Powell Peralta - Skull & Sword Shape 243 Deck Blue - 8.25"
The Powell Peralta popsicles are made in Skate One's China factory using Skate One AirLam® presses, and the same maple and glue to match our engineering specifications. These new decks have assorted color stained top veneers along with a red centre ply. They're light, thin, have excellent torsional rigidity, and crisp pop.
Great for beginner to pro level skating at an awesome price. Works well in the streets, skateparks, pools, freestyle, bombing hills or just pushing to the store.
The Rodriguez "Skull & Sword" deck was the first pro signature deck graphic produced by Powell-Peralta. The graphic was conceived by Ray and Illustrated by V.C. Johnson with art direction from George Powell in 1979.
Initially released in two distinctly different shapes; a 10" x 30" "Widetail" version and a 10" x 28.5" "Snub Nose,” it came in "Brite-Lite" Dayglo yellow, orange, purple and green. In years to follow, it was made in various different colors and a Powell-Peralta logo was added. In 1983 Ray's signature was removed and replaced with a Powell-Peralta script logo. The graphic was also used for T-shirts and stickers.
