Lovenskate 20th Anniversary Skateboard Deck 8”
20 years ago almost to the day, 'Lovenskate' first appeared as the title on the cover of a Zine all about travel, skateboarding and art... all the things stu loved, and still loves to this day. From there, the Zine output gradually increased, taking writing and illustration submissions, screen printing the covers and stickers in his parents garage, and eventually making t-shirts. Always with the ultimate goal of one day being able to screen print boards like the masters 'Screaming Squeegees' in California.
Fast forward to today, and stu couldn't be more proud of how things have turned out. There's a team, just as he dreamed, like one big family that are going from strength to strength. There making solid products, including their own sustainably produced cut & sew garments, and the board printing is really coming along nicely! So, stu figured it was a great opportunity to celebrate some of the favourite boards from over the years, by producing a run of 'Mash-up' graphics. 3 weeks printing, a very complicated graphics chart, about 50 screens and a LOT of ink! In total, there are about 40 different variations of 14 graphics, complete with a tip-to-tail '20 Year Anniversary' top print. To add to the fun, the boards will be selected at random and 'blind bagged', a surprise graphic in every one.
These anniversary boards are for the first time both printed and pressed in the UK, using the mighty Bedford based Gnosis factory, which is also producing BLAST and CLOWN to name but a few. These boards were produced in a really limited number, and because of the rising costs of materials, the amount of energy and time that went into them, and the fact that they are 100% manufactured in the UK, they are more expensive than our previous boards. We hope you understand, and enjoy this Autumn Anniversary drop.
