My buddy NJN, in a state of Covid Pandemic induced insanity, recently started a skateboard company. Or perhaps it is a genius time to do crazy things.
But instead of building popsicle sticks for kids, he is making shaped boards that us older skater love. Money bumps, yo!
This older skater loves riding loose trucks, but but there are two things I hate: tall riser pads and fucking wheel bite (brittle bones, ya know). So it is super rad that most NJN decks have wheel wells and a perfect concave. Most decks are 9″ wide x 33″ long, with wheel bases between 15″-15.5″
All decks are U.S.A. pressed, and they keep their pop.
So far, my favorite deck to skate is the Dull Boy. The Punk Point board is also pretty sweet. And of course, everyone loves a coffin-shaped skateboard deck. He also pays homage a nod to Rob Roskopp’s easily recognizable silhouette from the 1980s.
