We tend to focus on the rider of the board, or the wheels of the board (because they’re vitally important to the sport) but we never really acknowledge the beautiful designs that often grace the decks of most skateboards.
I’ve seen many different decks and each one is unique and special in its own way. The skilled designs make for an awesome addition to the dope tricks that you see throughout a skate session.
