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

Artwork by: Craig Stecyk

Super Well Made Review by Todd
Rating
Getting back into the sport to support my kid who is getting into it, so I've been away from some of the changes to boards in the past 15 years. This board feels so solid from the second you get on it. Wheels and bearings are quick, and the trucks feel great, even with no adjustment after being received. Great purchase and we are extremely happy with it. (Posted on 9/8/2020)
Vato Rat is classic! Review by Dan S
Rating
I had been waiting for this one to become available and it was well worth the wait. The Vato Rat design is a classic. The deck is such high quality you can tell just by looking at it and it proves it the second you step on it. The trucks, wheels, bearings, and grip tape are excellent. I love everything about this board. (Posted on 8/27/2020)
