In the late 1980’s, Powell Peralta had an established vert team that was maxed out with the likes of Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Mike McGill and Lance Mountain. In an effort to expand the companies pro roster to include the growing ‘Street-Style’ market, they began adding new ‘street’ pros. After Tommy Guerrero it was Mike Vallely, then Ray Barbee.

The Powell Peralta Per Welinder 9.715″ Deck has the Viking Skull graphic as illustrated by V.C. Johnson in 1984. The fanged fantasy graphic was meant to reflect Per’s Swedish origins. It was initially assigned to his freestyle model without the rock texture background, which was added in an updated version in 1986. In 1987 the new full-length graphic was adapted for a street model as Per began performing freestyle/street demos. The eighth century Runic stone lettering spells out Per’s name as well as the background quote, “Search and strive, push beyond with strength, yours not theirs, that is the key.” Something Per came up with. The graphic was also used for T-shirts and stickers.

In 1987 street skating was rapidly gaining popularity. Steve Caballero not only excelled at vert skating but was a top contender on the “Street-Style” circuit. Powell-Peralta decided to introduce an additional Cab deck model specifically designed for street. Artist V.C. Johnson created a new dragon graphic with a bats & bones background. Cab’s name was also created in the bat shape since Cab was into Batman at the time. The Powell-Peralta logo was made using the Animal Chin font, also a sign of the times.

While McGill was at summer camp in Sweden inventing the McTwist, Court was working on a replacement graphic for Mike’s F-14 Jet Fighter. He consulted McGill on additional elements to add to the design, to make it more personalised for him. Mike, hailing from Florida, suggested the snake and lightning bolts as there are plenty of both there.
