Scumco and Sons is a small skateboard company ran by my friends Nick and Ben here in Pittsburgh. I’ve long been a fan of what they do and was more than flattered when they asked me a few months ago about possibly doing a Guest Board for them.
But it wasn’t easy.
It seemed like back when I was a kid, skateboarding was more of a nickel-and-dime affair… but nowadays, it’s a multi-million dollar proposition. The Chrome Ball Incident Guest Board is actually the product of extensive marketing research in addition to a lengthy consultation process with various creative creation departments around the world, all coming together in an attempt to zero in on the elusive razzle-dazzle that the skateboarding youth of today really wants.
And I couldn’t be more stoked!
These limited edition shred sleds come in 2 shapes, both of which pack enough death, blood and bullets to send your Bunsen over the Junsen, guaranteed.
Perfect for tail-drops and at only $45 (U.S. shipping included), it’s definitely the nice price that won’t be giving your wallet the lube job!
Act now and we’ll even throw in some of our very own Grabracadabra free-of-charge! Get a handle on those pesky airs presto-quick with our multi-colored grips that rip!
But on the real, thanks for all the support over the years that has led to opportunities to do things like this.
As the sun begins to set on Chrome Ball (not too soon), this is one project that I’ve really been looking forward to and I honestly couldn’t be more hyped about it. Even though they nixed my idea for using Boneite, this was a lot of fun to do. The boards are excellent; high-quality, Pennswood construction at a decent price with graphics that really seem to capture what skateboarding is all about.
And I still can’t believe we got to make that Grabracadabra shit.
Big thanks to Nick and Ben over at Scumco and Sons for doing this.
And thanks to all of you for turning what is essentially some dude with a bunch of magazines into something that still baffles my wildest dreams.
