cant wait for the brigade autobiography, since following the bones brigade from the 80s and seeing them on tour in 1989 at romford skatepark essex (uk) and latimer road in london (uk) on the huge vert ramp they were great times now im 38 years old but the memories live on and i still have a few decks from way back then but not for skating just hung on the wall , the re issues that have been brought out have been great , but how long we gotta wait for a mullen chess and a guerrero dagger/flame , come on you guys at powell sort out us old school skaters from back in the day , with the decks we still crave even now !!!

Is it ever possilbe to make the rat bones in a SPF, with the same shape? Food for thought. Or the mini cubics as a 60mm and SPF. I'm 53yrs. and I love those shapes. Thank you and have a bless it Christmas. Steve Guzman

One of the greatest moments of my life: My dad bought me a Frankie Hill "Bulldog" pro-model at "American Sports" in Hamburg in 1991.
I had such a great time with this board! in 1992 it was updated with blue Rat Bones II in 95a/60mm... i was a lucky guy!
One of my best friends in this day drove a Tommy Guerrero "Flaming Dagger/pointed nose".
That will be awesome if u bring back this deck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
U guys are great!

— Florian “Flow666” Spiecker

I just recieved my Flamming dagger Guerrero deck I won on ebay. I love it!!! I can't stop looking at it. I plan on getting new indy trucks with Street Bones wheels and all the powell gear, Nose bone and rib bones to finish it off. I first had one back in the day when I was 12. My wife went mental, I thought she was going to leave me. I paid $350 Aust dollars, which I thought was worth it.
I plan to go skating again with my 4 year old boy and teach him about the Bones Brigade. Thanks for the memories.

Hey Powell-Peralta, just wanted to drop by to show some love. I love the products and at the skateshop I work at, Powell-Peralta seems to be the most common and greatest discussion topic I have with my older customers either buying a board for themselves to get back into it or one for a new generation in the legacy. Although I'm only 18, I'm a huge fan and just wanted to say that I appreciate your existence and what you have for skateboarding. I have your shiny silver logo sticker on the back of my car so everyone knows what I'm about. I just had one request and that would be for you guys to make your decks come in a few different sizes because I ride 8.1-8.25 but I'm in love with some of the graphics for your 8.5 decks like the new school ripper and more. If only they were a little smaller, I'd get em in a heartbeat. Much love - Tom

— Tom “Atticus” Fry,

I just got my mini skull and sword skateboard in the mail. the quality is so high in this product, and the graphic is sick. from now on all I will buy is Powell-Peralta for my skating needs.

The Bones Brigade has always been a part of my life! My first board was a blue ripper with trackers and ratbones. Epic. It was stolen, but always rode Powell Peralta. Art work, quality (except for the XT decks!) was always the best! The day I found Animal Chin was the best day of my life. I must have watched that video over 10000 times. Thanks again for the memories, and look forward to the Bones Brigade Documentary.

I ride a Powell Steve Steadham retro re-issue skateboard and I am the preeminent handstand specialist currently in the world. I appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman episode 15.148. Simply click on my name (Brad Hauser) to see my profile on IMDb. or google Brad Emehiser my prv. legal last name and then click on Brad Hauser IMDb. you can also see my on youtube under HANDSTAND MAN 01 (sorry some loser wrote hate speech in my comment section and I lost the passcode to that one). or just google Brad Hauser handstand man to see my photos by Gary L. Friedman of the I have worked with Ray Zimmerman of concrete disciples and I will be shooting all new mind blowing video in 3D in HB, LB, Venice and other cities and I will be shooting from my POV which is upside down at up to 25 to 30 mph. That is my concept and my intellectual property so please respect it.


— Brad “HandStand Man” Hauser,

Longshot but I wanted to let Stacy know that in his skate documentary my home is shown in Encino CA. I was blown away when I saw it and knowing some of the original greats skated MY pool is amazing! I would empty it if some of those people wanted to come skate it again after so many years! I think that would be pretty cool. Anyway...if you ever wanted to make that happen let me know and I am down.

