Prete Review - Urban Talks - ReUpload

Hey Folks, Onkel Urban back at it again with another review. Here we go!
A few years ago Peter, the owner of Prete ( @Petrum ) , gave me this deck. Test
it, he said, ride it he said and so I did. And here it is, the review
about the legendary Prete boards.

To be honest I have no idea where to start because there is so much
to talk about. Straight out of the packaging, the first look is always
important and Peter definitely knows that. Well okay the packaging is
easy and nothing special but the only thing that counts is the content.
When you take the board of the packaging you will see the brilliance and
perfection of those boards.

Every edge is smoother then the lips of every top model on this
planet and the counter sinks are made from heaven. 5-plys of perfection.
Peter takes his time for every board and you can definitely see that.
You wont find any small wood splits or cracks. You won’t find any ruff
edges, everything looks perfectly made straight from the first look.
Let’s talk about the shape later and focus on the design. Well, you
would probably say : Yo there is almost no design why you make such a
big deal out of it? In my opinion there is a reason for this
minimalistic design. I guess the reason is to go back to nature, if you
feel the bottom ply of the deck you will feel the grain and see the
veins of the wood.

The wood is special, some sort of a root wood thing or smth I don’t
know. Every board is unique every design is some sort of unique too.
Stamp design or even printed? I don’t know. It’s minimalistic but I
truly like that. Specially that he doesn’t lacquere his decks. Yes you
hear right no lacquere. He uses some sort of oil or wax which hardness
the wood and holy duck you will feel it. You will threw slides out of
your hand like a yung wizard fire balls. It’s amazing!

Let’s talk about the shape.

Super krispy! Medium kicks and a smooth con cave give you a pop like a
rabbit on mdma. And even if you ride the board for a longer time it
will not let you down.

The shape is good, but not my thing. I like it low more likely flat
but the shape of the Prete boards will satisfy 90% of you guys I’m
pretty sure about that. I ride the board for couple of months and it
still looks smexy and still pops like a new one.
So to bring it on point, Prete boards are the diamonds of the
fingerboard scene. Well yeah they share the spot with Flint boards but
yes they are perfection! If you want to purchase one check the instagram
of Prete boards or the homepage!

that shape is beautiful!


Oh, yeah really good place for your reviews :+1:t3:. You can imagine that i want to read all of them :sunglasses::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


Great review bro.

Prete Decks are epic!! I own three and have the pleasure of owning a new 6010 mold Prete deck.
I would definitely recommend trying the new shape to all.
Ive owned many decks, many many decks, and I can put my hand on my heart and say the craftsmanship and finish on Prete Decks will not disappoint.


Thank you i appreciate that!

@ yeah i definitely need to try the new shape! I totally agree with your words!


FOr sure more Reviews are coming soon!

@GoFFingerboards soon i will upload yours as well :slight_smile:


I bought a Prete after reading this review. Thanks for the information!


Im sure you will have fun with them :slight_smile:


Nice review, I never knew about the oil or waxing of the decks.


The deck is beautiful, you were right! I’m going to save it for later, as it looks too nice to set up right away. This is the one I got from the ASI Berlin Shop (the picture is from Prete’s Instagram):


Nice review, I put the prete 6010 on the top of my list for my next deck. There is something about the simple design and excellent craftsmanship (what is expected from Germans! :grin:)!


I’ve wanted a Prete since the old days, but I didn’t put much money into fingerboarding back then, and they were also quite difficult to get. Is Peter still making decks now?


The review was written in March and model 6010 is the most recent model from Prete’s decks. So yes :blush:
