Wood: China vs. Mexico vs. USA (Update # 4)

Fourth update on the wood showdown. I haven't been skating a whole lot the past two months due to a heat wave, home renovations and vacation. The PS Stix USA Habitat board lasted me for 6 sessions over 2 months. It was definitely the most solid feeling of the three boards. I brought it with me to Tofino and skated the park one evening and ended up breaking it on a flat ground 360 flip. Super bummed.

In the grand scheme of things, I prefer the wood from PS Stix or BBS Mexico. I'll never buy another China Black Label but I will try out other Chinese wood such as Chocolate and Girl, neither of which I've tried in over 10 years.

Next up are two PS Stix USA Jason Dill boards.
