Primitive Skateboarding is proud to announce the release of its second board collaboration with 2Pac, in celebration of the late musician’s birthday - June 16. A longtime favorite photograph of Primitive Skateboarding Co-Founder Andy Netkin, the iconic shot used for this latest effort summarizes the everlasting activist spirit of Pac, captured through the lens of renowned photographer and life-long skater Mike Miller. Produced in limited quantities, the Primitive Skateboarding x Mike Miller x 2Pac deck is now available through primitiveskate.com, the Primitive flagship boutique, and through select brand retailers worldwide.
In conjunction with the project, Primitive Skateboarding also releases a short video with Mike Miller as he guides us through the day he shot 2Pac for his 1994 group effort, Thug Life: Volume 1, in Los Angeles, California.
"Since Primitive Skate’s inception, each Primitive pro’s first board has had a graphic that represents their spirit animal. Don Pendleton has been one of my favorite artists for as long as I can remember; his artwork has always been iconic and usually centered around the animal kingdom, so when we started talking about having a guest artist reinvent our animals, Don was the first person who came to mind. I’m excited to announce that initial idea has come to life in the form of the Pendleton Zoo”
