The Need for Speed
Dang. I mean DANG. Today, Antonio Causone (grid guru, Helveticaficionado, and creator of Aisleone.net and TheGridSystem.org) tweeted few photos of the latest board he’s designed with Buddy Carr Skateboards. And, dang—DANG—it’s a real beauty.
The board is called L’esigenza Della Velocitá, which roughly translates to “Need for Speed.” And, from the looks of it, indeed it is. With a classic drop-thru shape, this baby looks like it’ll be a drifting, carving, downhill rocket. We love the graphics on the board; the flood of grey with red checkers and sparse type—definitely a nice 70s grand prix poster vibe (see below). Speaking of the 70s, what’s the “79” for? According to one of Antonio’s tweets, it’s the year of his birth.
