Last month, we told you about how three skateboard decks customized, triptych-style, by the late Beastie Boy Adam Yauch — in collaboration with skater Bucky Lasek (a voice for pro-Tibetan freedom, just as Yauch was) — were to be auctioned by the Tony Hawk Foundation. Originally, no photos were available but the Foundation has shared with us a couple of shots of what awaits the highest bidder.

These shots are of two of the three skate decks being auctioned, which have had the lyrics to the Beastie Boys song “Bodhisattva Vow” added to it. They are being auctioned to benefit The Tony Hawk Foundation and its efforts to help create and build public skateparks in low-income communities across the U.S. For more about the THF and its mission, click here.
