The August 1990 Blockhead ad reads “Why is Omar Hassan pro at 16? Hmm... I wonder... The ad featured Omar’s first graphics, the “Magic Carpet”, Omar was also featured on the cover (TWS). Omar’s insane antics at the Blockhead Ramp while filming for Splendid Eye Torture cemented the decision to turn him pro at such a young age and as you all know, things worked out just fine. The graphic pays tribute to Omar’s heritage and is screen printed just like the originals. The rectangle shape is the first version of the graphic inked by Ron Cameron and is absolute perfection...he just really nailed it on this one! This modern deck shape takes influences from the original but takes some liberties to update it including straight rails instead of “fish” shape.
