Legendary Television and Bear Walker Industries have come together to bring the skateboarding community a limited edition board inspired by the new Lost in Space series.

The one-of-a-kind J2 Beacon skateboard design incorporates elements of the reimagined show, including the character Will Robinson’s spacesuit and the spacecraft, the Jupiter 2.

Now streaming on Netflix, the science fiction show follows the Robinson family as the fight against the odds to survive after crash landing on an alien planet.

Each deck is handcrafted from maple and carries a $425 price tag.

“These collector’s boards were made to represent the mentality that each board is an exploration vehicle for the 24 Colony Mission,” said Bear Walker founder and CEO of Bear Walker Industries.

“These boards are not only a reflection of the Robinson family’s journey into space, but also my love of sci-fi and desire to break the boundaries of what a longboard should look like.

“It is the most intricate and sophisticated board to come out of my shop to date.”

Sonia Borris, executive vice president of marketing for Legendary Television, added: “Partnering with Bear Walker was an easy decision. He is not only a gifted craftsman but also a true fan of the property. His enthusiasm for Lost in Space is apparent in every detail of this beautiful board.”
