Southsea based skate company and friends of the store Wooden Wife Skateboards recently released the WW Female Form Deck which features some beautifully hand drawn graphics by artist, team rider and O.G Southsea local Joseph Loughborough. Wooden Wife founder Jacob Skinner wrote a few words about Joe to accompany the release.
"From an early age Joe was a massive influence in skateboarding for me, with those mesmerising folding hardflips and frontside flips.
A true creative with whatever he turns his hands/feet to, as well as being an awesome human being. One of the main initial pushes to get Wooden Wife up and running was to be a platform for all my extremely talented friends to get some more of the recognition that they deserve, through the medium that love the most.
Thanks for all that you do Joe, and all others like you."
