Just as Mike McGill was perfecting the 540 McTwist in the summer of 1984 at Swedish summer camp, Vernon Courtlandt Johnson was working on a new deck graphic for him. Since the "Skull & Bones" theme was proving to be popular, that was the direction chosen for McGill's new deck. Mike's input was to add the snake and lightning bolts since there is an abundance of both in his home state of Florida. McGill's Skull & Snake is truly a classic skateboard icon. It was originally released in 1984.

This is Mike's custom current shape that he rides on vert, in bowls, pools and transition.

Amazing Review by Matt

This is my first flight deck. I wanted to see if the hype was true and it is. I can feel how stiff the board feels when going really fast it just shoots you around bowls. It’s definitely noticeable. It takes a minute to get used to because you kinda get that “woah this is different” feel the first time you carve really hard but now I never want to go back to a 7 ply. (Posted on 2/11/2020)

Unreal! Can’t even say how impressed I am with this flight deck. And I used to ride an XT back in the day! This will not be my last flight deck. Keep throwing the classic graphics on them. Can’t go wrong! (Posted on 2/7/2020)

Skate Enthusiast Review by Levi Cooper

Powell Peralta sets the standard in design, craftsmanship, and scientific innovation excellence. The concave on this deck is so sleek, I promise you, it will blow you away. The board is super light, but you can feel the density and texture of how strong this really board is. The contrast of the red and pink background really sets off the skull in the foreground in a very pleasing manner. I put neon green rib bones on mine to protect the graphic from board slide wear and tear. The green really pops with the red and pink background hues. The nose pocket curvature is sublime, making ollies and flip tricks a pure joy to do. The tail is slightly smaller in width and a bit more squared, compared to typical popsicle decks. I personally enjoy that attribute. I am from the old school era and have skated 10 in. decks to modern 8.5 in. decks and I feel with my size 14 shoe, the 9.01 measurement on this deck blends old school size and with modern light weight advantages. I recommend, if you can find one, snag it and dive into self completion! (Posted on 11/15/2019)

Took me awhile to get my hands on one of these but I was not disappointed when I finally did. I’m pretty sure Powell-Peralta teamed up with aliens ???? for this technology. The graphic absolutely jumps off the deck and I have never seen a one so thin and light. Aliens.... I’m telling you..... Aliens! (Posted on 11/4/2019)
So awesome just wish... Review by Donovan

I love the new flight decks. The construction is simply awesome and the claims of greater and longer lasting snap are true. I love that there have been a few of the OG graphics released on this platform. Same graphics I remember back in school in the 80's. I do wish they could actually keep these in stock and I'm kind of hesitant to skate mine because I can't replace it. I also like the older McGill with no eyes much better. :)
Thanks for sticking around PP! (Posted on 10/30/2019)

I absolutely love the flight decks. The pop doesn’t go anywhere and the decks can take an absolute beating. (Posted on 8/14/2019)
