Autumn Garage Skate Decks Giveaway

August 3rd, 2010



Up for grabs in the first Wanken giveaway are two skateboard decks that I designed for a company out of Salt Lake City. Sadly the company is no longer in business and I believe these decks are some of the very last ones left. The size of the first is 7.75″ and the second is 8.00″.

To enter, just comment on this post and leave your name and email address in the respective comment form fields. The two winners will be drawn randomly on Monday, August 9th, 2010. If you are a winner I’ll contact you to let you know, so hurry and get your entry in!

If you wouldn’t mind, share this link with your friends. I’m planning more giveaways for the future so keep stay connected through RSS or twitter.

  2. Mark says:

    Count me in, I’d like to have one. Awesome work!

  3. Isaac says:

    Looks great! I love the detail.

  4. Really nice board design, shame about the company going under, I would love these one of these (I should be so lucky)

    Any one who loves skateboarding needs to see the film: “Lords of Dogtown”. A documentary style film on how Skating started.

    (See the rest of the parts to the film from the youtube link below)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjePaGEG9xo&feature=related

    And please watch a short film series by AARON ROSE titled “D.I.Y. AMERICA“. Basically an extension of the previous Beautiful Losers film & traveling art show, the shorts further examine the fertile artistic culture of skateboarding and the influence its had on modern underground visual culture, with additional feature episodes on Os Gemeos and Swoon.

    Enjoy

    Great simplicity and vibrancy.

    Yea Dogtown is epic. Also check out the dogtown and z-boys doco. Additionally, Writer/Director Larry Clark is heavily influenced by the subversive skating culture and has made some fairly controversial films, one of which being one of my favourite films Ken Park. Wazzup rockers delves deeper into skating but be prepared for some very strange but very cool film making.

    Peace

    Lovely work. If I win, mine’s going on a wall instead of beneath my feet :)

  7. One of these would look killer next to the original Powell Peralta Caballero hanging in my office.

  65. Joe Hallock says:

    Time to design some decks of my own – these are the hotness

  66. Matt W. says:

    I’ve been playing a lot of Skate on my ps3 lately, this would be great to get back involved in skating. Great work man.

  67. The Wallbanger says:

    Do you know how ridiculously gorgeous that black and yellow paint would look smeared on my pool coping!?! I’ll take the 8″ deck, thanks!

  68. Edmundo says:

    Sweet decks!!! Perfect time to replace my old decks before the winter…

  69. tasos says:

    nice now I have to learn how to skate

  70. Chris says:

    Looks sick, im too old to ride but would definitely put it on wall.

  71. Great design! Unfortunately as a skateboarder, I couldnt hang it on a wall, specially since my latest deck isn’t in the best of shapes right now. It would certainly improve my skateboarding, and if I win I can make it eternal by sending you a flick of a nicely performed skate trick here in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

  72. Chris Black says:

    so rad. Good job man!

  73. David Castillo says:

    That’s a really nice graphic! That deck in 8.00 would be so rad!

  74. Mike Loveless says:

    Would love one, nice graphic!

  75. Those are beeeeautiful!

  76. Perry Schebel says:

    clean work; well done.

  77. Alejandro says:

    Great design! I love skateboard design work.

  78. What a sleek design. I love things fashioned from wood and the wood grain on those boards is superb. A real example of excellent craftsmanship

  79. Duane Brown says:

    Love the designs and hope I win. They would look awesome in my new home office.

  80. Jaire Berkel says:

    those boards are sick.

  81. Jaire Berkel says:

    that board is sick

  82. Laine Kelly says:

    I’d shred it.

  83. Jon says:

    Looks great!

  84. Mikael says:

    Oh wow, these look fantastic. I’d seriously appreciate one of these.

  86. REMY Romain says:

    Sick boards, mine just broke yesterday … as my knee …
    Hope i’ll get one of these, the 8.00″ would be wonderful …

  87. Chris Moulton says:

    Good work. They came out really nice

  88. Alex Nassour says:

    This deck is cool, but I really don’t need one. Good work though.

  89. Camila F. says:

    So cool! They look amazing, congratulations!

  90. Dhruv says:

    Great design, shame they aren’t in business anymore.

  91. GWOOD says:

    Booyaa.
    Happy times & Donkey Sauce.

  92. great decks, great color combination, i want one!! to replace my old one ;P …

  93. Ian Houghton says:

    There’s also a pretty cool video about skateboarding in NYC by HBO that I was linked to fairly recently, can’t remember who by though. Check it out: http://www.hbo.com/video/video.html/?autoplay=true&vid=1086486&filter=how-to-make-it-in-america&view=null (click on ‘USA’ if you’re in Canada)

  94. motherworm says:

    Epic.

  95. Joe says:

    It is almost sinful what would happen to those decks should I win them! My 12 year old snapped his board grinding on a concrete curb, and these last of their kind decks would NOT be packed and sold 20 years later to a collector – they will be used. The kid has some nice Tensor trucks and Spitfire wheels that would bolt right on! Within a few hours of their arrival … at least one of the boards would be flying down the sidewalks and streets in the neighborhood. Yeah, these are truly beautiful boards. I hope they find a home where they will TRULY be appreciated.

  96. Jason says:

    I would probably get back into skating if I had a fresh deck!

  97. Jake G says:

    Well done man, they look good. I just moved into my own place, and am desperately in need of some objects to hang on those naked walls.

    Not saying I have anything against naked walls!

  98. Pat Zimmer says:

    This would look fresh on my dorm wall this fall, great design.

  99. Adam says:

    Lovely design

  100. Henry Lum says:

  112. Matt McIver says:

  113. Gregor says:

    This is realy something special. Very nice I like it.

  114. Preston Brigham says:

    It’s been awhile since I’ve stood on the ol’ wheels, but these would be a good incentive to start again.

  115. Mark eeeeeee says:

    Ha! most comments EVER!

    Looks like I’m not the only one in need of a fresh deck.

  116. Mark says:

    Want to break it in so bad!

  117. Anna says:

    I loveeeee the Autumn FEELLLL!

  118. It’s about time, I feel like one of those decks belongs in my possession.
