These are pretty fuzzy pictures of a craptacular skateboard from Valterra. It’s a Beach Boys model, which is shocking to think that someone thought they would still be able to help sell skateboards in the 80’s. Check out the built in handles on this “Grip Stick” and the weird solid black caricature. It reminds me of the comic strip where all the characters have bulging eyes and their heads look like they are made from a pile of bubbles. I think it uses the same sort of negative color space too. Anyone know what I’m talking about? (MC does, it was John Crawford’s Baboon Dooley )The picture quality of this auction would have made me pass on posting it were it not that I’ve been looking for an excuse to repost the “Beach Boys Shred I Get Round” video, still one of my favorite things in the world.
