Copenhagen-based skateboarding shop Streetmachine teamed up with the Danish artist duo named Andreas Schmidt and Jens Hüls Funder to create a special series of artist edition skate decks. They are produced as a limited edition and will be only available at Streetmachine. The inspiration is pretty simple. It is contemporary skateboarding. The designs play on the topic of what perceived authenticity is and what this has to do with skate culture.
This new collaboration is titled Surfgear and yet again another great example how skate culture and art are coming together. Through a mixture of eco-activist rhetorics and the cynical aesthetics of e-commerce, the artist duo aims with to de-romanticize the notion of skateboard culture. All three decks are available online and in-store at Streetmachine.
