About The Board
I first met Kayne Hayes on Go Skateboarding Day 2017, at the Crescenta Valley Skatepark in Glendale, CA, when his parents (the Awesome Wayne and Ashley Hayes) surprised us both by traveling all the way out to California from Illinois to get Kayne and I Together. Before that, I had been aware of Kayne via Instagram, but now here we were, Skating, Creating and Enjoying side by side, and the Stoke was High!!!! I knew right then, upon Meeting and Spending Time with Kayne, that I was in the Presence of a Very Special Young Man, and that Street Plant would be producing a Kayne Hayes Signature Model Skateboard.
On the day we met, Kayne was Riding our “Modern Mammoth” Shape from 2015, and he told me it was his Favorite Shape. But soon after it’s release, I had discontinued that Shape because it was an old Black Label Jason Adams Shape that we had “borrowed”, and as Street Plant has evolved, I have moved away entirely from “borrowed” Shapes, and have only released Shapes that I, or our Team, have Personally Shaped with Professor Schmitt, or that are a part of my history in Skateboarding. But since Kayne Loved that Shape, I told him that I would revisit it with The Professor and put the Street Plant Fingerprint upon it.
When it came to the Art, I asked Kayne to send me any ideas he had. A few weeks later I received some photographs of drawings that Kayne was working on. The Art depicted a Gladiator holding a Trident and a Net. When I asked what the meaning of the Art was, I learned that Kayne had been being bullied, not just from some of his peers at school, but from some adults as well, and that the Trident was for Fighting off bullies, and the Net was for Catching all of the Good Things in the World like Skateboarding, Music and Art. I was moved to tears. First, that anyone could bully anyone else in this World at all, and that my buddy Kayne had to deal with such nonsense. Second, that Kayne’s Art was so Meaningful and Thoughtful, that he didn’t just want to Fight off the bad guys, he wanted to Celebrate all the Good in his Life, he wanted to catch it in a Net and never let it go. Truly Beautiful!
From there, I sent Kayne’s drawings over to Mark Ferris and left the rest of it in his Hands and his Heart, and I couldn’t be Happier with the results. In a World where so much is so wrong, Kayne Hayes represents so much of what is So Right, and for us, that is precisely what a Signature Model Skateboard should Represent and Honor.
