Wade Speyer #11.
Flyin' the flannel.
I couldn't find this one when I was doing Powell week a little bit ago and really wanted to post it.
Wade had been riding for Dogtown until they went under. He looked around at a couple of companies before deciding on Powell Peralta. He had a Transworld Pro Spotlight where he was riding World Industries and blank boards at the time prior to picking Powell. If that had happened today there would be so much internet speculation on who he was riding for. The kids and their mobile devices. I'm sure we talked about it a bunch back then, but you know, it was a different era.
