About this store
My tag is Crooked Walker. Growing up in a small town near Vancouver, BC, I was heavily influenced by the spray-can art I would see on weekend missions into the city. I really had no idea how the writers would create the murals and throw-ups but I wanted to try it. I was soon going on late-night stealth missions around my hometown – right about this time tagging was huge, so I thought I needed a tag name. I thought about it for a long time…in fact right up to the point where I was standing in a park baseball diamond at 2 am with arm outstretched and finger on nozzle. Crooked Walker appeared in my head and it fit perfectly: for years I basically had a permanently sprained ankle and this obviously caused me to walk favoring one leg. Crooked Walker Designs are a reflection of over twenty years of skateboarding and the popular culture it defines and borrows from.
