^ from my experience, Crailtap (Girl, Chocolate...) are shitty wood and snap too easy (made in china). I like baker boards even though they break but if you want "quality " boards, none of the big brands such as element, Plan B, baker, girl, chocolate, and so on are your options. You have to go to less popular brands such as Roger skateboards. Toy machines are tanks (USA made) and Almost boards are very good construction-wise (made in Canada, pressed in china). Unfortuantely, you can't really get a quality board anymore since most skate companies are just in it for the profit and outsourced.
