To keep with our tradition of signing the first batches of the reissues, this time we had to ship 100 boards to Oregon and back for Mark to sign!…so some extra expense for that but thought you’d be stoked. Limit 2 Partain boards total per customer.
A wild man on and off the board, Mark Partain tore up the pools, ramps and streets with aggression and style on his Blockhead models in the late 80’s. Released in early 1988, Mark’s first board was inked by Ron Cameron with some Native American totem inspired art paying tribute to Mark’s ancestral roots. Since Mark’s “Indian World” graphic came out later in 1988 there weren’t many made of this graphic….it’s a great one but a rare one so grab one while you can!
Mark grew up surfing and skating in Ventura California and was even one of those legendary kids that nailed rollerskates to a plank of wood to make his first skateboard when he was only 5 years old and he’s still ripping today with 55 years on board!
