The Top Ten

Team and pop. Buy an plan b!
Sickest board out there just look at there team
I bought an 8" Danny Way signature deck yesterday at our local skateshop.
Plan be.
The board is made out of durable plywood.
It pops amazingly.
I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
I've tried Chocolate and Element, but they don't compete.
Hands down, the best board I have had. It's light and flexible, but don't go bending it!
Plan B is the best hands down! Though Alien Workshop is second!


[Newest]I like plan b because it got a lot of pop and when I jump I remember about paul Rodriguez. because his pop high and like Ryan Sheckler and pud will to thanks...

Good Pop, Flip, spin. One of the best decks I have Ever Gotten... I have had it for Over A Year and still hasn't Snapped and has barely even chipped! I Am Into Skating A Lot And I Skate about 2-4 Hours A Day! Zero Will ALways Be The Best Board Company EVER!
Zero have a very good pop quality. Their decks contain special technologies such as the shallow grave which helps riders pop the board well. The new technology p2 technology which is going to be featured in the new board breeds, gives the boards even HIGHER pops and a stronger designs. This technology also gives the rider a good feel to the board. I recommend it to new and advanced skaters.
I can ollie so high, mark my words zero is the BEST. Also why is element on this list especially before zero, zero rocks element sucks


ZERO is where it at I jumped a 14 flight of stairs and didn't even crack and it was 2 years old! I also did a kickflip off a rail and landed perfect ZERO is the best

I've Been riding for over twenty years and It's all I ride. I've tested many other brands and can only vouch for A-Workshop, Zero, Enjoi and Habitat but for me, Girl is where its at hands down.
Well, since REAL isn't on the list, I guess girl would be second. They're putting full effort into their boards, and no dumb gimmick nonsense junk. SO here is how it goes; 1. REAL 2. GIRL. Trust me, they are the best, just give them a chance, and they will blow your mind!
How is girl 5th I've had 7 girl boards they don't snap I did a 17 set it didn't break another good thing is they don't chip easy I smashed my nose when in nose sliding rails all the time they don't skaters girl is the way to go
They definitely the hardest board and flick higher

Element gots great pop. If you practice your ollies on an element then practice on another board you'll see a big difference that element has better pop then all the other boards
Best decks ever! I've been using the same deck for over 2 years now! The more I use it, the better it gets! Highest quality decks with the most pop by far!
Element are th best, like honestly if you want a good board then to for an element. They've been in the skateboarding industry for years. They don't snap they are really a good kick arse boards. They have amazing pop and amazing features such as featherlight it's just amazing.
ITS GOOD... laugh out loud
More comments about ELEMENT

Why is Almost at 7th? My first Almost Impact board lasted me over 6 months when usually boards last me 2 months! I seriously don't get why World Industries is above Almost. Almost makes great designs like the impact and double impact models and they both have incredible pop. Almost also has some of the best street skaters on their team like Cooper Wilt, Daewon Song, Chris Haslam, and last but not least, the god of all street skateboarding RODNEY MULLEN! Almost should be at the top. I've been skating Almost for years now and they're my favorite. I've skated Element, Birdhouse, Zero, Plan B and none of them compare to Almost.
Almost has the best Skateboards ever I learned how to do 360 flips on a double impact and hard flip also hospital flips no other skateboards don't stand a chance and this list sucks I'll make a better list than this 1. Almost 2. Girl 3. Sk8mafia 4. Real 5. Mystery 6. Toy Machine 7. Chocolate 8. Death Wish 9. DGK 10. Zoo York. I have a feeling the people who rate most of these decks can't even do a kick flip or just started a week ago so now I will give you a list of the worst decks 1. Blind 2. Bird House 3. Zero 4. World Industries 5. Element 6. Enjoi 7. Alien Workshop 8. Dark Star 9. Black Label 10. Plan B why is Plan B on top they have really bad boards and the only skater I like on Plan B is PJ Ladd.
I agree zero is good but what is element doing there. almost has good pop but not element they suck
Almost is the best and mostly the double impact are dope lasted me 9 months for the deck to snap I recomend you buy almost double impact or just an impact deck it can't compare with plan b plan b sucks the first plan b I bought snaped in a month buy almost skateboards

