Shaped/Old School/Reissue Skateboard Decks
Here at Slick Willies, we’ve been supporting the UK skateboard scene since the 70's and are still doing so today. Decades of experience have given us incomparable knowledge on skateboard hardware, so we carefully select the brands and products that we stock.
Old school shaped skateboard decks are a nostalgic throwback to the early days of skateboarding in the 1970s and 1980s. These decks feature a distinctive shape that sets them apart from the modern popsicle-shaped boards commonly seen today. The old school shape is characterized by a wider nose and tail, with a more pronounced kicktail and a less symmetrical design.
The width of old school decks typically ranges from 8.5 inches to 10 inches or more, offering a more stable and comfortable ride, particularly for cruising and carving. The wider surface area also provides ample space for a skater's feet, making it easier to land tricks and maintain control during high-speed manoeuvres.
