Marc Jacobs: Road Rash Skate Deck

After recently being named Diet Coke’s Creative Director for 2013, Marc Jacobs continues his new year’s conquests with a 7-ply skate deck made of Canadian maple. Limited to just 150 units, the new deck is being promoted by 15-year old skater Tristen Maldonado.

Marc Jacobs - Road Rash

Marc Jacobs is one of my favourite fashion designers and I have to admit, I went on a little spree in New York last year when I saw his Marc by Marc Jacobs range. Damn. If I had brought along more money, I think I would have walked out with the entire season’s collection – including the accessories!

Now, the American designer is taking his world-famous brand into the skate world with the debut of this limited edition deck. The deck features a seven-ply Canadian maple construction and retails at just $69, and is limited to only 150 decks.
