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

pres Review by John
Absolutely love this shirt!! (Posted on 4/20/2021)
Great shirt and service Review by Adam
Awesome throw back. Great quality. I found my first 1986 Hawk deck in my garage, hung it on my wall, then came here. Glad I did and there will be more shirts ordered in the future.

Great service too because I ordered the size I wore in 86 which was too small for grown Adam. The easily replaced with a larger size. (Posted on 7/10/2020)
