ABOUT MIKE VALLELY:
Mike Vallely's career began in 1986. At the age of 16 he appeared on the cover of Thrasher magazine with one of his legendary figures, the "Sad Ho-Ho Plant". With his hardcore skate style he was quickly spotted by pro skater Lance Mountain who recommended Powell & Peralta to sign him. He then became one of the brand's youngest pro skaters. In an issue of Transworld Skateboarding Magazine, he appears in a photo alongside legendary skaters Natas Kaupas and Mark Gonzales pointing at him, symbolizing that this teenager was revolutionizing street skateboarding and that he was now "the man to be continued".
Throughout his career, Mike Vallely has counted Powell & Peralta, World Industries, Venture Trucks, Tracker Trucks, and many others among his sponsors. He then founded his own brand "Street Plant" and also had a career in ice hockey, music ( Black Flag , Mike V and the Rats, Revolution Mother, ...) and cinema ( Very Bad Trip 1 & 3 , ...). Today he is also responsible for the team of pro skaters of the Cariuma brand.
