Alternative Longboards x Zodiac

We are born with a sign. Stars overlooking our lives form maps, guiding us through voyages of lifetime. Each of us has its own emblem, proudly representing position of the Sun throughout the year.Since the ancient times it is believed each zodiac depicts our behaviourand having deep knowledge of the stars could forsee what is yet to come. And to this day they leave a special marking on our characters. But years ago who understood the planets, ruled the civilisations. On a dark night with clear sky we can admire the very same view our ancestors once did, and connect with the same paths our zodiacs travel for us each day.

May your plans and people you meet always be in favour of what you are looking for.
Because everyone is born under a lucky star.

 

Virgo

Rising from our bow for the lion king, let us take off our hats for the Virgo and catch the last warmth of summer. Focus. Look into the future and make use of the days still left to write legendary stories. With your skills, with your attitude, there is a whole planet to conquer. Don’t be ashamed of mistakes – they only happen to those who move forward. Your eager to make things better will take you further than the stars.  Perfect balance will flow not only in mind but also through every angle move on your board. Make sure to sparkle this grace out and check each board for a perfect match.

We are delighted to share a personal story about her adventure with Alternative Longboards,

“I know Alternative brand from my own experience – because when I started longboarding around 4 years ago the Alternative deck was my second board, but first “dancing” deck so since then I’ve fallen in love with longboard dancing. When you asked me to take part in this project I was totally happy and wouldn’t even dream before about making my own design for a longboard deck.”
