I had a moment of weakness seeing the discounted Kaliber Wild Africa Affe38″ (96cm) deck at SkateDeluxe (great service and online shop – German retailer, but no issue and shipping for the UK). I have been after another drop-through since my older son appropriated my original Atom 41 Green. Loved the dark wood on it and the distinctive shape. Not sure on the trucks and wheels for it, will get it and see what the flex is like before ordering some.
I am always on the lookout for interesting and stunning boards, given my preference for the simpler minimum graphics natural wood look (hey I have got older!). Spotted Canadian Zenit Boards, of Montreal, and their lovely natural decks, including a stunning cherry and carbon-fibre cruiser, the AB.
UPDATE: I liked the AB so much I bought one… 🙂 deck on order.
Another stunning European made natural-wood deck, this time from Icone (www.icone.at) in Austria. For my own non-aggressive posing, cruising and carving, the 38″ drop-through Ion looks spot on, even with an alternative leopard print (but I would go with the natural).
