So I decided to try out the Graffiti Ripper. I recently saw some pictures of it, and I got it in my mind that I need to have it! Let me tell you, I'm glad I got it. It's really nice. I'd say it's one of the best new concept boards from PP in a long time. The colorway is great, and the shape is very functional.
I'm not really a fan of the new school ripper size and shape - it's pretty gigantic at 10" - too big for me anyway. The 9" Graffiti Ripper is right in my wheelhouse. It's got a nice shape that narrows out in the tail, and it's 9" at it's widest point. I put 8.5" Theeve's on there, and 55mm STF's.
It's almost too pretty to skate! I might just order another one for a backup/keeper...
QUESTION: It's got a 'VCJ' signature on it - did he do this graphic? Obviously he did the ripper in the 80's, but did he add the mask?
