Old timer skater, remembering good times— alex ramirez
I got out of skating for a long time. When I was in younger I skated everyday. My son recently started skating. I found myself on his board teaching him to ride. My wife later asked me what I wanted for Valentine's day. I told her that I would really like a skateboard. She purchesed me an old school Mike Valley Elephant Head. I was stoked when she gave it to me. I now find myself daydreaming of surfing the streets every day. I love my board and the memories of my youth that were engrossed in Powell Peralta and the Bones Brigade. Thank you for the memories and the freedom I feel when I ride.— Chris Walcott
These guys ARE Skateboarding! Lords of Dogtown has been our inspiration, my husband and two sons ride, regular and our motorized sk8drive attachments, but without guys like these, hey.— stephanie “steph” gross, sk8drive
RE-ISSUE SOME SWEATPANTS!— Nick
I believe you guys should give Frankie Hill another chance for Powell-Peralta .The money you guys had to spend for his accident will be made back in reissuing his board. People don't want his other companies boards. They want Powell board. Just my thought.— leonard majdecki
Hello Powel-Peralta, I have been skating for ten almost eleven years and prefer the older skating style than the current. I love the fact that you produce classic skateboards and skate items still for young shredders like myself to skate! My question is, "when are you going to re-issue the Tony Hawk Chicken Skull deck?" I used to have a late 1987 blue one, but I skated the sucker to death! I can't really afford to buy a new one off eBay since there so expensive.. almost $1000!! YIKES! Anyway thanks, for reading this message and keep shredding!— Tyler “Skorpe” Sharp
SEMPRE GOSTEI DA POWELL PERALTA DESDE OS MEUS 14 ANOS DE IDADE, HOJE TEM 34 ANOS.
UM ABRAÇO E FIQUEM COM DEUS— RICARDO “GUEDES” PAULO, ELETROMECÂNICA BALAN LTDA
Saw Lance at a home depot, I knew it was him being a long time Peralta Team Disciple. Asked for his autograph and shared with him what the Brigade and Powell meant to me and still means to me and my son who also skate. He was Totally cool, calm, not conceited, unlike the big head pro jerks that act like their the **it! I was so stocked that as I walked away I though.."No one is gonna believe this", then I thought, DUH!! phones have cameras now, why didnt I take a picture...so I ran out to the parking lot to look for Lance and saw him headed toward his truck and said, I'm sorry but can I take a picture with you, and with that calm attitude that I spoke of earlier, took the shot and went home. I have the picture in my living room for all to see. Thank you LANCE, AND THANK YOU POWELL PERALTA— fausto rivera, nahum
galley powell am Brazilian and I've always liked the story and everything about dog town and I think the wheels on the slides so incredible bombers like the grips are perfect.— valter “cabelera”
Man I go way back wit the bones son! I'm future primitive and still searching for animal chin! My boards- Tommy Guerrero, Lance Mountain,and a Hawk. We talking a brother in the late 80's early 90's in Hattiesburg,MS skating. Now I live New Orleans with 2 boys of my own, a 12y.o. and a 6y.o. they skate now. Imagine that.Skateboarding is not a crime.— BiG Face, Tech Street Records

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!!
