Hey ladies and gents, you know who this is, Onkel Urban back at it again with another review, and so far I can say it will be the last one. Quite a while ago, I started texting with Chris Dunlop of „Beastpants“ and came to a conclusion that I should review a deck. Thanks for that Chris! If you haven’t seen anything of Beastpants’ yet, get your head out of your arse and take a look at them because that shit is fire. Once again, thanks Chris for sending the deck and all the extra stickers and stuff!
The deck I got is one of the „Thrashwear” graphics showing a shark. Make up your own mind and take a look at the graphic. The deck is in the feral shape and in the size of: 33,5mm wide and 98mm long. It’s a pretty low shape. Short tail short nose. Overall the deck feels short, but that’s actually pretty fun. 5 plies of Wood, nice grain veneer at the bottom. The graphic is perfectly done with the heat transfer system, nothing bad to point out here.
The craftsmanship, well I did expect something better to be honest. I talked about it with Chris already and he knows what I will point out. The drilling holes are ok but one of them was crooked. Countersinks were not as beautiful as I thought they would be.
They work but they do not look so nice. The sand is overall okay, does its job. The deck itself is pressed well, I would tell quite a lot of weight on it.
A cool detail is the top ply stamp which always tells you which shape it is.
The packaging is basic. A folded piece of paper and the deck is in a plastic bag. Does work for me and it also includes some information on he back of the packaging which I personally really love.

I think it’s a solid result for Beastpants. The split plies are the real shizzle if you haven’t checked them out you should!
