I probably have just been living in some sort of hole in the ground for many years, missing out on smaller companies which make great gear supporting skateboarding the way it should be supported. So this morning I happened to discover the Cold War Skateboards website. They come from Portland, Oregon and have a very cool line of products which definitely take a punch at the current political leader in the US of A.
Good to see someone doing some graphics which also have something to say and make a point of letting it be seen.
The longboard shown above is the ICBM STAGE III – 2008 Model – pressed, shaped and printed in Oregon! This board is not a flexible cruiser. It’s got the same deeep concave as the standard short boards.
Max Width: 9.75″
Sidecut Width 8.4″
Wheelbase: 19.75 ”
And these two beauties had to be shown as well: the anti-Bush board and a tribute to the one and only Naked Raygun band out of Chicago (second time this band has come up this weekend, coincidence?). All in all a company to check out and support!
