Wanted to let George Powell know that the bones brigade has always been a great motivator in my skating.. I've been skating from 1988 to 2007 and going strong making skateboarding happen in the NWT, thanks for making great skate products. Thats all!

— Vance “Sanderson”

I would like to say that I have been skating since 1978 and only stoped hardcore skating in the early 90s I still skated but the SK8 scene died and all of my SK8 buddies all grew up got married.I never seemed to grow up as far as loosing my love for this sport I am now SK8ing a 30th anniversity ripper and go Sk8ing with my 8 year daughter who SK8s a miny Hawk.I will never stop SK8ing and will always SK8 Powell products because when it comes to quality thier is just no substitute.In closing I would like to thank Powell for sticking to thier roots of supplying products that allways deliver. Fathfull till the end.

— Mike Lahn

PP - Thank you for the priceless childhood memories! At 30 yrs. old, I'm just as mesmerized by the artwork of your late 80s decks as I was when I was a 9 yr. old skate rat. PP and the Bones Brigade turned skateboarding into a lifetime obsession for me. I still remember when my folks gave me the green Rodney Mullen skeleton/chessboard freestyle deck for my birthday... one of the greatest b-day presents I've ever received. It's nice to know that with all of the posers and corporate thugs who have infiltrated skateboarding over the years, you guys still stand for its essence - FUN!! And you can bet that my kids will be riding your reissues.

— Greg

Hi dudes, please make a volume 2 with all the tracks from Ban This and Propaganda!

— Haenna

I'm psyched with the reissues but I wish there would be some Rodney Mullen freestyle reissues. I would kill to have one of his boards. At the moment, however, I'm getting a Kevin Harris freestyle board. I love freestyle.

— Marshall

It's amazing how many people (Especially the kids) are ditching the stair sets to go to an empty lot to do 360's! I'm seeing old school freestyle making a comeback. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to get trucks currently with the short width to fit freestyle boards. I love the reissues, though, they're awesome!

— James

Like many others, I'm in my 30s now but still reflect fondly on staying up late watching the BB videos many years ago. Some of my best memories. In life, not many people get to say they did something that affected so many people in a positive way. Thanks for everything.

The 64mm Bowl Bombers are the fastest wheels on the planet. Hands down. Less work, more speed. Love em!

Old timer skater, remembering good times

— alex ramirez

I got out of skating for a long time. When I was in younger I skated everyday. My son recently started skating. I found myself on his board teaching him to ride. My wife later asked me what I wanted for Valentine's day. I told her that I would really like a skateboard. She purchesed me an old school Mike Valley Elephant Head. I was stoked when she gave it to me. I now find myself daydreaming of surfing the streets every day. I love my board and the memories of my youth that were engrossed in Powell Peralta and the Bones Brigade. Thank you for the memories and the freedom I feel when I ride.

— Chris Walcott

These guys ARE Skateboarding! Lords of Dogtown has been our inspiration, my husband and two sons ride, regular and our motorized sk8drive attachments, but without guys like these, hey.

— stephanie “steph” gross, sk8drive


— Nick

I believe you guys should give Frankie Hill another chance for Powell-Peralta .The money you guys had to spend for his accident will be made back in reissuing his board. People don't want his other companies boards. They want Powell board. Just my thought.

— leonard majdecki

Hello Powel-Peralta, I have been skating for ten almost eleven years and prefer the older skating style than the current. I love the fact that you produce classic skateboards and skate items still for young shredders like myself to skate! My question is, "when are you going to re-issue the Tony Hawk Chicken Skull deck?" I used to have a late 1987 blue one, but I skated the sucker to death! I can't really afford to buy a new one off eBay since there so expensive.. almost $1000!! YIKES! Anyway thanks, for reading this message and keep shredding!

Saw Lance at a home depot, I knew it was him being a long time Peralta Team Disciple. Asked for his autograph and shared with him what the Brigade and Powell meant to me and still means to me and my son who also skate. He was Totally cool, calm, not conceited, unlike the big head pro jerks that act like their the **it! I was so stocked that as I walked away I though.."No one is gonna believe this", then I thought, DUH!! phones have cameras now, why didnt I take a I ran out to the parking lot to look for Lance and saw him headed toward his truck and said, I'm sorry but can I take a picture with you, and with that calm attitude that I spoke of earlier, took the shot and went home. I have the picture in my living room for all to see. Thank you LANCE, AND THANK YOU POWELL PERALTA

— fausto rivera, nahum

galley powell am Brazilian and I've always liked the story and everything about dog town and I think the wheels on the slides so incredible bombers like the grips are perfect.

— valter “cabelera”

Man I go way back wit the bones son! I'm future primitive and still searching for animal chin! My boards- Tommy Guerrero, Lance Mountain,and a Hawk. We talking a brother in the late 80's early 90's in Hattiesburg,MS skating. Now I live New Orleans with 2 boys of my own, a 12y.o. and a 6y.o. they skate now. Imagine that.Skateboarding is not a crime.
