Sector 9 Debuts Second Collaboration with Marley Family

Print Friendly and PDF

For the second time, Sector 9 Skateboard Co., preeminent global provider of skateboards, is partnering with the Marley family, on a board series featuring iconic Bob Marley images. 

Designed with the legend of Bob in mind, and an eye towards the environment, the new four board collection is constructed with 100% sustainably harvested Bamboo.

“In 2011, we partnered with the Marley family on a very successful line of limited-edition skateboards, and thought the timing was right to work together again, on an updated series,” says Dennis Telfer, Sector 9 Creative Director and Brand Co-Founder. “Bob remains an inspiration of authenticity and equality, which is in line with the skating lifestyle.”

“The bamboo makes these boards cool and conscious - I love them!” adds Ziggy Marley, when asked about his feeling on the new Sector 9 collection.

Starting this month, the Bob Marley series will be available for sale in select Sector 9 authorized dealers, and offers something for every riding style.   The imagery also allows fans an opportunity to celebrate Bob and their love of skateboarding by hanging a deck on their wall.

The boards included are: Natty Dread (26.5”) $134; Small Axe (32.5”) $179; Jamming (37.5”) $179; and Exodus (38.5”) $179.  All boards will feature various styles of Gull Wing trucks and either 9-Ball or Top Shelf wheels.
