Epic Games releases IRL Downtown Drop Fortnite skate decks on the Retail Row merch store

In its unrelenting quest to conquer every corner of the world, Fortnite has set it voracious eyes on the skatepark with a new collection of skate decks based on in-game Back Bling designs from the recent Downtown Drop LTM.

All ten designs that were available for players unlock in the game are now listed for preorder on Epic Games’ official Retail Row merch store, priced at £52 (or your regional equivalent) each.

Each deck is 8” wide, 31.875” long, and has a wheelbase of 14” – a pretty standard size that will suit new and experienced skaters.

All boards are made from 7 plies of American Maple and come without griptape applied.

And to skate it, you’ll of course have to add your own trucks and wheels.

You can choose from the following styles:

  • Cuddle Team
  • Peely
  • Slurp
  • Wavy
  • Sweaty
  • Drift
  • Dino Guard
  • Foodies
  • Kevin
  • Graffiti

The Downtown Drop LTM first appeared as a collaboration between Fortnite and the Nike Jordan Jumpman sub-brand.

Although the mode itself was an official release from Epic Games, it featured work from avid Fortnite Creative players, NotNellaf and Tollmolia.

In other Fortnite news we’re now just days away from the Pro-Am tournament, where top streamers compete in teams with celebrities like NFL star Marshawn Lynch and Panic! At the Disco’s Brendon Urie.
