EDDIE “EL GATO” ELGUERA SCARECROW/ 165 | A SERIES
Eddie “El Gato” Elguera pretty much single handedly took skateboarding from a surfer style Dogtown lifestyle to a technical and more physically demanding art form in the late 70’s into the early 80’s. Hailing from the mountain resort area of Lake Arrowhead CA, Eddie was a local at the infamous Colton skate park that was run by the Losi’s who also had Variflex, Eddie’s probably most famous sponsor, besides H-Street.
Eddie had several really great boards with H-Street and was lucky enough to have had both Francesco and the Godoy’s draw graphics for him, with this one being drawn by Art Godoy and has never been re-issued in the past.
The Magnificent Seven Series are made with original specs; old school hole patterns, shapes and the original Hell Concave. They are hand silk-screened and made in San Diego California at Watson Lam.
Every Limited Original Re-issue Series board from H-Street is individually numbered and classified by series letter. The first manufactured series being A, the second B, and so forth—meaning that this board is an original one-of-a-kind H-Street sanctioned re-issue as indicated by the laser mark and will never to be made with the same mark twice.
All painted boards (dipped) will ship as shown but all colored stained maple and the split stained maple will ship assorted. On the solid, you can request a particular color in the note section of the order and we’ll do our best but no guarantees on that. The split veneers are too random to even make the request.
