Custom skateboard artisan Bear Walker has announced that he is staying with the House of Ideas and will be releasing a limited edition Marvel Comics Spider-Man skateboard. Available Friday, November 25 at noon ET, the skateboard deck features “retro and comic-inspired custom artwork” created in collaboration with illustrator Rupert Gruber. In a statement, Walker said of the board, “I purposely designed the board to look like it was pulled straight out of a comic book and to fit well with fans’ Spider-Man collections.” Check out the first images of the Spider-Man deck below!
The all-new Spider-Man skateboard marks the latest collaboration between Bear Walker and Marvel, who previously debuted a full line of Marvel Comics skateboards featuring heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Wolverine, and Black Panther. Surprisingly, before Bear Walker made their Spider-Man deck, the company debuted an exclusive Venom skateboard deck earlier this year. After bringing the neighborhood’s friendly wall-crawler to life on one of their skateboards, their partnership with Marvel looks set to continue.
“Collaborating with Marvel has been a dream of mine since I first started in the industry,” Walker previously said of the Venom skateboards. “I’ve been reading the comics and watching the movies since I was a kid, so the chance to combine my craft with a pop culture legend like this has sparked a whole new level of inspiration for me. I’m excited to launch this first project and I can’t wait to share what’s to come.”
Bear Walker’s handmade skateboards aren’t limited to just original designs and Marvel collaborations, they’ve previously created limited edition boards for Pokemon, Godzilla vs Kong, and Dune. He’s also created custom boards for celebrities, including working for Shazam! star Zachary Levi, Grammy winner Billie Eilish and Aquaman star Jason Momoa (designed boards for him based on his DC Comics hero).
Bear Walker boards are made using only the highest quality maple ply. This maple allows the board to bend slightly, but remains strong for the smoothest possible ride. With patented underbite grip and five coats of clear coat to ensure durability in all weather conditions. In addition to using only the highest quality material, the company plants one tree for every plank sold. The All-American made boards are both highly collectible works of art to display while also being fully functional for skaters who want to ride.
