The Powell Peralta Vato Rat Skateboard Deck can be configured with grip tape, trucks, wheels, bearings and hardware so it's shipped to you ready to skate!

This Powell Peralta Vato Rat Skateboard Deck has LIGAMENT™ Technology for a longer-lasting ride.

Available in 7.88 x 31.67 Green/Yellow, 8 x 32.125 Black/Silver or White/Black and 8.25 x 32.5 Rainbow deck sizes. The 7.88 and 8.0 decks are in the K12 concave/shape, while the 8.25 is the K15 concave/shape.

All Powell-Peralta LIGAMENT™ decks have one wider, more robust polymeric strap, instead of the three skinnier straps that were found in the original LIGAMENT™. The reinforcing strap is strong and flexible, like the ligaments that connect your muscles to your bones. Even when you break the board, the ligament strap will hold your deck together allowing you to ride out of it, instead of doing the groin-tearing splits. LIGAMENT™ decks weigh the same as a 7-ply maple deck, but have more pop, stay stiff longer than ordinary boards, and prevent the deck from ever breaking into two pieces because of the LIGAMENT™ in each one.

The Powell-Peralta team gives LIGAMENT™ technology two thumbs up after many months of testing, and on February 15, 2011, Aldrin Garcia set a new High Ollie World Record of 45" using a Powell-Peralta LIGAMENT™ deck.


  • Greater confidence. 
  • More pop for higher ollies. 
  • Stiffer, longer-lasting flex for increased board life.

Deck Concaves:

  • K12. A double kick nose with extra deep concave that adds significant stiffness to a deck. This allows Powell Peralta to reduce a K12 deck’s thickness and weight without losing pop and response. It also features a steep, flat nose and tail. Maximum wheel base—14.50 inches. Non-symmetrical nose to tail.
  • K15. A double kick nose with deeper, smoother concave, longer wheelbase, concave kick on nose and tail and a scoop tail for a more secure foot placement without feeling trapped. A big boy version of the K12 allowing all terrain ripping with the stability of a longer wheelbase. Less wheel bite because the steeper concave goes out to the edge of the board. Maximum wheel base—15.75" Non symmetrical nose to tail.

For a full skateboard assembly, you will need grip tape, trucks, hardware, bearings and wheels. Assembly is free! 

Note: Desired skateboard width can vary based on skate style, body size and individual preference. But in general, 7.5"-7.8" widths work great for younger skaters, street skaters or those needing a board that is easier to maneuver for tricks. The 8"-8.75" width are great for larger skaters, skate filmers, vert/ramp skating or cruising. For more assistance, contact us directly.
