ATYPICAL

Atypical is a young Milanese company that started making skateboards – to ride the forward face of urban waves – in 2012.

Its craftsmen make cruiser boards by hand, creating unique objects with a combination of selected ash wood, design and functionality. Their models are inspired by the first surfboards from the 1960s and 1970s, and could very well fit into a postmodern Beach Boys video, or a metropolitan “Big Wednesday”.

Start paddling with your foot on the sea of concrete, cut back into the wave of a parabolic bend in the road, find where it breaks into a sidewalk, get barreled in a tube of metallic clangor and explosion of horn blasts.

That’s how you surf in the city.
