coming in a couple weeks and a hella huge big thanks to mike, clifford, and the bl’ast! boys for collabing on this deck. so fucking hot, it’ll sting!!! take it now, or don’t ever expect to touch it again!!!!
Well, again here at Big Mess aka, the dream factory… haha.
Through a couple phone conversations back and forth John revealed to me that he always wanted to be a gorilla.
I am sure that it probably has something to do with the way he attacks his skateboarding or the way he has attacked every single occasion in his life to make himself ones of the gnarliest people to ever grace a skateboard or strut across this earth.
The cosmic forces must have been aligned properly for this, since SF to NY transplant and artist Chris Main had the idea of taking the famous Tobin Yelland shot of John in front of the Slayer sign and turn it into what you see here. A pure and classic depiction of honest to goodness radness and tribute.
I would like to thank Chris Main and John Cardiel for making this a reality and a very honorable dream come true for Big Mess.
This is planned to be released for an early to mid spring time. I will keep this updated with more info as it comes down the pipeline. Thanks.
THESE WILL BE UP ON THE SITE IN A FEW WEEKS FOR SALE OR YOU CAN STAKE YOUR CLAIM HERE:
MEMBERSHIP DOES HAVE IT’S PRIVILEGES AND AGAIN, I WOULD LIKE TO PERSONALLY THANK SCOTT FOR DOING SUCH A BANG UP JOB ON THIS DESIGN. WHAT A REAL TREAT.

in more related current news, the sample shape have arrived and are being pressed right now. hoping to have the in hand and ready to go under foot, hopefully, by the middle of next week. deck is 9.25 wide with an adjustable wheelbase of 14.75-15.25. FUCKING SICK! GET ON ONE AND YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED, NO MATTER WHAT YOUR STYLE OF SHRED.
and that’s not all, we have been busy, busy, little beavers here this week. well, maybe busy, busy. but the beaver part decided to stay home this week… <--- ha ha, that's a joke. don't get too bent out of shape.
i figure it is only proper etiquette and good form to give a tip of the proverbial hat to the living legends of skateboarding. If it weren’t for these guys breaking barriers with their boards, hopping fences, finding spots, barging pools, and searching out terrain that had never been thought of before, where would be we be now with skateboarding, or would we even be skateboarding? so, again i give a pleasant nod to the fore fathers of our sport and americas favorite past time and life style.
or in the wave of the future, types.
