Limited Edition “A Secret History of the Ollie” Skateboard Decks



The second edition of
A Secret History of the Ollie skateboard decks are now available in two designs. The first is a 1979/1980-styled old school “pig” deck and the second is a contemporary Street style shape.

This second edition comes in a bright tangerine orange. The earlier first edition decks were a lighter peach orange and they were sent primarily to all the Kickstarter supporters. Those decks are completely gone and considered collectables. Don’t miss out on this edition before it also sells out.

A Secret History of the Ollie skateboard decks are a collaboration between Paul “The Professor” Schmitt and Craig B. Snyder, and manufactured by PS Stix in Costa Mesa, California.

Every culture has a creation myth, and skateboarding is no different. The Ollie forged a new identity for skateboarding after its invention in the 1970s, and it lies at the root of nearly every significant move in street skating today. This groundbreaking no-handed aerial has also affected the evolution of surfing and snowboarding, and has left a permanent impression upon popular culture and language. This is the story of the Ollie, the technology that set the stage for its creation, the pioneers who made it happen, and the skaters who used it to start a revolution.
