The Return of the 10 x 33 and Other eBay Finds

Regular readers of this blog may recognize the above shape as something I have written about plenty of times before. These decks are available from a handful of sellers on eBay and range in price from $15.99 USD up to $24.99 USD. The stained bottom veneer and the wheel wells are a new edition that I've not seen before and make these cheap decks even more visually appealing. So, what's the deal with them? Are they worth buying? That depends on you. Are you a skater on a tight budget like myself? Can you live with the fact that the 16" wheelbase may leave a small gap between your risers and your deck? If you answered yes to either of these questions then these decks are not a bad deal at all.

Next up is the "Seven Sins" 7 ply retro square tail slick bottom skateboard deck, made in U.S.A. and reasonably priced at $27.99 USD. This one caught my eye as I was browsing for 9" skateboard decks and stands out because of its simplicity. It's simply RAD.
