Big Flirt by Ronnie Fairbanks Skateboard by Trickster Company
Designed by Tlingit Artist Ronnie Fairbanks of Craig, Alaska.
The Tlingit and Haida Indian kinship systems are divided between eagle and raven moieties. All clans fall under either Raven or Eagle moiety that form two halves of a whole Tlingit or Haida society. Traditionally Ravens would marry Eagles and when members of one moiety are grieving, members of the other offer support. In this way and others the moieties maintain balance and social structure.
Skateboards are cold pressed and constructed of 7 plies of 100% American/Canadian Maple (wood species-Acer Saccharum). All decks are 8.0" size. Made in the USA.
About the Shape: Steep nose and tail with a deep center concave.
Abrupt transitions abound; these help to stiffen the deck and give it a quick snap. Nose and tail flip start quickly after the outer truck holes exaggerating the steepness.
