Australian skateboard brand Pass~Port have teamed up with New Zealand skate shop Arcade to create a special limited collection this ANZAC Day. ANZAC Day is celebrated annually by the two countries to commemorate soldiers lost by both nations in WWI. In a tribute to the occasion, the collection, which includes a deck, tee shirt and Ebbets Field Flannels cap, focuses on the mutual heritage of the countries instead of their traditional rivalry. An amount of the proceeds from sales will go directly to the ANZAC Poppy Appeal to help support veterans. The two companies also collaborated on the video below, entitled ‘Shared Heritage’, featuring some sick skating from NZ and Aussie’s finest. The collaboration will be available at Pass~Port stockists in Australia this week and at Arcade NZ next Thursday. Pre-orders available online at Arcade.
