About the Skull and Sword Artwork:

The Rodriguez "Skull & Sword" deck was the first pro signature deck graphic produced by Powell-Peralta. The graphic was conceived by Ray and Illustrated by V.C. Johnson with art direction from George Powell in 1979. 

Initially released in two distinctly different shapes; a 10" x 30" "Widetail" version and a 10" x 28.5" "Snub Nose,” it came in "Brite-Lite" Dayglo yellow, orange, purple and green. In years to follow, it was made in various different colors and a Powell-Peralta logo was added. In 1983 Ray's signature was removed and replaced with a Powell-Peralta script logo. The graphic was also used for T-shirts and stickers.

Originally Released: 1979

Artwork by: Vernon Courtlandt Johnson


 long 4 - 2.5" old school truck hole pattern

Great deck Review by de Hoop
What a great deck, nice to have an exact replica of my favorite skateboard graphic. This one will be a wall board because of the originality... (Posted on 11/9/2017)
Even better in person Review by David
I received this deck on Halloween, seemed fitting. I have 8 other Ray Bones decks and love this design. The purple is much better in person than I imagined. The tail is not as curved as some of the other reissues of this graphic. It looks like a fantastic deck to ride. Mine is just a wall hanger. Way to go Powell for giving us what we asked for.
