You may have noticed a certain locally shot movie is opening in cinemas this week, a little something called Hobo With A Shotgun
. Director Jason Eisener
and producer Rob Cotterill
were over at Pro Skateboards and Snowboards
(6451 Quinpool Road, 429-6788) last week to help open boxes
decks, maple boards from Control Skateboards
in Quebec, illustrated with the original poster graphic by Tom Hodge
from the movie. The decks are $59, including the grip tape, though it’s hard to imagine anyone riding one of these suckers. They’re more likely to be displayed prominently in the home, a gory, glorious collectors item to remind folks of the day the Hobo came to town.
