VHS Skateboard Series by 5Boro

5boro-skateboards-vhs00

It’s been a while since I bought a skateboard but this series of VHS inspired decks by New York brand 5BORO is fantastic. If anyone knows who designed them please let me know (I searched for a design credit for awhile and came up with zilch).

*Edit – The designers behind these boards are Mark Nardelli, Matthew Tapia, and Max Vogel Razauno. Thanks to Gerry, Daniel and David who helped me track them down via Facebook.

Have a closer look at each deck below.

  • Joe

    Really great – plus I bet they just look better and better as they get scuffed/dinged up.

  • daniel ribar

    So good!

    • loved the classic tattoo designs they had for their previous series as well

      • daniel ribar

        Yeah man, always sharp work from them.

  • Taylor doran

    I love these. I think they relate well to early skateboard videos. I remember using some of these tapes to record skate tricks in middle school.

    • vhs is popular again – companies like Palace are shooting videos on it

      • Taylor doran

        ha I could totally see that happening. VHS revival!

  • Ashton Ireland

    I love the notion that you could sharpie your name onto them like old home recordings.

  • vxms

    Love them.. :)

  • Anybody know the name of the 5Boro video from the late 90s that featured Synchronicity 2 by the Police? Such a great company and video – cool decks too

180 Creative Camp is an 8-day media arts academy hosted by Canal180 in Abrantes, Portugal, from July 2nd to 9th. The event provides a unique environment for participants and invited artists to exchange experiences, learn and create together. I’ll be headed out there to do a talk at the camp and more importantly hang with the participants. It’ll be my first time to Portugal so I’m looking forward to exploring Abrantes as well.
