Powell Peralta GeeGah Ripper 9.75" Deck

In 1986 jump ramps were all the rage. Easy to build, portable and fun to launch off of. Unfortunately, decks were snapping left and right. Powell-Peralta deck returns were so high the company sought ways to make decks stronger and more resistant to jump breaks. One solution was Bonite construction. Another was the "Gee-Gaw" shape which had bumps to reinforce the break zone area. Why "Gee-Gaw?" Ask Chris Iverson. This shape was also used for the Skull & Sword graphic. They were originally produced between 1987 and 1988.

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 was used as a "Bones Sold Here" dealer window sticker. Next, the artwork found it's way onto t-shirts and eventually decks. The Ripper graphic has stood the test of time and has been a staple of the Powell-Peralta line for over 30 years.

Poor job wrapping for shipping

I have been waiting for this deck for my wall collection. It arrived with bubble wrap loose not taped on top of the deck in the box holding the bottom of the deck against the inside of the cardboard. Needless to say it has a rub mark missing paint on the rippers head. Deck is still in box. I can take pics. I contacted them 5 min after it arrived with no response. Bums me out. I’d find a skate shop who cares!! I bet this doesn’t get posed.
