In honor of Thanksgiving, here’s a cornucopia of counterfeit skateboards. There’s the Roger/Roskopp on the left, a Vallely ripoff that says “sports,” and tying in nicely, another World Industries knockoff, a generic Flameboy. The two on the left are from the same company, Rolls Racer. The funny thing about the Flameboy knockoff is that it’s a mid to late 90’s era (or later) graphic on a bad 80’s style board. The Flameboy was spotted in Peru of all places. (Thanks to Seth) The fake Vallely hails from the land of Ebay, and the Roskopp is from a French auction site. (Thanks to David Maes)
This “Sports” board sold for a whopping $29, which is really a steal considering it’s entertainment value.
The Roskopp/Roger board came with a nice (?) tote bag. Pretty upscale for a knockoff. Only 5 Euros as of this writing.
Flameboy. Not much I can say about this. It’s only here because the other two are.
