Sector9 meets the Marley Family

SECTOR 9 SKATEBOARD COMPANY COLLABORATES WITH THE MARLEY FAMILY A SECOND TIME ON A BOARD SERIES FEATURING ICONIC IMAGES
San Diego, CA (May 18th , 2017)
For the second time, Sector 9 Skateboard Co., preeminent global
provider of skateboards, is partnering with the Marley famil
y, on a board series featuring iconic Bob Marley images. Designed with the legend of Bob in mind, and an eye towards
the environment, the new four board collection is constructed with 100% sustainably harvested
Bamboo. In 2011, we partnered with the Marley family on a very succ
essful line of limited-edition skateboards, and thought the timing was right to work together again, on
an updated series, says Dennis Telfer,
Sector 9 Creative Director and Brand Co-Founder
.
Bob remains an inspiration of authenticity and
equality, which is in line with the skating lifestyle.
The bamboo makes these boards cool and conscious – I love them!
adds Ziggy Marley, when asked
about his feeling on the new Sector 9 collection.
Starting this month, the Bob Marley series will be available fo
r sale in select Sector 9 authorized
dealers
,
and offers something for every riding style. The imagery also allows fans an opportunity to celebrate Bob and their love of skateboarding by hanging a deck on their wall.
The boards included are
:
Natty Dread
(26.5
) $134;
Small Axe
(32.5
) $179;
Jamming
(37.5
) $179; and
Exodus
(38.5
) $179. All boards will feature various styles of Gull
Wing trucks and either 9-Ball or Top
Shelf wheels.
