Underground appreciators rejoice, we've got the latest collection of skateboard decks and caps from one of skateboarding's finest distributions: Theories of Atlantis.
What is Theories of Atlantis?
For those who don't know, Theories of Atlantis was founded by legendary filmer, Josh Stewart - the genius behind countless iconic videos, including the 'Static' series. In contrast to some of the larger distributions, Theories places heavy emphasis on promoting small, independent, skater-owned brands that you may not always have heard of, but you really should get to know. I mean they're the distribution responsible for spreading brands like Polar, Magenta, and Isle to the States so you know they've got an eye for the good stuff.
However, they obviously weren't satisfied with just supplying the world with top-tier brands and videos, as they've now branched out into producing their own line of skateboard decks and clothing (as well as a bunch of new videos of their own). As you can probably guess from their name, Theories of Atlantis draw on a wide range of conspiracy theories for their graphics. From pyramids and the illuminati to flying saucers and Rasputin, Theories' graphics are guaranteed to open your third eye.
Theories of Atlantis Skateboard Decks
Theories have come through with a load of bangin' new graphics for their Spring 2022 collection, with all the weird and wonderful designs you expect from the brand. The 'Time To Live' deck is easily one of the most mind-bending from the collection. The graphic features a load of optical illusions, including a trippy clock and spiralling fractals, as well as a load of other awakened imagery. This one would definitely make a striking wall board, it'd definitely keep any stoners or hippies occupied for a while as they attempt to decipher its mysteries.
Another graphic with some serious conspiracy themes is the 'Revealed' deck, which features an image of the top being blown off of a pyramid. Pretty symbolic stuff. The art style, colour palette, and lettering on this one give the graphic some serious old-school comic book vibes, and I mean who doesn't like explosions?
Last but not least, the 'Modern Myth' deck alludes to one of the most popular conspiracies of all time: UFOs. The deck features a multi-coloured silhouette of a face with a flying saucer as the eye, alongside a 'Theories of Flying Saucers' slogan. The black bottom section of the deck contrasts nicely with the retro blue-green nose for a really clean aesthetic. The deck also features the code 738-MJ-12, which presumably refers to the rumoured secret committee of scientists, government officials, and military leaders dedicated to recovering and investigating alien spacecrafts known as Majestic 12 (or MJ-12 for short). Not sure what the 738 means though if anyone else can shed light on this. Really solid graphic from Theories here though.
Theories of Atlantis Caps
Alongside the skateboard decks, Theories of Atlantis have also come through with some tasteful new caps for you to enjoy. The Theories 'Mystic Advisor' 6 panel cap features a classic unstructured 6 panel construction with a flat peak and adjustable strapback for that timeless aesthetic. The cap comes in a lovely Slate colourway with an embroidered 'Mystic Advisor' logo featuring some classic mystical symbols. There's also a bangin' 917-esque phone number embroidery on the back too. Oh, and it's corduroy, because who doesn't love a cord cap?
Finally, the Theories 'Modern Myth' snapback cap is the final offering from Theories in this collection. The cap features a flat purple peak that contrasts nicely with the black upper. The cap shares the same graphic as the 'Modern Myth' deck with the multi-coloured face and UFO, with a tasteful white Theories logo below.
