6-ply hardwood maple. Blind EL2 skateboards are made with only 6-plies of 100% North American Hardrock Maple in the EL2 boards. Eliminating a ply shaves weight, but these 6-plys boards actually have significantly more strength and pop than standard 7- ply decks because they added a triaxial epoxy glass top sheet and use super-bonding resin epoxy adhesive. All decks purchased come with free Skate Warehouse Die Cut, True Grit or Jessup Griptape. In some cases, background colors may vary.
