Anti Hero X Slam City

Posted on

To help us celebrate our recent collaboration with Anti Hero, DLX flew Raney Beres out here from SF to come and visit us. As luck would have it London was rainy for Raney but we made the most of it. We hit up Mwadlands days before it was demolished, then sheltered in House of Vans. For the 2 hours it was dry Raney got to sample some ancient Crystal Palace crust. This clip was filmed and edited by Mark Jackson. The music is Are You Around by Dead Arm on Permanent Slump Records. Having Raney visit was a pleasure, he killed it wherever we took him and was stoked to be visiting London…

Slam team rider Blondey McCoy came and skated Mwadlands and Div Adams missioned it down from Scotland in time for the visit to House Of Vans. All of this action ensued because of a Transatlantic conversation. Working with DLX continues to be a pleasure. Our West Coast cousins are keeping skateboarding very much alive and we have forever been fans of what they are doing over there. When Jim Thiebaud mentioned that Anti Hero were keen to work with us on a special project we leapt at the chance. We organised teaming up with them on some exclusive boards, T-Shirts and Hoods…

Since Anti Hero’s inception we have had their boards on the wall and an astronomical amount of Classic Eagles have sold over the years. We are beyond stoked to now have our very own. When thinking of designs we quickly settled on using the Classic Eagle as a template and it didn’t take long before her majesty the queen, our very own Anti Hero, commandeered centre stage. Todd Bratrud produced this collaborative graphic and Liz’s corgi’s joined her for the ride…

This twist on a timeless classic looks good on everything, it’s even Gerwer approved. Getting to work with one of our favourite companies to ever do it is a dream come true and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Getting to see people wearing the tees and hoods or riding one of the boards is going to be an honour. Massive shout out to Jim Thiebaud and everyone at DLX and Anti Hero for making this project such a pleasure to work on and a huge thanks to Raney Beres for coming over here and making things happen. Here are some photos from his visit to Mwadlands shot by Henry Kingsford…

These reinforce just how gnarly everything he did that day really is. Any of you lucky enough to have skated this park know. If you haven’t, then take it from us, some wizardry went down, on and within those walls which join it’s folklore. We hope you’re as excited as we are about this collaboration, it’s turned out better than we could have imagined. You can shop for everything Anti Hero X Slam HERE
