OK do you guys have a deal with Hawk?
  • Because here is a Tech Deck ad from this months Transworld that has the Iron Cross Screaming Chicken as being the next Retro Tech Deck. Does this mean that we might be seeing a Hawk Reissue from you finally? Another interesting note is that Birdhouse is not mentioned anywhere in the Legal crap Just Powell-Skate One.

  • no he only signed on for the powell classic tech deck line
  • thats a great colorway for that board........ even if u cant skate it. that tony... what a tease =(
  • yeah birdhouse wont be mentioned in that ad because that graphic has nothing to do with his company.... just his name. which is the the only thing keeping the board from being re-released.
  • yea that graphic belongs to powell tony had to pay them some money to use it for his birdhouse board in the 90s
  • But because of his name you can't reissue it. LAME!
  • yeah they could probably make it without his name.. then they would be no different than vision. and who wants a hawk board without hawks name on it? not me. sucks.
  • that would be pretty weird haha
  • did you guys see this?
