Bieber gets custom skateboards from Toronto students

The Purpose World Tour landed in Toronto tonight and it looks like our city has a case of Bieber fever. We not only got two concerts, but we're also playing host to a Purpose pop-up shop. And to thank the Biebs, a group of local students just gave him the ultimate gift.

Since Bieber is a big fan of skateboarding, the MLSE (Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainments) Live's artist gifting program teamed up with the Oasis Skateboard Factory - a TDSB program where students earn credits by running their own skateboard business - to create 14 custom decks for the internationally renowned pop star.

Thirteen of the decks are art pieces that pay homage to each track on the Purpose album; Bieber will actually be able to ride deck, well skateboard, number 14.

The Oasis Skateboard Factory crew also built Biebs a custom skateboard rack so he can proudly display his new collection.
