In celebration of their 20th anniversary, 55DSL have teamed up with APN to inject their own design aesthetics into a one-of-a-kind longboard collaboration
A match made in heaven is witnessed as British brand A Public Nuisance (APN) and Italian 55 DSL merge Americana with underground Subculture. Grass and surf transform the once separate silhouettes of skateboards and longboards to produce a show stopping 55 inch longboard, cornered with wheels, for use and display on dry land.
No collaboration would be complete without a proper introduction to the world, and so APN and 55DSL hosted an event where images by photographer Ollie Groves lined the walls at the Hoxton Gallery. Stills of the boards in motion combined the fresh street brands with the settings they feel most at home in. Peckish after your time trying out your new board? Chips were the answer! Fast food for a speedy ride. Whether exercised properly or tucked under your arm, the history and future of skating on all terrain is represented well with this collection. You are bound to ignite intrigue and gain respect from all types of boarders.
