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 - OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE
Our Lady of Guadalupe (The Virgin of Guadalupe) appeared in Mexico as the pregnant Mother of God to Blessed Juan Diego, an Aztec Indian, on December 9, 10, and 12, 1531. She left a Miraculous Image of her appearance on his cactus fiber cloak, or "tilma", which still exists today for all to see in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. She put an end to the bloody human sacrifice of the Aztecs and converted nine million natives in the 7 years after her appearance there.
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.
