Adam Yauch designed deck graphic before he passed

It is being reported in America this morning that Beastie Boy rapper Adam Yauch left a legacy to his love of skateboarding 2 months before he died in March this year and sketched the lyrics to the Beastie’s tune “Bodhisattva Vow” across 3 decks.

The one-off series comissioned by Bucky Lasek is said to be auctioned on November 29th alongside many other musicians that include Ben Harper, Paul McCartney and Tom Petty whose lyrics etched into decks will go on sale to raise money to build skateparks in low income areas across the pond for the Tony Hawk Foundation.
