The Solitary Arts x Big Red Complete · 2005

Regular Price $ 475.00

2005 deadstock Big Red complete, designed by Yong-Ki Chang.
The inspiration for this board came from a random find in the outer Sunset district of San Francisco, years ago. I picked up the original which had, “BIG RED” across the top-deck in die-cut grip.
The Solitary Arts version borrows from the Big Red in shape and size. I wanted a board that conjured-up the innocence and fun-times of our past but built and taken into consideration todays technical specifications, so, for the Big Red, I added concave and a bit of upturned nose/tail. 7-ply Hard-rock Maple which features a mini-tail. The tail is much shorter than your typical skateboard, which forces you to rethink how you ride.

“The Solitary Arts is about triggering the paradigm shift, about looking beyond the definitions of what skateboarding is, and what a skateboard is. Skateboarding is moments between tricks, its different boards for different skate spots, sometimes it’s trick-less, it’s about sometimes riding wheels that are not so hard and loud that you can’t hear yourself think. It can be silent no-tap ollies and carving in a way you can only do with soft wheels. It’s about a quiver…” – Geoff McFetridge
