At one time Powell Peralta was the world’s most successful skateboard company. They had the dream team, some of the best quality boards and wheels. This video part (Public Domain, 1988) pretty much made me take 2 years of my life and dedicate it to learning as much as I could 6+ hours every single day. It’s hard to even think about the effect it had on me. I’ll forever be in debt to this group of people for inspiring me like that.
Powell Peralta has recently put up a web site with a huge graphical timeline of the imagery the created in ads, photos, video and countless logos. The slice pictured above covers from mid 1986 til about 1989.
