    • Skate culture emerged in the late 20th century as a dynamic subculture with roots deeply embedded in California's surf scene. In the 1950s and 1960s, surfers sought alternative ways to ride the streets when the waves were flat, leading to the birth of sidewalk surfing or skateboarding.

    • The Z-Boys, a group of young skateboarders from the Dogtown neighborhood of Santa Monica in the 1970s, played a pivotal role in shaping the rebellious and expressive nature of skate culture. Influenced by the fluid movements of surfers, they brought a distinctive style to skateboarding, incorporating aggressive maneuvers and mastering the art of empty swimming pools. Skateboarding evolved into a global phenomenon, fostering a unique sense of community and identity.

FKT Gnarly is a modern Grotesque offering five upright weights with matching italics, suitable for both text and display. Across all weights and styles, characters maintain a consistent advance width (uniwidth), ensuring no impact on line length or text flow when swapping, for example, the Black for the Light weight. Departing from tradition, this typeface features extended terminals reminiscent of 19th-century Grotesques and exaggerated ink traps, making a bold stylistic statement. Stylistic alternates, such as the single-storey 'a' and 'g,' allow for control over the text tone.
