This statement may sound ridiculous, but we wouldn’t print it if we didn’t think it was true: Skateboarding has always been a guide to what’s cool in the world. Since the early days of street skating, each generation of skateboarders has unwittingly educated the tastes and fashions of the next generation. Growing up they were like our collective big brothers and sisters, putting us on to what had some flavor and what sort of sucked.
For this entry of One Sheet, we hit up Nick Jensen, the mastermind behind Isle Skateboards. Isle’s one of the most popular “homegrown” European board brands out today and has always had a strong art direction led by Nick’s creative side. For those who don’t know, Nick is actually a proper art school grad and has had numerous art exhibits over the years.
He seemed like just the guy to ask for some recommendations, so here they are for you to feast on. Enjoy!
