Clay wheels and hubcaps

Nash skateboard, clay wheels and hub caps

Here’s an interesting piece of history. Aside from looking really sharp, this vintage Nash skateboard features clay/composite wheels and something I’ve never seen on a board from this time period, wheel covers, although some people would have you believe these are a recent invention. Check out the auction while it lasts for some larger versions of the pics. A really nice board here.

  3. I remember Alva came out with some buttons that fit their wheels in the early 80s, they made some great wheel covers.

  4. Does anyone remember the 80’s Nash skateboard deck called Dog Cheese?

    • Yeah it was my first skate board it was a hot pink color and it was a huge hunk of wood compaired to todays decks.I wish I would have kept it I hated but loved it.

  5. How did they come up with that name? Did it have to do with LA’s jazz fusion supergroup named Dog Cheese?

    One time, the local newspaper came to my high school to find out what wacky lingo the kids were using. We made up ridiculous shit. One kid said “dog cheese” meant “really cool.” About six months later there was a Dog Cheese skateboard at our local skateshop. I always wondered if Nash read that article.

  6. I had a dog cheese. I also loved and hated it! My parents bought it for me at Costco and it was all they could afford. All my friends made fun of me for it cause of the name (and it was a piece of crap with no concave whatsoever) I didn’t care though cause all I wanted to do was skate for about 2 years before that. I rode that thing non stop until the tail was gone and I eventually replaced it with my first “real” board, a Santa Cruz Jeff Kendall. But really when I look back at it all, that Dog Cheese board was one of the best things I remember about my childhood.

    • Brad Dorfman from Vision picked up a ton of these ridiculous, cheap ass Chinese completes aka (Dog Cheese) for under $5 a board back in the mid 80’s. Skateboarding was at its peak so he placed an ad in the skate mag with a $100 price tag on the Dog Cheese skateboards to fool buyers who didn’t know any better into thinking the skateboards were worth a lot more than they actually were. Costco fell for it and bought a ton of them from him for $39 a piece. Gotta love that Dog Cheese.

    My first brand new board was a Dog Cheese, white with orange ribs,stop bubble,etc. At second grade i was getting to the top of a six foot halfpipe so i became a cult favorite of the big kids with real boards.

    The wheels that came with never coned despite the relentless sliding I did,they were indestructable! I wish I had a set now.
