Neil Blender’s “ Rocking Dog” G&S Graphic silk screened on a MODIFIED 80’s redesign by Neil himself. The deck was reshaped with an emphasis on leaving out unnecessary wood to meet the needs of modern skateboarding. This G&S board will shred the hell out of your favorite parks, pools, & ramps and more. This is a 7 ply maple deck, made at Watson Laminates in San Diego, CA. The graphic is Silk Screened on the bottom with a “Modified 80’s” Gordon & Smith logo on the deck. The Rocking Dog deck features wheel cutouts for better wheel clearance and less chance of wheel bite.
Neil Blender joined G&S in the early 80’s and the influence of artists like Pablo Picasso often can be spotted on his board graphics. Neil’s skating was way ahead of its time and the amount of tricks he had invented is astonishing. He came up with a name “No Comply” after seeing Guerrero doing it. If you enjoy doing blunt to fakies on quarterpipes, thank him. Nosegrinds on quarterpipes back when no one even considered it? Yes, it’s Neil Blender.
