Powell Peralta X Metallica Collab

This limited collab from Powell Peralta and Metallica is one not to be missed. These decks feature a classic 80’s pig shape on re-issue 7 ply construction and a directional and two pop shapes on the near indestructible Fight Deck.

  • Powell Peralta X Metallica Skateboard Deck 10″ Classic OG Ripper Shape
  • Powell Peralta X Metallica Skateboard Deck Flight 9.265″ Shape 192 Lime
  • Powell Peralta X Metallica Skateboard Deck Flight 8.75″ Shape 245
  • Powell Peralta X Metallica Skateboard Deck Flight 9″ Shape 246 Lime

Why a Metallica collab? No doubt Metallica has been the soundtrack to one or more of your heated skate sessions and they have provided the soundtrack from many amazing skateboard video parts. Their connection with skateboarding goes way back to the 1980s when they had a line of decks available through Zorlac Skateboards. The artist Pushead not only penned graphics for Zorlac and some of the most collectable skate designs including Thrasher T-Shirts, but also set the graphic image for Metallica with his artwork adorning many of their album covers and T-Shirt designs.

Metallica is an American heavy metal band formed in 1981 in Los Angeles by vocalist and guitarist James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich, and has been based in San Francisco for most of its career. Metallica is considered to be one of the founding “big four” bands of thrash metal, alongside Megadeth, Anthrax, and Slayer. Metallica’s current lineup comprises founding members and primary songwriters Hetfield and Ulrich, longtime lead guitarist Kirk Hammett, and bassist Robert Trujillo.

The controversy with the Powell graphic stems from which Metallica bass player uses the guitar featured in the graphic. Was it Cliff, Jason, Robert, or none of the above?

About Powell Peralta Skateboards & Wheels

Powell Peralta is an American skateboard company originally founded as Powell Skateboards by George Powell in the 1970s. Stacy Peralta, one of the top pros of the era, joined the company which became Powell Peralta around 1978. The company rose to prominence in the 1980s as skateboarding began maturing as a sport.

The company has a military theme to its marketing and terminology and has become popular due to the art direction of industry legends Craig Stecyk III and Vernon Courtlandt Johnson. VCJ is the artist behind the classic ripper graphic immediately associated with Powell Peralta and has produced some of the most collectible skateboard graphics of the last 40 years.

Stacy Peralta left the company in 1991 and Powell continued to produce skateboard equipment under the Powell label again. The two company founders reunited a few years back, and Powell Peralta now thrives on producing reissue products for the market. They also have brands such as Bones Bearings and RollerBones roller skate wheels under their wing.

Powell Peralta has never stopped innovating and produces some top-notch modern equipment like Bones SPF & STF wheels and composite Flight decks, which are light and strong.
