Today we are dropping six of the rarest boards in the entire archive. ALL MEGA GRAILS. Every one of these is an absolute grail. They ALL happen to be some of our all-time personal favorites as well. Each one of these exact boards was exhibited in the Beautiful Losers exhibition - so the provenance is impeccable.
The first board today is the 1997 Chocolate Paulo Diaz Portrait model. This is from the Portrait series which was the first series executed by artist Evan Hecox. The series included pro models for Gabriel Rodriguez (RIP), Keenan Milton (RIP), Mike York, Chico Brenes, Gino Ianucci, and Paulo Diaz. Hecox went on to become the artistic director for the brand which continues today. Evan also did the Chocolate wordmark/logo in his trademark hand written script. The partnership between Chocolate and Hecox has produced some of the most famous and important board graphics in the history of skateboarding. This board is one of the rarest and most sought after that he's ever done. Excellent condition with some minor storage scuffs. We are very bittersweet about releasing this one! Sigh....
