VCJ created the artwork for our Holiday 2013 deck. This deck is amazing.
Q: What's up with the new Powell-Peralta Funshapes?
A: We wanted to try something different. A lot of us were bored with the popsicle shapes, and if you don't skate switch- why ride one? We just wanted to try a fun shape with the sizing and functionality of present day skateboarding.
Q: Why the extra truck holes?
A: We make skate products with all ages of skateboarders in mind. When the first Funshapes were sampled, we had a 14.25" wheelbase on it. A few of our older skaters loved these new shapes, but asked about having a larger wheelbase. So we decided to have the double truck holes to stoke everyone out. All the Funshapes come with a 14.25" and 15" wheelbase.
Q: Anything else you want to mention?
A: Grip em and rip em.
All Funshapes have the hijacked Banner Dragon top graphic, with painted top ply and rails.
