Mike Vallely has resigned and is no longer riding for Powell-Peralta. Mike has asked us not to mention what his future plans entail. We thank Mike for all his contributions with Powell-Peralta and wish him the best in the future.
Disappointing but I saw it coming and I know Mike is a restless soul who needs to stand strong and alone so I too wish him the best, but I was also very excited like many others to imagine a new bones brigade with original members
mikes changed his sponsors (boards, shoes, trucks...) more than any skateborder in the industry...wtf??? who would even take him at this point knowing he will jump ship in 3 months?
Best of luck to Mike Vallely.Maybe back to Label,Element or maybe his own company.?Id love to see his own brand started and succeed.Hes tried so hard for so long at owning a brand.
ever since he and the label parted ways i have been skeptical, one of my fav skaters but damn, whos he gunna ride for, andy macs company? damn.....
this time he should've stayed in Powell, but that's not Vallely....for better or worse
that is bull man!
George and VCJ still pushing the bug graphic? Mall cop II?
It's a shame; Mike V's Heart always seemed to be in the right place. Not to sure about his Head. Still one of my Faves of all time.
"Viva La Powell-Peralta!"
sorry to say and see such a legend be a joke on himself. no respect, not even progressing. jumping sponsors every two three months, i guess hes looking to cash in, but it is not working.
he stopped progression years ago, still skates like early 90s, sorry to say.
Mike, please stop making a clown out of yourself.
i think im gonna throw up
Guy Bum's me Out! Put Frankie Hill Back ON.
pro for airwalk, again i think, torx trucks or something else no one has heard of before? this is no surprise folks. he`s going for the retirement plan right along side andy mac`s program at your favorite walmart or whatever. completely. don`t be mistaken fans of his. this shit is not about skateboarding.
How many times is this guy going to jump ship and start a company? He's tried this like 5 times....after what he did to 1031, who would want him?
I did see this link with more info on it..
obvious Jeff Phillips influence on Mike V and his choice of new deck graphics... I wish him the best on his new company/venture.
George was right... There are too many companies already. Why another One? He wants to be a skater, a company owner, and a musician. How many rock bands has he started, how many brands has he skated for?
After reading this crap, I am more pro-George Powell and the gang then ever.
Waaaaaaah they made me run through a graveyard......waaaaaaah.
Waaaaaaaah I beat up my co-worker and made my sponsors threaten to pull advertising from the magazine, then I needed counselling from Ian from Fugazi on my anger issues....waaaaaaaaah
Waaaaaaaah I'm not as relevant waaaah.
Yes Mike has been an inovative skateboarder a long time. However the secret to longevity in any industry is patience and focus on the big picture. With the release of the Bones Brigade video his residuals and appearance moneys would have been huge. It is unfortunate Mike is so independent he will miss out on the very thing which made the Bones team special.
Nobody cares. Guy's a kook. He embarrasses skateboarding with his dumb antics. He should start a company called Wrestlehockeysponsorhopper.
huge disappointment. mike is my favorite skater and i always thought he belonged on powell-peralta. you guys have the best products, & the best graphics.
I read Mikes Blog and you all should read about why he left Powell. Powell Peralta has always been part of my life as a youth and now 35 with a son that skates. They have business practices that are suspect, but the memory of the past, the films the original crew is what I hold dear noe. The business side sucks, let the spirit of of what Powell Peralta was and skateboarding live on.
Ya coulda been a legend but ya decided to be a footnote way to piss on good fortune
mike valley is one of my favorite skaters he should have stayd with powell-peralta but he decided to go i hope that he made the correct decision.
