FOUNDATION SKATEBOARDS ... New stuff almost here including J Grant Brittain Swank Push decks!

FOUNDATION SKATEBOARDS! There is some killer stuff on it's way


One thing I'm really excited to see are the J. Grant Brittain decks featuring his iconic black and white SWANK PUSH photograph. This is my all time favourite skateboard shot.

The story behind it is it was run as the cover shot of
TRANSWORLD SKATEBOARDING MAGAZINE in 1987.






It was the first time they had steered away from the usual 'action shot' cover and people were up in arms. Is that a real 'trick' or something that anyone could do?

Either way its a beautiful shot with the diagonal shadow on the wall making for a perfect contrast cover shot that captures the soul of skateboarding.

Old or new? You have the choice:

Classic 80's street shape 10 x 29.5" or


Regular modern deck 8.25" x 31.875


Both adorned with this iconic image.

Skate em' if you want, but I think this one would look fantastic as a wall hanger!






Also on this hit, new:
JU JU SERIES DECKS
COREY DUFFEL ONE OFF'S
NEW VERTIGO PRICE POINT DECKS.

Good stuff, Keep on Rolling!
