Heroin Skateboards, everyone's favourite supplier of oddly-shaped skateboard decks, are back with another batch of premium wood in all manner of shapes and sizes, from standard popsicles to plus-size Pink Mutants. As always the graphics are just as outlandish as the shapes with the new 'Die Tonight' series featuring artwork by Heroin regular, Funeral French, appearing alongside some new Eggs and reissued classics; this drop ticks all the boxes.

Returning with another new graphic series for this drop, Richard Sayer AKA Funeral French and his artwork are synonymous with Heroin's visual identity - almost as much as the brand's founder, Foz - so it just wouldn't be right if a drop didn't feature French's designs. His latest series, 'Die Tonight', features his distinctive brand of brightly-coloured yet spooky digital art which seamlessly blends the ancient and the modern with designs including a knight riding a griffin in front of a static caravan, a screaming corpse bursting out of an eyeball and that weird ugly rat meme.

We've got new 'Die Tonight' pro models for all your favourite Heroin skaters, including popsicles for Lee Yankou and Aaron Wilson, a new custom shape with wheel wells for Tom Day and a new rendition of Dead Dave's signature 10.1" monster which also features wheel wells. So, whether you want to channel Lee Yankou's all-terrain savagery or Dead Dave's unique coping dancing, Heroin's range of shaped skateboard decks have got you covered!

Heroin Egg Skateboard Decks

Much like French's artwork, it just wouldn't be a Heroin drop without some new Heroin Egg decks. Much like the Tik-Tok famous feta eggs, egg shaped skateboard decks are pretty trendy right now and Heroin are arguably the brand that started it all off with their signature Egg decks being some of the most popular in the game (particularly in the over 40s category...). Heroin's latest drop features two brand new Eggs for you to enjoy, including another bangin' movie-themed egg and a new guest pro model for Lancashire legend and butterfly enthusiast Chris 'Avi' Atherton.

While the Heroin 'Avi Guest Egg' deck keeps things wholesome with its nature-based butterfly graphic, the new Heroin 'Space Egg 2' is at the complete opposite end of the spectrum, drawing inspiration instead from the supernatural and paying homage to John Carpenter's legendary sci-fi horror film, 'The Thing'. The graphic incorporates the film's Antarctic setting with the snowy research facility being over-run by the eponymous 'Thing' - albeit with an egg-based twist. In true Heroin fashion, the film's titular alien has instead transformed into an Egg in Foz's iconic style, alongside an equally eggy spin on the film's slogan: 'Egg is the warmest place to hide'. We're always partial to a film-based skateboard deck and this one is a must-have for films of vintage horror!

Heroin Zane Timpson Glasses Reissue

Alongside all these new decks, Heroin's latest drop features an updated version of Zane Timpson's first ever pro model, the Zane Timpson 'Glasses' deck, with Zane's distinctive glasses on a holographic foil background for a fresh take on this timeless graphic. This reissued Zane Timpson Glasses deck also features a new Double Shovel shape with a symmetrical shovel nose and tail that's 9" across the center. Following Zane's tragic death in 2021, Heroin are doing their bit to support his legacy so all royalties from the deck's sales are being donated to Zane's family to help in any way they can.

Heroin Fuck Drugs Deck

As well as the Zane Timpson reissue deck, Heroin have also brought back one of their most iconic designs of all time, their 'Fuck Drugs Let's Skate' graphic. This iconic design encapsulates what Heroin is all about: the pure, addictive joy of skateboarding and it's the perfect reminder that, despite Instagram's censorship of the brand, they aren't actually trying to sell drugs to kids. This time round the 'Fuck Drugs' deck comes in a chunky 8.75" popsicle shape that's a nice alternative to their more unusual shapes and means it'll make a nice, easy wall-hanger.

Heroin Pink Mutant Deck

Last but certainly not least, we've also got the new Heroin 'Pink Mutant' deck which features an absolutely textbook Heroin graphic complete with pink slime, bulging eyes and everything else you expect from a deck called 'Pink Mutant'. Coming in at a chunky 9.5" width, the Heroin 'Pink Mutant' features a slightly slimmed-down version of Dead Dave's bulbous signature shape with its slightly squared off nose and tail and the small bulge near the tail to really give it that mutated feeling. It even features double-drilled truck holes for customisable wheelbase. What more could you want?
