Not all the times but very often there is a story behind the graphics of a skateboard deck, since Natas days. The Venice local had such a feline style that had a panther on his deck. Or think of the ragdoll that represented Ray Barbee on his first Powell deck, to represent the way that this street soldier had when he was doing his signature moves on a skateboard.
On this deck there is the celebration of a friendship among Pleasure Skateboards bosses and Alex Blacks. The most crucial skateshop in Milan, close to every buzz on the streets joined forces with the ink side of the force. Being a Pleasures customer forever, as soon as the possibility arise, the shop allowed the skater / tattoo artist in charge of the studio to express his art on a graphic whose timeless flavor is appealing.
The retail unit based in via Fara 9, Milan is the OG skate & snow core shop and this is why there is such a high degree of attention towards the production of shop boards. I showed you one last month and this is another one called King Skull. Staying true to the original tradition to put skulls graphics on decks, Pleasures gave you a quite diverse range of styles to pick, if you think that the last skateboard we saw was a logo on a camo background.
Available in several measures, the one in these shots is a 8.1″. Pleasure Skateboards stay true to the game so these decks are ready to roll from the streets of Salerno, under Paolo Gianattasio feet, to the spots in Milan, with crazy tricks by Nahuel Fernandez.
Considering the years of experience of owners Cristian and Mattia I could not expect anything less than this standard of quality when it comes to skate decks and such skully subject is there to bring good luck, just like it did with World War I pilots. Well, skaters fly on regular basis on their airplanes on wheels so to keep it a little retro in this sense is not out of place.
