Powell Peralta skateboards – completes, decks, wheels and more

Sunday, December 20th, 2020

Given that we’ve just had a massive pre-Christmas drop of Powell Peralta skateboards product – it seemed appropriate to give you a little history lesson.
For those of you who already know the Powell Peralta skateboards back story, scroll down and remind yourself of a few classics instead.
For anyone out there thinking of buying your first complete skateboard for Christmas, you would be well advised to check out our huge Powell Peralta range too. Their reputation for producing pro level entry completes is unquestionable, and there are no better bearings or skateboard wheels on the market than Powell Peralta’s own Bones brand.

Powell Peralta skateboards

Founded by George Powell and Stacy Peralta in Santa Barbara, California, 1978, Powell Peralta skateboards was one of the ‘big three’ skateboard brands that dominated the industry from the late 70’s and throughout the 1980s.
The combination of aerospace engineer George Powell’s flair for innovation and 70’s pro skater and member of the original Zephyr Competition Team (aka the Z-Boys) Stacy Peralta‘s eye for talent and early grasp of the central importance of the skate video, made Powell Peralta the most globally well known brand throughout the 1980s.

Peralta put together the Powell skate team under the Bones Brigade moniker and was the talent scout responsible for bringing skaters such as Tony Hawk, Rodney Mullen, Lance Mountain, Mike Vallely, Guy Mariano, Tommy Guerreo, Frankie Hill and inventor of the ollie Alan ‘Ollie’ Gelfand, (amongst many others) to both the Powell Peralta team and the attention of the global skateboard community.

Powell Peralta skateboards

Stacey Peralta pioneered the skate video as we know it today producing such classics as The Bones Brigade Video Show (1984) Future Primitive (1985) The Search for Animal Chin (1987) Public Domain (1988), Ban This (1989), Propaganda (1990) and Celebraty Tropical Fish (1991). With each of these now revered releases, Peralta introduced new approaches to skating and new skaters who would go on to influence the direction of skate culture long into the future.

In the contest oriented skateboard scene of the 1980’s, the Powell-Peralta team and the brand itself was omnipresent. However, the combined effects of the global slump in skateboard sales in the early 90’s, the rise of street skating and the concerted efforts of upstart brands such as those from Steve Rocco’s World Industries umbrella saw Powell Peralta fall from its position of dominance.
By 1991, many of the Bones Brigade had left to start up their own brands, with Stacey Peralta parting ways to embark on a Hollywood directorial career, leading to the formation of the Powell Corporation.

Powell Peralta skateboards

Stacy Peralta and George Powell rekindled their business relationship in 2010 and have since been extremely successful once more, particularly through the re-release of many of their classic legacy skateboards.

In 2012, Peralta released the Bones Brigade Documentary, chronicling the highs and lows of Powell Peralta skateboards and the influence of the brand and its riders on global skate culture.
If you missed it, you can find the full documentary below. Trigger warning: contains numerous rich 50-year-olds crying for no apparent reason.


Buying your first complete skateboard for Christmas?

Friday, November 20th, 2020

Buying your first complete skateboard for Christmas?
The 2020 skateboard boom shows no sign of slowing down so we though this would be timely.
Across the world, participation numbers have reached heights not seen since the THPS boom.
Not only are we up in sheer numbers, but the Covid boom is obliterating the gender/age gap finally.
I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you this – head to any skatepark and you’ll see it for yourselves.
Female skaters, tiny kid skaters, middle-aged shredders returning to the fold and everything in between – skateboarding is booming right now.
You can read more about this Covid-era phenomenon here: the unlikely boom of skatebarding during a pandemic.
With the above in mind, and aware of the fact that many of you will be buying your first complete skateboard for Christmas, it seemed a good time to post a little info.

buying your first complete skateboard for Christmas

You have masses of options as regards buying your first complete skateboard. We’re stocked to the gills so how you go about it is entirely up to you.
The two main routes that most beginners take are a) buying a preassembled complete skateboard, or b) buying the components separately and having us assemble it.
See below for a handy guide on the major things to consider.

