Real is a hardcore and established US brand with a killer team. Decks are not the lightest, but strong and blessed with loads of concave to help you stick those flips! This one has a slightly longer wheelbase than most 8" decks, which will offer you more stability. Definately worth considering when you're tall or like to skate fast! The renewal decks are using a low waste manufacturing method: less colours in the print + full wood deck = high quality deck for less money. Free griptape included. Please select if you want us to grip it or just send you a sheet.
