“Limited fingerboard decks with focus on oldschool, cruiser & fun shapes only. Handmade with love in Slovakia.”
From Slovakia with love and the first time for me to receive a letter from Slovakia. For you people outside of Europe, Slovakia is a landlocked country in Europe. It´s bordered by the Czech Republic and Austria to the west, Poland to the north, Ukraine to the east and Hungary to the south. Pretty central, huh!? I think this letter was sent from Bratislava which is the capital of the Slovak Republic.
I´ve seen the company Cruiser Joy on instagram a few weeks ago. The veneer and the shapes of these oldschool and cruiser decks on the pictures looked that good, so I´ve made a post on this website and shared the brand. A couple of days later I´ve received a message from Šimon Kožička on facebook asking me if he should send me a deck. For sure I said yes and just a few days later I´ve received my very own fingerboard deck from Curiser Joy. I´ve talked about hot shapes and cool veneer, so lets have a look on the deck:
This is the 5th deck in order of productuib and its finally mine. The Codename of this shape is “Piglet”, but call it whatever you want :-D So check out the shape:
The shape is a really nice cruiser shape with a modern and upot to date concave in a size of 34x99mm.
The graphic on this deck is some kind of a realwear/paint graphic. You can see the bootom ply threw it and it´s bright and shiny, even as the bottom ply:
Some more pictures:
And one more:
First you will notice the different shape, but that’s what it makes unique and that’s what Cruiser Joy is all about. Apart from that it has modern concave and nose is bit longer with slightly different angle than tail, just like real skateboard does, so you will be able to shred all your favourite tricks right away.
This is like the holy grail of a fingerboard cruiser deck. I can´t stop staring at it, just because of this super nice bottom ply. The width of 34mm work perfect with the new and wider YTrucks and the deck is completely hand shaped and made with five plies of exotic veneer. When I looked at the deck at first I thought this could be a four ply deck because it´s super fine and thin, but it´s made of super thin five plies:
The lacquer makes the deck super shiny and the paintjob is just perfect. And this wood is just L O V E ! The holes are perfect as fuck so the craftmanship is a 10/10 in total! Really good job Simon!
Go and check out Curiser Joy on:
