Brilliant VHS Skateboards

Want to frighten yourself with the crippling realisation of just how old you are? Show a 14-year-old your VHS collection and wait for the confusion to set in. "So these are like DVDs? Do they do HD? Do you have to open them?" Such is their naivety, they will probably assume the new skateboard deck range from 5Boro was designed by some art collective called Very Hot Skateboards. The fools.

Calling on the classic box designs of the likes of Fuji, Sony, TDK and Polaroid VHS tapes (go on, revel in the 90s nostalgia for a moment, we'll wait), every single one of the eight 5Boro decks in the series is beautiful enough to hang on your wall.

Measuring 8.25 by 32 inches, each of the VHS Tapes series boards is available for around £30 from 5Boro and select retailers.
