Ever since the demise of Alien Workshop skateboarders across the world were waiting for the aftermath which came in the form of ‘The Mother Collective’. Everything seemed good in the world until last month when Mother announced they had to change their name to ‘Quasi Skateboards’. Have a look at the ‘Jenkem mag‘ interview with the founder to see why.
‘Quasi Skateboards‘ main intentions are “Paying the team, independence, free boards. No rules.”. Letting some of skateboarding’s finest let loose in doing what they do best. Sounds good to me. Yes, it’s another board company for you to indulge into, which may be hard as many are popping up every other week.
But let me just put it out there… This is definitely one to watch out for. They’ve already sold 3 months worth of stock in just 3 weeks under-estimating the demand. So as you can tell they’re already flying off the shelves. Later today (20/8/15) you can expect to see Quasi on sale here at The Black Sheep Store. Hyped!
The graphics are looking dope, simple and pure yet the pro models are reflecting the pro to the best they can. Main focus at the minute is the boards but the apparel, that is still strong will increase in time. Focusing purely on skateboarders, really excited to see this company grow.
There’s also word of a video being made which is exciting. Mainly because you’ll see the likes of Gilbert Crockett, Jake Johnson, Tyler Bledsoe and a few more additions to the team in the near future shredding Quasi. Really powerful crew! It’s a shame ‘Mother’ couldn’t have been kept although the way I look at it, its the same brand, only a different name but to be honest none of that will matter in a few weeks. Keep them eyes peeled!
Still not sure what the deal is, well why not watch these two sections from the new Quasi Skateboards team members Mr Tyler Bledsoe and Jake Johnson. Jake’s section from this years Static 5 then a dope Tyler Wu Tang remix part. Take note as these two could be some of the most stylish skaters to set foot on a board. Now a Quasi board…
