The Top Ten

1
Plan B
Plan be is the best because plan be has a lot of pro skaters and not only just pros but one of the best skaters in the universe and plan be has better pop.
It is the best board ever! It has the best pop and durability. Element should not be first it should be third. But if your looking for style and pop and durability buy a plan b!
Way better then element
I hated my element they chip a lot
Element should be fifth I think because the do not last very long at all
[Newest]My favorite board I've ever had

2Element
ELEMENT is awesome it is the best board 4 grinding kickflips 360s element rocks I don't care what you think but its the best board ever!
My first board is an element but I have ride and other boards too and I notice the difference between all them! I surely prefer element at least now
Element in my opinion is by far the best brand out there the helium is unbelievable awesome awesome and once again awesome
[Newest]Element hands down is the best. I mainly skated element my whole life. But the past ten years I've been trying everything I never tried. I have to say element lasted way longer than any other bored I've skated and rarely chips and breaks early in the decks life..

3Zero
God! Zero's are awesome! They're better than element and plan b put together!
Zero's have sick graphics and awesome pop! But how the hell is element in front of Zero? I mean element is good but compared to zero? Forget it!
Zero are the best by far! Why is it not number 1 zero forever death to non believers
[Newest]I have a zero it's the best board I have ever owned I love it

4Girl
This brand should be on top best brands ever I don't know why it is ranked 11 sweetest graphics ever an best pop better then pro 2 boards don't have nearly as much pop than furl
Girl is the best. Why do you think they have all the great pros like Mike Mo, Mike Carrol, Sean Malto, Eric Koston, etc. Element sucks. I can ollie twice as high with girl than I can with element, birdhouse, blind, zero, and all other brands. You people have problems.
I've got an enjoi but gotta admit girl are kick ass
[Newest]Girl is my and all of my friend favorite and has a great Pop for flip tricks

5Baker
Baker is where its at I've got like 3 bakers and they're all the best boards. I've had flip, blind and zero none stand up 2 baker.
Best in the world matey got one for myself one of the best in the world can do kick flips and all sorts
Baker has so much pop its the best so if you bye one it will never brake
[Newest]I have a Baker and a Blind to be honest my Baker has more pop than my Blind and I'm a HUGE fan of Blind it's a good brand and all but sorry blind team I'm going with my Baker

6Almost
almost is amazing. I've had my board for a year and it hasnt chipped or anything. their graphics are amazing looking and the paint doesn't chip. almost rules!

I have lots of skatboarding gear and my favorite is almost

AWS have to be the best skateboards ever! Amazing concave, lightness, and pop make this board great for all tricks

8Enjoi
Pretty sick boards. The pop is fantastic and the boards are very durable. Very light and reliable. Enjoi is the way to go.
Enjois have epic pop I have the pen and ink board, I know it feels heavy but it still get better pop than any other board I've tried, plus it's extremely strong, not even a crack yet and I've had it for a year
I've had an enjoi board for about 2 years now and it is great, no more to be said
[Newest]I like enjoi because it got sick graphics
More comments about Enjoi

9Flip
I bought my flip 4 flat ground. The next day I landed a kick flip for my very first time. Enough said flip is a sick brand
I think the flip is the best because it is really good pop and it lands good. I've saw someone use it and it did really good flips and landings it should be first and element should be last.
Flip is better than element and zero it should be #1

[Newest]Best board should be first

10Blind
Sick graphics and strong board. Once my blind skateboard got run over by a car and its still in perfect shape
I just got my Blind Ransom deck about month ago and It's perfect. Blind has the best graphics of all time.
Blind rocks I have a blind bloody original and it rocks.

