Nothing says California cool quite like a classic skateboard deck. Inspired by the original “sidewalk surfboard,” this particular collaboration between Almond and Shakastics serves up a minimalist design for maximum impact. It’s the perfect way to coast through summer.

Almond X Shakastics Skateboard


Locally crafted in Costa Mesa, California, each deck is built to last, using the finest quality materials. I especially appreciate the natural beauty of the exposed wood. It’s a functional — and eco-friendly — means of cruising to the corner coffee shop, and is sturdy enough to be passed down from kid to kid.
