OGs be warned: this will make you feel old. Habitat are celebrating 20 years (!!) since the release of their iconic video, 'Mosaic', by releasing some limited edition decks to commemorate it. Released in 2003 (if you're struggling with the mental arithmetic involved in working out 2023 minus 20), 'Mosaic' is a straight-up classic that's constantly cited as people's favourite video thanks to its tasteful editing, seminal skating and undisputably GOATed lineup.

If you're at least somewhat 'in the know', you'll be well aware of the fact that the videos that came out of the Sovereign Sect between 2000 and 2010 (the holy trinity of Habitat's 'Mosaic' alongside Alien Workshop's 'Photosynthesis' and 'Mindfield') were some of the most influential videos of the period and they've only increased in cultural significance as the years have gone by, aging like fine wines while some of their contemporaries have curdled like milk.

With a lineup featuring all-time greats like Danny Renaud, Tim O'Connor, Fred Gall, Brian Wenning, Anthony Pappalardo, Stefan Janoski and more, it's not surprising that 'Mosaic' has stood the test of time so well. There's no point trying to go into more detail because every part's a straight-up banger, from Danny Renaud's tasteful trick selection to Danny Garcia's effortless style, and there's even an Alien Workshop section as an added bonus. It doesn't get much better than this.

It makes sense then that Habitat would want to celebrate what's probably their greatest ever accomplishment with a limited run of decks; many skate brands never get to celebrate a 20th anniversary of any sort, let alone the anniversary of a video that's still as well-loved and respected as 'Mosaic'. It also makes sense that, just like the video itself, these decks are an absolute treat for the eyes.

The new Habitat 'Mosaic 20 Year Anniversary' decks feature artwork by legendary skate artist and the mastermind behind 'Mosaic', Joe Castrucci, who has paid tribute to the video's iconic visuals in his distinctive, brightly-coloured style. The Mosaic Anniversary decks feature a split graphic with some film-based images on a blue mosaic background, reminiscent of the video's opening titles, on the tail while the nose features a reimagining of the 'Mosaic' title from the video on a plain background.

To make things even more exciting, the Habitat 'Mosaic 20 Year Anniversary' decks are available in two different shapes and sizes: a classic popsicle shape with a width of 8.125" or a slightly wider 8.375" in the ever-popular Twin Tail shape - but we don't blame you if you'd rather keep them for the wall.

So go on, treat yourself to one of these limited Habitat Mosaic Anniversary decks while you still can but at the very least make sure you watch (or rewatch) this absolutely timeless video. It will improve your quality of life drastically. If you're a fan of the video, we also recommend checking out the version with Tim O'Connor's commentary, because Tim O'Connor makes everything better.

That's enough chit-chat though. Head to the shop to browse the full range of Habitat skateboard decks and buy now from CSC. Or, check out more of the latest news, videos, and product reviews on the CSC Blog. Safe.
