Felix Arguelles & Brian Howard.

Double shot.

I went with a through the years approach to Planet Earth week instead of using the ads I really liked the design of from 1995. I'm planning on doing another week of those ads later on in the year. Anyway, PE was big on video grab sequences that featured two team riders in 1993. It didn't always looks great. This one was shot on film so it turned out much better.

Felix has been around forever. He was sponsored by World Industries before Planet Earth. He would go on to ride for Rhythm, as he fit the company's fresh image for sure. In addition to street, Felix could bust out on a vert ramp as well. Brian was pro for G & S prior to riding for Planet Earth.

I love that its of an age they still felt they had to put "handrail boardslide".

Rhythm was Felix's and Jose Gomez's brand done though Planet Earth, when Earth started to get bigger around the mid 94ish or whatever Chris miller took on more of a business man role and Felix became the skate guy, and i guess when the company got really big they just gave him his own label.
