Designed to imitate the texture and look of real skateboard griptape, the effect was achieved by printing a photo of the griptape using raised ink. www.fusionsurfskate.com
The blocky abstract skateboard graphic is based on an overhead view Fusion’s skatepark obstacles. Transparent ink was used to let the natural maple woodgrain of the deck construction to be part of the design.

Proper ballerina-like form is the only way to really do this trick. The right weight distribution, angle of approach, speed and leanback allows this seemingly impossible trick to magically go. Ben Grant did a bunch of them while filming for Big Trouble in Little Vegas, a Greenville NC skateboarding film. Here is the main shot and the behind-the-scenes shot, which is so much better in capturing the session and radness of the trick.
