About the Vato Rat Bones Artwork:

The Vato Rat was created by artist Craig Stecyk. Coming from the Santa Monica Dogtown "Z-Boy" surf-skate scene of the 1970's, Stecyk was surrounded by Hispanic gang culture and graffiti. At the time he was airbrushing a lot of Zephyr surfboards and blended that influence into his work. The Vato Rat was one of the many symbols he used to decorate surfboards and generally mark territory at local surf spots. In 1983 Stacy Peralta decided to bring the Vato Rat back as a Powell-Peralta graphic. They called it "Rat Bones" and it was used in advertising, on decks, stickers and T-shirts.

Originally Released: 1983

Use for sudtom grip Review by Andrew
I cut out the two top rats and used that for the top of a deck and then cut out part of the Powell collage for bottom half. Looks sick and no one else has one like it. (Posted on 6/7/2021)
The Good Stuff Review by Bryan
This tape is super grippy and the graphics pop. I also love that it's available in sheets large enough to cover a 9.5" board. Just watch out when it's fresh... it'll take your skin right off during grabs! (Posted on 3/19/2020)
Grip tape with graphics Review by Jim Williams
Love this grip tape. I have been sk8 boarding since the early 70s. Back then grip tape was black and didn’t cover the whole board. Now we have awesome graphics like the Rat Bones on our grip tape. This graphic is right out of LA river drain covers don’t know what I mean, you’ve never driven into LA
Keep sk8ing (Posted on 5/27/2019)
