That Gator graphic is a classic, doesn't deserve to be on this list.  Also, I like the Durao graphic.  I always dig what Numbers puts out, though.

i've never understood why people thought the Gator graphic was sweet--for that matter, really any of the original Vision graphics, and that's coming from someone who has the original Mark Gonzales graphic tattooed...although, that "Old Ghost" John Grigley graphic was kind of cool...but fuck, this shit right here is awful:



Surprised you don't like it since Andy Takakjian drew both the first Gonz and Psycho Stick. As for the original Vision graphics, Greg Evans designed the op-art Gator and early text-based decks, as well as the ads. In '84 the first Gator graphic was so popular, 3 of 4 skaters I ever saw had one. In a way, those early graphics saved skateboarding. I kept only one deck from the '80s, a Sims Rocco streetstyler, the graphics comprised only of bold "Rocco" typeface, which I believe was designed by Greg Evans.

Yo I made my girl a setup with the psycho stick. I use it more than she does though. Its actually a pretty fun shape and also just doesn't deserve to be in this thread. I got it for a few bucks because it was mislabeled or something. Shalom


Had to adjust the rails but after that it was good to go. So stupid yet still great haha

Always this one.

The Herschel Baltrotsky days at Girl were a dark age of bad graphics.

Wanted to try a PS Stix board and this was on sale, couldn't bring myself to ride this monstrosity.
Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

The David Gonzalez one is cornier by a margin, but they're definitely still in the same realm of shit. Six-finger PJ has me laughing. They put a Nike shirt on Prod too, gross.

Os89, I'm liking that carpet.

*Let's throw this in the ring. What kind of spring break/Coachella neon circus douchebag would take this board seriously? Click image if you want your eyes to bleed more.

I find a lot of that stuff to be so lame. Oh you misspelled two words in an incoherent setnence. Lets throw that and the kurt vonnegut knock off sketch you did onto a board.

Squiggly lined sketches + stupid words forming a half baked sentence are what composes half of the krooked boards' art at this point. It was cool at first(debatable) but holy shit is it getting played out with the 100+ boards that follow that stupid ass style.

He's a fried, Fettyesque geezer that's never drawn anything good. Hack art. People love to pretend it isn't true, it's hilarious.

Pizza for sure - not enough wood chippers in the world for that company.

I'm triggered by this. Don P's tenure at workshopalongside Castrucci is fucking magical, best art department of that late 90s-early 2000s era by far IMO. Pendleton decks were utterly original at the time and have been endlessly imitated and bitten from ever since. I have 2 on the wall.



Sorry to be mad. Just didn't expect one of the GOATs to end up in this god-forsaken thread

I'd like to respectfully nominate the Two Felons x Element deck, and the Girl #prettysweet hashtag boards.

Alien, for being one of the best companies ever, definitely has some contenders form peak Dyrdek days.

Edit: I don't mean those Pendleton ones, love him. The ones from his TV show, etc.

Justified anger. Pendleton represents a glorious time in skateboarding, that was lost along the way.

That Hernandez is horrendous. Its an ok idea I guess if you're 11teen but the execution is total trash.

The left ear of the mouse and the way its connected to the 3rd characters head hurts my eyes to look at.

The glasses the nose the hair all are fucked.

I think maybe the mouse sat on his sunglasses or maybe his mice friends (pictured) sat on them in the car.

Iím not a detective but thatís my hypothesis based on personal sunglasses sitting on experience. 😎
