Arguably the most iconic skateboard graphic of all time, “The Ripper” was illustrated in 1983 by legendary Powell-Peralta artist V.C. Johnson. Originally, the graphic appeared as a “Bones Sold Here” dealer window sticker.
Later, the artwork made it’s way on to t-shirts, and finally decks! The Ripper graphic has stood the test of time and been an inspiration to countless artists both within the company and elsewhere.
About the K15 deck shape: Consider this an upgrade that replaces the K10 concave. You get a double kick nose with deeper, smoother concave and a longer wheelbase. Plus, you get a concave kick on the nose and tail and a scoop tail for a more secure foot placement without feeling trapped. Finally, you get less wheel bite because the steeper concave goes out to the edge of the board.
Either way, The Powell-Peralta Old School Ripper Reissue might just be your next favorite ride!
