Powell & Peralta Flight Shape 280 Ripper Yellow-Black Deck 9.7"
Deck only. Without griptape.
Arguably the most iconic skateboard graphic of all time, "The Ripper" was illustrated in 1983 by legendary Powell-Peralta artist V.C. Johnson. Originally the graphic was used as a "Bones Sold Here" dealer window sticker. Next, the artwork found it's way onto t-shirts and eventually decks. The Ripper graphic has stood the test of time and has been a staple of the Powell-Peralta line for over 30 years. Originally Released: 1983 Artwork by: Vernon Courtlandt Johnson FLIGHT™ Decks are: Thinner - as thin as your phone Stronger - more than twice as strong in our tail break tests Longer lasting - The epoxy infused, fiber reinforced structure of the Flight deck is extremely resistant to breaking, and this structure gives them "everlasting pop" that doesn't fade as your deck slowly wears. Ollies higher because of greater rebound and snap. Team testing suggests that Flight decks will last several times longer than a 7-ply, making them a great value as well as a superior performing skateboard.
