    is it just me or are board prices taking a hike now? for as long as i remember most uk/euro brands would be at £40 with american brands being £50, maybe £55/56 if it was that P2/double impact stuff but now it seems some uk ones (palace/heroin) have went up to £45/46 with the american brands being at £60+? import tax? brexit? i know heroins under bakerboys dist in the US now, are they pressing boards there and getting shipped back here or what?

    It's been happening for a while, I don't know the reasons why. Most U.S brands are going to hit £65 soon. I've heard some companies are trying to push their tees out at £40 to skate shops (I'm talking middle of the road brands here), no-one is paying £40 for some of these companies tees.

    Not sure if relevant or not
    Heroin boards were always (?) on US wood, they were pressed at Chapman wood in New York. I used to love it, but I can't get along with Baker wood, don't like how it feels under my feet.
    I like the look of these:

    damn thats pretty brutal, i've really been wanting to try some DLX stuff but I can't bring myself to do it when I can get two shop boards for basically the same price. I had a look at some of that Hotel Blue stuff to see what it was about, decks were £65 and some shitty blue cap with the tiniest stitching on the back saying Hotel Blue was £41. £40 for a tee thats likely to be a unlabled gildan/hanes tee with a screen print.

    for some reason i always had it in my mind they were pressed here! i'll probably just stick with shop decks, fabric, landscape or the occasional US deck on sale.

    I would love to see a list of all UK board companies and who they get there boards pressed by.
    I would get the ball rolling but I'm clueless.

    When a local (to me) and well-liked board company came into existence, they went to [REDACTED] to see about getting their boards pressed there, only to be told "We don't want to do any more bedroom companies".

    Ended up all sorted, but how the fuck do you go from a bedroom company to an actual company if [REDACTED] are going to be so snobby about it? It's not like their logo is on it. Former bedroom company is rad anyway, and have lots of good shit coming.

    Death use Lovenskate (A third foot) as much as they can, which you have to respect and Death are still in the right price bracket. I don't know for sure but it can't be the cheapest way to do it.

    I wish death kept making the dave allen 8.5 lydia board, probably the nicest feeling shape/boards I've had even if the wood didnt seem the best.

    Anyone wanna hazard a guess as to how much roughly itll cost to ship some trucks from the US up to here? My friends big on Pink Floyd and lurking instag lastnight I found this wheel collector who besides a shitton of wheels also has some 2009/2010 DSOTM esque Marc Johnson Thunders, bit skated but I figure I'd get them as a bday gift anyway since my mate would be stoked and probably put them on this sick DSOTM deck that has a fucking clock on it hung up on his wall.

    not 100% sure if he's selling or just collecting, or even if it's a full set as theres only one truck in his photo so i thought i'd try and get a rough ballpark figure of shipping + a sale price before i message him with an offer

    still plenty of time to go before my mates birthday anyway :P
