We have been happily riding together since the summer of 2002. She was created by Manik Skateboards under their Wildlife Preservation Project. Her graphics depict an African Savanna complete with elephants and a scorching sun. She has many dings and cuts but I still think she is beautiful. Possibly even more beautiful because of the scars. Her Venture trucks have remained strong throughout the years………holding up through numerous soggy Oregon days. Her wheels are 62 Kryptonics and like little baby clouds they provide the smoothest ride possible. The bearings were given to me by a strange man from Eugene claiming they “came from a really fast computer”. While this is still a bit of a mystery to me, they have been rolling strong for the past 8 years! I like to take her on rides during my lunch break, blasting through the Pearl District like nobody’s business. When not in use she is the perfect foot rest at my work desk……my feet resting comfortably until our next lunchtime cruise.
