No Worries

No Worries is about spreading positive vibes through skateboarding and sacred geometry. Sacred geometry can be found all throughout the universe, in all sizes and scales, and in most religions and ancient texts. It has been said that people that have, and understand, a piece of sacred geometry in their everyday life are more positive, and just feel all around better about life. The particular geometry used in this piece, consists of the seed of life, which is the essential form of the flower of life, and the Star Tetrahedron, or Merkahbah. The seed of life represents the creation of life, and the further progression of life. The star tetrahedron, represents the "chariot of assention" or in ancient and Jewish texts it was referred to as the Merkahbah. The graphic itself as a whole represents the progression from birth, to enlightenment, and assention into the next dimension as a spiritual being. It exists to inspire the realization that you are a spirit (or whatever you want to call it) having a human experience, and that you, as an energy, are not limited by anything. Unlimited potential. 

I hope to inspire skateboarders to push their limits, and to amplify their creativity, positivity, and confidence. The logo you find (NW) by the back truck holes, is actually an unfolded iscosahedron, one of the sacred platonic solids. The iscosahedron is a twenty triangular sided three dimensional polygon, that represents water, going with the flow, in other words trusting and having faith within the universe. On top you find the full Flower of Life, so even when the graphic wears off you still have your grip tape to remind you the universe has got your back ;)

To make this graphic I used left over frozen pizza boxes to make three stencils: The Seed of Life, the star tetrahedron (incorporating the Vesica Pisces, and the ratio of Phi) and the unfolded icosahedron that is the No Worries logo. The graphic was lined up by eye and spray painted by hand. The board itself consists of 7 layers of Canadian Maple and is 32” long and 8.6” wide. Sounds like a boat but this board rides like a dream!
