The pig's out the bag: South Wales Superstar, Jake Collins, has found himself on the cover of the latest issue of The Skateboarder's Companion and on the bottom of a new Carve Wicked pro board, alongside a full Carve Wicked x CSC collection celebrating the King of Pigs. After his absolutely wham part in Carve Wicked's 'Old Skool Nokia', Jake has finally been given the respect he deserves with his new Carve Wicked 'King of Pigs' deck, but since he's that much of a legend we couldn't just stop there and we've turned it into a full blown collection complete with tees, caps and so much more.
Jake's been a staple of the South Wales skate scene for many years, starting out as a tiny piglet terrorising Skate Extreme and maturing into the all-terrain hog that he is today, dominating comps and stacking numerous video parts over the years. Safe to say having his name on a board is well overdue. And while he's had countless sponsors throughout his career, from local brands like Kill City to global powerhouses like Creature, it just feels right that he's found his forever home on Carve Wicked alongside his best mukkas.
Carve Wicked x CSC Jake Collins Pro Decks
Obviously the main attractions are the new Carve Wicked x CSC Jake Collins Pro boards featuring Jake's debut 'King of Pigs' graphic. With artwork inspired by the devious doodler, Lee 'Beef' Bennett, and masterfully reimagined by the one and only Nat Jones, the 'King of Pigs' graphic features everything you associate with Collins: lager, fags and pigs, managing to capture the very essence of the man in one beautiful design. The CSC WKD 'King of Pigs' decks are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and woodstains with popsicles ranging from 8.125" to 8.75" as well as a very on-trend Egg shape, so you can swear fealty to the King of Pigs no matter your preference.
Carve Wicked x CSC T-Shirts
Alongside the decks, we've also got some new Carve Wicked x CSC T-shirts with even more bangin' artwork from some of South Wales' finest creatives. The instant classic 'King of Pigs' graphic from the Companion ad and decks is also available in T-shirt format with three stylish colourways to choose from: classic Black, Forest Green or Pig Shit Brown. As always the tees are designed and printed right here in Cardiff by the legends over at Visible Art (shoutout Ben!) because you know we're all about keeping shit local.
Scared of pigs? Don't worry, the drop also features the new Carve Wicked x CSC 'Wizard' T-shirt which features a more vegan-friendly graphic by the good homie Will Folwell. The 'Wizard' graphic depicts the behind-the-scenes processes which went into this collab, with a CSC WKD chest print and a recreation of unholy sorcery used to combine the essences of Carve Wicked and CSC on the back. Much like the 'King of Pigs' tee, the 'Wizard' tee also comes in an array of tasteful colours including Black, Bone, Lemon and Carolina Blue.
Carve Wicked x CSC Caps
Seeing as summer's decided to show its face again why not invest in a new Carve Wicked x CSC cap to keep your bonce from burning? We've got a nice variety of graphics, styles and colourways so there's sure to be something that tickles your fancy, whether it's the classic Carve Wicked x CSC 'Stroke' 6 panel with its simple 'CSC WKD' graphic in either Black or Wheat or the very on-trend 'King of Pigs' Trucker Cap with the iconic mesh back to keep your head cool.
We've also got the Carve Wicked x CSC 'King of Pigs' cap with a unique 5 panel dad hat construction in either Black or Copper if you're looking for something a bit more different. Sitting somewhere between a dad cap and a trucker hat, this 5 panel shape has been super popular since we released our 'Scoob' 5 panel hats with the same construction, so it's safe to say these bad boys won't be around for long.
Carve Wicked x CSC Accessories
Last but certainly not least we've also got some extremely useful new accessories which are guaranteed to drastically improve your quality of life. Naturally, given his love for a nice, cold can of lager, we had to make Jake his own pro beer koozie for the collection. The Carve Wicked x CSC 'King of Pigs' Beer Koozie is specially designed to keep your beer cool in the summer or stop your hand getting too cold in the winter so that you can enjoy a nice, cold can no matter the conditions. It even features printed artwork of Nat's 'King of Pigs' design with the
If the Koozie isn't useful enough, the collection also introduces the new Carve Wicked x CSC Banana Guard which is guaranteed to revolutionise the way you carry your banana. Ever chucked a banana in your bag on your way out, hoping to enjoy a tasty and nutritious mid-session snack, only to find it lying obliterated in a puddle of its own excrement at the bottom of your bag? Well, luckily for you, the new CSC WKD Banana Guard is specially designed to prevent that situation ever coming to pass, allowing you to enjoy pristine bananas wherever life takes you. This might just be the most useful item ever sold in a skate shop.
