Peter Smolik.

Old Dirty Smolik.

The man who gave us pants that you could velcro to your sneakers and then partied away his Osiris money without regret.

Peter rode for Voice before getting picked to be the third pro at Shorty's alongside Chad Muska and Steve Olson. He had a good run at the end of the 1990s and into the 2000s until Shorty's fell off. He subsequently started SK8MAFIA and that seems to be doing well, with Wes Kremer as everybody's favorite new pro.

I just like that photo of him in front of the bar.

Geoff Kula shot the sequence.

Where is Peter now? I haven't seen him at any of the SK8MAFIA premiers, that is the pictures on the websites that post the premier photos.
