The Roach graphic was originally designed by VCJ in 1987 and offered to Mike Vallely for his first pro model. Mike rejected the idea and wanted an elephant instead. So, it became a "non-pro" generic deck. A checkerboard background was added and it was produced in Bonite construction on the "Gee-Gaw" shape. This "modified" version gives new meaning to the VCJ classic. Puff, puff, pass.
Our NEW Powell Peralta popsicles are made in our Skate One China factory using Skate One AirLam® presses, and the same maple and glue to match our engineering specifications. These new decks have assorted color stained top veneers along with a red center ply. They’re light, thin, have excellent torsional rigidity, and crisp pop.
