride Shop now has a store near there, but I'll digress.

This is a cool road trip featuring Jason Lee and Chris Pastras as they venture through the world of Atlanta, in Stereo. You can pick up Stereo Skateboard decks by clicking here, and watch the video for inspiration.
