“Broke within a month”

Written on: 28/07/2014 by axtrix (1 review written)

Yep. About a month usage, it (wood) broke near the front truck. There goes 75€ to the trash. It was a darkstar complete, I mean, wheels were alright, very plasticky, trucks were alright too, graphics were a bit gay but wtvr. And then, while landing a simple Ollie, it just broke. Never going to waste my money on a darkstar *thing* again. Bye. btw, I had a feeling it was a bit heavy, but I don't know if that was just my impression… Read Full Review

“One of the BEST”

Written on: 17/12/2012 by PizzaSkater (1 review written)

Darkstar Deck is the best. It has a beautiful concave, its like heaven, it has massive pop. The graphic gets scratched off wich is normal and I highly reccomend the deck, their wheels are great. What i like is that i get a lot of pop with this board and the concave gives better control. The deck is also very light. It is great for boardslides, tailslides, noseslides and lipslides coz it slides well. And its really great to get the deck thats guarenreed never to break. What I dont like is thier… Read Full Review

“Good board, needs improving.”

Written on: 19/10/2012 by Albatross666 (1 review written)

I have to say that the darkstar skateboards are a good design and have good 'pop' but the one criticism I have to say is that the wheels are very plasticky. Whenever I use it the wheels seem to almost 'stick' to the path and rapidly slow me down meaning I need to push every 5-10 seconds which gets pretty irritating when all your friends are passing you. This is not the bearings since I have changed them very recently. Other than that though I have to say that is it a good board and is just… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/04/2007 by A7777 (37 reviews written)

This is an ok Deck, but only because it was free. The best things in life are free but I wouldn't ever buy one. The pop isn't all that great, although I liked it I guess. The wood itself retained its pop well, and the wood is ok too. I would buy one if it was made un the America's, but I don't want every company making their stuff in China soon, so I'll support THEM by buying their American made products. Darkstar's been a nice experience though, but if they were cheap as world industries… Read Full Review

“Darkstar, Almost and Enjoi are all made in the same...”

Written on: 13/04/2007 by luka (5 reviews written)

Darkstar, Almost and Enjoi are all made in the same factory, they use the same wood and glue, Darkstar have an exclusive design called armor light which is guaranteed for 30 days, and almost have the new impact support boards coming out that feature carbon fibre discs in all the common breaking points.
This proves that Darkstar, Almost and Enjoi are all the same so go for one of them because you wont be disappointed.
Heavier skaters should go for resin 8, resin 9 or armor light because resin 7… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/12/2006 by duffy1112 (1 review written)

Ok, i have to say i think the grafics on Darks Stars are ok but this board is soooo bad. I got one as a spare deck for when my Flip deck snapped because it was pretty close to that, so i got Darkstar Armorlights recommended to me so i thought that they were worth a try and i managed to snap it after 4 times out on it. The snap came as no suprise because the board was so bendy and it snapped when i did a simple bean plant… Read Full Review

“I got this Chet Thomas drip logo "Monster Mold" board...”

Written on: 03/07/2006 by somewone (3 reviews written)

I got this Chet Thomas drip logo "Monster Mold" board in new jersey for 35 dollars. It came with free black magic grip tape and some hardware. I mounted it on my board. The first ollie i did was only 3in high and i average 9-10in. also it felt soggy and the pop sounded damp and not clean. The monster mold concave leaves a flat beam in the centre, whitch is uncomfortable and a DEEP concave, which was way to uncomfortable.
NOT GOOD WHATSOEVER. Also the nose was to low so my foot allways slipped… Read Full Review

I have two Darkstar Armor light decks the Chet Thomas one and the Paul Machu deck and I love them. :D Kudos to Darkstar. Darkstars never break they are sick and their pop lasts forever compared to other boards and also I've never chipped or broken one. They have a weird feel to them but you get used to it real fast. And they have kinda flip but other than that they're awesome… Read Full Review

“Darkstar Wood - I got a Guy Kaphmen Battle Deck from...”

Written on: 25/01/2005 by sabator5 (16 reviews written)

Darkstar Wood - I got a Guy Kaphmen Battle Deck from my shop for 35 bucks with grip. At first I hated it. It was too small, crappy shape, and didnt feel like real wood. I had to get used to it though because the stocks were going down. So, for about 1 1/2 months I skated the China P.O.S. until I broke it lipsliding, I'm kind of glad I broke it, becasue I really didnt like it at all. It flipped good, but thats about it… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/11/2004 by darkglobe170 (1 review written)

I have owned a darkstar deck for about 3 months. The first thing you notice is it's great pop (it has better pop than my friend's 1 month old Flip and WorldIndustries decks). It also has good flip and the concave speads the weight nicely. Speaking of weight, this board has none. It is lighter than an Element superlight. It is very durable and handles grinds nicely. The only thing is it's tendency to get springy during boardslides, but it isn't much of a problem. Overall, this stuff if great… Read Full Review
