From Saturday April 17th for one month only.

The howies shop on Queens Road, Bristol will be holding an exhibition of rare, original vintage skateboards through the ages, from the private collection of Shiner Distribution.

Also, we asked a bunch of our favourite artists to create some one-off hand decorated boards that could be auctioned off to raise funds for Unicef.

We gave each of them an original 1980s blank deck from Shiners’ private collection and let them
do their thing.

The results are a showcase of their unique take on what the skateboard and skateboarding means to them.

Nobody got paid for the work they did. They all gave up their time, sweat, paint and ink voluntarily for the cause, so hats off to them for that.

You can bid for the boards on eBay when the auction begins on 16th April 2010 at 6pm.

All proceeds go to Unicef.
