Ale Mazzara was a young kid from Rome, Italy, that grew up skating with Francesco Jekill Albertini, the legendary original H-Street artist, who’s been involved in the Italian skate scene ever since the beginning of H-Street in the 80’s. Ale and Francesco came to California in 2014 and T-Mag was so impressed by Ale’s skating and fun positive attitude about skateboarding that he was added to the team as the first and only Cadet on H-Street. Shortly thereafter, Francesco suggested that H-Street make a special board for Ale and other kids that need a real and high performance deck and drew a graphics much in the original spirit of the 80’s H-Street art, the Kid Kong graphic.
In the years that followed, Francesco watched Ale grow into a young man and ripping skater and also drew his last graphic, the Lion King. Ale had made the Italian Olympic team and was in Tokyo for that in 2021.
In 2022, it was time for a new one and this is Fian Arroyo’s take on Ale’s graphic. During his last visit to California, Ale and T-Mag sat down and talked through his new graphic, Ale wanted to have something that was more adult and celebrated not just his Italian roots but also, his Sicilian heritage.
Fian and Mag struggled a bit to come up with a cool and suitable version of the classic three legged Sicilian emblem but not too much for the world class artist. We called the artwork and deck “Sicilian Order” for all the obvious reasons.
The deck is available in street pop shapes 8, 8.25, 8.5, 8.75 and Ale’s special Park&Street Shaped deck that measures 32.5 x 9.25, with a 7 Nose, 6.75 Tail and a 14.5 Wheelbase.
This deck comes in a variety of dyed and natural veneers and if you’d like something specific, just note that in the order notes and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
