This classic design is one of the coolest looking top skateboard decks from the old school days of wide skateboards and big wheels!

Oh yes, this is the deck I am ordering next without a doubt.


Purple Mike Vallely Elephant old school 10 deck from Powell Peralta.

Timeless design and shape, love the bold purple colors and the elephant is awesome!

In 1987, Vallely turned pro and Powell Peralta released his first pro model skateboard. After an attempt to release Vallelys pro model with graphics of a large bug, it was later changed to the now well-known elephant graphics.

Vallely stated that the idea for the graphics came to him after watching a National Geographic television special about elephants. The graphics on Mikes Elephant board were drawn by legendary skateboard artist V. Courtland Johnson.

In 1989, Vallely quit Powell Peralta. At the time Powell Peralta was the biggest skateboarding brand in the world which sponsored the best and most talented skaters. After quitting, Vallely helped form the small skater run company called World Industries with Steve Rocco, Jesse Martinez and Rodney Mullen. While riding for World Industries he helped create a newly shaped skateboard deck, which eventually became the industry standard. The model included rounding both the tail and nose, rather than rounded nose and straight edged tail.
