“Fear is the mind killer. We are afraid of falling, of hurting ourselves. Fear is the predecessor of pain. Physical and psychological pain. We are afraid of not skating good enough, not looking good enough, not being good enough. We are scared of aggressive, judgy cis-het boys and men. We are anxious of being laughed at, being misgendered, of being excluded. this is our fear. And we face it everyday.” – Florence, Amelie, Melina, Lisa and Lara
Within the Vans Coco Loco weekend we showed some love teaming up with our friends from Skatesencia, hosting a special edition of the FLINTA “Conversation Circle” at Skatehalle Berlin. We are deeply touched by the results and the awareness, honesty and loving translation of the chosen themes onto the skateboards. We thank all participants and look forward to more projects together. We also want to thank you! Because of your support we were able to donate 200€ to Skatesencia’s “Flintamentals”!
- 7 ply Canadian maple
- single/cold pressed
- resin epoxy construction
- 3 stained layers
- colors variate
Curare skateboards are made of Canadian maple, whose wood has always been the best for skateboards due to its stability and durability. The decks are single pressed and by the use of epoxy resin plus the slow drying, without the supply of heat (cold pressed), our decks have a strong and especially durable pop. Not only our Art Prints are very colorful, but 3 of the 7 layers are color stained (bottom, middle and top), too. The color tones may vary.
