Rayne Longboards x MuirSkate Longboard Shop Deck Graphic Contest - "The Muiracle"


We've partnered up with Rayne Longboards to bring you a graphic contest with some sweet prizes and us a new graphic for our newest collaboration deck, The Muiracle! It's a new pool/tech-slide/shralpster shape coming from Rayne and is guaranteed to be the dopest dopesauce you never seen! (Unless you've already seen it, of course... In which case, you already know how dope it is, so why are you even reading this? Read on for more details, Picasso!)

The Contest:
Put your skills to the test to show us who's the best! Make the graphic for The Muiracle, stick your tongue out at the rest! The Rayne and MuirSkate logos must be present. Other than that, you're free to use your creationary skills! (see below for technical guidelines)

When you're all finished, email your submission to contact@muirskate.com with the phrase "Muiracle Graphic Contest" in the Subject line. With the help of the Rayne crew, we'll be selecting our five favorites for the public to vote on via Facebook 'likes'. After a week of voting, we'll have our winner! There'll be a second and third place, too! (See below)

Submissions are due by the end of the day on November 21st, 2013.

The Prizes:
We'll be giving out three prizes for the top three graphics.
First Place -"The Muiracle" Complete - First deck of the batch
Second Place - "The Muiracle" Deck - Second of the batch
Third Place - Contest prize package (Mix/Match of Muir/Rayne gear)
More Details:
Below, you'll see a link to the template to help you lay out your graphic. Download it right now and start slangin' that digital paintbrush! Note: If you're gonna make use of some text, it'd be best if you kept it to the middle of the board, since some of the outer region will be sliced off during production.

Technical Guidelines:
  • 33 L x 10 W plus a 2" bleed... Do 35" x 12" to be safe.
  • 300 dpi 
  • .AI or .PSD
  • COLOR SEPARATED LAYERS (If you're like WTF, Google it.)
  • Specify white or clear glass! (White as a color will only appear with white glass. White glass will show no wood grain at all through the graphic. color will be slightly distorted on clear glass due to opacity of glass and wood. Darker colors have more opacity. We require color separated layers in part to tweak colors for production to reflect art desires. If we want near perfect representations of digital art, then white is required and, again, no wood will be shown.)

Submissions are due by the end of the day on November 21st, 2013.

Longboarding a sport that demands finesse, patience and dedication. A sport unparalleled; where intensity and adrenaline flows hand-in-hand with serenity. Where speedy reflexes hold importance tantamount to careful movements, a strange contrast.

These boards are produced and distributed exclusively to only the finest downhill longboarding supply companies on the planet. There is no reason these boards should be taken (or ridden) lightly. john race

I love longboarding: It’s practical. I can go around in a longboard instead of using a car on some days.
I’d like to see volleyball or baseball have some direct real life application (okay, the sports kind of have,
you can run faster and whatnot but still! It’s different from longboarding’s practicality).