Deck size
You need to select a deck that suits your height, weight and shoe size. If you pick something too big or too small it will make it difficult for you to control when you start learning.
We can advise you on this but it is important to consider deck width (usually between 7.5 and 8.5 inches) and length (usually between 28 and 33 inches) when choosing your first skateboard.
New skaters with smaller feet or children should opt for a narrower board (around 7.5 wide) and slightly shorter board.
If you’re looking at buying your first complete skateboard for a smaller child – try our child range here, or click below to see our complete stock.

Other things to take it account when it comes to your deck.
Wheelbase: This is the distance between the two trucks. Most modern decks have a wheelbase of between 13 and 15 inches – fine for the average teenage/adult skater.
For children or smaller people, look out for slightly smaller wheelbase.
As with width/length, this will make it easier to control.
Concave: This relates to the curvature of the board. There is no right or wrong with this and all manufacturers will offer different concaves.
Some people prefer a flatter concave whereas others prefer a deeper one for board feel. Feel free to call us and ask for advice.

buying your first complete skateboard for Christmas

Trucks: these are crucially important when buying your first complete skateboard. There are various things to consider but the main two issues are – hanger/axle width and truck height.
The rule of thumb is, the wider your deck, the wider your trucks need to be.
Truck width is usually calculated on the length from axle to axle, (the bit that sticks out beyond the hanger that your wheels fix onto).
Truck height varies from one brand to the other – a good rule of thumb here is – the larger your wheels, the higher the trucks you will need.
As always – don’t hesitate to contact us for advice on truck selection.

Skateboard wheels and bearings
Selecting the correct wheels and bearings will have a huge influence on your experience of learning so here are a few crucial tips.
The main variables with skateboard wheels are size (measured by wheel diameter) and hardness (measured by durometer reading – usually represented by a number follwed by ‘A’).
Wheel size runs from around 50mm to 70mm. The average skater (street and park) will usually opt for something in the 50-60mm range and pick a relatively hard wheel with something along the lines of a 95a to 101a duromteter reading). Smaller sized wheels reduce weight and harder wheels slide more easily on concrete and wood surfaces. For people more interested in cruising around than in doing tricks – larger and softer wheels (around 80a durometer) may be a better choice.

buying your first complete skateboard for Christmas

Each complete skateboard requires a set of 8 skate bearings (that’s 2 in each wheel).
Bearings are all a standard size but performance and price varies hugely. Basic bearings sell for between £5 – £25 and will last, provided you care for them and keep them away from water.
If you want to treat yourself to a set of really high-end bearings offering heightened performance and durability then the recognised industry standard of excellence is the Bones brand and their Bones Swiss and Bones Ceramic bearings. Looked after properly, a set of high-end Bones will last you for years and years.
As always – feel free to call us for advice on wheels and bearings before buying your first complete skateboard for Christmas.

Cruisers and longboards: For those of you more interested in skateboarding as a form of transportation and for the pure joy of rolling, we offer a full range of cruisers and longboards. Generally these will come as preassembled completes with softer wheels for comfort and speed with a shape more akin to a miniature surfboard.

DC Shoes Kalis OG

Friday, April 5th, 2019

 

DC Shoes Kalis OG

 

You know your a 90’s skater when you still get the chills at the mention of Josh Kalis. The technique, style and street grace from the OG Love Park ruler has been rocking the DC Shoes brand since day dot pretty much.

 

If your asking why the blog piece on Kalis and Dc Shoes… basically we’ve got a very special re-release due in store very soon. As yet even DC Shoes UK can’t tell us the release date so for now these sure to be highly sort after skate shoes will sit under a watchful protection in our skate store stock room. Keep a look out via our social media platforms for any shoe release updates.

 

So not that we need an excuse but there’s nothing like avoiding the real work piling up and reminiscing on one of our all time faves here at the Black Sheep Store, Sir Style Guru Josh Kalis!

 

This excuse of work basically involves “researching” all our fondest parts from Kalis and delving into the photo archive with long time photographer friend Blabac. These two are like peas in a pod when it comes to sponsored skateboarder and professional photographers. There joint work over the years has created timeless master pieces that no doubt adorn walls World Wide.

