The great raconteur/author/porn specialist/general miscreant Chris Nieratko sits down for an illuminating chat with Stevie Williams in Philadelphia’s famed Love Park, a sort of ground zero for skating and home base to the skating icon and DGK founder. As fans of Williams know, Love Park was the originating locale for his 90s crew of “Dirty Ghetto Kids” that [...]


The highlight of Blackbook Gallery‘s Deathstar Blues show that ran in Denver last month are these AT-ATs constructed completely of reclaimed skateboards by artist Derek Keenan. The show’s concept was led by artist Axel Greittman‘s vision of a Death Metal-inspired Star Wars universe, although the exhibit additionally served as a first-look appearance for Vans and Santa Cruz [...]


British illustrator Jon Horner has laced out a series of Cliché skateboard decks, the theme of which applies Horner’s well known “Where’s Waldo” treatment to stars in skating culture. Pros like Joey Brezinski, JB Gillet and Sammy Winter hide cleverly in the graphics for the French decks, challenging you to find (and guess) all the possible characters. Boards measure in [...]

The perfect vehicle for your parent's funeral

Mark Flood of Peres Projects has joined forces with Supreme NYC for a line of skateboard decks that carry the subversive, slightly macabre, visible edge of wit for which the Houston artist is known. The deck is basic black on its top, with Flood’s messages splattered on the bottom. Check stores in NYC, LA or the [...]


Boom-Art is already known for putting beautiful ladies on skateboard decks. From 1970s Pin-Up Girls and Snow White Gangbangs to Gardens Of Earthly Delights, Boom-Art has this time moved onto a far more refined dame: La Dame à la Licorne (aka The Lady & the Unicorn). To capture the heavy detail from the classic work of French medieval art, the tapestry had to be [...]


A New York union is complete. NYC-bred Hopps Skateboards is gracing the face of two photo-printed decks with the work of Ricky Powell, a man celebrated as one of New York’s top street photographers (and alleged Beastie Boys towel-thrower). Of course Powell is no novice to the world of collaborations, as you may recall his awesome Rakim, Public Enemy and [...]
