Craig Stecyk, co-founding member of the Zephyr Competition Team (Z-Boys) remarked that ‘Skaters, by their very nature, are urban guerrillas; they make everyday use of the useless artifacts, of the technological burden, and employ the handiwork of the government, corporate structure in a thousand ways that the original architects could never dream of.’ In pursuit of notorious unconventionality, The Rake challenges the livery of these urban warriors and demonstrates the fluidity of suits through the beauty of skateboarding.
