Wolfgang teams up with old friends…legendary street skater and artist Natas Kaupas, and equally legendary skateboard photographer and photo editor Grant Brittain…to create the SKATE ’86 print; a photo-sublimated print of the classic Natas photo shot by Grant in 1986, an era which documents the birth of modern street skating.
“In the end it’s all about the landing”, says Grant of the photo. “In most cases the attempt doesn’t matter if the trick isn’t landed.” Grant continues, “There’s that moment when the wheels connect to concrete and a surefooted skateboarder rolls away to victory.” This photo, pulled from a sequence, certainly captures that moment.
For us at Wolfgang it’s a dream fulfilled to bring together our passion for product and the influences that have shaped that passion for many decades. Your dog probably doesn’t street skate so he may not care, but at least you can enjoy this slice of cultural significance as you take him out to sniff the world and make his mark.
