This very unique custom was made on a Drang downhill & freeride longboard. Shaped in Utah (USA), this pro model was thought by my friend Cedric Scheers, one of the most influencial and inspirational rider in Belgium and beyond. Mata7ik loves Art Deco, and got its inspiration from so many Art Deco houses and windows in Brussels, Belgium. That was the right time to draw and paint this on a beautiful handshaped board. The use of semi transparent colours was in fact to give a churchy effect. Don't you head the choral singing ? And the riders calling you for a ride ?
