Bucky Lasek Final Runs at Pro-Tec Pool Party 2012

Bucky Lasek Pro-Tec Pool Party Combi Pool Final Runs
George Powell and Stacy Peralta were responsible for creating one of the best skateboard teams ever in history. I was sponsored by Powell Peralta back in 1988 when the Bones Brigade came to do a demo at Reach for the Beach skate/surf shop in Whitemarsh, Md. They later came to Fisherman's Inn, Miller's Island. Where Ed Hicks had built one of the worlds first steel vert ramps. It was here that I met and skated with Tony Hawk , Mike Mcgill, Tommy Guerrero, and Stacy Peralta. Stacy pulled me aside while I was skating and asked if I would be interested in riding for Powell Peralta. It was a life changing experience from one of the most inspirational skate icons and at the age of 14 it was mind blowing to me. Last night Stacy did it to me again by complimenting my skating and lines in the bowl. It was a total flash back for me and something I will never forget. I know that I was not the only one affected by this because I saw the young kid in Lance Mountain and @stevecaballero as well. Last night was truely an amazing moment.
