Powell Peralta 8.5" x 32.08" Skull and Sword Red/Pink Skateboard Deck
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.
