Powell Peralta Caballero Ban This Reissue Shaped Old School Skateboard Deck. SHORT 4 TRUCK HOLE PATTERN. About the Cab Ban This Dragon Artwork.
In 1988 Powell-Peralta ran an "Artist Wanted" advertisement in TWS and Thrasher. The contest "winner" would get a job in the Powell-Peralta art department in Santa Barbara. The artist selected was Sean Cliver, mainly because his illustration style closely resembled VCJ's.Cliver's first deck design, the Barbee Ragdoll, was a departure from the traditional VCJ look, but when it came time to update the Caballero dragon, Sean emulated the master. At some point later, someone dubbed the graphic Cab "Ban This" Dragon since it was prominently featured in that video (think slow-motion sequence). Powell-Peralta re-issue decks are close reproductions of their 1980's 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.
