people make it sound so easy to get custom cut oversized plexi but i still haven't seen a local place that does it. add in $25 per piece in shipping charges for ordering online. I'm getting all my oversized stuff done cheap for about $40 each but i'm going to have to go pick it up to avoid all those shipping costs.

not creepy. really cool actually. aaron told me it is based off a japanese myth of a warlock/wizard that can transform himself into a nine-tailed fox, as well as a beautiful woman that will seduce you in the woods and suck out your life force. also, the poster features a chop (stamp) that says "black osprey" in japanese.
its actually the fox that transforms into human form.

This might be old news here, but have you seen pictures of the wood engraved skateboard that Horkey did? I wish i had the extra cash to pick one of them up. Maybe they will make a print of it or something.

do you have their email-address? their homepage, including the contact sheet, seem to be broken 99 percent of the time. one time the send button actually worked, but i haven't heard from them since and that is some weeks ago.

Yeah, that is a beautiful board. If only I had the cash.

Can anyone figure out what it says on it?

it says "zygomaturus"

its an extinct animal that was like an oversized wombat. The skull on the end of the board is of that animal.
