Makaha Skateboards

I just found this little article on Makaha skateboards. My third board was a Makaha I bought it in 1978. It was back to wood decks, after giving my first, a Nash Shark (green), away and riding the daylight out of the kicktailed plastic thing that followed it.

Incidentally Domenic Priore wore his Makaha teamrider jacket two or three weeks ago arriving at the Luxuriamusic.com studios.

German skateboard company Titus offers the Benni Dittrich model.
It features a wild jungle scene with a native dancer and flames – and tiki! No idea who drew this.
