Today we are excited to talk about and put to the test Jake Wooten’s 8.5 x 32.2 ‘Crest’ Pro Model VX Deck! VX decks are thinner, stronger, and have more pop than standard 7 ply decks featuring 5 plies of North American Maple and 2 layers of Quad X technology. This board also features rad artwork by our friend Thomas Fernández aka LiveRadStudios! If you do not grab this one to shred, be sure to grab one to add some flare to the walls at home. Our friend Nate Newton from legendary hardcore band CONVERGE put The Big Dog himself Santa Cruz Skateboards Brand Manager Andrew Cannon to the test with THREE different challenges to find out how this setup skates! Let us know in the comments below which product you’d like to see us test next!
