The “66” is the latest skateboard I designed for Buddy Carr Skateboards. It’s Buddy’s signature model, so he’ll be ripping it up on one at the pools across SoCal.
Lately, Buddy and I have been inspired by GP racing graphics from the 60s and 70s. I’ve always loved the light blue and orange color scheme of the Ford GT40 Gulf Oil, so I used that as inspiration for this board. The design morphed into the final angled version after a few rounds of ideas that played off the simple classic racing graphics. The text is set in Univers Ultra Condensed, which really compliments the design.
As always, it was a blast designing this. You can check out more photos and info or buy a complete at Buddy Carr Skateboards.

My birthday is coming up. Do you think 38 is too old to start skating again? That deck is so tight I may consider it. Ollie up! heehehe
Emily, thanks. You’re never too old to roll around town on a board.
This is really rather lovely. I still have the Hello board you did, took the dive and parted with some hard earned cash… it’s only been used a few times, it’s too smooth to get dirty. So it sits in my studio, pride of place up against the wall so you can see it when you walk in. 🙂
Oh, so tempted.
I know what you mean Graham. I have each one I’ve designed and I’m dying to ride them but just can’t do it.
I love this, beautiful work!
really nice, but the back wheels and truck rubber should be light blue…
I bought the Hello board a few months ago as my first board and I loved it. (Sadly since it was really my first board it has quite a bit of wear and tear from me falling so it isn’t as pretty anymore but still looks good). I just made the jump and bought this as my second board. Love the design, keep it up!
NYC all day everyday!
My, oh my! This makes me want to bust out the knee pads and drop in. Great execution!
