Santa Cruz has changed the game with their completely chip-proof Powerply decks. Now, the technologically progressive deck series has a new artist: Japan’s Mako Yamaki. He may not use any fancy Adobe software to create his designs (hell, he doesn’t have a goddamn computer; he does this all freehand… and backwards) but Mako’s work is as technical as you’re likely to find.
Find out why the Santa Cruz riders love this genius so much, and get a look at his designs for Eric Dressen, Tom Remillard, and Kevin Braun, in the video above.
Santa Cruz is the oldest active hardgoods company in the history of skateboarding. And they’re down with The Berrics! Check out some of the team’s recent work with us, below:
