I have a byerly skate and it seems to fall apart more and more after everytime i ride. Like cracks in the glossy paint on the sides and just layers starting to come apart. The first one I got online came crack now this one is just seems to get worse. Is that normal for wood skates? Also is the byerly team (specifically George Daniels) panting the sides of the skate for that reason or only looks?
I have a 39" and have the same problem. I was talking to him at OWC one day and he said that thats where they always break and that he goes through a board every 3-4 weeks. He was also riding one of the newer boards that was laminated with something and just by looking at it, it looks like it would hold up much longer. In this video he is riding the board I'm talking about.
i love my heritage, it is my favourite deck, but like everyone is saying mine seems to not be the strongest, like alex said i think they will fix it with their new skates.. im glad because i really love mine.
