Bones Brigade: An Autobiography

In 1978, a mechanical engineer who had developed new skateboard products teamed up with one of the most popular skaters of the era. George Powell and Stacy Peralta created Powell Peralta and immediately began retooling how skateboard products were made and marketed. Stacy recruited the skaters and handled marketing along with his longtime creative cohort Craig Stecyk III. Unmotivated by fame they completely dedicated their lives to a disrespected art form. By 1984, Tony Hawk, Rodney Mullen, Steve Caballero, Lance Mountain, Tommy Guerrero and Mike McGill compiled the most competitively successful skateboard team in history. They dominated contests, made hundreds of thousands of dollars, created the modern skateboard video, reinvented endemic advertising, pushed skate progression into a new era and set the stage for a totally new form of skating called street style. Bones Brigade: An Autobiography is their story.
