The Canadian skateboarder developed this ingenious design to benefit both beginners and experienced skaters, helping them improve their understanding and performance of various tricks. The Theory Map surface features a directional graphic that indicates the front and back of the board, ensuring skaters maintain proper orientation, even if they set up their trucks differently or ride the board backward.

The design also includes a series of white lines, circles, and other shapes that act as visual cues for foot placement during tricks, corresponding to key areas needed for flicking and popping. Anderson explains that these visual markers help skaters position their feet correctly for different maneuvers, improving balance, control, and consistency. For instance, specific geometric areas are designed to facilitate stable pops for tricks like 360 shove-its, while others are optimized for flicking to ensure the board flips correctly.

One of the most interesting markers is the red magic line, indicating the optimal area for popping the board to achieve a full flip. Another unique aspect is the “snooze button,” a small triangle area where flicking results in a slower flip, helping skaters understand the nuances of trick execution. Additionally, the grip tape includes forward and side-sweeping lines that mark the board’s concave, crucial for maneuvers involving rotations and flips. Anderson notes that the inspiration for the Theory Map came from his own experiences and insights into skateboarding. He emphasizes that every skateboard already has these invisible lines—the Theory Map merely makes them visible, aiding skaters in visualizing and understanding the mechanics of their tricks.