12Birdhouse
Birdhouse is the best and so is hawk... How could you not like the great quality and pop of the birdhouse brand board
I got a skate board just this month its awesome birdhouse has great pop and its an amazing board to learn tricks
Really good board and good durability and I personally would rate this board a lot higher than 10 come this is tony hawk's brand and tony hawks the best skater ever!
[Newest]Bird house sucks balls

13Darkstar
Dark star is amazing runs smoothly zero rocks too amazing and has great design and it should be up there and not down here it rocks
Darkstar is the best skateboard brand in my opinion, and it is going to stay that way for a very long time. Peace out my homies!
I just orderd a darkstar skatebaord the other day I think I made a good choice.
[Newest]I had a darkstar and the tail split, don't get darkstar

14Zoo York
Zoo york has a distinct way of shaping there board that makes it excel, I wouldn't ride anything else
So cool I have 22 and a half boards (one of them broke while I was grinding) I have 10 zoo york sk8 boards and they are the most lightest nice shoes
I love zoo york because it lastes long got great pop and neva breaks or chips
[Newest]Zoo york sucks it is the worst

15Toy Machine
toy machine is the best decks ever and they are rated the best decks ever but i dont understand why element is first becuase my friend had one and it broke in a month and he is 11

cheese

How the hell are toy machine boards20, there really good and should be in the top 12, anyways, world industry boards are crap they should be last

mcarzwashere

So strong and concave best I've had.. Graphix are cool too

anthonymcfadden

[Newest]Toy Machine is great. They have also sick graphics!

16Chocolate
Wo! I'm shocked to see this amazing brand at 19! What I've had santa cruz decks, powell decks, darkstar decks, etc... but my new chocolate deck is the best by far! Perfectly rounded POP! Long lasting and strong. yes the designs aren't the best but who cares. the shape and pop are the important bit. so overall! CHOCOLATE ARE NUMBER 1!
Choclate is the best but there skinnyer boards and ya element is horrible they chip easily and don't last long plus choclate has really good pop and is a nice ride best deck ever.
Chocolate is AMAZING! When I first got this board it was so fast it took me a few tries to get used to! Chocolate boards are amazing! Great pop, smooth wheels, great bearings, awesome board!

skatefan1

[Newest]Bring it to the top 5 at least

17Deathwish
Deathwish is the best! Has the best concave, pop, designs, theme and all! Bakerboys for the win!
deatwish makes so easy to land tricks they should be at the and elment really bad that most people say
Deathwish makes really nice boards. They've got sick design and a lot of pop and concave so it's easier to land tricks and they are also really durable and last a long time. DEATHWISH FOR THE WIN!
[Newest]Awesome shape, graphics and team. What more can you ask for? Same as baker but a little weirder which is awesome!

18Mystery
Its an awesome deck. I bought it a few months ago, and I tried a lot of tricks from a lot of gaps and stairs sets. and my board didn't chipped out once!

It will last me for many years to come :).

for everyone, I recommend you to buy this board, no matter if your a beginner or a pro.
Mystery is one of the newer brands, You cannot argue with the spectacular quality they give for such a new board! Their team is also super bad Ass! They are also owned by Zero, even though they are different its a great prestige
Mystery's r awesome Zeros are cool but I can't trust dem! And Darkstar and Elements are too heavy.. Mystery beats any board forget 12 its #1

MusicGalSyd3

[Newest]Mystery have got best shape and concave ever. They are my favourite boards

19Habitat
Amazing! Great pop and amazing concave. Last for a long time as long as you don't get the bamboo board. They have an earthy style like element, but with a better board quality. The only reason they are not #1 is because they aren't as well known. You cannot snap these boards! I have skated them for a couple of years because they are so good. BUY ELEMENT BOARDS! You wont regret it.
I just got my first Habitat on Friday and I already to teach my self to do a heel flip in 30 min
It is durable and watt better than any other skateboard brand out there. Nice and Sexy
[Newest]Best feeling ever when your skating these it's so calm and best wood never snaps

20Real
real is by far the best fliptrick board it may notbe good fer grinds but if you like fliiping real'
Awesome board I HAVE ONLY REAL AND IT NEVER BREAKS IT IS SO GOOD. ITS SO MUCH AWESOMENESS MORE THAN ANY OTHER BRAND IT SHOULD BE TOP OF THE LIST! SO FUN SO SKILL SO EPIC!
Real should be number one because, It's the best for flip tricks and nose and tail slides. Plus my real lasted me five months and I would skate it everyday ( unless it was raining).
[Newest]How is real at last place? Best decks ever!
