the 1976 Banzai SK8
push the metal
In 1976, Banzai Inc. released one of the most timeless skateboard designs in the culture’s history. Made entirely from anodized aluminum and featuring one of the world’s first double kicktails, it went on to become an icon of sidewalk surfing.
With its colorful, high grain varnish and Space-Age design elements, Banzai embodied an aesthetic much closer to the era’s zeitgeist than other skateboards of its time, leaving a short-lived but memorable imprint in the culture of cruising concrete and early pool skating. 43 years later we are celebrating its legacy by releasing a reissue of the brand’s most original shapes.
Limited to an edition of 50 boards per color & size, each Banzai skateboard comes in a high-grade collector’s box featuring a signed art print by one of the following artists: David Carson, Jay Nelson, Nathaniel Russell, Todd Glaser, and Cole Barash.
