The Sour Solution boys are back with more top quality graphics - including an amazing American Psycho deck - as well as a load of highly functional accessories.
Sour Skateboard Decks
As always, the latest run of Sour decks features some absolutely bangin' graphics with tasteful cultural references alongside some of their signature tongue-in-cheek humour. The Sour 'Pensioners' 8.25" Deck is a perfect example of this with the graphic depicting some of Sour's more seasoned veterans (Koffe Hallgren, EJP and Daniel Spangs) chilling out in the Sour Pensioner's Club after having been put out to pasture, with artwork by Sophie Wainwright. Nice to see the older boys getting some love.
The drop also includes the new Sour 'Vincent Huhta Psycho' 8.18" deck with its incredible 'American Psycho' inspired skateboard graphic. The Sour 'Psycho' deck features a classy blue background with an image of a blood-splattered Patrick Bateman (played by Christian Bale) looking quite pleased with himself, alongside Vincent Huhta's name in the iconic font from the 'American Psycho' posters. Seeing as this film's a cult classic, you're probably gonna want to move quickly if you want to get your hands on Sour's 'American Psycho' deck.
Alongside these two bangers we've also got new pro models for Oscar Candon and the main man, Gustav Tonnesen. Gustav's '3D' decks is a tastefully simple number with the orange woodstain and the central '3D' graphic making it the perfect choice for fans of more minimalist aesthetics and lots of woodstain. Now, you may be wondering where the name '3D' comes from and, believe it or not, the graphic is actually meant to be one of those Magic Eye images that look 3D when you stare at it for ages and bug your eyes out. We've not managed to figure it out yet but let us know what it is if you get it.
Meanwhile, the Sour 'Oscar Candon Wolf' deck - which is probably the widest deck Sour has ever made at a hefty 9" - features a more folklore themed design. The 'Wolf' graphic features an image of the fabled wolf of Norse mythology, Fenrir, attempting to escape from the unbreakable chains used to bind him. The image which was originally drawn by Mabel Dorothy Hardy and used in H. A. Guerber's book from 1909, 'The Myths of the Norsemen', and it's pretty relevant now considering 'God of War: Ragnarok' just came out.
Sour Solution Clothing
Alongside all these bangin' decks we've also restocked on some classic clothing from Sour. We've restocked on the iconic Sour 'Spothunter' fleece, in both black and forest green colourways, so you can stay warm while venturing out in the cold in search of clips. We've also got the new and improved version of the Sour 'GM' and 'Sweeper' beanies with a new mustard colourway for the 'Sweeper' beanie and a redesigned, wavy logo for the 'GM' beanie - both of which are the perfect accompaniment to the 'Spothunter' fleece.
The drop also features a fresh hoodie design from the boys in the form of the all-new Sour 'In Flames' hood. This new Sour hood pays tribute to the intro from their latest video, 'Sour Solution III', with a lo-fi, childlike drawing of the world bursting into flames. Kinda bleak but pretty accurate given the current trajectory of humanity, I just hope the end-times come before I have to watch another Nyjah part.
Sour Solution Accessories
To top it all off, Sour have also come through with some bangin' novelty accessories that would make perfect stocking fillers for any skater. Although it's maybe a little on the large side for a 'stocking filler', the new Sour Backpack is the perfect way to flaunt your knowledge of quirky European skate brands on the playground. This lightweight canvas backpack features a large main pocket as well as a smaller accessories pocket on the front and features an embroidered Sour 'Bass' patch - a reimagining of the iconic Bass Pro Shops logo - for that bonus fishing swag.
Finally, while the weather's still cold the Sour 'Touchy' gloves are a must-have for those chilly winter sessions. Rather than messing about with those silly, new-fangled touchscreen gloves, Sour have kept it old school and chosen to go the fingerless route instead. This means you can still use your phone, the fingertips won't get shredded when you're carrying your board, and you can even make the most of your fingers' grip and dexterity to roll ciggies all night long. Plus, Jamie Platt wore fingerless gloves in the new Polar video so they're officially cool now. What more could you want?
That's enough chit-chat though. Head to the shop to buy the latest Sour Solution skateboard decks and clothing from CSC. Or, find out more about the latest skate product on the CSC Blog. Safe.
