Mark Wyndham.

"This is Markus. You do not know him now, but you will someday."

How many times has that line been used to introduce somebody in a skateboard video in the years since Hokus Pokus?

Mark got really tech for 1989 in H-Street's Hokus Pokus and kept on rolling with that approach. He turned pro for Planet Earth. Along with his friend Ocean Howell, Mark was at the forefront of helping to evolve technical switch skateboarding in the early 1990s. He gradually disappeared in the later half of the 1990s.

Miki Vuckovich took the photo and Ocean Howell filmed the video sequence.

Does anyone know about the status of Planet Earth brand? Is that stopped?

I believe it is done, but I could be wrong. Planet Earth went to just clothing in the mid 2000s. I do think I recall seeing a more recent ad as just a clothing company, but even that would have been a few years ago. K2 or whoever owned Adio might have sold the name to somebody else.
