Eternal x Sea Shepherd Great White - 8.75"
A foreboding collaboration with Sea Shepherd and Sunshine Coast Skateboard Company Eternal Skateboards – This decks bears a unique glow-in-the-dark Great White Shark Graphic.
These graphics have two facets, one viewed in the light and one only in the dark. The light portrays the sharks the way that nature intended, hunting and bringing balance to the oceans. The dark reveals a foretelling of an unfavourable future for sharks and the health of the planet if we don’t protect them. We also wanted to put each shark in their natural habitat, see below how we fleshed out the background.
Collab with Sea Shepherd
Around the world, sharks are in big trouble, with over 90% of the world’s sharks are being wiped out through fishing, cruel shark finning and particular shark mitigation strategies, like nets and drumlines.
As a result of these, between 70 and 100 million sharks die a year. Places where sharks have been wiped out have been drastically impacted by the loss, with effects ranging from the collapse of fisheries, coral reef growth being stunted, to oxygen depleted dead zones.
As important apex predators, sharks have shaped marine life in the oceans since the dawn of time and are essential to the health of our oceans, and ultimately to the survival of humankind.
Eternal Skateboards have teamed up with Sea Shepherd to release a series of graphics to help defend sharks. A percentage of every sale will go towards protecting sharks worldwide and support more effective mitigation strategies thanks to Sea Shepherd’s dedication to the cause.
Eternal Skateboards have around since 1992 when they started up in Canada. Eventually the company moved to the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia where they now call home. They currently back a talented team of Aussie shredders and produce a solid line of decks, wheels and clothing.
