SAN FRANCISCO, CA, June 11, 2014 – Chris Cosentino and FTC debut the limited edition food-centric deck in collaboration between the prolific chef and legendary Haight-Ashbury skate brand.


The deck, inspired by prominent skateboarder Mike Carroll’s iconic design of a grumpy kid with a plate of macaroni & cheese, spotlights Cosentino’s notorious love of pork and his enduring relationship with skateboarding. Featuring a colorful illustration of the chef with a fork and knife in hand, seated over a playful pig head and accompanying pint of beer, the Cosentino x FTC deck is reminiscent of Chris’ own growth as a chef that bears roots in the sport. An avid skateboarder for over 20 years, Cosentino claims that he was able to “push himself to get better every day, which kind of set the tone for him now” as a renowned chef and entrepreneur.


The limited edition deck, priced at $50, will be available in store at FTC San Francisco, the brand’s online shop (, and Chris Cosentino’s website ( FTC is located at 1632 Haight St, San Francisco, CA 94117 and is open everyday from 11 AM to 7 PM. For more information, visit

FTC, established in 1986, humbly began as a small collection of skate gear buried in the back of a ski and tennis shop and over the past three decades has earned the reputation as one of the true epicenters of real skate culture. By 1994 FTC opened the doors of its first shop in San Francisco’s historic Haight-Ashbury just as skateboarding was evolving beyond its surf-inspired roots and exploding into a new style of city street skating. FTC was there for the whole ride attracting and nurturing the talented outsiders, misfits, and artists that put legendary spots like the Embarcadero aka EMB and Hubba Hideout on the map. Over the years, FTC has grown beyond the confines of its original shop and has evolved into a brand known for its authentic, grass roots innovation in apparel, design, video, art and music. The FTC family grows larger but the original vision remains—quality clothing and authentic products born from the heart and soul of the streets. In addition to the flagship store in San Francisco, FTC has locations in Sacramento, Tokyo, Sendai, & Barcelona.
