After their collaboration in 2005, Mekanism and Invader joined forces again. This time Invader created three original and unique skateboards for Mekanism. Each deck is covered by a mosaic made of real tiles and is signed, titled, dated and comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist. “Matrix deck” is the first out of the three original and unique skateboards created by Invader for Mekanism. It’s composed of the same red and blue tiles used in 2005 by Invader to create the original mosaic that was photographed and printed on each of the 100 Mekanism/Invader limited-edition skateboards. The eyes of the space invaders on “Matrix deck” are composed of mirror tiles.
“Above the city deck” is the second out of the three original and unique skateboards created by Invader for Mekanism. It’s composed of black and white micro tiles.

Skateboarders weren’t worried about cops on this afternoon. One annoyed neighbor allegedly threatened to kill a group of skateboarders and attacked them with an aluminum bat last week for doing tricks near the steps of his home, the police said. The enraged man “decided to take matters into his own hands,” cops said. The skateboarders claimed he attempted to crush their knees with the bat. They also said one swing of the bat hit a skateboard, then sprung up and hit one of skateboarder’s knees, cops said. He also tossed one of the skateboards over a fence, the victims said. Responding officers took the bat from the suspect. He was booked on assault charges and for threats against life, police said.
A 23-year-old man was arrested shortly before 11 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 24, after allegedly striking another man over the head with a skateboard.
The victim was standing in front of KeyBank at East Holly and North State streets when he was hit, apparently unprovoked, with a skateboard, said Mark Young, spokesman for the Bellingham Police Department. The victim, who had a large bump and a cut on his forehead, was treated by medics, Young said. He provided a description of the suspect, including what clothes he was wearing.
The suspect was later located carrying a skateboard at East Holly and Railroad Avenue, Young said. Daniel Meador was booked into Whatcom County Jail for second-degree assault and an unrelated Department of Corrections warrant. Meador and the victim both appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, Young said.

What is the best skateboarding trick ever? Nobody can really say, but many have tried. Nothing gets a better chance at picking the best than an epic video mashup. Except maybe a powerhouse triple stack of them.

No clear favorite yet, I guess I’ll have to slack off and watch them all again…
Sorry, if you are looking for weed, you are not going to find it. On the other hand, if you wanted some high-speed, full-pipe skate action, we have you covered. Evidently there is a hardcore underground and urban skateboard scene in Finland that defies gravity.
