San Diego Loyal SC announced that it has partnered with legendary skateboarder Willy Santos and Willys Workshop to launch a first of its kind skateboard deck. The innovative collaboration fuses two iconic figures across the world of sports, bringing together soccer and skateboarding.
Featuring the classic dog character used on Willy Santos Birdhouse decks of the late 90's and early 2000's, a limited edition run of the skateboard deck.
“The similarities I see between soccer and skateboarding are uncanny.” “Both sports bring people together in a unique way. The passion and intensity I see from the fans at SD Loyal home games is the same spirit I see from neighborhood kids getting together at local skateparks. It’s a togetherness that goes beyond the sport. It was really exciting to come together to merge that passion through a skateboard collaboration.”
