Mother Collective RIP as Quasi Skateboards is born

quasi_skateboards_mother

The guys at Mother Collective ran into some legal nightmares only a few months after launching their new skate company and were served up a cease and desist letter. Like any name thesedays, it’s tough to find one that isn’t owned by someone else, even if it’s not for the same goods, but it looks like they’ve nailed the issue head on.

You can imagine the amount of stress this would have caused but they have fought it and re-launched this week under a new name, so welcome Quasi Skateboards and their new first run of decks that look incredible.

Nothing has changed other than the name so look out for these colourful gems in your local skate shop.

Long serving Scottish skate shop Focus have collaborated with Mogwai on a series of limited edition skateboard decks and t-shirts, celebrating the band’s 20th anniversary. Whereas Daft Punk’s latest skateboard attempt was a cruiser, these are the real deal.

Printed in limited numbers, each deck costs £49.95, short sleeve tees £16, long sleeve tees £18, and will be available via Mogwai’s online store and Focus’ online shop and in store at their Edinburgh shop from this Saturday.

£5 from every deck sold will go towards the GUSM74 skate park project in Glasgow. Grab them quickly.
