vato rat!!!

man im lovin the "bones" on the top of the vato rat instead of powell. and the full powell peralta log on it almost brings a tear to my we just gotta make that thing a liiiiiiitle wider.. say.. 10" wide? and flatten the nose.square off the tail.. yeah... that will do it. then ill take 3. thanx =) looks really good though... long over due... nice job guys.


  • no prob. but im keepin my fingers crossed for the original pig shaped vato. the popsicle doesnt do it for me. were half way there now =)
  • we have passed the word on about that one so the people who need to know do. i want to see the dayglow orange with black rats personally.
  • me two. that sounds perfect!!!!!! lets make it happen people =)
  • haha rad! is this the start of the orange vato rat petition?
  • I was watching Bones Brigade I the other day. When Peralta pulls the Vato out of the TV, it made me want to smash my TV and pull out a sweet k15 version of the Vato popsicle with some STF's on it. "That's not a skateboard. THIS, is a skateboard!"

    So yeah - K15 that sucker!
  • just got my peralta hipster - sweet deck -
    totally agree that the k-15 concave is awesome-
    the graffitti ripper is something I've been looking
    for for awhile now, other companies have similar
    dimensions, but couldn't quite pull off the S.O.C.
    magic: I AM STOKED!!!!!!!!!
    I say make the vato along the lines of the hipster,
    only without the stinger sidecut, not quite a pig,
    not quite a popsicle either.
  • Hey cwalker3, you mean like this? That was my inspiration too!
  • that board is sweet!!!!!!!!
  • Thanks nick. OO

    yeah no prob.. is that yours? if it is.. its pretty f'n awesome. either way.. the picture is great! thats pretty much exactly what i want next.. i just dont want to pay for the vintage one.. im hopin for a re-issue. i wasnt into skating again yet when they did the last run..(in the REAL shape not a popsicle!!! =( i dont even care what colorway at this point. i just want one... its one of those boards i always admired as a kid.. but i always got somethin else instead.
  • THAT is a skateboard!
  • Just spied one of these on Craig's List for $75. Looks to be in decent shape, appears to be white (maybe silver). Just the deck and rails.
  • Yeah nick, its mine. One of my favs for sure.

    Oldschool, are you gonna grab that one on craigs list> if not let me know.
  • I'm not going for the one on Craig's List... It's in the Raleigh, NC area if you are interested.
  • Damn that craigslist board is right down the street from me. Might have to get it!
  • You little snake noskool...LOL.

    all of california is on the lookout for old decks. its so rare to come by old stock skate stuff in thrift shops or yard sales here.
  • zowenso you grab it if you want. I was joking! I'm too broke form the new SPF's and Nikes I bought!
