When I was out in Tokyo last year for Pow! Wow! my friends and I went out to visit Japanese artist Haroshi at his studio (his photo of us) and he gifted me this bullet made out of skateboards. I chose from a whole bunch and he could immediately tell what decks he’d used to make it based on the colours. I believe this one was made out of old Enjo boards. Anyways he’s one of my favourite artists and Alexander Mitchell just released a nice video portrait of him working in his studio which you can watch on Booooooom TV.
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).
Have a closer look at each deck below.
