Top 10 Skateboard Decks with the Most Pop
The Top Ten
Yo dawg I had this plan b board for like 15 years so the pop is so dank! I can Ollie over 10 feet and Rodney Mullen came to my house and said my board is so good he wants it. I told him no because it's legendary so he became my slave for 20 years just so he could have it, at the end I never gave it to him haha! but in the mean time, I went to the X games and beat tony hawk by doing a 1440 Christ Air on a half pipe! then he let me have his wife, also with this board I fought off the apocalypse and parted the Red Sea. I did all this with my handy dandy plan b skate board!
I was told in the shop to try a Plan B because of the wood quality and hence better pop. I thought it was all BS because there were no other brands with concave at 8.25” in the shop. But - big difference. I don't like the graphics of the brand. AntiH and Real have always been my favorites - but I think it will be hard to sacrifice an amazing pop and concave for just graphics and brand in the future. They are anyway gone after a few boardslides. The Plan B deck was like glued to my feet. I really skated better somehow. Definitely worth a try. Highly recommend Plan B - not as brand - but for having a better skate deck!
I agree that 'Plan B' boards have some of the coolest graphics and some of the nicest shapes of a lot of boards, however, it doesn't matter what brand of deck you buy. Almost all decks, (except cheap decks you can buy from 'Walmart', etc...) are made out of the same wood, 7 ply Canadian mayple. I think so long as you don't go the cheap brands, you should be fine to have most decks. One brand that you will find at your local skateshop will be 'Darkstar'. This deck is made out of Chinese wood which does affect the overall deck so maybe give that brad a miss
I have had a stupid crapy board bought from quicksilver for ages. I am gonna get the plan b pudwill era prospec pro deck. Looks sick and is gonna be mental. You can not get any better than plan b, my friend is sponserd by a local skate shop and has a girl deck, he says that is sick but thinks I should get this deck, he can do pretty much every trick in the book and is only 13. My list: 1 plan b 2 girl 3 santa cruz
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
Was the last deck I bought in the 90's and was definitely the best of them all. My friends had far more skill than I did, yet I seemed to ollie higher than them and I suspect it had something to do with the deck. Albeit it was a 7.5" Tim Gavin, so not much weight to it but plenty of pop regardless.. Anyway, I haven't skated since, but about to buy another deck for the first time in almost 20 years - has to be another girl. : )
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.
Baker is the best I’ve used Baker decks for quite a while and with their pop and concave they just always seem to satisfy me even if I had razor tail on them is still get high ollies and flip tricks and if you never tried baker you should try it they are the best in my opinion.
I just bought a baker fresh and fully stable ready to ride went out and jumped 7 stairs and landed it without any trouble it's was awesome I would think if u don't have a baker your missing it on a life time of fun
They don't snap easy, my friend has one and he has had it for 3 years not 1 crack
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.
Zero make the best boards awesome designs, great pops, sturdy and strong design awesome logo and graphics. Will definitely recommend it as it is probably going to be my board choice for the rest of my life. I have the zero blood board 7 inch and it is brilliant. I have tried many other board brands and they haven't matched up to the brilliant benchmark that zero has withstood.
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
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 have a almost board and I can not break it. It still holds up and has good pop even though it is water logged
I agree zero is good but what is element doing there. almost has good pop but not element they suck
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.
Element is a very good brand for lightness and durability. my element board lasted me a long time I fact I still have it! It's a year old but it's still perfectly fine it has some chips on the edges but it's a very flexible and durable board. The pop on the board is amazing because of how steady and light it is!
Super light, sick looks, amazing logo, no creaking sounds, environmental friendly, sturdy, durable, cheap at a 45-55 price range for featherlight boards, 65 for helium, I've heard people say it's easy to break because of the reduced weight, but I abused my board 8 hours a day, 365 days a year, for 3 years, and my first board is still in one piece. Best starter board ever.
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!
I got a complete for Christmas and it sucks. It chips so fast and loses pop. I have a crappy razor tail from skating for 2 months with the board. Don't buy Birdhouse, save your money.
Sucks so bad I got one the deck is too heavy and thick to get in the air and their is no concave the pop sucks and the wheels I got were made of plastic only get one of these is you just wanna smash something or mess around
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
I want to be sponsored by alien workshop because I skate goofy footed I am fascinated with aliens and I think the alien workshop designs are epic and fascinating and I will have a world round goofy footed skate session with all the pro goofy footed skaters world wide.
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
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.
I've tried many decks over the years, and real is by far the best! Almost was a close second, but real is better. I can probably bust out a 4 or 5 foot Ollie on one of these things. After a year of hard street skating, my deck was too razor tailed to skate. BUY A REAL! #1 in skating!
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!
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.
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?
my friend has one and his frexin ollie's are on steroids with his new choclate and he has the heaviest trucks evr and he still gets up there like WAT! O and he has a chocolate board, element wheels, venture trucks(heavy as evr), and reds bearings. I so envy him right now
Nothing pops like a toy machine. The only reason this isn't #1 is because the other voters haven't ridden one. You'll seriously add a foot to your Ollie easily the first time you pop their decks. It's a travesty these decks aren't known or respected for how superior they are
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
This deck is sick! I got it about a month ago as a beginner deck and it's awesome! Learned all the tricks I know on this, and it has crazy good pop. The nose is shorter than the tail, which I personally like, but that's just a preference. Great control, great pop, great deck! Buy a toy machine!
