Deck of the Week : Real Hanging Klansman


Company : Real 
Skater : Jim Thiebaud
Width : 8.25 
Construction : This popsicle version of the classic Hanging Klansman reissue is another limited run of 300 boards that sends a portion of the decks proceed to the Johnny Kicks Cancer Foundation which is dedicated to helping kids with Leukemia. This came out first in a retro pool shape a few months ago as part of the 20 year anniversary celebrating Jim's relationship with the Real brand. Incorporating social messaging into graphics was a huge part of the industry and skate culture when this was first issued and the stoke that this board gives me wishes that trend made a reemergence. Everyone who wished they could have gotten one of the originals that the dudes at deluxe were nice enough to send us will be happy to know that we have a couple of these and none of them are spoken for so come grab these up and own a piece of skate history.
