Protecting Your Deck
“Can u get some sort of protection for the bottom of your deck, so when you skate the picture doesn’t skratch off?”
I’m not sure, I’ve never heard of anything like that or tried to look for anything like it before, but I’ll post this up to see if anyone else knows of any product.
You could use something not necessarily for skateboards though – like a hardcoat gloss varnish, you could pick some up from a hardware store quite cheaply. I don’t know how effective it would be but it would certainly offer some level of protection (and might even lengthen your slides).
The whole scratching thing though, it’s the best reason not to buy a more expensive pro deck – it’s blank decks all the way for me.
