Continuing their artist series program, Mekanism Skateboards reveal a new project alongside Dano-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. The campaign, entitled “Your Mercury Ocean”, references to previous sculptures made by the artist, with this latest project being even more meaningful considering his seldom involvement in commercial product. Each piece features a chrome finish with a ripple effect and almost double the thickness of a usual board, with 13-ply construction rather than the standard 7-ply. Only 90 limited edition decks were produced and will soon be available through the Mekanism Skateboards online store.
In the End my opinion on this is the 13plys used to construct this board is ridiculous and way to heavy, skateboards are meant to be skated on. Even thought this looks really dope.
