Once upon a time #skateboard graphics didn’t come out in a series. Graphics, at one time were designed to last beyond the scope of seasons and trends. At one time graphics were a true expression of the individual who’s signature graced the product. There are instances where modern graphics reflect these sentiments, but they are few and far between. At the time when skateboard graphics weren’t  subject to the collective series entire product capsules including tshirts, stickers, hats, wheels, hoodies and more were produced using the those graphics. In this picture is a hat that was produced in conjunction with my first pro model for @realskateboards in 1991. My mom still wears this hat while she’s tending her horse and while doing other household chores. My first board debuted at a time when #skateboarding was entering a major transition from vert skating to street skating. During that shift much was compromised and much was gained. One thing that was lost on our generation and subsequent pros was the timelessness of the designs that graced many of the pro models of the 80’s generation decks. This is not a complete thought on the subject as many of the boards of the 90’s had iconic imagery and meaning and were very individualistic. The transition was conceived nevertheless and much of what’s out now is generic by comparison. #throwbackthursday #realskateboards #90sskateboarding #tbt ✌❤🍕 #thankyouskateboarding