I currently have had the same Toy Machine board for about 5 months (skating every day). I have to say that it is extremely durable and good at flips. However, the back of the board has worn down A LOT over the relatively small period of time, and I think that this is affecting my ollies and pop height by a ton. I still love Toy Machine boards, but the tail gets worn out very quickly, and this really effects the pop. :(
After snapping my Blind deck in half, I went for an Expedition One deck. They are printed by the same company as DGK so it's more or less the same board. Nice concave, nice durability, but the main factor that makes this deck the best for me is the FLEX. I'm a street/tech skater who occasionally does transition (not much, though), so a flexible board is a must. I can land with my front foot in the middle really hard and it gives a nice bend but does not stress crack or break. Awesome deck
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
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.
I had a element and a chocolate before I got my dgk and it is amazing good pop I had it for an amazing 3 months people that have boards for more than a year probably suck
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
I have a Santa Cruz screaming hand and it's pop is huge I get so much height it should be first 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.
Santa Cruz is by far the best, best pop best flip, best everything. I have had this skateboard for two years! I have done stair sets rails and it still won't break
Yo dawg I had this world industries board for like 15 years so the pop is so dank! I can Ollie over 10 feet and Rodney Mullen came to my house and said my board is so good he wants it. I told him no because it's legendary so he became my slave for 20 years just so he could have it, at the end I never gave it to him haha! but in the mean time, I went to the X games and beat tony hawk by doing a 1440 Christ Air on a half pipe! then he let me have his wife, also with this board I fought off the apocalypse and parted the Red Sea. I did all this with my handy dandy world industries skate board!
I voted for this just because of the top comment
I've had my world industries for nearly 7 years, and it still hasn't snapped and pops amazingly.
This comment made my day better
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 have been skating for over 10+ years and I have tested a lot of decks and I love deathwish by far because the pop is amazing and they hardly ever snap nice ass decks deathwish love it!
Umm... This brand is alright I mean it has great pop great designs but the tail ALWAYS goes really short so it doesn't pop as good as it wood used to
FIRST OF ALL, no certain brand has 'the most pop' its not that simple, a certain brand has many different pro models with different shapes and sizes that's like saying "what car brand has the fastest engines".. Certain FLIP boards have more pop than certain GIRL boards and certain GIRL boards have more pop than certain FLIP boards.. But in general average I think FLIP tends to more decks with better pop and FLIP boards, FOUNDATION,AND MYSTERY have the GREATEST shapes overall! AND WHAT is up with all these people saying they've skated the same deck for 5 years your delirious no way that has any pop left on it at all probably NEGATIVE POP you kids even know what your talking about haha?
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
Flips have amazing pop and are super gnarly all around. Great graphics and great shape is just and + to these gnarly boards
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.
I love the creature board when I'm out in the park with my friends I have an amazing pop and my friends said that Creature has amazing pop
Creature are totes killer, new P2 models have hella pop, well tough and fairly light too.
Black Label are rad too.
I got my board over a year ago has not let me down fulfills all expectations, fantastic pop, great overall board and can handle tricks very well.
The brand are good they were in tony hawk American wasteland
Does this board brand exist
What is this brand
Never heard of it
The pop is really great you should get yourself a cliche
I just got a new cliche I'm a total beginner I just figured out how to do an ollie on it, yay!
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~
I'm getting one have seen heaps of great reviews
Not a very big company but man, this is the best deck I have skated so far. Pop is good, concave feels so natural to the feet and razor tails for like forever. So one day I am so mad and tried to snap my board but, it snapped for like the 11th attempt :D go buy and support this company.
Getting back into Skateboarding after retirement. 63 now and seems like I've lost almost all my skills after 45 years or so. I searched the net for old guy tips and discovered the Revive youtubers. Fun videos and some good info too. I bought three of their last chance boards and so far so good although I'd list myself as a rank beginner now. I've worked up to easy ramps now, no jumping yet. I do like the shape and feel of the Revive decks better than the antiques I have used/
These boards are great. Can’t break it. Should be higher on the list!
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
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
Good pop n doesn't stick with slides
I recommend this board if you are in love with ledges and rails
My favourite decks. Loads of pop, crazy strong and gnarly graphics. British too. Tempted to try Baker or Deathwish, seeing as it's the same distribution.
Heroin are sweet decks, lightweight durable with tons of pop, and the best graphics
Heroins great! But were talking about the deck, it sucks, don't GET HEROIN
If you don't skate a Heroin board you may as well take Heroin
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
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
Why is this at 12? I've skated many different brands of boards and enjoi is always what I find myself coming back to. They have the best pop and the best concave, nothing more to be said.
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
Darkstar isn't that special when it comes to pops. The pop is okay. If you know how to pop the board you'll adapt to the pop your board has. I recommend Darkstar if you want a board that will not break easily. I swear one time the board hit a wall and came back with parts of the wall on it while the board was still in great shape
This board is not the lightest and it doesn't have much pop. But it makes up for it in strength and durability. If I were you I would buy a plan B, Totally sick!
The ones you get at skate shops are awesome great all around
getting darkstar armour light they rock
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.
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.
Dude Blinds Own there heaps flexible and dont snap , heaps good for board slides and good pop
Blind are made in the same factory as almost zero darkstar and cliche so all of you idiot saying one of these is good and another sucks are idiots
