A cool and exciting skate company is making its way to the mainstream. Otherness is an enigmatic company with a new approach to skateboard designs. Featuring cool and out-of-the-box graphics, this company pushes the limit on what skateboard graphics should look like.
What exactly was Otherness? A board brand? An art project? An outlet for a few like-minded individuals? Well, your guess is as good as ours. All we know is Marc Johnson was involved in one way or another because he was teasing it on his Instagram. Was it his company? No, not exactly… not really, no. Who were their riders? Well, as far as we knew, Marc was one.
For now, your best bet is to go here and read an interview with the Otherness owners/creators, Thom Hornung and Mat O’Brien. Every answer that you might have is most likely answered in that interview.
The boards are now available and they look really rad. The graphics are different and unique, like many graphics are in this thriving independent-era of skateboarding. And the mystery factor is something that will always keep you wanting more.
