Side Project Skateboards
Yes, there is an endless array of skate decks, decorated with world class graphic art (and plenty decorated with total garbage). The skateboards themselves though have remained pretty much the same for as long as I can remember. When a craftsman (artist) is able to take something as familiar as the skateboard and transform it into a truly beautiful piece of art, hey- it pays to take notice.
Our friend Jake Eshelman, of Procured Design, has officially moved the needle on skateboard design. Combining great American design and ingenuity with the desire to create an enduring piece of (usable) art pushed Jake to start Side Project Skateboards.
