Check out this great skateboard design, called Hello. It is a collaboration between California based skateboarder Buddy Carr and New York based graphic designer Antonio Carusone. This edition is strictly limited to 100 skateboards. What always bugs me, whenever I see such awesome skateboard design: how can anyone actually ruin this piece of art by riding it and grinding down some handrails!?! I would just buy one of these in order to put them on my wall. Here is a short description of the board and some more details can be found on Buddy Carr’s website.
“Built around the simple idea that form follows function, Hello is not just another skateboard wrapped in a pretty package. Hello has been well thought out and designed for getting everyday skaters around the local campus, onto the board walk for surf checks and for casual rides at the local skate park. Hello’s smaller deck size allows it to store easily in lockers, under desks or small spaces. It’s softer wheels provide good grip, while also absorbing the bumps along the road. The trucks, with their ultra turning geometry and high rebound urethane bushings, allow for quicker turns, all of which add up to a fun and highly enjoyable ride.”
