The Tony Mag Kid’n’Cross deck was originally drawn by Francesco Jekill Albertini in the later 80’s. It came out after the Alien and was made by Taylor-Dykema and UWS. It was originally laminated on the Hell Concave and while it’s been re-issued in various forms a couple of different times since the 80’s, this is the first time it’s re-issued as a premium high-end product, complete with hand silk screening and various high-end treatments. This is also T-Mag’s favorite graphic from back then.
The Kid’n’Cross has been updated in a variety of ways to function as a collector wall hanger as well as a great Park&Pool and features the newly developed Supreme Concave, T-Mag’s modern update on the original Hell Concave.
The Kid’n’Cross features a 16” wheelbase, something T-Mag swears by for anyone that rides Parks&Pools, and is taller than he is (T-Mag is only 5’4”) and older than say 25. The 16” wheelbase provides a more stable ride and if you’re so inclined, works way better for really high airs. According to T-Mag, most boards in the 80’s had a 16” wheelbase and the modern and shorter WB is a direct product of street skating and some vert/pool skaters that wanted to do technical flip tricks on vert. So unless that’s your thang, ride a 16” wheelbase and be stoked!
The construction is the updated and standard 4-3 layup, that features a good mix between thin, light and stiff and this board rides really well for most weights. If you’re a buck 80 or more AND you’re charging really hard, you may want to look at the 5-2 layup or the “thick bitch” (7 layers of 1/16, like in the 80’s, see the Hackett boards).
The shape is a classic H-Street 80’s shape and is built on the Supreme Concave technology; the ultimate design to ride any park, pool or ramp. The Supreme Concave features a seamless and elliptical concave curve across the body of the board and a dual radius curved tail with a fair amount of concave. The dual radius in combination of the concave tail forms a pocket for your back foot that is unbelievably comfortable and secure.
Made in California at Watson Lam and constructed with high quality maple wood and available in a variety of natural, stained and full dips with the best silk screen job that could be had anywhere. There is only 50 made in the A Series of the Kid’n’Cross and it’s laser marked as such, including the series number.
