Citizens of Humanity presents a limited-edition skateboard deck with skateboarding legend Danny Way and beloved t-shirt line Deer Dana. The collaboration was a natural evolution from the success of Danny’s participation in Citizens of Humanity’s “Just Like You” philanthropic film series, which profiles creative visionaries from around the world who inspire the brand, and the collaboration with Deer Dana for the brand’s 10th year anniversary. Brainchild of Dana Veraldi and Kevin Tekinel, Deer Dana is best known for their original t-shirts that pay homage to cultural tastemakers in fashion, film, music, art, and sports most-recently featuring Citizens of Humanity Founder and CEO, Jerome Dahan.
The skateboards are manufactured in house from start to finish using 100% North American / Canadian Hard rock Maple. They are pressed with glue specially designed for skateboards. All our decks are pressed using a cold-ress technique with 60 tons of pressure. The skateboards are pressed per mold, to insure concave consistency. We use the best glue available on the market, it gives the boards the best balance between pop and flexibility. We use 7plys per deck: 1/16th thickness for our core and face grade veneers in combination with crossband veneers 1/24th thick, this combination gives the thinnest, lightest, strongest board possible. Most decks are pressed and stained top veneer and one strained core. Decks are finished off with 3 coats of lacquer gloss.
* Size: Regular / 8.125
* All decks are made from 100% North American / Canadian Hard rock Maple.
* A core veneer has grains going length wise across the board from nose to tail.
* A crossband is a veneer with grains going across the width of the board.
