I’m an old school skater I have a lot of years on Powel boards. The new reissue decks have a new concave that rock’s.
I have two rippers an original ripper and now a new reissue deck; I have to say for my old ass to get up on the walls
Takes less work on a reissue deck there lighter and the concave helps. If there’s another board out there this Old fart
Should try out let me know im willing to learn new tricks.  “Bones or Nothing”

I've been skating for more than 20 years and I have to admit the mini-logos are the best value for the money. It's great for senior citizens like me with a full-time job and a family. Performance-wise the board does pretty good when I skate non-stop for a few hours. Unlike other boards i've used, a stress crack does not mean replace soon. for the skater on a budjet, this is a good choice in my book.

I got a Powell mini logo #46 (7.75x31.5-ish).I found it slightly heavier,but just barely than other decks.It has good pop,strong as iron,no joke,the wood is like stone,and the SST(super slide treatment)is for real.Mad durable,and mad affordable($35.00 gripped and shipped).I would probably skate these decks exclusively if was wasn't interested in trying out other companies.Can't go wrong with these,the concave is pretty deep and the have a lot of sizes.They also come in a 'Superlight'version,which is lighter and thinner.Now if could only get one with a Valelly or Hill shape with updated concave...

mini logos suck! There to flemsy and they get pressure cracks to easy without risers and even without risers! so I took it out to the rifle range where I live and blew the crap out of it with my yugo sks carbine. Regular powells are better.

element is the stupidest company in the world. i bet most of you bam lovers don't even know what bams real name is. i bet i know more about bam then you! and im not even a bam lover. i just watch the show cuz its funny! but anyway, emericaskater is right. the only good guys on element are tosh and jermy wray. and that little ten year old. bam is okay but he is not the best street skater. i'd have to say that the 4 best are chris haslam, brian anderson, correy sheppard, and cairo foster. go popwar!

Yall people have no respect for the original junk these r ok but this is my message to skate element...Element board suck ur probably a poser who loves bam and has seen every episode of viva la Bam and has one of his boards to so and by the way the only reason elements popular is cuz of Bam the only good sk8er on their team is Tosh

Look look look, you can't argue how good a board is by the graph!! And how come some say good pop, some say bad pop, some say they last ages, some say they last one hour!! If you want a board that's strong and amazing, get a Libtech or a Element Fiberlight, if you want an ok board get a powell, BUT DO NOT RIDE IN THE RAIN (CLINT!*!*!!)

Powell makes a pretty average deck. Mine is a couple of years old and still hasn't broken, but it has chipped like crazy. Oh yeah, it has no pop whatsoever, and terrible concave. You can't flip this thing to save your life!

if you are low on money and just want to get out and skate get a powell mini logo. it was one of the best board i bought. it lasted 3 times as long as most of the other boards i have used and broken. it allways had good pop, it didn't start chipping for 4 months and that is a long time for me. i usually have my boards chipped in 2 or 3 weeks

Other than a few, most of you offer opinions based on empty experience. Shags, thanks for the clear rating. When some of you had trouble with the board, did you ever think that maybe it was actually operator error! I find Powell, provides a very sturdy learning product for the beginner. I am not very good, but the board is NOT the problem. Thanks Powell! -EYESopen

Powell skateboards have about the best in pipe and street skating. Grinding with a wide board and lightness that provide for creative skating in street enviornments. Powell has a wide variety of sample boards and they have always top riders testing them out.

My experience with Powell skateboards was manifested in the 80's. My friends all had Powell boards and I had an old Santa Cruz board. Their decks seemed a little heavier, yet sturdier. Old school Powell decks have a unique shape.

Powell makes a fairly decent black deck, which I would recommend if you are just starting to skate. They cost about $30, but are worth it. I have a 8.5 inch wide deck, which hasn't cracked, split or broken in my long, tedious learning process.

These boards are okay. Their prices are awesome, only $35 for a blank. However, these boards are a little heavy and they chip. Also, the boards come with a lot of pop, but the pop wears out pretty fast.

I skated for 10 years and one brand that I could rely on was Powell. Many skateboard companies come and go, but Powell (Powell Peralto) has always been. Powell's factory is within a two hour drive of the wood source, so the maple is always strong.

I have had a Powell before and it was a sick board. Very strong and cheap. I had a blank deck which lasted forever. Super good board. Would definitely by another.
