STEVE ORTEGA CHILI OG PARK & POOL
Steve Ortega Chili | A Series
Steve Ortega was part of the original H-Street Vista crew, along with Matt Hensley, John Sonner, Ned Haden, Mario Rubalcaba and many others who all have remained good friends since then and most still live in the same area today. Somewhat regular sessions still take place at the Oceanside Skatepark.
Ortega’s board comes in an updated version of the original shape as a Park&Pool deck, made in the Supreme Concave with a new school hole pattern and also in a more modern Park&Street shape and standard concave.
The graphics to the Ortega Chili was originally a pencil sketch handed to Steve by a kid in Texas during a demo in the 80’s that were perfected by an unknown artist and Steve’s Pro Model was supposed have been released back then but never was. So this is the “lost” Pro Model re-issue from then.
Steve’s boards are handmade at Watson Lam with original silk screen techniques.*All Dual, Tri-Split and solid stained wood come mixed in colors from the factory and images here are just one possible colorway of those treatments. Generally speaking, we request lighter and brighter colors, like Yellow, Orange, Pink, Red, light or medium Blues, Green and such, since we think our graphics look better on those stains but every once in a while, we end up with darker colors or the more earth tone colors, especially as part of a Dual or Tri-Split. If you have a preference of the solid stained wood, please note that in the memo field for the order and we’ll do our best. Dual and Tri-Splits are so random that we cannot do that. If you prefer to be more certain of what you’ll get, order the full dips or naturals.
