We chose to produce skateboard decks because to us, it's such an inspired canvas because of what it represents and the values it's enabled culturally. It's gritty, it's fluid, and people can do things with them that are ridiculously bold and borderline insane, but even then it's become a massive movement that spawned others.
This Way - is the first deck to be released in the Art On Deck series. Literally breaking down the wall that kept these two genres apart. This defining collaboration paved the way for other innovations in popular culture.
Specifications: 32.25" in length and 8.5" in width. This 100% maple wood skateboard deck comes with a custom "This Way" photographic print - signed by Russell Simmons.