Baker is insane there decks are amazing, I don't think any other could stand reynolds landing on it after 18 stairs over and over again.
They don't snap easy, my friend has one and he has had it for 3 years not 1 crack
My friend has a baker deck he is sponsored for Emerica no lie if you go on the site you wont see him because its only temporary but in the next new site which their making right now youll see him he has a baker deck and ollies really high and its easy for him to do double kicks so next time I buy a board I'm getin baker


Epic! Best Decks ever!
More comments about BAKER

I like plan B and zero and birdhouse all about the same. The reason I voted for birdhouse was because it was the lowest of the three, and because my brother has had this birdhouse board for years, it still skates like it is brand new. The pop remains even today.
I'm Haziq Emieril... I'm a skateboarder.. I use this skateboard for 2 years.. I've love it... Because it has better pop then other decks... The skateboard graphics is sick too.. ! It's light... I guarantee you will like it... It wont break... Unless you want to break it... So, I think Birdhouse is the best... Buy Birdhouse Deck! They're Awesome!
Bird house is a great brand some of the best skaters ride for birdhouse. They do have low concave which some people perfer but still a great board for when you are just new to skateboarding... but if you are an advanced skater I would not reccomend them because although the pop lasts it still is very mellow so yeah

Reals are beast I have skated plan b p2s, girls, chocolates, toy machinnes and some other brands and reals are hands down the best boards around they have weird shapes but insane pop and amazing durability I skated mine for 8months and it didn't even get a chip they also don't razor tail there great!
Real is AWESOME they have awesome pop and quicker pop also epic flip and how is birdhouse at the top that's stupid not one team can beat real lowpro
Innovative and built to last; and not tied down to the California posers.
Really decent boards, crispy pop that lasts for long, by all means get your hands on one
More comments about Real

Chocolate should be with girl like this (girl/chocolate) because they are the same brand well they are great my board is so heavy cause my ventures but its still a great brand just if you don't know chocolate girl and antihero are all like the same brands but chocolate makes EPIC wheels so thumbs UP!
The reason why chocolate is awesome... Kenny Anderson! I've had 4 chocolate deck now and they pop very high, just get a chocolate deck! who doesn't loves a fresh nice chocolate bar?
I have no idea why element is on this list, but I have just recently gone from a chocolate deck to a flip P2 deck, worst mistake ever, don't get me wrong I love the carbon sturdiness and the solid flip decks, but nothing will ever compare to my chocolate.
I like this brand board I also skate in this board I also like the desighns

10Alien Workshop
First alien workshop I got was from this dude in a van. I was skating at a spot where's there's just legdes. (sorry for grammar mistakes). He was a sponsor for monster. When he gave me the board it was a street league deck. Rob dyrdek. One of his signature boards. I got it like 6 months ago. It has good pop. I landed a lot of cool tricks on it. I still have it that's one of my boards I want to keep. Alien workshops amazing. Again sorry my mistakes I made I'm in a special program for reading.
Alien workshop is the best ever it has amazing pop and it has a great skate team I recommend it to everybody rob dyrdek is amazing mikey taylor is too
Had an alien workshop, it snapped really easily, but it had amazing pop before that. Could do tricks that I could never do before. amazing
I have been riding an alien workshop for 11 years and it is the best board I've experienced in my whole entire life I've tried girl, chocolate, elemen, t toy machine, authentic, zero, plan b ( it's sucks), alien workshop has so much pop and it is sooo light it is the most craziest thing I've ever experienced. OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG

The Contenders

yeah its been a while since the last time I rode a board last board I bought was a flip and yeah they do have good pop I learned fakie tres whit a flip


Flip gives you the power of high ollies and flips


What! Flip needs to be at the top! Best pop even BEFORE p2!
More comments about FLIP

I am using a enjoi for the first time and there's no problem it should be in the top 5 I can land double flips and I couldn't with my element last year
I like enjoi a lot. If your looking for great pop buy a enjoi there great. And there not even that heavy like most decks. Only bad thing is that is chips kinda of easy. But that's okay if your a ametur. But if your good still buy enjoi but watch out for the chip
Love them ;)
They are the best and totally awesome
Get this one if your new to riding because they are good to learn on have decent pop and flip are alright for shuvits but are hard to do on an enjoi deck
Quality boards that skate very good.

