SUPREME Hirst Skateboards
This past Thursday, the west side of Lafayette Street between Houston and Prince was heaving with hardcore street skaters, downtown hipsters, and quite a few art world insiders, some who got on line early in the morning and waited until Supreme threw it’s gate up at 11 to unveil their limited edition Damien Hirst skateboard decks laminated with his classic Spin paintings.
The coveted yellow deck was the first to sell out and the entire edition was gone before happy hour. Supreme held strong to the one-to-a-customer policy and wouldn’t confirm the size of the edition. The decks retailed for $88+tax. If you missed the boat on Thursday some are already flipping on eBay from upwards of $600.
