Powell Peralta Caballero Chinese Dragon Ivory 7.5" Complete Skateboard

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.

    About the Cab Chinese Dragon Artwork: 

    After a six year run, it was time to change up Caballero's deck graphic. Just in time for the filming of the Animal Chin video in 1986, a new dragon graphic was created for Cab. Now known as the Cab Chinese Dragon, the artwork was inspired by a Chinese takeout box and finally illustrated by VCJ. The Chinese Dragon came on a new "fish" shape in full size and mini. It was produced as 7-ply maple and also "Bonite" construction. It was discontinued in 1987.

    Originally Released: 1986
