Here we have an awesome graphic designed by the man himself Nathaniel Russel! Fascinated by the cosmos and in wonderment of nature, Nathaniel Russell brings his artistry to the Element drawing board, there's not much more to say about this one other than it's a great piece of artwork on some of the best quality boards in the skate world. This one comes in a slightly bigger size great for the more advanced skaters out there or just for someone who's looking for a bit of extra width.
According to folklore, notably celebrated by a statue in front of the town hall of Phil’s home town, Antwerpen got its name from the legend about a giant called Antigoon who lived near the Scheldt river. He exacted a toll from passing boatmen, and for those who refused, he severed one of their hands and threw it into the river. Eventually the giant was killed by a young hero named Silvius Brabo, who cut off the giant’s own hand and flung it into the river. Hence the name Antwerpen, from the Dutch ‘hand werpen’ or ‘throwing hands’ in English. Element commisioned artist Nathaniel Russell to interpret the legend of Antwerpen and create the art for Phil’s 2nd pro model.
