Original Powell Peralta Blind Ripper Board. After Steve Rocco took Rudy Johnson and Guy Mariano away from Powell Peralta, Powell launched an attack ad on smaller brands, which Rocco felt was aimed directly at him, seeing how he was one of the only small brands around at the time. Rocco decided to shoot back and let out the now famous "Dear George" ad. The add shows Johnson, Lee & Gonz all standing holding their new blind pro models, each ripping off a Powell Peralta graphic.The George thing was a phenomenal sales success. But you gotta understand that everyone just sees the ad, but we never did anything unprovoked. George also did an ad that ran before where he made fun of small companies. We were the only small skater-owned company, and it was aimed so blatantly at us that I just got pissed. Powell's response to Worlds ad was a board designed by Sean Cliver with the Blind Ripper, shortly after Sean left Powell for World and the rest is history. This is a screen printed board, not a heat transfer! Unlike heat transfers, that over time will dry out, get brittle, crack and flake off of your deck leaving you with a nothing but a bad looking semi blank board, Screen printed graphics will last a lifetime! Extremely rare, Get it now while you can! Keywords: Powell Peralta, Santa Cruz, Vision, New Deal, G & S, Alva, Dogtown, Hosoi, Natas, World Industries, Blind, SMA, Natas.
