I started skateboarding in 1984 and skateboard design was already behind when it came to the real life application of what us kids were doing out in the streets. In 1986 when I started skating for Powell Peralta I drilled the nose of my Lance Mountain board back so that I could actually use the nose of the board for tricks. Stacy Peralta tripped out on what I was doing trick wise and the fact that the boards he was making were too slow to adapt to what we were doing on them. When I put out my first pro model in 1988, the nose was considered big by the standards of the day. I actually wanted an even bigger nose but the manufacturer saw it as too much of a risk in the market place. World Industries was smaller and nimbler and more in tune with what was happening and so with working directly with Steve Rocco and Rodney Mullen we introduced the Barnyard Board in 1989 -- I was going out on a limb design wise by putting my name on that board BUT that board is considered the prototype for the modern day popsicle stick and for changing skateboard shapes for the past 25 years or so. But the popsicle stick is not the end of the line… Skateboard shapes are back! Freedom in skating is back! And in that spirit @streetplantbrnd introduces the new meaner, leaner and #EngineeredForTheStreets Street Axe— Fine tuned at #PsStix by none other than Master Craftsmen @professorschmitt. Don’t select your Axe from a soulless zombified pretender… Street Plant Brand is your real deal #StreetAxe dealer!

SKATE, CREATE, ENJOY

No one exemplifies these words better than @professorschmitt — He skates, he creates and he enjoys! He was never the best skater and he never worried about it… He made his own path in skateboarding and he has always enjoyed his engagement and involvement in skateboarding — On and off of his board. Truly, it was an honor to hand him one of these @streetplantbrnd SKATE, CREATE, ENJOY posters — Made by the @ITINERANTPRINTER Chris Fritton at @printmuseum The International Printing Museum.

Following in a great tradition in skateboarding spurred on by Craig Stecyk @crstecykiii these posters are 14 x 22, and hand set and hand-printed on a Vandercook 15-21 proofing press on some of the very last original Colby Poster Printing Co. backgrounds in existence. They are limited to 100: 50 rainbow roll, 25 fluorescent pink, 20 fluorescent yellow, and 5 fluorescent orange — All hand signed and numbered by @chrisfritton and Mike Vallely.
Posters available here:

The promoter told me that they’d built this obstacle just for me… Some sort of Rainbow Doorway Channel thing… I’m not sure why they'd built it with me in mind but that’s some pressure right there. — It was the middle of my contest run… I popped out onto a quarter pipe and eyed it. I hadn’t really done anything on it yet… No one had really. Koston looked at me and asked me what I was going to do… I told him I was gonna’ “Get Hurt.” I didn’t really mean that but then again I wasn’t afraid to either. I started pushing towards the thing with speed and got fixed on the idea of a Japan 1 Foot To Fakie over the Channel. More like a Japan 1 Foot To Fakie over the Channel to Broken Jaw and stitches in my chin. Oh, you built this obstacle just for me? Thanks. Ha, ha!

Normal Mike Vallely
mikevallely Unearthed.

In 1985 I joined and performed in the New Jersey Hardcore Band: Resistance. I played one fabled show with the band on September 15, 1985 at the Jazz Loft in New Brunswick, NJ. The show was headlined by 7 Seconds — Aggression also played but were not featured on the flyer — A flyer that I helped design… That is all my handwriting. Our local heroes, Pleased Youth, also played that night. I however was grounded that night and it was also a Sunday night, meaning I had school the next day — So, I had to sneak out of my house in Edison and run two towns over to New Brunswick to play the show and then I had to run back to Edison to sneak back into my house, not able to watch the rest of the show. Resistance soon dissolved after that show BUT it was an epic time and the music was good. I’m glad to have reconnected recently with my old Resistance bandmates and we are working on recording some of our original material as well as some new songs for a future release.

Thanks to @mitchgtz for digging this flyer up. Too cool!

  •   effin_mike Good story. RESISTING the wrath of the parental units and the oppression of the institution for the sake of an opportunity. The opportunity for RESISTANCE to play with 7seconds (and assorted artists), you are commended. 🏻 4d

For 31 years they’ve been telling me… That’s not “skateboarding". They’re right… It’s MY skateboarding.
