2019 Skateboarding Hall of Fame inductee Tom "Wally" Inouye's original Caster branded stinger shaped deck was first released back in November of 1978. From his many skate sessions on this original deck in backyard pools, as a local at the Del Mar Skate Ranch, and travels beyond, Wally's power and style matched with continual media coverage rightfully earned him a spot within skateboarding royalty forever.
This commemorative deck comes complete with two pieces of unattached blue Jessup griptape with a Caster inspired Lifeblood logo precisely laser cut by our creative friends at Maple XO.
Specifications: Manufactured by PS Stix, Inc. with 7-ply maple construction with wheel wells and finished with 70s era sharp edges. Fully dipped in glossy white paint. Navy blue and yellow graphics via heat transfer application. Top graphic screen printed in navy blue ink. Limited numbered editions of 50 and personally signed by Wally with a black Sharpie on both the top and bottom of the deck.
Measurements: 31.125" long by 10.25" wide, 2.75" nose and 5.75" tail with a 17.25" wheelbase.
Enjoy this classic skateboard until the wheels fall off and/or hang it on your wall as a tribute piece to one of the most powerful and stylish skateboarding pioneers who's still out there on the hunt for skate spots, riding backyard pools and skateparks over four decades later with soul and passion in his heart.
