St. Benedict of Nursia (c. 480–547 AD) is regarded as the father of Western monasticism. Dissolution with the immoral culture in Rome where he was attending school, he became a hermit living in a cave for several years. A community of monks asked him to join them as their abbott. He agreed, and eventually established several monasteries in the region of Subiaco. Each monastery was led by an abbot, following a common rule of life. Around 529 AD, he founded the famous monastery of Monte Cassino, which became the center of Benedictine life and the birthplace of the Benedictine Rule.

St. Benedict’s Rule is still followed by Benedictine monks and nuns worldwide. St. Benedict's feast day is celebrated on July 11 in the Roman Catholic Church. Benedict’s life exemplifies dedication to faith, community, and the pursuit of a balanced spiritual life. His stories, particularly the miraculous interventions, highlight his sanctity and the divine protection that surrounded him.

The artwork includes all of the prayers and imagery from the front and back of the St. Benedict Medal.

In the body of the the board is an image of St. Benedict holding a Crucifix and a book inscribed with a summary of The Rule of St. Benedict “, Ora Et Labora.” This is latin for “Pray and Work.”

God’s protection of St. Benedict: The Raven and the Snake

The top of the board features am image of a raven flying away with a piece of bread. After St. Benedict became an Abbot a jealous priest tried to kill him with poisoned bread. St. Benedict prayed over his meal and a raven swooped down and took the bread from him before he could eat it. On another occasion, some fellow monks attempted to kill St. Benedict by poisoning his wine. When St. Benedict prayed a blessing over his poisoned cup it instantly shattered.

This is original artwork by the Catholic Artists Shanti Guy.

Construction: 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.


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.

Standard deck ships in 2 – 3 business days.


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.*
