Chris Miller started Planet Earth at about the same time the New Deal started. He left Schmitt Stix and partnered with Tony Magnusson at H - Street. The team was fairly small at first - Miller, Brian Lotti, Buster Halterman, Mark Roach and Eric Jueden. Things grew quickly and more riders were added. Barker Barrett, Felix Arguelles, Matt Schnurr, Brian Howard and Markus Wyndham were some of the many names who rode for the company.
Later in the 1990s, Rhythm Skateboards was added as a second brand. Adio Footwear was also started. Eventually K2 acquired the whole package and things were consolidated. Rhythm was dropped and Planet Earth was reduced to just being a clothing company before shutting down completely a few years ago.