 

josh-kalis-love-park-dc-shoes

 

 

josh-kalis-mike-blabac-dc-skateboarding

 

 

A little brief history with Kalis follows and yet more reasons he’s a skaters “skater” favourite. Born and raised in Michigan and known for his integration into many a skate scene World Wide. From stints (and probably the most fondly remembered) in Philadelphia,  Chicago, Dallas and San Francisco plus gracing our European skate world with an much welcomed over stay residency in Barcelona. All this travel whilst staying true with his first love of his family and now settled down in the sunshine capital of Carlsbad, California, US. Josh continues to kill it on his skateboard, being one of the “elders|” of the 90’s street skating movement he show’s no sign of letting up. Good to see DC Skateboarding recognise this lifetime achievement and still honour Kalis with his own range of dope footwear including the all new DC Shoes Kalis S

 

Watch the video below for said recent release with Kalis x Blabac “Yours For The Taking”

 

 

 

 

So with such heritage with Dc Shoes and Josh Kalis it comes as no surprise to see a reprisal of the Kalis OG silhouette. The hype around this shoe from the original release back in 2000 was crazy, every other skater you’d see was rocking the OG Kalis with as many extra padded tongues as humanly possible. The baggy vibe of the early 2000’s could certainly be honoured to Kalis himself along with the tech street movement of the time.

 

So with all this said we’re stoked to announce to be one of the chosen few stockist in the UK to be offering up the DC Shoes Kalis OG. As mentioned above these are currently under lock and key in store but we’ve managed to sneak a few pictures and a coming soon listing for you to drool over.

Vans x Anti Hero Skateboards Collaboration Release

 

 

vans-anti-hero-shoes-release

 

Like we need any excuse to talk about Vans x Anti Hero! To say we’re stoked on this collaboration release is an understatement. Get the low down on this full release then scan your cursor downwards and hit play. Like we say, any excuse for some Anti Hero appreciation with a shed load of classic footage.

 

This collaboration pack includes the Vans TNT Advanced Prototype, Vans Slip On Pro, Old Skool Pro and the ever illusive Vans Sk8 Mid Pro’s. The full collaboration capsule is due in any-day now. Keep an eye on our Black Sheep Store Instagram for up to minute updates.

Take note of the Vans Pro range and the differences with make up and insoles. The TNT Advanced Prototype and Grosso Sk8-Mid Pro’s both utilising Vans UltraCush Lite 3D footbed insoles (*editors note- these are ridicuously comfy with real arch support in a vulcanised shoe.) The John Cardiel Old Skool Pro and Chris Pfhanner Slip On Pro are both equipped with Duracap (dual layer reinforcement under toe piece suede) reinforced rubber underlays for durability plus the ever popular UltraCush HD sockliners for cushioning and impact protection.

 

All the Vans x Anti Hero Footwear range comes complete with the Todd Francis artwork insoles along with woven embroidered Anti Hero tab label. Seriously can’t choose between the styles of this collaboration pack but the welcome return of the Vans Sk8 Mid from Jeff Grosso is sure to be a straight up classic go to skate shoe.

 

vans-antihero-skate-shoes

 

Also you’ll be able to purchase the banging apparel pack to coincide with this Vans x Anti Hero release.

 

The Vans x Antihero apparel collection comes correct as you’d expect. Clean simple graphics on short and long sleeve tees, a fleece pullover hooded sweatshirt and a trucker hat. Make sure you check the detailing on the staple work-wear inspired yarn dye shadow plaid flannel shirt. Regular straight fit with Todd Francis artwork pigeon embroidery to lower hem plus custom label package details.

 

vans-anti-hero-skateboards

 

 

Now remind yourselves why Anti Hero Skateboards is one of the most well respected brands out there. Good reason why skate footwear rulers Vans continue to seek out these collaborations with only the best. “All Hail” Vans x Anti Hero.

 

 

The classic Antihero “Fucktards” video. Originally release back in 1997.

 

 

 

 

The one when Cardiel goes nuts! Or is that even nuttier than before. John Cardiel worship is highly encouraged!

 

 

 

 

This was the one you just couldn’t find on video. Maybe your mate had a copy of a copy held together with celloptape and the prongs snapped out so you couldn’t record over it. Timeless skateboarding Antihero “Two Songs” from the year 2002.

 

 

 

 

Tony Trujillo aka TNT = Vans x Anti Hero lifer!

 

 

 

 

Big poppa Chris Pfanner for the Vans “Propeller” video.

 

 

 

 

Okay so it’s not classic Grosso footage from the late 80’s but his ‘Love letters to Skateboarding’ episodes are just to entertaining to not mention.

