ELEPHANT BRAND X EVEL KNIEVEL DECKS... COMING NOVEMBER 2013!

If you were a kid in the 60’s, 70’s or 80’s you will know who EVEL KNIEVEL is, he was kinda a big deal.



Maybe like me,  you had the IDEAL TOYS? I got the STUNT CYCLE for Christmas one year and couldn’t wait for next Christmas to put in my order with Santa for the 
SCRAMBLE VAN.


Maybe like me you grabbed a few bricks and some plywood and hit the makeshift ramp with your skateboard or BMX bike. Next I grabbed the saw horses to make a bigger jump ramp.

It was all about upping the ante and challenging yourself to go higher, further and faster. Pushing the limits like EVEL did with every stunt. 
I guess MIKE V was under the spell of EVEL too.

It’s how all great skateboarders start out… first you learn to roll off the gutter, then a larger concrete block, pretty soon your are in search and destroy mode hunting out the highest loading dock you can get away with.

Hopefully you haven’t broken as many bones as Mr Knievel in the process?

To celebrate the legend Mike & ELEPHANT BRAND have collaborated to make this line of 

OFFICIALLY LICENSED EVEL KNIEVEL X ELEPHANT BRAND DECKS.



  • 3 in the series:
  • FOUNTAIN REGULAR SHAPE 
  • 2 DIRECTIONAL SHAPES: 
  • BIG TOP 
  • CANYON
  • Each deck celebrates one of EVEL’S famous stunts
  • Limited stock arrives in Australia NOVEMBER 20 2013.
  • All pressed with PS STIX Wood

We’ve already arranged to park some stock for EVEL KNIEVEL fans and stores that want a hot ticket item this Christmas.

Don’t miss out on this one. Hit up your local store or Goliath today!

 
By the way, The FOUNTAIN deck is a nod to Evel’s infamous Caesars Palace Jump in Las Vegas New Years Eve 1967, where he broke no less than 40 BONES!!!

If you have never seen it… here’s the clip… not for the faint hearted!
