European skateboard industry veteran Dave the Chimp aims to share the original and rebellious spirit of skate culture with the release of this villainous skate deck. As a tribute to one of the most iconic film monsters to date, this extremely graphic board features Godzilla.

Dave the Chimp, who specializes in graphic art and works as a graffiti writer, partnered with Solid Skateboards to create this visual masterpiece. While skate culture is still a popular subgroup, the skateboarding legend wants today's skateboarders to grasp a bit of the grit and roughness that is retro skate culture.

Creating a fun collection of decks for kids, Dave the Chimp developed the Godzilla skate deck as an eight-inch board made from seven-ply Canadian maple. The skate deck features the Japanese monster spewing people, tanks, trains and whales.
