Skatro uses the highest quality parts and materials and there is no exception to this when it comes to the quality of the wood itself. Skatro uses premium maple wood that has a high "Janka Hardness" score. The Janka test is a standardized testing method used by builders to assess wood strength. We only harvest wood that meets a minimum threshold on the Janka scale. When you purchase a Skatro board, you are making investment in a board that will last a long time with no deterioration to performance.
Have you heard of the saying - "You get what you pay for"?
Beware of cheap competitor brands that use Chinese wood. Chinese wood has a low Jenka Score and is susceptible to cracking.
