About the Vallely Elephant Artwork. Discovered at a Virginia Beach contest by Neil Blender and Lance, a young Mike Vallely was asked to join the Powell-Peralta team and quickly rose to fame as a premier street skater. After initially rejecting the Roach graphic, Vallely worked closely with VCJ on an elephant theme. Mike and his elephant deck were both very popular.Mike currently runs Street Plant, a 100% independently owned and operated family business. 100% Independent Skateboarding for Love, for Fun. No rules, no divisions, no schools. Just a Skateboard as a Paintbrush and the World as an Empty Canvas.
Powell-Peralta re-issue decks are close reproductions of their 1980s counterparts, featuring the original Pro graphics and shape, top graphic logo and spoon nose concave. They are manufactured by our partners in Mexico or in our Ventura skateboard factory, which is still directed by a few of the same craftsmen that made them originally. Truck Mounting - Top Mount.
