I used to have the blue Cab Dragon and Bat deck around '88. I found a pic of that deck on the web and ever since I feel like I am 11 years old again. My girlfriend thinks I am nuts for even thinking about buying a board. Thanks for bringing back my childhood.

Powell-Peralta should join forces with Vans and make a p/p shoe in slipon and old skools

I'm about to lose my mind due to the sheer aweseomeness of what I'm seeing! I was born in '72 and lived every day of much of the '80s on my PP boards (and in my PP shirts). Skating was such a thick part of our culture and our lives, and I have my Bones wheels, Gullwing trucks, and Powell-Peralta boards to thank for it. I honestly owe my health as a pre-teen and teen to skating - every day, rain or shine, with a horde of buddies. My son is now 3 1/2, and I'm buying him an old-school skate for his next birthday...just like Daddy's old one. None of this new-schools stuff...he's going to learn inverts, rocket airs, and backside bonelesses from his old man! Thanks for bringing it all back...

— Chris Raleigh

Your site is the best. There's not that many old school companies left. And I'm glad that Powell-Peralta is still around. Thanx for still existing.

Due to the Re-issues coming out! I have taken up skateboarding again after a 10year break (motor x and then cars and girls, put my life on hold) but I'm back now ...,.ripping it on my ripper,I dare anyone who was a serious skater back in the day not to buy and set one up! its amazing how after an hour on my re-issue I was back no top form - like i had never stopped -skating half pipe ramps is now something I think about and do ,allot,all because of POWELL PERALTA RE-ISSUE,video games and listening to music is great,but lets not get too carried away!Skateboarding is a cheap hobby and very social! Please bring out the claw graphic out again, I smashed my teeth out on one like that back in the day! lol Respect to all the old school skaters.SK8 ON!!!!

I've been getting back into skating since a 15 year break. This past year, I must have bought 3 new generation decks. But none of them compare to the original bones brigade decks. My favorite, Tommy's Dagger, Bonite XT. Any chance of reprinting on maple or re-making this deck with Bonite+Maple (XT)? And keep up the great work, you guy are great.

I used to surf the concrete riding my Per Welinder board for years replacing it every now and then when it got too ragged or broke. I'd pick up Powell stickers religiously because you guys had some of the sickest designs. My parents loved it because I was outside doing something active and staying healthy. I'm older now and onto other things like weight lifting/bodybuilding to stay healthy, but I still enjoy the sport. I hope that some day you will issue some of the older Powell symbols on t-shirts in XXL for guys like me. Some of us older guys like to revisit our youth and your company has certainly played a major role in mine.

Thanks for re-issuing the Jay Smith board. I used to ride a blue concave at Texas Pipeline Skate park, after it was closed of course! Got mine on order!!

— robert wecker

Awesome site, brings back fond memories i still have a second edition tony hawk board with independent trucks, rat bones and swiss bearings that i got from ron jons surf shop cocoa beach florida thanks for the memories.

— ben davenport

Would love to see re-pressings of the old Hawk / Mountain boards... so many great memories tied up in those pieces. Please, make it so!

— Christian

Thanks so much for the reissues, I had the Steve Steadham board back in high school 1986. I used to keep it my car at all times until my car got stolen in 1995 and unfortunately they took my board, they could have kept my car, I just wanted my board back. I just bought the reissue of the Steadham, Skull & Sword, Ripper, and the 30th Anniversary. Thanks again,

— Joe Torrance

I am glad to see that skateboarding has made a huge comeback. The art, the sun the fun. What they tried to take away in the late 80's is back! My last deck was the Underhill cross, removed from my feet by a grotesquely obese security guard at the local shopping center. please if you could release the old vert decks, HAWK, UNDERHILL, and yes like the lad in Estonia I would like to see the Welinder reissued also. Thank you for the decades of fun!!!!

I'm at lost for words. F--- n rad! It has been a long time since I have had anything from my past feel totally rad!!! Way too often memories start off good but end up in more f---n pain that lead too block n it out. By just not being what I dreamed of. Your Powell Classic site pictures, gallery, have open up that gut turning fire that drives us when we were young. When scoring a ride to the skatepark was our only problem. Once there dude nothing could kill your damn trip! Oasis skatepark in Diego under that massive freeway traffic noise. Smell of gas fumes kind of added too it! May be that's why it didn't hurt when id eat turf when my trucks would hang on that key hole pool. Prob. Too damn loaded from all that morning traffic! Kiss play n on the loud p.A. That was the shit! Thanks Powell! For bring n all those rad days back into this 40 yr old mad rat! Cal rage in AZ. Late! P.S. I still think decks should only have one tail and a snub nose.

— Frank Aguilara

My first board was a Steve Caballero 88, and my first good trick was the boneless... Now I'm old but I love skateboarding.
