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.
The bigger the horns, the bigger the threat. Although Aries rules on his natural district, it knows that Taurus would not necessairly welcome anyone on his perimeter. It’s hard to compete someone with such a cool piercing in the nose.
Someone smart once said: “We are not doing things because they are easy. We are doing them because they are hard.” Looking up in the night sky should not make you feel small. Remember that we are all built from the stardust. The space is just a playground. Your hard work will pay off and the people you love will always be there for you. Just set course for a mutual target and concquer other solar systems togehter. Your strenght and sharp mind may scare some people off – try showing some more compassion for those who need more time. They want to rule the world too.
I am a master of arts by education. On a daily basis, I design magazine covers, books, CDs, event graphics, illustrations, visual identification and posters. One of my design goals was to develop a graphic for a skateboard. I was all the more happy when I got an e-mail with a proposal of such cooperation. The task was to design an illustration of one of the zodiac signs.
I chose the bull because I’m under its mark. Thinking about the project, I was wondering how to present it, in what space should I embed it. I decided to connect it to the galaxy, the cosmos and make a cosmic project. I made an astronaut out of a bull looking for other signs of the zodiac. He is sort of an explorer. He has a spacesuit on his head and is placed in a spaceship. The whole illustration is saturated with colors, I added a lot of patterns and some decorations that are characteristic of my works
The work from a totally different planet. Thank you Ewelina!
Featuring a sandwich construction of a lightweight wood core surrounded by hardwood laminates, fiberglass and a layer of carbon fiber, the new Lombardi Pro longboard deck provides you with the appropriate stiffness and damping abilities that will withstand the challenges of fast downhill skateboarding. The specially developed sandwich construction creates a thicker center base that stretches throughout the whole length of the board and slightly thinners at the edges which creates bigger wheel wells. In result, the construction not only lowers the weight of the board but also creates bigger wheel clearance to eliminate wheelbite if paired with big downhill longboard wheels. For added durability, Patrick’s Signature Longboard Deck Model is further reinforced with ABS protective sidewalls on the wheel wells, nose and tail that prolong the board’s life and protects the edges in situations when you can’t stop it from flipping over.
Shape & Profile
The Patrick Lombardi Pro offers a directional shape with a total length of 93.4 cm (36.77 inches) and a variable wheelbase ranging from 62.23 cm – 66.23 cm (24.5 inch – 26.07 inch). As the widest board in our collection, set at 25 cm (9.84 inches), its wide platform caters to various shoe sizes and eliminates toe and heel drag for those with bigger feet. Completed with a top-mount truck mounting system, the Lombardi Pro offers a more direct turning response and better overall control when picking up speeds, railing corners and doing long slides. The versatile design of the Patrick Lombardi Pro Model features a comfortable concave to assure you always have the perfect foot position and full contact between the soles of your shoes and the board when longboarding. This is paired with a slight rocker for fast transitions between heelside and toeside slides and an 8 mm micro-drop that will keep your feet safely locked-in and ready to throw a slide whenever you need to – perfect for when you really plan on sending it.
The Lombardi Pro signature longboard deck was created with fast freeriding and downhill in mind. However, to keep it versatile on the streets or even your favorite DIY park it features a nicely designed high kicktail to elevate your tricks to new heights and make cruising to your favorite spot even more fun!
