Limited to an edition of 50 boards per color & size, each Banzai skateboard comes in a high-grade collector’s box featuring an art print by one of the following artists: David Carson, Jay Nelson, Nathaniel Russell, Todd Glaser, and Cole Barash.

Artist #1 - David Carson

In 1976, Banzai Inc. released one of the most timeless skateboard designs in the culture’s history. Made entirely from anodized aluminum and featuring one of the world’s first double kicktails, it went on to become an icon of sidewalk surfing.

Limited to 50 pieces per color & size.

We spent decades preserving one of the largest collections of original vintage Banzai skateboards. The more boards we gathered, the greater became the urge to actually bring this classic icon back on the streets.

With its colorful, high grain varnish and Space-Age design elements, Banzai embodied an aesthetic much closer to the era’s zeitgeist than other skateboards of its time, leaving a short-lived but memorable imprint in the culture of cruising concrete and early pool skating.

43 years later we are celebrating its legacy by releasing a limited edition rerun of the brand’s most original shapes.

Limited to 50 pieces per color & size.

The most durable collector’s item of all time.

Two of the legendary board shapes were reproduced in collaboration with the rights holder of the Banzai trademark.

A classic design upgraded with modern production techniques and high-end materials for maximizing the joy of surfing sidewalks.

Hand-brushed and made entirely from anodized aluminum, the boards come with grippy urethane wheels, ceramic bearings, lightweight trucks, and stainless mounting parts, preparing them for a long life in harsh beach conditions. A custom-designed tool in a classy leather case is part of every Banzai skateboard.

Due to the hand-brushed finish, the board can
be skated without grip tape.

David Carson

David Carson’s revolutionary perspective on typography and layout has received global acclaim. Though he began developing his rule-breaking style at Transworld Skateboarding Magazine in 1984, it was when Carson became art director of Surfer Magazine in the late 80s, that he’d hone the ‘vernacular’ typography and fractured images-style that he is synonymous with today.

From former pro surfer to one of the most influential graphic designers of his generation, Carson subsequently art directed alternative music/lifestyle magazine Ray Gun, before establishing his own studio, David Carson Design, in New York. His work has garnered 230 awards and, owning a house overlooking “the best wave in the Caribbean”, he still rarely misses a swell.