13Toy Machine
Dude I'm skating one right now its got an amazing pop and its super light my previous board was a alien workshop its still in good condition and has great pop but its kinda heavy but yeah toy machines have great pop and are super light
Toy Machine makes good 7 ply skateboard decks. They don't offer much new technologies or anything in their decks - but their decks are good quality, and well made. A lot of their graphics feature cartoon monsters. The Toy Machine skateboarding team features riders like Billy Marks, Ed Templeton and Josh Harmony.
I absolutely love toy! They're not sell outs (plan b element) and they stick and can relate to the teen age and 20 year old skaters who aren't all into park skating and switch 360 hardflip nosegrinds. They are a real actual street brand
Toy machine are really good quality decks. I recently bought a toy machine and it's the best deck I've ever owned

14World Industries
I put mine up side down and jumped on it and it did not snap
World sucks I they can make good shoes but not good decks my 5 year old brother jumped on it and it cracked... Questions!?!?

15Santa Cruz
Are you lot mad? Santa Cruz's pop is HUGE. I have seen element (quite good actually), plan B, Habitat, Zoo York, Birhdouse, creature, blind, choclate: the LOT, none are better than Santa Cruz. TRUST ME. The wood and concave make it the BEST.
No. 1 Santa Cruz
No. 2 Element
No. 3 Flip
No. 4 Baker
No. 5 Girl
The best graphics and grip with the best pop, that is Santa Cruz. Are you people mad?!?! Santa cruz definitely has an awesome pop, it should be number 1 on this list
He is right. I got a santa cruz can due a sick ollie. Best board I've ever had. But would change the list just a bit.
[Newest]Best board I have ever had, I have had that board since this Christmas and didn't get one till last week. Incredible pop
More comments about Santa Cruz

DGK boards come with a lot of pop, and quite a bit of durability. The durability goes away fast, but if you are a technical skater as I am, you can throw some Bones wheels, and Bones Swiss Bearings, these things ride like a dream. My opinion, don't hate me please.
Dgk is the best decks ever. I've skate baker, deathwish, cliche, plan b, element and girl but dgk is the best. Just put some indies on your dgk some bones wheels and your in heaven. Go buy a Dgk DIRTY GHETTO KIDS
Great durability the concave is amazing. Ti have been skating it for a month and it has no chips some of the paint is still there but I skate everyday. I've skated plan b, superior, and girl and dgk has lasted me the longest. Get a dgk you won't regret it.
[Newest]Great pop concave and doesn't get razor tail it's worth your money.

Cliche Keystones have one of the best pops I've had, I've had 2 cliche keystones and both had the same good pop and concave, the board is good if you're going for height, I've ridden one in the rain already and it still has more pop than all my other boards, namely (Flip, almost, blueprint, LCS (Local) and positiv (First deck)
The only other board I would recommend would be Stereo, so my top 2 are 1. Cliche and 2. Stereo~
The pop is really great you should get yourself a cliche
They pop like hell they are the same like plan b but with slightly more pop especially the keystone version and I'm keval maharaj trust me they are super light and dope... Yeah
I just got a new cliche I'm a total beginner I just figured out how to do an ollie on it, yay!
More comments about Cliche

Krooked is best! Why don't other people like it? It is the same wood as Real and Anti Hero! Krooked boards have great pop, shape, and feel. I love Krooked. I ride a Krooked board right now. It will probably last me a long time. The best part is, the pop stays! It never goes away! When you pop your first ollie on a Krooked, it feels like there are springs attached to your tail! Krooked should be first. Or at leased third.
Best! The pop is out of this world

