All Motherboard skateboards are made from 100% American/Canadian Maple (wood species—Acer Saccharum) and are cold-pressed to ensure the wood is not subjected to high temperatures that can degrade wood fibers. The uncut decks are then allowed to cure for seven days before finishing. Each deck is made with skateboard specific glue made by Franklin. Our standard deck size is a mellow 8.0, 31.5" in length.
CUSTOM B.V.M. IMMACULATE HEART CLASSIC WHEELS:
Our custom wheels are composed of high-grade T.D.I. polyurethane with a focus on rebound and abrasion resistance. A great all-around wheel, the Motherboard B.V.M. Classic is 99a durometer, white 53mm. (Set of 4 per complete). Plus our custom graphic is like NO OTHER.
Motherboards is extremely proud to feature Tensor Mag Light Ultra Trucks on our premium completes. These are the lightest and most durable trucks ever made. Our trucks are silver 5.25s. (Set of 2 per complete). Tensor Trucks was founded by professional skateboarder Rodney Mullen in 2000.
PREMIUM SKATEBOARD BASICS HARDWARE:
Our completes are held together with Superior Product's Premium Skateboard Basics black allen mounting hardware, heat treated black steel bolts and nuts. (Set of 8 per complete).
Motherboards is super stoked to feature "Made-in-the-USA" Oust MOC 5 Street bearings on our premium completes. Oust bearings are the fastest and toughest bearing in the industry, lubricated with oil for instant speed out of the box. (Set of 8 per complete). OUST - 'It's all about speed"
CUSTOM MOTHERBOARDS GRIPTAPE:
Our Motherboards custom griptape is made of premium grit adhered to a waterproof backing. Each Motherboard premium complete includes a die-cut cutout of the Cross and M from the back of the Miraculous Medal. The large M stands for Mary as Mother, Mediatrix. The Cross and bar represent Jesus' cross of redemption. A bit of sk8 love for your deck from your Mother.
The artwork on the board undersides are custom illustrations made exclusively for Motherboards. They are designed specifically for imprinting on our board products. You will not find these illustrations anywhere else, they are truly unique copyrighted designs.* Each design also includes a somewhat hidden image of the front of the Miraculous Medal and the back of the Benedict medal. We think of these as our "secret deck weapons".
Current designs include:
St. Michael the Archangel, Sacred Heart of Jesus, Immaculate Heart of Mary, Crucifix, Our Lady of Guadalupe, St. Benedict Sword, Prince of Peace, Agnus Dei, & Divine Mercy.
DIGITAL PRINTED TRANSFER:
The highest level of detail is achieved using the DPT process. Specialized coatings are used to bind the ink DIRECTLY to the skateboard deck. Our deck designs are bright, vibrant and iconic. It's a big uplift from most of the deck art out there.
Special thanks toBr. Gabriel M. Cortés of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate (aka "The Skating Friar"), whose advice and recommendations resulted in the build-out of our Motherboard's premium completes.
DECK ART ICONOGRAPHY - AGNUS DEI
Agnus Dei, Latin for "Lamb of God," referring to Jesus as the perfect sacrificial offering for the sins of humanity. Deck features many iconic images:
"Ecce Agnus Dei, ecce qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis." Latin for: "Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world."
John the Baptist’s Testimony to Jesus (John 1:29-34)
29 "The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him and said, 'Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.'" 30 "He is the one of whom I said, 'A man is coming after me who ranks ahead of me because he existed before me.'" 31 "I did not know him, but the reason why I came baptizing with water was that he might be made known to Israel." 32 "John testified further, saying, 'I saw the Spirit come down like a dove from the sky and remain upon him.'" 33 "'I did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, "On whomever you see the Spirit come down and remain, he is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit."'" 34 "Now I have seen and testified that he is the Son of God."
Each Motherboard's deck also includes a somewhat hidden image of the front of the Miraculous Medal and the back of the Benedict medal. A little love and blessing from your Mother.
