Powell Christmas


I would have thought the Christmas edition skateboards would have lost their appeal by now, and frankly, I don’t get it. They must be popular since Powell keeps issuing them, along with some Bones Brigade Christmas ornaments. Actually, they looks like they still have a 2013 edition board available. I do “get it” of course. People want to buy limited edition items and Powell wants to make money. Skateboard collecting is an odd thing. I can’t imagine anyone else makes Christmas-themed performance sports equipment that is fully functional and intended to be collected.

    I don’t get it and I don’t need those boards.
    Didn’t that stuff start with a Christmas variation on the Ripper-board? Some time after the Homer Simpson Ripper-board came out, I believe.

    Is the Ripper on the right Hitler? (You know, because one ball.)

  2. They were probably made for their riders to use throughout the holidays and since they already have the design why not sell them? I’d imagine that seasonal boards don’t do well for them.

    Christmassy graphics are contrary to my (delusional) self image of bad ass destroyer while skating. That shape is pretty terrible too. However, Powell is still cooler than NHS when it comes to gimmicks.
