A week away from Man Overboard’s Heavy Love release and amid the jaw-droppingly terrifying volume of bundles on offer – there are 18 configurations in total. EIGHTEEN. – the artwork skateboard shone like a beacon hope.
A picture tells a thousand words and looking at the Ultimate Bundle above, the band really have gone overboard on the merch-music mixes for the new album. Tri-colour vinyl, digipaks and cassettes are flung together with pretty much everything but the kitchen sink; think, multiple t-shirt designs, silk screen prints, drip back patches, promo posters, and stickers galore and you’ll be right on track. Thankfully quantity and quality are present in equal measures and although there’s a shit load to wade through, it all looks pretty ace.
The one number that caught my eye is the Heavy Love skateboard. This particular limited edition item comes as an 8″ x 31″ wood grain skate deck, trucks and wheels not included, and the small run of 100 have been bolted into the top 5 tier bundles. Check them out here if you fancy a browse.
As summer heats up and spectating skaters on South Bank beckons, here are six decks to flip over from the likes of Parkway Drive, Anti-Flag, and Bear Tooth.
