Correct, trendy and getting expensive.

They invented the game there in the U.K., except they call it "gof," without the L.

Hi Dave,
Welcome to the site from another brit, ex Londoner now in Canterbury. It would be interesting to see how bad your deck is mate, you'd be surprised how some decks can be revived from a very poor state.

Hi Dave,

Lots of Brits in here 😉

 

Oh the deck is bad.  It was wet and stank of cat pee.  It's currently wrapped in plastic with about 2Kg of silica gel.   Trying to dry it out slowly, but it's badly de-laminated....  and the smell 😉  I had to try something, but it's not looking good..  or rather smelling good.

 

It would have been nice to restore my original board, but failing that..  I'll re-create it faithfully.  

 

Thanks for the welcome.

 

David

Thats a real shame Dave about your deck, always sad to hear original decks ending up in the skateboard graveyard. No doubt you will eventually recreate your skateboard with a bit of patience.

I've put calls out for a OG deck...  one will show up sooner or later.  Pity it's not MY deck...  but so long as I have a recreation of my beloved deck..  all period correct...  I'm happy.  I've restored the trucks, and I've put some feelers out for OG red kryps. 


I've just ordered a re-issue...  but that's to actually skate on.  It will be my cruising board 😉
