"Grapes" by the Skating Friar. 8.25 (Deck) LATIN LINE
"Grapes" by the Skating Friar, Br. Gabriel M. Cortes (Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate, Catholic speaker, singer, musician, Emmy-award winner and Motherboard sponsored skater.)
Grape Deck: The vine and cluster of grapes refer the mind back to the words of the Lord who said: “I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, bears much fruit; for without me you can do nothing” John 15:5. It also points to the Eucharistic species of Wine which becomes the Blood of Christ which we consume during Holy Communion. The Biblical quote chosen to be on the board highlights the powerful intercession of the mother of the messiah who initiated the public ministry. She who is the “Stump of Jesse” Isaiah 11:1 and from this stump the vine has come forth. “The Mother of Jesus said to him: they have no wine” John 2:3
Latin: Dicit mater Jesu ad eum: Vinum non habent. John 2:3
Construction: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. Concave:Steep Width: 8.25 inches standard. LIMITED EDITION Length:31.5 inches
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.
Standard deck ships in 2 – 3 business days.
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.*
