Usually this is the choice for the tech skater but some old guys that like flatter decks also appreciate this mold. Flat spots beyond the outer truck holes provide a stable platform for nose and tail slides. Smooth transitions through the nose, tail, and center concave provide a stable platform that is not too ‘twitchy’ for flip tricks. Click the sizes below for the most popular specs.

Steep nose and tail with a deep center concave. Abrupt transitions abound, these help to stiffen the deck and give it a quick snap. Nose and tail flip starts quickly after the outer truck holes exaggerating the steepness. The kids love’em, top choice for most of the under 20 skateboarders. This is our best selling concave, but mellow has been steadily taking market share. Click the sizes below for the most popular specs.

RECENT CUSTOM SHAPE AND MOLD QUESTIONS?
I want to make a new mold for regular popsicle decks that is exactly symmetrical for deck widths 7.75 to 8.5. What's the cost?
The cost will be pretty significant. We’ll need a CAD file for the concave, usually the top plane and a few inches longer and wider than the widest width you plan on producing. We’ll probably need an order of 500 decks and the tooling cost will vary depending on the details.
I've got a deck shape I really like. Can you make a custom shape by copying it if I send it to you?
We really shy away from copying a shape from an existing deck. We’d need a vector/CAD file to make the shape. Copying from existing shapes is much harder than it sounds as different concaves can make the same vector shape feel very different to an experienced skater. With a computer file we can make sure things match up mathematically. Custom shape info
CUSTOM SHAPES AND MOLDS/CONCAVES
We make custom shapes all the time. This requires custom CNC and/or shape templates. Minimums are higher and turnaround times longer. Custom shape info
We have a variety of ‘open-use’ molds that we have used for various projects over the years that may work for you. Full custom molds takes tons of work and are very expensive. The molds have to be mapped in CAD, cut by a CNC machine, and tested. We usually require 100’s of decks to be ordered from a custom mold. Be prepared for significant investment if you go the custom mold route!
