Perhaps the most iconic and legendary skateboard manufacturer of all time, Powell skateboards rose to prominence in the 1980's as skateboarding blossomed. Cofounder George Powell, an ex-aerospace engineer, launched a career building skateboards after being laid off in 1976. He teamed up with Stacy Peralta in 1978 to manage the prestigious Bones Brigade team. Featuring legends such as Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerrero, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain, and Rodney Mullen, the Bones Brigade crafted the brand as a standout in the skateboard world. These amazing skateboarders redefined what was possible on a skateboard by constantly pushing the boundaries to the limit, and they helped push the skateboard scene from its infancy into the limelight of modern culture.
After a long legacy of prominence within skateboarding's earliest days, Powell Peralta still creates amazing skateboard products to this day. He is currently producing re-issued decks with iconic 80's artwork. Street decks and old-school designs paying homage to bowl and transition skateboarding are also being produced. He also produces standout skateboard wheels in a variety of different shapes, hardness ratings, and sizes. Whether you're new to the activity of skateboarding or are a seasoned pro, Powell caters to your needs and desires - check out their product line for both new and classic inspiration.
