Size and Shape
In the case of this Toy Machine Skateboards 2016 Vice Mold Dead Vice Monster Skateboard Deck, you’re going to find that the size and shape is 8.25 x 32.5. The length bugged me at first, but you know what, it’s not that noticeable when you’re bombing a hill. I launched myself down a set of 3 stairs, and managed to catch the board square, without breaking it. I’m not a light guy, and when I land off of large obstacles, I hit the board with everything I have. Part of it is just to not fall, and the other is because I’m determined to still skate in my 30s. The size is good, pop is nice, the shape seems like it’s older, but the vice mold is evident, no doubt.
The graphic design style of 2016 Toy Machine skateboards are cartoony. I don’t know if they put out anything that isn’t a cartoon. Whatever the case is, you’re going to get that classic looking monster, with a black and white feel, and natural grain background. It’s like the red and yellow decks that Toy Machine skateboards keeps putting out, but with a little update. I think it looks cool overall.
Overall Board Feel
When testing the latest Toy Machine Skateboards 2016 Vice Mold Dead Vice Monster Skateboard Deck, I found that it’s solid. I like the added .25 inches and the extra length at the ends. I was able to flip it nicely, but found that my foot wanted to move forward a bit more than usual. Maybe it’s the extra width, or maybe it’s because I was testing a lot of boards, and was getting tired. I did notice that my heelflips were easier with this deck so take that for what it is worth.
