For Summer 2014, Canadian brand Raised by Wolves worked with American wildlife artist Antonia Neshev, best known for her iconic “Three Wolf Moon” design, to create an original “Wolfpack” graphic. Complementing a larger clothing release, Raised by Wolves produced a 7.5” U.S.-made cruiser deck, complete with custom RBW x Ace trucks and RBW x Paradise 101a wheels. To celebrate the board release, Nick Matlin of Paradise Wheels linked up with Sacramento-based skateboard legend and loose truck kingpin (and Ace rider) Matt Rodriguez to capture the cruiser rolling through the California streets. Rodriguez’s creativity extends beyond skating into music: he also provided the soundtrack to the video with his reggae/dub band, the Storytellers.
The Raised by Wolves “Wolfpack” Cruiser, RBW x Paradise “WolfParadise” wheels and RBW x Ace trucks will be available online and at select RBW accounts beginning later this month.
