I might have posted THIS interview with Steve Rodriguez from 5Boro before, but i guess some kids might still not know how good this company is, here is what he says about their boards:"This is usually an "industry secret" and I've always been told to be vague but our boards are made in the USA (Alabama specifically) of Canadian Hard Rock Maple - our woodshop takes great pride in the manufacture and screening of the boards and we prefer to spend a little more in the process by pressing the boards with the upmost quality and precision. This choice was rough because to spend this much time on each board individually costs much more but we all know the feeling of how bummed we are when you set up a new board only to break it when you know it should not have broke. I'm not saying that 5boro boards don't break but I am saying that the craftsmanship is second to none."