Adidas Skateboarding Tyshawn Jones

Thursday, March 7th, 2019

 

 

adidas-skateboarding-tyshaen-jones-thrasher-soty

 

Adidas Skateboarding Tyshawn Jones

 

 

Yes indeed, the three stripe hype is the real deal for this guy Tyshawn Jones. Adidas Skateboarding brought this kid through from the ground up (along with the legendary filmer William Strobeck.) So from humble beginnings Tyshawn is the new breed and here at Black Sheep we’re 110% backing the pure style of this young man’s skateboarding.

 

So, Tyshawn background is the true underdog coming goods. Hailing from the rough East Coast and daily slaying New York spots this guy is as raw power as it come. I’ve always felt he’s that kid to come through with a NBA style, pure leg pop athleticism but with complete smoothness and grace. Yes far reach I know but you don’t get many (if at all) straight nollie flipping over trash cans! That’s like the pop Jordan needed to slam dunk from the line right there.

 

 

2018 seemed to be Tyshawn’s year with no signs of letting up for 2019. Rumours adrift that Adidas Skateboarding might be giving him his own shoe… only time will tell but for now his FA Entertainment boards must be flying along with signature trucks and wheels for Thunder and Spitfire for the Deluxe camp.

 

Early on last year you could follow Tyshawn Jones Instagram and get a feel for his dedication. Snippets on his story showed him out at all hours with Supreme master creative William Strobeck. Even after this incl-in nobody expected the two song straight up raw power of his ‘Blessed’ part. Up till this point he seemed the under dog for Thrasher Magazine’s highly coveted Skater Of The Year title but once Supreme dropped there latest video you just couldn’t deny Tyshawn his rightful crown.

 

 

thrasher-magazine-tyshawn-jones-cover-2018

 

 

By all accounts he’s not slowing up neither with yet nothing to prove he want’s to go at it again for 2019. Fingers crossed we get a blessed Jason Dill inspired FA Entertainment full part! That would be very nice to run alongside his endless social media output. Remember kids style matters and by all accounts he’s a good guy with his head firmly screwed on his shoulders. In the down time from smashing out ridiculous footage Tsyhawn has been busy at the design hub for adidas Skateboarding, working closely with the legendary Scott Johnston (respected older Pro for the younger folk reading) they’ve been putting ideas to paper for a small signature apparel collection due later this year.

 

So by now your thinking to yourself what’s the reasoning for this long winded blog post about Tyshawn and hints at what he’s up to for adidas skateboarding… Well you can’t beat a ramble social media posting as an excuse to post a whole host of one of favorites videos and photos. Also look for the link for interviews and more all to help give you more of an in-depth look into Tyshawn’s World.

 

 

Kicking it all off with joint section with adidas and Supreme team mate Sir Mark Gonzales (insert worship emoji.)

 

 

 

And not forgetting that opening backside flip from his adidas skateboarding ‘Away Days’ part!

 

 

 

Forgot to mention Tyshawn and his tight crew have the highly sort after Hardies Hardware brand. Oh and of course they all absolutely kill it! Below for evidence.

 

 

 

 

In the midst of writing this blog piece Thrasher Magazine seen fit to release the April 2019 issue. Guess who’s gracing the coveted cover spot again! Yeah Tyshawn, ‘SOTY’ status ringing true! Pick up your copy here Thrasher Magazine Tyshawn Jones Cover April 2019

 

 

tyshawn-thrasher-skater-of-the-year

 

 

The yearly chosen Skater Of The Year also get’s to take his/her (when will we see a woman Skater Of The Year!) nearest and dearest on a trip. This is basically the celebration week long party and skate mission with said chosen crew. Let it be known Tyshawn and his guys did not just slack on there holidays for this one. Some seriously powerful vacation shredding of the highest order.

 

 

 

 

If you’ve made it this far into our Tyshawn Jones appreciation blog piece then you may be hungry for more. You won’t go far wrong following this link to Jenkem Mag “Hustle To The Top” interview and get the low down on adidas skateboarding, Supreme and Fucking Awesome direct from the proverbial horses mouth. Good work Tyshawn, keep on keeping on and here at Black Sheep we’ll admirably be following your next moves. All killer no filler Tyshawn Jones!
