Back in 1982 Dave “Hackman The Gnar” Hackett created the first radical cutaway Rockett Board using a 32X10” Flat 7 ply deck. He rode that deck in Hawaii on a trip to Kaui on the Blue “Jesus Rules” Halfpipe back in the 70’s. He tried to produce these decks commercially but never had a good board company who would do them until 2015, when Jim at Watson Lam got into the game and the Rockett was made under the Deathbox label.
With a little help from T-Mag and H-Street, the Deathbox Hackett Signature Rockett boards are made once again in a limited quantity, handmade at Watson Lam with 100% Hardrock Maple, laminated with the Strongest “THICK BITCH®” wood glue, and hand silkscreened, complete with Wheelwells and Contrasting CorePly®” Construction!
Comments from Mr. Hackett; “I Thank you for not Conforming to the Millions of Drones who Read and Ride what everyone else does because they saw it in a Magazine. You Are an Original. And I Salute you for that! Now Go RIP, TEAR, & SHRED!!”
