Channel One was started by former Vision pro Marty "Jinx" Jimenez. I simply liked their old ads and board graphics. Channel One was in cahoots with Acme and subscribed to the idea of not having pro models. At first this wasn't that big of a deal since they didn't have any pro riders. Most of the early team consisted of Huntington Beach locals. Later on in the 1990s, Chet Thomas, Chris Senn and a young Anthony Van Engelen would ride for the team.
