The hardest part of flipping through her really great portfolio was to pick something we could immediately work on, her and Mag settled on the “Lotus Palm of Destiny”, which is now becoming part of the H-Street Alpha Girls line of products. It’s a colab between Lotus and H-Street and we are hopefully going to work with her on other designs as well, which we are super excited about.
Lotus has a lot to say about her art, about life and about having had a front row seat to some of skateboardings’ most awesome individuals and events at large. Here’s her thoughts on this piece of art and collaboration with H-Street…
“I want to start off by saying I’m extremely grateful for this amazing opportunity to be working with H-street on this board and to be able to showcase my art while supporting female skaters everywhere. I’ve seen how hard people work to make a name for themselves in this industry and the true blood, sweat, and tears it takes to master such an art. I’ve always been inspired by the mystical and magical aspects of life, in my art and in everything I do. I wanted to showcase that side of me through my designs while still making something awesome that women would be proud to skate on and feel badass while doing so. With this particular piece my message is that; your destiny is in your own hands, but you still have to put in the work. So whatever you do, do it 100% and watch how the universe unfolds for you.”
This deck is made by Legends Skates here in California in Addison Taylor's shape.
The bottom is a unique Epoxy laminated Everslick material that is digitally printed into the plastic that improves all Board and Lipslides. The graphic stays on and last longer than traditional printing methods. The additional Epoxy lamination also creates a stiffer and more durable deck.
Legend Skates has also created the innovative and totally unique design called Pop Wedge, which has an extra layer of dyed hardrock Maple laminated into the tail and nose, using a special vacuum technology molding process that creates a better, longer lasting pop.
We are also making it as basic street shapes in four sizes.
