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

Dig it! Review by Hot Rod J
I’m 5’8 and 170lbs athletic build. The M is slightly snug but not tight. I ended up moving to a L and the fit is nice after a wash (Posted on 6/14/2022)

Failed expectations in a good way Review by Lewis Trimble
So I get a hankering to order a shirt that I used to rock 30 some odd years ago... I expected the quality of printing and shirt quality to be on par with most things nowadays. The shirt came in and it is super high-quality and the printing is as well. Very impressed overall and nice to have the shirt again. Will definitely be ordering more. (Posted on 9/19/2019)
