The National Tactical Officers Association is joining forces with KOTA Longboards to introduce SWAT-themed skate decks. Although my nephews would probably enjoy these boards, I’m too old to be collecting road rash like I did when I was a teen. Still, you can get them customized with your department patch, unit insignia, or other personalization. Press release from NTOA:
