Ray Underhill #3.

Ray is another fine skateboarder who left this mortal coil far too soon. He also invented the classic Experimental graphic that you would see Powell Peralta pros riding in the videos.

The old Powell stuff always makes me think of Christmas time, probably because there was always a new Bones Brigade video that came out just in time for the holiday.

The pictures are by Grant Brittain.

Ray had a great style and from what I've heard was an amazing individual. R.I.P.
I could stare at those photos all day long, especially the f/s stalefish invert at McGill's. The Experimental deck w/ T-Bones wheels, the Rector pads w/ knee gaskets, Rip Grip, Airwalk Prototype shoes... damn, product was so cool back then.
