"Colorado" by the Skating Friar, Br. Gabriel M. Cortes(Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate, Catholic speaker, singer, musician, Emmy-award winner and Motherboard sponsored skater.)
Colorado Deck:The Mountains, the clouds, the pine trees, the Columbine state flower and the Colorado flag adorned and sanctified by the name of Jesus at the center with our great American Flag and Pledge of Allegiance all express our heartfelt gratitude, love, patriotism and appreciation to God for manifesting His beauty, majesty, and fidelity in all that He has made for us and for providing us with so wonderful a country and so beautiful a state.“I lift up my eyes to the Mountains; from where shall come my help, our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth”. Psalm 121
Latin: Levavi oculos meos in montes, unde veniet auxilium mihi? Auxilium meum a Domino, qui fecit caelum and terram.
MOTHERBOARDS PREMIUM COMPLETES:
7-PLY MAPLE DECKS:
All Motherboard skateboards are made from 100% American/Canadian Maple (wood species—Acer Saccharum) and are cold-pressed to ensure the wood is not subjected to high temperatures that can degrade wood fibers. The uncut decks are then allowed to cure for seven days before finishing. Each deck is made with skateboard specific glue made by Franklin. Our standard deck size is a steep 8.25 31.5" in length.
CUSTOM B.V.M. IMMACULATE HEART CLASSIC WHEELS:
Our custom wheels are composed of high-grade T.D.I. polyurethane with a focus on rebound and abrasion resistance. A great all-around wheel, the Motherboard B.V.M. Classic is 99a durometer, white 53mm. (Set of 4 per complete). Plus our custom graphic is like NO OTHER.
Motherboards is extremely proud to feature Tensor Alloy Trucks on our premium completes. Our trucks are silver alloy 5.25s. (Set of 2 per complete). Tensor Trucks was founded by professional skateboarder Rodney Mullen in 2000.
PREMIUM SKATEBOARD BASICS HARDWARE:
Our completes are held together with Superior Product's "Premium Skateboard Basics" black allen mounting hardware - heat treated black steel bolts and nuts. (Set of 8 per complete).
ANDALE BLUES SKATEBOARD BEARINGS:
G5 precision ball bearings for a true roll and higher speeds. These feature high carbon, chromium alloy bearing steel races for high strength to resist cracking and contact rolling fatigue. With the added bonus of removable frictionless rubber shields for easy cleaning.
CUSTOM MOTHERBOARDS GRIPTAPE:
Our Motherboards custom griptape is made of premium grit adhered to a waterproof backing. Each Motherboard premium complete includes a die-cut cutout of the Cross and M from the back of the Miraculous Medal. The large M stands for Mary as Mother, Mediatrix. The Cross and bar represent Jesus' cross of redemption. A bit of sk8 love for your deck from your Mother. **Effective Jan 2021, custom grip is unavailable from our manufacturer (due to Covid restrictions in the factory), it will be replaced with blank grip until full notice.)
The artwork on the board undersides are custom illustrations made exclusively for Motherboards. They are designed specifically for imprinting on our board products. You will not find these illustrations anywhere else, they are truly unique copyrighted designs.* Each design also includes a somewhat hidden image of the front of the Miraculous Medal and the back of the Benedict medal. We think of these as our "secret deck weapons".
DIGITAL PRINTED TRANSFER:
The highest level of detail is achieved using the DPT process. Specialized coatings are used to bind the ink DIRECTLY to the skateboard deck. Our deck designs are bright, vibrant and iconic. It's a big uplift from most of the deck art out there.
Special thanks toBr. Gabriel M. Cortés of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate (aka "The Skating Friar"), whose advice and recommendations resulted in the build-out of our Motherboard's premium completes.
