Powell Peralta Cab Dragon One Off Assembly, 7.75 x 31.75
After placing 3rd overall in the Gold Cup Series and voted `Rookie of the Year` In 1980, Steve Caballero had proven he was ready for a pro signature model of his own. He was initially offered a simple propeller/skull nose-art graphic but rejected it. Steve submitted some sketches of his own for consideration, one of which was a crouching dragon, and that's the direction they pursued. Artist VCJ reworked the design a couple times before laying down the final ink. The deck was first released in December 1980 and the graphic was so well received it wasn`t replaced until 1986.
