UWS specialized in a thinner 6-ply board, made with epoxy and fiberglass, making for a better and more responsive board. UWS also made this dual laminated foam/Kevlar board, where much of the board was replaced by urethane foam and reinforced with Kevlar and fiberglass.
Somewhere around 1984, Christian Hosoi blew away the whole skate industry away with his fishtail and hammerhead boards shapes, totally opening up the possibility of what skateboards could look like. There’s no doubt that T-Mag’s hexagon board was inspired by Christian’s designs. But by this time, T-Mag had designed the Hell Concave mold and the Hexagon board became very unique in its function and the way it rode.
T-Mag’s been asked to re-issue this board for years and we're finally getting a few of these from Watson. The Epoxy/Glass, Hexagon board, complete with nose rivets (there for durability) was originally remade on the original Hell Concave mold. The shape was updated to reflect the need for a bigger nose and the graphics were re-created as an H-Street board, with a modern hole pattern, so that it can be collected or ridden. It’s made at Watson Lam, with hand silk screened graphics, just like in the 80’s.
