Here we have a 1984 Powell Peralta Skull and Snake original skateboard. So rare to find in this condition. Here is the story. Just as Mike McGill was perfecting the 540 McTwist in the summer of 1984 at Swedish summer camp, V. Was working on a new deck graphic for him. Since the “Skull & Bones” theme was proving to be popular, that was the direction chosen for McGill’s new deck. Mike’s input was to add the snake and lightning bolts since there is an abundance of both in his home state of Florida. McGill’s Skull & Snake is truly a classic skateboard icon. THIS IS NOT A REISSUE. The board has a 40 year old patina, but has been on my wall for the last 27 years plus. The Dogtown crew was a major influence, and I was fortunate to see all of them in action throughout my teenage years. I have sought out skateboards for my collection that had the most impact on me. The provenance and authenticity of my collection is without question. All of these boards and decks have been on display or storage. No complete boards or decks have seen daylight since acquisition. Please feel free to fire off any questions. These are the pictures of the item that I personally shot. Many other decks and boards being listed. This item is in the category “Sporting Goods\Outdoor Sports\Skateboarding & Longboarding\Vintage”. The seller is “gride3″ and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.
