Is that white under the green where its scratched—or is that just the way its catching the light?


Quoted the wrong post. But ya, there may be some white.


The reason I ask is that back in the day just before the DP decks were released, NHS dumped and entire first run of decks meant to be the first DP model because they did not meet the quality expected. These decks had a white primer to cover up the poor quality of the wood and manufacture. They were put in NHS' dumpster which was later raided by a person who took the decks to another woodshop were they were shaped and painted with the DP graphic. As Jeff Kendall explained to me, the tell on what he considered to be fakes was they had a white primer on them when they were disposed off and the guy who scooped them printed/painted over the basecoat. Santa Cruz boards did not have pre-shot primer on the product—all paint/print/basecoat etc was done at Santa Cruz (this was just before Santa Cruz' manufacturing moved their manufacturing to a furniture woodshop in Wisconson that created some of the best decks ever).

Kendall informed that the guy went around to skate shops offering these decks for a fraction of their usual wholesale price and thus was able to move them quickly and before NHS could interfere. By the time NHS realised what had happened, all the decks had been sold. The white primer is the tell, he said.


Thank you. That’s a really interesting story. I guess I’ll ask the seller for more pics to be sure.
If it’s authentic, do you have an idea on the value?
Thanks again.

Legit and Mint $800 - $2400

It spirals down from there weighing the legitimacy and condition.

If I had the cash I'd drop $600 without blinking. I looked for one for 25 years.

I have this for sale, don't want to sell it but I need the cash:

Thanks man. I appreciate all the insight. I’ll let you know what happens.

Your board is beautiful. Sorry you have to part with it.

Peace
