BAKER Skateboard Deck Review!! (8.38)

My honest review of an 8.38 Baker Riley Hawk mellow concave skateboard deck! (Ruined it pretty quickly because I was eager to skate and skated in 15-degree weather in my garage.)

(Reuploaded because I messed up editing the end, and it bugged me.)

Try a real low pro 2 deck next

KillaKami says:

Also the baker b2 boards have steep concave and squared off nose/tail, so maybe you should check one of those out.

Good review/ tricks with the board man! Love watching your review videos!

Machinegunkuzzy 16 says:

They have baker b2 boards which are steep concave next time you get around to a baker board maybe check out one of those shapes!

Clayton Whitener says:

I have a Baker 8 and a Primitive 8.125 Shane shape and while I know they’re different widths, the baker feels so much lighter and frankly cheaper and more flexible. The primitive feels heavy a durable. Just some observations.

rroollfallen says:

I know exactly what you mean when skating with wet conditions. I have ruined few boards like that :/ keep it up with the good content Chris! Weather in Virginia has been weird for skating! Cheers

Robert Levesque says:

Im going to zumiez for my 20th birthday. What kind of board do you recommend getting? I skated an 8.25 i got heavier, would you reccomend getting bigger size, if so what size?

KillaKami says:

Baker boys distribution, dlx products (krooked, real, etc.), Pass port, the killing floor and a ton of other companies use the same wood (bareback/generator). I’m sure the only difference is the mold that they use to press them.
