"With the season kicking off all over the world, the Rome SDS releases the 2011 Artifact 1985 SK.
Last season, Rome expanded the idea behind the shop-kid-only Artifact SK that it has made for the last two years. This time, the idea was to let the shop kids create the art for the SK—Designed By Shop Kids, For Shop Kids. More than ever, the idea was to listen to kids on shred.
As announced earlier in the summer, Mike Forester from the one-and-only Casualties in Marquette, Michigan won the first annual Artifact SK art contest. From there, he worked with Rome’s art director for boards to finalize and refine his ideas (and he ended up designing a couple 2011 Rome board as well).
Meat Justice is the result of Forester’s creative genius on the 2011 SK.
Technologically speaking, this year the SK is built on the Artifact 1985 design, featuring Rome’s Poprock reverse camber technology.
Limited to fewer than 100 boards worldwide, the SK is be available exclusively through Rome’s Operative Program for shop kids and resort employees living in resort-town ghettos." via ROME SDS
Mike worked hard out in VT all summer living his "dream". This is just a start of his efforts you'll see in the coming months. Shop kids holla!

SUPER SUPER SUPER. Man it's funny how an action so familiar can stir your whole being. Today was awesome, sliding sideways, good people, warm temps, man made, butters, smiles, and it's just the beginning. Thanks Wild for always pushing to get open.
