Christmas gifts for skateboarders – Santa Cruz hat
On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
Whilst dwelling on the seemingly omnipresent threat of global nuclear war is hardly festive – this Santa Cruz Atomic Peace cap could still be a winner as far as a stocking filler goes. I mean, if we’re all going to die soon, the least you can do is attempt to come through with a nice hat for the apocalypse, right?
The hat you’re looking at here is part of an alternatively-themed offering for the Holiday season, whereby Santa Cruz have just released a new limited edition clothing capsule featuring a homage to Jim Phillips‘ original graphic for OG Santa Cruz Skateboards pro Jeff Kendall. Originally inspired by the omnipresent threat of all-out global nuclear conflict that hung like a cloud over 80’s America, Phillips original artwork references an 80’s interpretation of Atomic Apocalypse with Tron-inspired colours and a partly demolished White House, complete with an ironic peace sign.
Basically, if your gift recipient either skated in the 80’s, or is one of those people who for some unknown reason wants to relieve the 1980’s (usually a sure sign that you didn’t live through that period) then you’re onto a winner here.
Might as well check out this Jeff Kendall part too whilst you’re at it – just for the sake of chronological clarity of course.
