Ron Allen is the original skateboard artist and one of the first skaters that applied a creative mix up to his skateboarding, with music, mixed media arts and just a creative take on skateboarding, given he was on the forefront of street skating. Years ago, Ron created his own artwork for this Street Series deck, along with some prose;

 

A NEW CREATION
A WORLD WITHOUT MUSIC WOULD CAUSE TOTAL FRUSTRATION
THE SECRET OF HEADPHONE NATION
THE TIME IS 4050 AD
BODIES AT THE NECK, NOW INTERCHANGEABLE
HEADS HAVE THRUSTERS THAT MOVE AROUND INDEPENDENTLY SO HEADS WITH PHONES FLY AROUND
MUSIC IS A MUST, IT MOTIVATES AND MOVES YOU
THE SECRET OF HEADPHONE NATION
HEADPHONES PLAY MUSIC FROM ANY SOURCE
WHERE WOULD WE BE WITHOUT MUSIC
THE BODY CAN BE USED FOR SO MANY THINGS
INTERCHANGEABILITY HAS WORKED WELL IN 4050
JOIN RON ALLEN'S HEADPHONE NATION
MAKE YOUR OWN WAY AND MAKE YOUR OWN MIND...

 

With the advent of portable music players and over time, Ron’s noticed that kids more and more are rocking headphones while skating.  What used to be a community skate session have become more of a collection of individual skate sessions at the same time.  Skateboarding has always been heralded as a sport and lifestyle of individuality, not as a team sport.  So is this a bad thing?  We don’t know and neither does Ron, who is just making some artistic light of the situation with his Headphone Nation art.

Ron’s pioneered a number of different brands in skateboarding, all with one unique and creative take after another. Of course, his contribution to H-Street is nothing short of legendary, with a lengthy list of creativity that continues to define H-Street in significant ways.

Ron's Headphone Nation deck is built in San Diego at Watson Lam.
