Yes, skateboard. Think keyboard, my original form of art.

This damaged Maru board was up the street outside of The Antique Skateboard, a shop that opened in Ottawa just about a year ago. They said I could have it.

I need it if for no other reason than I can study the design, top and bottom, the top side especially to see what the gripping material is like.

I have trucks for the bottom and a skate shoe for the top. Not for this board, however, rather a keyboard I plan to recreate as a skateboard.

One thing about stretching the limits, I have to say that I learn something new everyday.

What would I know about skateboards if I didn't have the idea to create art out of not using one.
