New Advances in Crap Skateboards

plasticboard

A trip to the toy store almost never disappoints when looking for Skate and Annoy fodder. One of the Kryptonics license holders makes some plastic skateboards that are near Penny board quality, the wheels have decent bearings and they spin quite freely. The trucks are tight, but they have a little room to loosen built in already. The deck design, namely the kicktail and off-putting concave could be better, but it’s not an abomination. At $40, you could do worse when shopping for a beginner who just wants to roll. (UPDATE: Looks like a Mojo Pahse III) Then there’s this Disney character board with Jake and the Neverland Pirates that appears to be molded in one piece, trucks included! Almost ready to ride right off the injection molding machine, just add bearings and wheels.

One thing I didn’t notice until I read the sticker this photo, apparently this skateboard is a choking hazard!

Warning: Reduce the risk of serious injury by not riding this skateboard.

Sorry for the blurry cellphone photo, but I’m not going back anytime son and i wanted to show the in store skate stopper and mysterious kingpin contraption. I’m not sure how they got that bushing on there. It’s a Chris Angel mind freak!

    I wonder if it has a kingpin at all. That could be a no-hole bushing, squeezed in under high pressure.

    • I had the same idea. Maybe it’s split in the back. I should have examined it closer. I kind of want to buy one and take it apart.
