Mike Vallely explains why he is back with Powell-Peralta

I Skate, Therefore I Am -Home- Yes! isTia skateboard blog talks about skateboarders, skaters, vert, ramp, skateparks, pool, backyard pools, kidney pool, pink motel, supreme skateboard, copying, skateboarding photography, skate rock, concrete disciples, daily skate news, Vans, Venice skatepark, skate spots  and skateboard news. There are plenty of other skate websites that publish skateboard news faster than me, and better than me (Transworld, The Berrics, Thrasher, Slap magazine, skatedaily, crailtap, juice magazine, skate and annoy,…), so I won’t just give the skate news, I’ll also tell you what I think about it even if I’m wrong. Then you can conform and think like me too and impress your friends with your profound knowledge of the skateboarding industry. LOL
Yeah I know it’s already old news that Mike Vallely is going back to Powell-Peralta skateboards. Or is a 4-day period really old news if you consider that Vallely-Powell-Peralta got together 25 years ago?

The news went viral almost immediately after Mike Vallely posted on Powell’s web site the following announcement: “Powell-Peralta and the Bones Brigade has always been my ideal. Since I left the team in 1989, I’ve been chasing after that ideal, or at least trying to make good on it. With Stacy Peralta back with George Powell, I could not refuse the opportunity to drop everything I was doing and join forces with two people I have great respect and admiration for, and for a cause I truly believe in. I feel I can finally now make peace with my skateboard career. And that as far as the business of skateboarding is concerned, that I now have a purpose to continue to be involved for a long time to come.”

Today, two major posts appeared on the web: an interview made by By Chris Nieratko posted on ESPN and a leftover question posted on Mike Vallely’s web site. They are both insightful and show another facet, more mature of the Mike Vallely we know.

That Bones Brigade reunion is definitely good news. When skaters get together and shun a non-skater-owned company, that’s always good news…
