Jaya Bonderov #5.
The late Jaya Bonderov ollies into a noseslide on a ledge at EMB.
A few different companies were toying around with slick bottom boards around this time. B.B.C., Naked, and Santa Cruz were three of the first to sell decks with a pop dulling plastic coating on them. Soon everybody followed and the marketplace was inundated with variations on the concept. Fortunately, this trend was short lived and plain wood regained its place as the choice deck material.
I only had a handful of slicks and it was confined to 1992. I know I had a New Deal Danny Sargent, a Mike Carroll Nevertrend, a Chris Pastras from Blue, and a Sal Barbier Low Rider. I think that was all. There were a few regular wooden boards in there as well.
Is anybody still making slicks today?
