Board Collections - Evan Hecox

There's just something about certain artists and skateboard graphics. It's so hard not to skate a board for me, even if I have a new one set up already. I love the whole set up process. I've done my time share of working the skate shop and getting Sick of setting up boards and taking grip tape off little kids decks...Raw hands from the grip and all that...But I love new decks, new grip and razor blades...cutting the grip perfect, no air bubbles and feeling that brand new sticky on the feet! Love IT Man!
This pic is more about not putting the board together but just looking at the imagery. I use to have a hefty collection of decks, things get hard and you loose a few and you will always think"WHAT AN IDIOT! - I wasn't thinking" This series below is one of those that isn't going anywhere. It reminds me of being a little kid and looking at the decks and just tripping on the coolness of the graphics. People always gotta say, "it gets scratched off anyway man..." but the fact that it's under those tricks I did, is still in my head and it gives me that inside, mental hype when I look down at my board...kinda like a pair of skate shoes you really love shredding in...The might be beat up, but they give you a skate boost of some sort, then that's the feeling... Well, I just had to post this board collection i just bought. My wife is a cool artist so she would fight me if I set one of these up, so they won't be going anywhere...Cause I could easily set one up and go skate it...I like good shapes and good graphics that's just me...That's the skate kid in me.
