Where the Idea Came From:
Alan “Ollie” Gelfand invented the “no hands” vertical frontside air, or “ollie air.” In the late Summer of 1980 the “AGM” (Alan Gelfand Model) was released. Following suit with the Bones Brigade military theme, Alan chose a tank for the subject of his graphic design which was illustrated by V.C. Johnson. Furthermore, the Ollie Tank was one of the first decks to receive the oval dragon top graphic.
In the mid 1960s, George Powell was just another teen in Southern California building skateboards out of two-by-fours in his parents’ garage. He’d ride those things “until they died,” he jokes, and continued skating through college, saving up Blue Chip stamps (a customer loyalty program started in the 1960s) to exchange for new boards when he shattered the others.
Powell Peralta has re-issued decks under the brand, Powell Classic. George Powell and Stacy Peralta have teamed up once again to re-issue some of the original pro models under Powell-Peralta. Current reissues include models from Steve Caballero, Ray “Bones” Rodriguez, Mike McGill, Steve Steadham, and Mike Vallely.
