This fake Kryptonics complete is even less well known than the first Kryptonics bootleg that I posted on S&A. I had to check AOS to find out that the original graphic came from a 1989 team deck, called ‘Footprint’. Also, I have never seen bootlegs with this shape and coloured grip. Kryptonics started to make crappy boards near the end of the 90s (I think around ’97), but this is definitely a bootleg, since the seller confirmed that he got it when he was a kid in the 80’s. Price: £0,99 on Gumtree!
Thanks to Nicola Rushent for the pictures.
Not too sure that this picture on the front has anything to do with Kryptonics:
And the original Kryptonics team deck from 1989 (sorry for the pic, but this deck seems impossible to find), as seen on Art of Skateboarding:
