Marble Rollholz Skateboards

Skateboarding has been around in its modern form for just about half a century now, and while you’d think that’d be enough time to run out of ideas when it comes to designing new and striking boards, new ones keep popping up. Most recently, a German designer by the name of Tom Wilhelm put together the Rollholz, a retro board with a marbleized paint finish.

Handmade in Deutschland, this cruiser serves as a kind of homage to the old school decks that were first used to cruise around the Escondido reservoir in sunny Southern California during the 1970s. What makes these pop, however, are the marbleized wood tail. In some ways, these boards are to skateboarding as Best Made is to axes. Simply apply a beautiful paint detail to an already well made product and, boom, you have something really unique on your hands. You can get these in a variety of woods and apply a handful of colors to the board. Prices for these decks (trucks and wheels included) start at $181. [Purchase]
