If you’re on the hunt for some light-hearted New York centric laughs, then Alltimers is definitely a company worth looking into. Never one to take themselves too seriously, the brand, founded in 2013 by Supreme buyer Pryce Holmes, are one of the many success stories in the recent industry takeover by skater-owned operations.
With the likes of Etienne Gagne, Zach Baker, Zered Bassett, Emilio Cuilan, Adrian Vega and Will Marshall all officially on the Alltimers roster, you know that any and all of the clips that this squad produce are ones worth paying attention to.
“You want a board shaped like a money covered Lamborghini? How about one shaped like Rihanna? If Ryan Gosling is more your bag then they’ve got one shaped like him too.”
When it comes to the actual boards, Alltimers seem more concerned with amusing themselves as much as anyone else, as you’ll be able to tell by simply glancing over their catalogues. You want a board shaped like a money covered Lamborghini? How about one shaped like Rihanna? If Ryan Gosling is more your bag then they’ve got one shaped like him too. A stack of nine chicken McNuggets? A stack of dollar bills? Yep, they’ve got those; they’ve also got a deck shaped like an old-school flip phone, just in case you were wondering.
Don’t worry though, if you want to support the Alltimers cause but require a more traditionally shaped deck then they do produce those as well, with the graphics leaning heavily on instantly recallable moments of pop culture gold from the 1980s and 1990s. This Zered Bassett pro board from the ‘Chilling Disasters’ series comes complete with the backstory…
“An underwater earthquake triggers a tsunami that creates the dope waves for the homie.”
Aside from this smirk inducing blurb, it also comes complete with an 8.3” width and a steady amount of concave, meaning there’s a nice amount of surface area underneath your feet as you navigate your way through the backstreets of Nuneaton thinking that you’re Zered Bassett in ‘Vicious Cycle’.
