Spike Jonze is a powerful creative force, well known for many reasons. As a film director he has become a household name, he has made some of the most influential skateboard videos of all time and has also consistently made some of the most iconic and memorable music videos since 1992. He is also responsible for bringing Girl Skateboards into our lives. Spike Jonze was also great at taking photos and was a staff photographer for Transworld. Skateboarding is where he cut his teeth which is why this new series of boards is incredible. It celebrates his work with musicians as a video maker, using photography as the visual medium, screened onto skateboards. The images are of the Beastie Boys in 1994 shot on the set of their Sabotage video. Sonic Youth shot in 1992. Bjork from 1995. Nirvana playing live in 1991 and Karen O taken in 2004. These boards have caused a serious stir and we have received no end of enquiries about them. We can finally announce their release. You can buy yours from our Covent Garden store and our Bethnal Green store on Friday from 11am. These will not be available online. Shop for everything else we have from Girl Skateboards HERE
