Ali "Banana" Flip Skateboard Deck Reissue

Updated: Sep 11, 2023

During a team visit to Tom Penny's chateau in the south of France, Ali was given the nickname, Ali "Banana" by Belinda (Tom's mother). This led to a fun idea for a banana graphic wearing a leather jacket, expertly drawn up by Flips' artist Daniel Dunphy.

Available again for a limited time with hand-screen-printed Ali "Banana" artwork on our 8.1" classic shape. The graphics are printed using the original old films and colour separations. 7-ply Canadian hard Rock Maple.

31.6” x 8.1” with 14.25” WB

Original hand cut Rubys.


3 colour top print !

Full yellow flood, red, yellow then light brown pass.

White and 2 shades of cream to create the banana!

Metalic zipper, with a dark grey and a translucent black, ready for the solid black.

Hand-screened decks are intentionally left with sloppy ink edges because that’s how the originals were done. Scraping with blades cleans up the edges but then the graphics look more similar to heat transfers which they are certainly not. The occasional dragged edge within the graphic art print is normal too. These are 100% screen printed by hand the old way.
