Hard Times O modern 9.25” • pre-order now!

Pre-order now!  Shipping in mid/end July.

Yes it is still Hard Times! 

OK this is the shape that I designed, and am currently riding myself and love...and I thought you might want to rip it as well.  It’s real close to the Hard Times 1 modern we did a while ago but the tail has been trimmed down just a bit so the rails are straight instead of a slight sidecut.

Free! Now over 20% larger for the same price!  The graphics are based on the classic original unnumbered version from 1989 but enlarged and reworked a bit so they go down onto the tail.

 To liven up the graphics even more we’ve got plans for some rad color fade tints, the wood grain will show through like a stain but the rails are colored as well.   Some bright colors but just ugly enough with the brown stains to be called Hard Times.  Beautifully shitty.

 NOTE:  These are sold as assorted 1. positive print (black art) tint fades or 2. assorted negative print (white art) tint fades (Art may fade as well...example: black to dark red) .   If you have any color preferences write your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices and we'll do our best.  Check out the multi-board compilation to see what we might make but subject to change...but they'll all look good!  Natural also available.
