Size and Shape
The size and shape of the Toy Machine Skateboards 2016 Toy Machine No Scooter Skateboard Deck is 8 x 31.75, which is the board size I’ve been riding a lot. My shoe size is 12, so I like the width of this option, as it allows for easier catches on the flips. I also like it as an everyday board to ride through town. You can easily ollie curbs, hit kickflips off of jumpers, and of course, the classic heelflip. This is a great shape, 8 x 31.75 is solid. The shape is the standard Toy Machine option, with 7-ply North American maple being the layers.
As mentioned above, the graphic design of the Toy Machine Skateboards 2016 Toy Machine No Scooter Skateboard Deck is of the iconic Templeton style monster, only this time he’s riding a scooter and it’s crossed out. Skateboarders and scooters don’t always get along, and well, here you go, a graphic that says it. Of course this is going to rub right off, but hey, as long as you got the image, why not showcase your disdain for all those scooter riders right? Good overall graphic design.
Overall Board Feel
The board feels good, nice overall size, medium pop and little to no concave. The standard Toy Machine skateboard style if you ask me. The brand has some innovative updates, but their traditional wood, especially in their 2016 line is exactly as you’d expect from the late 1990s. That doesn’t mean that it’s bad in any way, but you should know what you’re getting into with this. The board feels great, easy to flip, light, and strong as you’d expect.
