Mike Vallely #4.
It's time to kick it back to the end of the 1980s for the next month.
Mike was the kid from New Jersey who got sponsored by Powell Peralta for doing street plants in a parking lot. He turned pro and was given one of the cooler looking debut board graphics ever. He teleported all around the east coast in his part in Public Domain, long before Clark Hassler tapped into the magic of time portals. After Powell, Mike switched to World Industries and then the New Deal. During the time frame of 1988 to 1992, he put out a few of the best street skating parts with his performances in Rubbish Heap, Speed Freaks, and 1281. These days Mike is running Elephant Brand Skateboards. The team includes Jason Adams, Neal Hendrix, Kyle Berard, Jake Wooten, and Jade Ryan.
