Motherboards, the pioneering brand known for its fusion of Catholic themes with skateboarding culture, proudly welcomes Mathias Ledum to its esteemed skate team. Hailing from Norway and presently pursuing studies to become a priest in Rome, Ledum brings a unique blend of devout faith and a passion for skateboarding.
In an exciting union of spirituality and sport, Ledum discovered Motherboards and found resonance with the brand's Catholic-themed decks. Unlike skateboards that often use religious themes in a mocking light, Motherboards offered Ledum a means to integrate his profound Catholic faith into his cherished skateboarding hobby.
"I never thought I'd ride a skateboard with the Sacred Heart of Jesus on it! Motherboards allows me to bring what is most dear to me, the Catholic faith, into the hobby that is most dear to me, namely skateboarding," expressed Ledum.
Recognizing the potential to evangelize skate culture through Motherboards, Ledum views the boards as a canvas to showcase the beauty of Catholicism and engage in conversations about spirituality and God. His skateboard, adorned with sacred imagery, serves as a catalyst for meaningful dialogues and an invitation for others to explore The Faith.
Skating in his cassock might raise eyebrows, but Ledum sees it as an opportunity to break stereotypes and spark curiosity. "If seeing a guy in a cassock on a skateboard is the only thing that reminds someone else about God that day, then I think it’s more than worth it," he remarked.
With Ledum's addition to the team, Motherboards continues its mission of creating platforms that bridge The Faith and contemporary culture, opening doors for discussions on Catholicism in unexpected settings.
