Anime News Network’s merchandise coverage sponsored by Tokyo Otaku Mode.


Primitive Skateboarding launched a line of Dragon Ball Z skateboard decks and other merchandise on May 1. In addition to 12 decks, the series includes shirts, hoodies, hats, grip tape, wheels, mugs, socks, and a pillow.

Unfortunately for skateboarding DBZ fans, the Gohan deck, both Shenron decks, all four hats, the Shenron grip tape, the wheels, both mugs, and all three varieties of socks are all sold out. Prices for the available merchandise range from US$12 for grip tape to US$54.95 for a deck. The company also notes that due to an “overwhelming amount of orders,” shipping may be delayed 12 to 14 days.

Although skateboarding is the latest sport to tie in with Dragon Ball, many athletes from NBA players to NFL stars have long been fans. Runners also got to test their skills in the official “Dragon Ball Run” event last year.
