We revisit these head banging Iron Maiden Hardwood Skate Decks from Zero Skateboards.
Drop that zero and get with the hero. That’s not something you’ll hear while pushing around Carlsbad, Ca. That’s because this is the home of Zero Skateboards, producers of some of the finest hardwood on the planet. The brand was founded by Jamie Thomas in 1996 as an answer to the mediocrity in skateboarding during the time and the brand is currently withstanding the test of time. The company prides itself on being built for skaters by skaters featuring one of the most dynamic pro teams in the sport. Zero really made their mark from 2004 to 2006 when they 3-peated the Thrasher Magazine King of the Road competitions. Today they are one of the more respected names in the industry.
Iron Maiden is a legendary English Heavy Metal band that dates all the way back to 1975. They are considered to be one of the most successful bands in their genre selling over 100 million copies of their albums worldwide. Two of their most popular albums, Killers from 1981 and The Number Of The Beast the following year. Aces High was a hit song from their 5th album Powerslave. The song’s lyrics are written from the viewpoint of a pilot fighting during the Battle of Britain in 1940, the first military engagement to be fought entirely with aircraft and and this Aces High Deck is our chart topper from this collection that dropped a couple months ago but recently just arrived.
