“I just got the Darkstar Wood board a week a go and i...”

Written on: 17/10/2004 by zip180 (1 review written)

I just got the Darkstar Wood board a week a go and i was so disappointed. The nose is not steep enough, it doesn't catch your foot when you ollie or do flips. I can't 360flip or hard flip with it because the shape feels weird. it does pop pretty well, but when you're doing a gap, you can't keep it under your feet because you can't extend your ollie without your foot going over the nose. It also sucks for nollies because too much of the nose touches the ground when you pop it, this can be a… Read Full Review

I have the Darkstar Wood deck about 5 months and it still has that amazing pop. Before this I had a Word Industries deck. Very good pop+flip. Great to do 360 flip, impossible... and they have cool graphics too!!! Note: buy DARKSTAR!!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/07/2004 by Bojangles (143 reviews written)

At the beginning of my school year my friend had a Darkstar deck and he let me skate it, I remember that the shape was really nice, the weight was average and it had a reasonable amount of pop. It seemed like a really good beginner deck, so if any beginner s are reading this go and get yourself a Darkstar at your local skate shop and trust me you won't regret it… Read Full Review

My Darkstar just snapped and it's only been a month, when I 1st bought it and rode it I was like WOW! really good board, it stayed great for a long time but then it snapped, lots of people say its very strong because they are posers and don't know how to skateboard, overall its a decent board… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/05/2004 by Darkstar and Almost Skater (3 reviews written)

Darkstar is awesome, it has awesome concave and great pop. That is when I do flip tricks I can clear at least 4 decks...sometimes 6. However... I can't just plain ollie 4 decks on this board and I can on other boards...But maybe thats just me because I can do it while flipping and cant just ollie it. I can ollie an almost mullen shinguard deck over 6 decks with complete ease but I can flip that as well so I dont know… Read Full Review

IT was a Darkstar Wood Monster mold skateboard, purchased by my friend at his local shop (for 65 Bucks!?!) anyway i went over to his house after school he had only taken it to his skatepark 2-3 times in the two weeks of having it. barely ridden at all. Even still smelled new. I wanted to try kickflipping the 4stairs next to his house with it. Caught the flip halfway down the set, and boom! in Half. Couldnt believe my eyes.

Ive been skating for 2 years now I have had a Industries deck, Element deck, and a Flip deck. But by far the best was my Darkstar Wood it lasted me the longest. For about 7 months I was able to ollie higher and my flip tricks improved quite vastly. I highly reccomend this to any one who wants to buy a great long lasting deck… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/01/2004 by skaterguy (1 review written)

Any board with monstermold construction blows, they are made in china with cheap wood and loose shape, pop, and snap after a month or so, people who choose to ride for monstermold based companies dont do it for the good boards they do it for the cash and publicity. I wouldnt skate a darkstar by choice but if someone payed me to I would skate on them for life, put that in you're mind and let it sit for a while...skate santa cruz, they last forever… Read Full Review

How long have you been skating and how many different kinds of decks have you tried because those numbers seem like they would be pretty small.

Written on: 19/07/2003 by KAR. (1 review written)

The very first brand new deck i ever bought was a darkstar. At first like most new decks, i liked it alot, but as i used it more and more over a few weeks its nose got really messed up and after like a month i had to constantly glue down the nose between plys just to keep the board together. Needless to say it broke when i landed a pretty small boardslide and that was enough proof for me that darkstar decks blow… Read Full Review

I started to agree with darkglobe until he said darkstar forever
<br>Yes every board has its breaking point and darkstars breaking point is about as strong as carrot tops stand up. and if you don't know what that means... it means Darkstars is worse than Polly shore

Well edman and jordan I have to say that you are the posers if you can't make your decks last. Every board has it's breaking point, you just seem to find it faster than most people. DARKSTAR FOREVER!

Allen. you said a lot of companies there so you clearly don't know Rodney Mullen owns every company you just said. I got to give you props on Kottonmouth kings. but. blind and worlds are made almost exactly the same as Darkstars. How are labels and birdhouses strictly vert decks. Label has kristian svitak, Kyle Leeper, Adam Alfaro, Jim Gagne, Ben gilley, and pat Rakestraw who are all clearly not vert skaters. and birdhouse has and had some of the best street skaters ever. willy Santos, Brian Sumner, Jeremy Klein, heath kirchart, and Steve berra. and darkglobe. no one cares what Transworld said and they probably didn't check out Darkstars for more than an hour which the pop is usually gone by then.

Here we go again! When will you posers learn that Darkstar is the best? You can't beat them. And why you saying that It has horrible pop. Transwold Skateboarding said it had one of the best pops they had ever had. Unless you are over 190 (which you shouldn't be skating and should lay off the twinkies), then it has excellent pop and flip. Power to all my Darkstar people.

who ever says darkstar suks are idiots i mean darkstar are strong, have killer pop, great shape,and awesome concave
<br> what is not to like and enjoi have the same exact
<br>mold as darkstar some differences like shape and darkstar are stronger and have more pop , on enjois the tail is longer than the nose on some, but dont get me wrong Enjois are good boards also dont get Birdhouse the totally suk little pop, sucky concave the also are heavy there is nothing good about them trust me my cousin had one i have been skating darkstar for 4 years now the only there are only 2 companys that come close and that is Enjoi and Element, but elements chipped to easily the day i got it the first trick i did it chipped a lot and Enjois have pretty good pop but it doesnt last that long the good thing about about Enjoi is that they flip like crazy and great concave the good thing about element is that they are ultra light good shape meduim concave and flip easy

yeah. . . i have to agree with chris, man. i just bought a chet thomas darkstar and 3 days later it got hit by a van, right to the right of the middle, and it didn't snap. it was in perfect condition except the truck snapped. that was the only bad thing-and the griptape is now messed-but darkstar is the best and if you have any problems with it, kiss my bum

You say they suck? Thats why professional skateboarders choose to ride for them isn't it. Chet Thomas rides for darkstar, hes sponsered by globe, Rodney Mullen is sposnered by globe too. Someone who is good enough to be on a skate team with Rodney Mullen would be good enough to choose from pretty much any board company, why would he choose darkstar if they suck. Also Darkstars have monster mold, so do enjoi's, thats what Rodney Mullen skates. Darkstar and Enjoi's pretty much are made the same way with the same shape. You also said he only bought the board because it had cool graphics. So! Unless you skate a blank deck you should shut the hell up. Graphics definatley influeance any one to buy it, you cant say let me see that board then put trucks on and go skate it then come back tell the shop you like it so your going to buy it.
