There’s a lot of skateboards that come and go, and before they all get sold, I end up buying them. Every paycheck, I buy a skateboard or two, and I go forward with creating a small inventory as I try to build for a skateboard shop that is going to come through later in my years.
This time around, I was able to pick up a skateboard that is no doubt going to be worth a lot down the line, especially if I can get an Eric Andre autograph. I doubt I’ll get that, but what I will get is this board. Birdhouse, you know the company that was started by Tony Hawk, has a guest skateboard deck for the professional comedian, and hilarious talk show host, Eric Andre.
This is done in the classic Bird man style, and it shows off the comedian with a good character, and drawing, and well, this is one hell of a board. If you’re interested in riding, it’s 8.5 x 32 and has some good pop, good graphics, and concave. If you want to hang it on the wall, it’s well worth it, because hey, it’s Eric Andre on a skateboard! What can I say? I’m a sucker for skateboards that have a celebrity lean on them, and this is as close as you’re going to get to modern skateboarding and pop culture, without going too deep into the sell out files.
All kidding aside, Birdhouse x Eric Andre is only available for a limited time, so if you’re a skateboarding fan and happen to love Eric Andre, here’s a skateboard deck for you to jump in on.
