I recently purchased the re-issue of Mike V's board just to hang on my wall as i am now too fat and old to skate. Just holding the deck brought memories flooding back, thank you Powell for letting me relive my mislead youth!!!!— Ian
Why did Animal Chin cross bone the road?Because he was with chicken butt.— Kelly
Powell was and still is the skateboard co.Thanks for all the good movies you guys did my favorite BAN THIS.— Jesse Laval
I just got the reissued Mike Vallely elephant deck and it has such a good feel! I am planning on buying another to hang on my wall because the graphic is sooo sick! Thanks for making such tight boards.— Ian Campbell
The 29x10 caballero dragon was the best board I ever owned. I look foward to being able to buy another one, even though my old knees wont allow me to wear this one down like I did the last. I'd really like to see the Beamers and PPP's re-issued as well.— Jim G
Hey guys, I'm an avid freestyle and vert skateboarder from the middle of nowhere Colorado and I am so excited that you are re-issuing some of the older and more legendary shapes, graphics, and wheels. Also, the videos being remastered and the addition of original T-shirts make it all worthwhile. It is just so great that you are bringing back some artifacts from one of the early "evolution periods". Though, I'm still hoping to see the Lance Mountain Future Primitive deck, the Tony Hawk Skull, the newer Steve Caballero Dragon, the Per Welinder Nordic Skull, and any Rodney Mullen shapes. However, I am extremly satisfied and grateful (my friends as well!) for all that you have done. Thanks for coming back STRONG!— Brandon
Just came found out about the the re-issue of the Vallely board. This was one of my favorite boards when it 1st came out. I will definetly being make 2 purchases of this board. One to skate and the other to hang up. I'm 30 years old and have only been a Powell (Powell Peralta ) skater. I have had to re-buy all the Bones Brigade Videos ( 1-5) because they were worn out form all the times of watching, rewinding and pausing. Just wanted to say thanks for the great flashbacks.— Mke Myers
Fantastic! to bring back the best classic graphics of sk8ting ever! I was rippin' for 2 decades now I want to get back to it with some of my favorite decks of all time. I missed it so much had to get some of the classic graphics tatooed 4 life! Hell, I even still got my old Bones Brigade member card. Are the sill valid? LOL!!!— John C.

Man, seeing this site is a blast! Back in the 80s I had many PP decks including Lance Mountain skeleton surfers, McGill, Cab, Vallely, and skeleton playing chess (freestyle) - I still have a surviving Bones t-shirt that I have framed and it still has dirt on it from when I was 16! I've been after this old classic re-issue stuff for years..Great stuff..there is definitely a big market for this.— Dan Baldwin
After not skating for nearly ten years i moved to an a appartment in a side street in my city. Hearing wheels on pavement as a kid rolled by every school day started messing with my head. i went to the local skate shop to buy a set up and was really suprised to see a cab chinese dragon on the wall. i was grinding again that afternoon. going arse up and getting gravel rash has never felt so good. thankyou— paul
I have been skating since the age of 4 (On my 4th Birthday circa 1980). I am going to be 30 on 11 Sept '06 so as you can see I lived the bones brigade generation. 26 years on board with the inspiration from my childhood given to me by Powell Peralta.....I got my first sponsor at 11 and released my final pro model board 18 months ago on a label called Viking Wood. Thanx for all the memories and endless stoke...Powell Peralta 4 Ever.— Donovan Winterburn
The resurrection of Powell-Peralta as it was in the 80s is some of the best news I've heard in a long time. I think it's great for skateboarding...the newer generation, the older generation and all in between. Personally, I never had the opportunity to ride the original decks in the 80s, since I wasn't born yet. I grew up riding popsicle shaped boards, which I still love. However, I have always had an appreciation and fascination with 70s and 80s skateboard culture. These reissues have allowed me the chance to ride these decks which were before my time. Now I can do more than just read about the old school and Powell-Peralta, I can actually experience it in a way. Thank you guys.— Peter “Pistol”
hi to everyone. when i'm started to skating i was 14 years old.. now i'm 30... i'm ever loved this sport.in my time,was all bit hard (especially in italy).find place and skating untill someone call the police, and anyway was ever fun... or for example,when someone of us goes in the city (milano)and turne back with some video,and we meet in the house and we looked that for day and day for learn some new trick to do... but at the end we are street sk8er.. we searched the perfect spot,sometimes we founded,and when happened so, we stay for mounth, and over at all we goes there in skate, and during the journey, i never forget the look of th people that hate us, but at the end was f#**king amazing.. this was the feeling in italy when we started to skating. i hope that everyone of you dont loose this magic feeling.. ciaoooo and sk8 or die.— alessio bollate
Any Powell-Peralta board or wheels (or both on the same set-up) are extremely exciting to ride. They truly are the best...— Tao Antrim
Dude, Not sure you even give a shit, but check it. I am 33, divorced, barely makin it, etc.. For the past few years I have been skating blanks, and mini logos cause I dont have the cash to throw down on a "pro" board. Shit sometimes I gotta go a week without skating to save the cash for a blank. The mini's are only 20 buck with grip, at the local shop. They are all 7.5 but its what I can afford. Anyway. I had been setting aside a few dollars, here and there, to get me one of your boards that I acutally like, and support a company I like. So I did, and it really did skate better(prob in my mind). It did last a bit longer which was cool. I can only get one about every four or five blanks, cause it takes that long to save up. I mean damn dude, it might not sound like a lot, but 50 bones is a ton. I got child support and bills, and all that good stuff. Kinda random I know, but the point of this email is to let you know, I am trying to support anyway I can. Good job on making great boards, keep up the good work. I have been skateboarding almost a quarter century and never contacted a single company. But I had to hit you up and let you know I dig your shit. Skate & Destroy,— mikey “gus” seibert
Awesome decks great to get on something familiar. The kids at the skate park love to try them out and when they do they actually understand what it's all about.— Scot
I really want to see Marcello Bastos given some kinda sponsor guys. He's a great skater. Top 10 in the Dew Tour he won in Rio. He isn't a chump he's the real deal he can skate. And if you guys won't or can't sponsor him for any reason please, PLEASE, send shout outs to other sponsors so he can get something going. The guy doesn't skate for the money, he just loves to skate. I'd love to see my bro-in-law sponsored. It would be the best thing in the world right now guys. Thanks for the listening. P+P all the way.— Jeffrey “The J-Dog” Smith
RAD!!!! Thanks for bringing the best label in skateboarding back!!!!!— Nick
IN BONES, WE TRUST!— joão firstname.lastname@example.org “curvadehill”