Bro, these decks are like about as good as zero's, without the gritty image. Both companies are made by the same dude, so basically skating a mystery is like skating a blank zero. They are just as light, has the same amount of pop, and both have similar concave. The only thing is that they tend to have boring graphics if they even put them on... But, basically, the two decks are the same.
Mystery p2 decks all day no razor tail great pop and great concave buy mystery p2 decks now!
Got a tom asta deck yesterday. It pops like crazy and the concave is the best I've skated in my whole life. Make the right move and by Mystery decks
[Newest]So I'm skating mystery now and has a great pop but I don't like the nose being longer than the tail

Deathwish has some sick ass pop. They have some sick designs, great pop, and they are durable. I have no clue how element is above Deathwish element sucks. Element breaks so fast and deathwish will last a lifetime.
First Barca Trip the deathwish went on, Hit some very big stuff board got battered around everywhere and not a single thing wrong for weeks after. Never even saw a pressure crack. Only deathwish or heroin boards to ride.
I use a death wish right now and it has been one of my best boards 1 plan b 2 habitat 3 deathwish 4 zero 5 dark star 6 enjoy 7 krooked and last element
[Newest]I got a death wish deck and its s good.

22Fifth Ave

I had a black label they were pretty good. But switch to the creature p2 I love the pop and they don't break easy last a long time. I had mine for a year and half and still skateing on the same board. You pay what you get.
Creature are totes killer, new P2 models have hella pop, well tough and fairly light too.

Black Label are rad too.

This is the best brand of decks amazing pop and shape and pretty strong creature is the way to go

I just ordered a blind rasta deck and it should be here today! But anyway, blind decks are amazing! They have concave so there's extra pop in the board. They are really durable because they put either carbon fiber or a special flexible but strong kind of glass which makes it really light. I strongly recommend you get these skateboards.
Dude Blinds Own there heaps flexible and dont snap , heaps good for board slides and good pop


Blind has incredible pop, I'm able to Ollie very high and the ride is very smooth as well. I recommend getting Blind, for beginners and experts.
Great boards for begginers, nice pop, durable, don't break. get a better board like Zero when your experts.

Habitat rocks! It is amazing. It has amazing pop and I have been riding it like forever. Get habitat, it never looses pop its awesome. Great concave too
ITs how much pop it has not how much you like it habitat is great board
ok seriously? best pop ever, you can ollie so high, and not only that but flips are so easy with habitat.
Habitat is my favorite deck.
It got awesome pop and never really loses it
Get a habitat

Great british board company, cheaper than most and certainly the most durable bar deathwish. Can't go wrong with heroin unless your scottish and hodling a needle.
Heroin are sweet decks, lightweight durable with tons of pop, and the best graphics
Double kickflip with ease

27Zoo York
It was the best board I ever had it was durable has awesome pop and it is normally the type of board I will get again 10/10 its also slick and looks cool. Also the deck normally is prone to give you respect.
super awesome and durible had one 2 years no snaps


Amzing pop with there decks. Super strong too. Doesn't chip easily and is very rigid.

Definitely one of the best decks I've ever had, a pop better than girl but with more concave and better shape, and they're pretty much indestructible
Great pop, best deck I've ever had. Support those small skater owned companies!
Great deck love the pop its a great all around board for pop rails and gaps

Sick team, cool designs
Great team, great deck.
Beauty deck with good team Andrew Shrock

Got a ATM today! Amazing pop, amazing concave, and amazing quality! 10/10, and it's cheaper then all those other big name brands! These decks are just as good as the new high tech skateboards!
I live I Oceanside CA and the ATM factory is next to the Recycling Center over by BRO BENNOS, I just found out! But back in the day I'd go to the factory off of coast highway chill and get everything cheaps I agree. But santa cruz are nice too. I won a Mountain Dew Santa cruz complete with indy trucks and hallowpoint bearing and I believe cruz wheels. ATM and SANTA CRUZ
The pop on these boards is unbelievable they are amazing and I will only ever buy these boards they are the bomb. They are way better then world industries

I have use this sibling deck. Its too hard for get cracks at this deck. This deck is most currently useful for me in gap. I want to support my local brand in malaysia.
Sibling Malaysia's brand are most last longer deck is hard to get crack.

