Vintage Chuck Barfoot Skateboard Deck
My sister was cleaning out a closet at our parent’s house and she found this old skate deck. It was my brother’s deck. I am not sure of the exact year he got it. I am guessing around 1984, but it could be a bit earlier. (Chuck Barfoot started producing the first concave decks in 1980). I do remember hanging out at The Snoboard Shop in Calgary with my brother while the young guy at the shop meticulously hand-cut the Barfoot bear-paw logo into the grip tape while setting up the board.
I picked up a set of trucks and wheels today and will get this beautiful piece of skate history back to working condition. I’ll post some more photos after I get the deck all cleaned up.
Sadly, my first snowboard, a Barfoot Twintip, got put in the trash at some point. I would have loved to have kept that board.
So glad to see Chuck making skateboards and snowboards again. I might have order a new deck from him to compliment the vintage one.
