MIA x Coral Morphologic Deck Series & Launch Party

MIA Skate Shop and Coral Morphologic are psyched to announce the release of a series of skateboard decks featuring the photography of three different fluorescent corals that call Miami their home. The collaboration is a logical extension of Coral Morphologic’s view of Miami as the Coral City. A city whose cement buildings are metaphorical monuments to the fossilized remains of an ancient coral reef that once ran through it. Skaters will now be able to skate through a city of coral (recycled as concrete) on boards that reflect its bio-geologic past, present, and future. Miami, a city where vertebrate and invertebrate life-forms are forever bonded through calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate skeletons that were once enveloped with fluorescent coral tissue now form the foundation for a neon metropolis that mirrors its coral reefs. A metropolis with an Atlantean destiny, where corals will one day recolonize the streets and buildings as their own.