32Expedition One
Been skating ten years, best board I've had next to girl/chocolate
Dudde yesterday I used my friends board I ollied five boards primo and he's fat and the board can hold him it can hold you

33Black Label
Let me tell you this one and only one time! Black Label is the best board I ever skated it has a lot of pop, strong wood and don't get chipped that easy. In fact, they have some of the best skaters in the team such as; Jason Adams, Shuriken Shannon, Chris Troy and more... What I'm trying to say is these riders would have never chosen to get sponsored by Black Label if it wasn't the best decks ever!

Don't base your opinion by what a pro can do. I have skated on all brands and I stick with creature, black label, and toy machine. Creature has the best durability, toy machine has massive pop, and black label just has a great feel under my feet and held up great to my tre flip down the 9 set at a local church

34Anti Hero
Just joking anti-hero's are just lame as the riders that use them.
How can anti hero possibly be worse than a no fear deck this list is for goons
Nice graphics, loud pop and very lasting

36Skate Mental
Skate mental has always had strong pop and nice concave. I don't like skating anything with any kind of inserts like double impact or fiber light. The only other good boards with that are heliums and they pressure crack so bad. I've been riding the sticker sponsor deck for a good 7 months now and my skate mental just got a pressure crack in it. If you like ledges and gaps then go for a hard solid wood board. Not that "60 day guarantee against breakage crap"
A well built strong board with a legit pop and a great kick flip. One of my first and favorite decks. Not well known, even though in my opinion it is just as great a deck as Girl.
I have a skate mental, I have had it for about 6 months and I put it through hell and it still shows great pop and very good flip
More comments about Skate Mental

37No Fear
Lool why is no fear even on this list? Don't even call this piece of sh*t a skateboard

People judge because they aren't like Element or enjoi but who cares? If you're a real skater ride what suits you! :) and trust me I tried a kryptonics board and it had more pop than my creature
What are you talking about I had one it snapped when I was riding on it
I'm keval maharaj and kryptonics skateboards have dope wheels

This is the best decks forever, cause it have light decks and iam pro of motion, if you try to pop, its different from other deck

For the first month or so it's really good. It's light sturdy and good pop but it does chip easy
Great solid boards good pop and concave
Also very stylish
What board paint stays on the board really good


Iv been skating for 10 years which containded blind, zero, stereo, but then I got my foundation. it was the best board I ever had still to today I skate foundation. massive pop, light, I got so much better at all my trick plus learning new ones and landing them quickly
Got 7.8 deck and just indy trucks, reds, and rictas still get some amazing height, you just have to look at their team videos too, they ain't known but pretty damn spectacular
Most amazing board ever and some are made in us. Amazing quality pop mellow concave but a really comfortable feel to it.

435Boro NYC


The bd is good because when you land a kickflip there is good grip. It cost me £120

46Tony Hawk

I've tried just about every board on this list (I've been skateboarding for a while) and none of them even come close to prestige. I am also sponsored by them. They are light as hell and get TONS of air. Lots of pop. If you are a heavy skater, I full on recommend this board.
Hands down. Best board on this list. Awesome pop. Also one of the lightest boards I know. Hard to break. Number one choice of all boards.
I've had one of these boards for years and it rides good and has pop like no other. It's a little expensive, but to me it's worth it.

58Santa Monica Airlines
Light and has a lot of pop and concave. The pros on their team have mad skills in pools and street. Best thing of all no deck has the same graphic because they are all hand stained.
All the locals at the skateparks I go to have them. Great riders like tuma Britton and Bennett harada who are awesome. Also they have street boards pool boards and some long boards




Terrible don't get if you r a good skater don't get it I snapped mine In a week don't get it please you will waste your money. Concave loses fast same with pop an get razor tail.
Good pop, great graphics, and good wood and most importantly reasonable and affordable price..
Good pop lasts man long cheap and very durable and has sick graphics and skinny and great flip

Landway has a good design a a good pop, all skateboard decks depends on the user. This landway deck is really good for beginners, you can try this dud... It has also 7 ply :D, and a good designs that's all

Good pop but doesn't last long
