Hey, folks.— seth hargis, n/a
Lord knows if this will reach Stacy. I hope it will. I've been a fan for some time of the dog town and z-boyz docu. The movie was ok, but the realness of his documentary carried so much more weight, loved the music!! More to the point, I just now finished watching his Crips and Bloods docu. I'd just like to say well done! I live in Dayton, OH. A small city by comparison to say the least, but given it's economic hardships of late, has not helped our outlook on life one bit. In the Dayton metro area with the closing of the GM plant, unemployment jumped by at least 10,000 from that closure alone. Hell, we even had some folks do a docu. about us from HBO about the plant closing. Yet, I ramble. Stacy, or who ever the hell reads these things, I just want to say that your documentaries give me a small flicker of hope that given our problems here in Dayton, that we too, can overcome. Because if not, the gang issue we have here will only get worse! Not to mention Police cuts and Fire/EMS cuts...ugly stuff. We face a very uncertain time in the future and I hope that with the help of those like you that can bring these things to light for all to see that some headway can be made!! Well, guess I'll hope off the soap box for now. Much Love and please keep up the good work, Stacy!!
I've owned three of your boards,the Tony Hawk "Chicken Skull",Caballero "Dragon" and Rodney Mullen's "Chess Deck".The Rodney Mullen "Chess Deck" was the one for me!.Please oh,please,oh please bring it back!
Thanx for your time,Bullfrog....Brrrrribit!!!— Jeremiah “Bullfrog”
Just came across your website and was surprised to learn Powell Peralta is hq'd in Santa Barbara.
I still have my skull & crossbones deck with bones wheels (circa 1984) that I purchased as a young teen in Dallas, TX. It's a bit tattered. I'll be in Santa Barbara over the week of Thanksgiving. Not sure how many decks remain from the 80's--that aren't broke. If there is any interest, I'm happy to bring mine by the shop while I'm in town.— Timothy Lavender
Como dijo Tony Alva una vez "When God decided to create skateboarding he said: 'Let there be Jay Adams" ♠— Mauro “Tony Montana” Deo, Gangbanger
My parents got me my first "real" skateboard when I was 5yrs old in 1986. It was the Powell Peralta Ripper(blue). They started taking me to the Bones Brigades Demos that came through the Baltimore area and I even skated in one at the age of 7 (I guess it was an open contest for the locals during the event). I grew up in the same suburb as Bucky Lasek and skateboarding was a pretty big thing. I continued skating for 11 years until I got my car and finished up highschool. Fast forward a few years and I started skating again at the age of 21yrs old and ended up breaking my ankle. I'm now 29yrs old and have a 1yr old son I plan to introduce to skateboarding and see if it's his thing. I plan on starting again myself. Looking at the old powell peralta videos on youtube bring back the awesome memories of my younger days. Can't wait to see the new bones brigade video!— Mike “Mike” Calcagno
i am 15, when I was 4 I had a Powell-Peralta board, and love Powell-Peralta ever since, recently bought a Lance Mountain family board.— Jackson “Stacy” Stelzer
First let me start by saying thanks for bringing back the re-issue stuff. I'm 32 now and can remember back in the 80's getting my first powell peralta board, Tony Hawk, and then got a Mike Mcgill. I wish I still had them, but I think my mom sold them in a yard sale a long time ago.I have a cousin that's 4 years older than me, and he's the one who got me in to skateboarding, but anyway, I was playing basketball a few months ago with some guys and one of them was in my cousins class and we started talking about the past and how things were back then. Somehow we started talking about the skateboarding days, and a other guy their was saying how skateboarding is dumb and how it's not a sport. I just want to say I love sports period weather it's football, golf, basketball, etc, etc. I would like to say to him and anybody else who thinks skating is not a sport that anybody can pick up a basketball and throw it through a hoop, anybody can pick up a bat and hit a ball, but not everybody can drop in on a half-pipe. But anyway back to what I was saying, I had never really even gave skateboarding a second thought untill that day. So I started thinking about it, like about the skate shop we would go to called skate and surf connection it had a half-pipe in the middle of the parking lot. It was cool store but what got me was they sold surfboards also witch made no sense b/c their is no where in Arkansas to go surfing. But anyway I just want to say thanks for all the memories you guys gave me. POWELL PERALTA#1 BONES BRAGADE— Stony
I agree with Floyd that the Brite Lite was my favorite board for bowls and pools back in the day. I went through a lot of other boards, mostly bigger and the feel of that Brite Lite was magic.— Mark “skidmark”
Re-issue the Brite Lite, PLEASE! In the meantime, I just picked up a Future Primitive and am loving it. Salutes to Stacy for going big on surf and skate docs.
