ALONG LAUNCHES AN EXCLUSIVE BOARD IN COLLABORATION WITH ARTIST CARLOS TOLEDO @T_DIARY FOR SUMMER 2016
AxT LIMITED EDITION skateboard, is a collaborative effort between San Diego based skate and surf house ALONG and artist CARLOS TOLEDO from Barcelona.
ALONG was established in 2014 in Encinitas ( California ) as a way to live a passion for skate an surf but inspired by nature making handmade limited edition boards with sustainable materials and old school techniques .
CARLOS TOLEDO is a Barcelona based artist and illustrator and designer who every morning makes all of his followers happy with one of his drawings full of good humor. Because a day starts better if it starts with a smile.
In December 2015 CARLOS TOLEDO was in a business trip all over California when ALONG´s founder and creative director David Lopez challenged him to collaborate with any guideline but being related to nature.They both sat at David´s backyard in San Diego while listening ska & rocksteady music and speaking about the feeling of riding old school shapes when the idea suddenly pops up. The result was a magnificent, unique shape and beautiful art wood. A limited edition skateboard represented with the wildness a rider needs to blend with nature and have fun, even in the jungle. A real monkey ride!
