This Marc Jacob Skateboard is Dubbed Road Rash for Its Scabby Look

Road rash can be a nasty condition for skateboarders, and it also doubles as the name for this new Marc Jacobs skateboard.

Road Rash is a skateboard deck offered by the American fashion designer as his take on the increasingly popular urban sport. The deck features what looks like an abstract floral print at first glance. It's based in warm hues of pink and cream and accented by cool, minty greens.

The design appears wavy and smooth, although the accompanying video tells a different story. It features two designers dressed as doctors standing over the skateboard deck with screwdrivers. Each of them dig their tools into the paint to create added texture and jagged lines. This technique falls in line with the Road Rash title as the designers are effectively applying road rash to the deck design.
