skateboard is nothing new or radical these days, unless it is motorized or something and the top dollars that you shelled out for the trucks and tiny rolling stocks ain’t going to make you stand out as far as aesthetic is concerned. the only thing that’s going get you the attention and possibly make you feel good about it is the deck. at this point, you can either choose to go the graffiti graphic way or take on a more classy path like the James Perse Limited Edition Skateboards. drawing inspirations from the 70s skate decks, each deck is handcrafted from solid walnut planks accented with solid wenge and paired with high performance trucks and wide polyurethane wheels – vintage style, no less. choose from two models: longboard for casual cruising or freestyle deck for some free spirited freestyle skateboarding. available through James Perse’s official website with price on request.
