Often as I roll through my training blocks here, I sense the contraband flows through the Southwest like Benny in a four wheeled drift through Daytona. I am not sure if this a correlation regarding proximity to the Border, or the result of public policy or what. No matter what, since Superissimo has posted me here – so far away from Superissimo HQ – as a cyclist I almost can’t help this sense of feeling on the Lamb. I mean, the border (ie; ergogenic health supplies) is only two hours away from my villa. When I consider that, I have no doubt that the weather here is why so many professional cyclists select Tucson, Arizona as their training grounds. Again, whatever. Maybe it’s just the mystic of the Southwest, I just don’t know but there is an aire here that says do what you must to survive, and when I say survive, I mean Win. Whatever. Que the World Industries “Live Juiced” Skateboard Deck offered now by Superissimo and Salty Dog Bikes.
Billy Blumpkinschwartz, proprietor of Salty Dog Bikes – the only bicycle savior of Page, Arizona’s neglected youth – “aquired” a limited selection of the Live Juiced skateboard deck. Produced by Wolrd Industries. As such, these are standard 8.25″ wide skate decks. Upon seeing a sample of the art, I immediately requested two be pulled from the quiver for myself and Peppard. Of course, one will adorn the wall of my house while the other – Peppard’s – will grace the district office of Superissimo. The remaining two are now listed on Ebay via Salty Dog Bikes and in cooperation with Superissimo.com.
The real bonus: All profit from the auction of the Live Juiced skateboard decks on Ebay will be forwarded to Salty Dog Bikes where the money can be used to purchase an extra Work station so all the groms and hacks can work on their own bikes and boards.
It’s a pretty incredible design. I’m a fan of Pulp, and this one cuts to the Graphic Noir of Armstrong’s legacy with precision; Doping control samples for each consecutive year of Armstrong’s reign, suggestive positioning of “Armstrong-like” caricature, and Ms Crow in the background with proprietary insights to Armstrong’s legitimacy. This deck is smashing. A dark connotation to the Lance Armstrong era of Cycling sport and PED use.
