Solitary Arts‘ first and most popular skateboard to date, Big Red, is now available for a very limited time as a standalone deck. The board, inspired by a thrift store find in San Francisco years ago, mimics the plastic banana board cruisers of the ’70s, but with a contemporary feel. Made with seven-ply maple and updated with a slight concave and an upturned nose, the board hits eight inches at its widest for the perfect cruiser style while still being totally skateable.
Rad screen printed graphics by Solitary Arts’ co-founder Geoff McFetridge, combined with the footprint-shaped custom grip, guarantee it will look just as sweet on your wall as it will under your feet. Previously only available as a complete setup through Solitary Arts directly, you can now pick up the deck itself for only $50 through Huckberry, the recently-launched flash sale site that features guest buyers for each collection of goods. This round, picked by CH contributor Mike Giles, is available only through this Thursday, 18 August 2011.