PS - Brad Bowman was a high school friend of mine.

Powell classic retro re-issues such as the Steve Steadham model offer the ultimate in stability which is extremely important for me as I am a handstand specialist. I am the only skateboarder in the world to bomb Hill Street, Signal Hill, CA in a handstand on my skateboard which resulted in an amazing velocity of acceleration and also where I started it went from 10 degrees to 20 degrees to 40 degrees to almost 45 degrees of slope or more, all while upside down in the most insane HandStand Skateboarding footage which was captured on digital video and which I am finally taking out of the vault to have a Physics dude study it for Skateboarding world records of physics for acceleration, angle of degree in a handstand on a skateboard, and the enormous G-forces which my body had to sustain when I crashed. I was in and out of the hospital for a year and had to have 4 surgeries on my left knee as my Patella tendon exploded (my kneecap ended on near my thigh) which had to be re-attached in major surgery and then it got infected with MRSA (methecylin staph resistant aerelus) which went into the bone and I was facing amputation. Dr. Laurie Mortara a USC Professor of I.D. saved my leg but it was a very long road as it kept re-infecting and I had to rehab three separate times and learn to walk three separate times. I credit the stability of the Powell Steve Steadham re-issue with saving my life, as well as God through my guardian angels and as well as my talented surgeon and extremely good training prior to the attempt (I practiced segments of the hill in a handstand for nearly a month). For legal reasons I never released the video as I would not want it on my conscious if a younger skate attempted the same and perished on that hill in a millie second which is really what should have happened to me.

I am now in the best shape of my life and I am planning on setting at least two new Guiness book of world records, most likely on my very trusty Powell re-issue (the one I crashed on has been retired by me and some luck dude in Long Beach, CA is riding it.

My brother Troy is a contractor right there in SB, CA (Safeguard Roofing) and I love the fact that your product is not only made in the USA but also made in a town I know very very well and visit often.

Best Regards to Mr. Powell the Legend Stevie C. and the krew at Powell.

one and only board i skated. Still remember Christmas morning waking up to the Caballero deck white with the red bats and dragon, g&s trucks and powell t-bone wheels that was almost 25 years ago and i still have the board and my son is riding it now.. also have the blue one...

— Patrick “Gritz” Coogan

You cannot underestimate what a HUGE part of my (and all my friends) life P&P skates were.
Always the bench mark for innovation and style in skateboarding - in bot h their sponsored pros and their product.
Nothing will ever feel as special as it felt setting up a new powell & peralta deck back in the day and popping that first ollie on it!!
I'm so stoked also that Mike V is back on powell - the guy's a legend and remains the most influential skater to me personally in skatings history.
I'm 40 years old (and proud) still skating - now with my kids, and its not nostalgia, it's appreciation of worth..Thanks powell & thanks mike!!

— Jay Butler

Wow! Art work is amazing and the boards ride great. What more could you want?

— Darren

I purchased one of your boards it got ran over by a jeep today and it still works perfectly I've been the type to use a single brand but I'm keeping this brand it is super legit

— Roy Raas

Your products are #1! Whatever you're doing, you're doing it right! Keep it up.

— Mike

Hy guys, I love the brand since childhood! I'm a full grown up now.. but still with a kid mind. I started drawing on skateboard a few years ago and i wondered if you might be interested in some designs. I've decided to draw on old school boards only from now on! real stuff! Peace.

— Xavier “Mr.X” Thilly

I started skating back in '87 and one of the best gifts my "dad" ever gave me growing up was my first pro PP-red skull/snake "Mike McGill" skateboard. It meant so much to me. Other boards I had growing up were..."Skull and Sword", "Per Welinder", and Cab's "Chinese Dragon"...Those were the best moments of my childhood; things have changed since then but I'm glad you guys are re-issuing the classics. Thanks for the memories PP...your proudest fan...

— Alex “A-1”

This is a brand of board I have love through out my childhood and adult life. I am excited to be associated with this website and hope learn of their growth and product development as they excel.
