For the fist major 2018 release we’re happy to announce two artist/ am/ team boards that didn’t really fit the mold...the Tragicomic and the Meaning of Life!  

This year is also the 30 year anniversary of Ron Cameron’s ultra iconic Nothing Is Cool logo! (Top graphic of Simple Simon and Tragicomic models).  To do something special for this milestone we’ve got a very limited run of hand screened color blend Nothing is Cool t’s.

The new products are available for pre-order now but some colors and sizes are likely to sell out before they are ready to ship so don't delay.  

Oh, we've also added to our store Independent trucks, bearings and risers as well as Slimeballs, Mob Grip and rails so you can set up your reissue or rider with the proper goods. 

Look for more reissues, skartplanks and riders throughout the year and beyond.  Thanks for the support!

Dave and Ron talk about the skARTplanks hand painted Hard Times boards and drop some history

Blockhead kicks of the skARTplanks series of custom one-of-a-kind works of skate art with some custom art on 10 of the (SOLD OUT) Hard Times reissues inked by legendary skateboard artist Ron Cameron.   Blockhead owner Dave Bergthold and Ron talk about the history of the innovative Hard Times board series from 1989...perhaps the only "price point" skateboard (or any other product for that matter) to ever be "cool" (Nothing is).  Available to order Wednesday October 18th at 6pm pacific time on .
