About the Ripper Artwork:
Arguably the most iconic skateboard graphic of all time, "The Ripper" was illustrated in 1983 by legendary Powell-Peralta artist V.C. Johnson. Originally the graphic was used as a "Bones Sold Here" dealer window sticker. Next, the artwork found it's way onto t-shirts and eventually decks. The Ripper graphic has stood the test of time and has been a staple of the Powell-Peralta line for over 30 years.

You may ask: Is this board good for a beginner?… absolutely. Is this board good for someone advanced and just looking to get from my car to class or from class to class and can be stowed away easily?… Well, all those are good for this board.
A 28” long board is more stable and ideal for learning, but for the smaller fast learners … the 22” is the way to go.
