Skull and Bones meets Hawaii. Mostly skulls and bones actually. Gaze on these and wonder.

  1. Shit! One of my neighbours had the ‘Skate Zombie’ one! I didn’t know they actually advertised. I thought they were Argos jobs.

  2. The Pyromaniac was my first board in 1986. Mine was dark blue on the fish tail shape with blue plastics. It was flat as a pancake, heavy as hell, and all the plastics were hollow. It had the awful bubble tail saver which after a week had worn through! I remember is being shrunk wrapped, but the trucks and plastics had been fitted afterwards. Bloody nightmare. I wanted a Kryptonics Ripstik, having seen it in a Faze 7 ad in RAD the same year. Was pretty gutted.

  3. Haha
    Yea just come across this.
    My first board was the skull one ripping off McGill. I wanted skate zombie. Surprisingly my mum deemed that inappropriate but a skull with a snake in its eyes sockets was better.
    I think that because it was advertised in rad it leant it legitimacy.
