STREET PLANT Last round of these Limited Edition / Hand Signed & Numbered @streetplantbrnd Barnyards for 2015 now available! More Limited Edition Barnyards won’t be available again until next year and never again in red. Hand Crafted by Master Skateboard Craftsman @professorschmitt at #PsStix the Street Plant Barnyard Reissue board matches the exact dimensions of the original Vallely Barnyard from World Industries. Pioneered by Mike Vallely in 1989, The Barnyard is widely considered the prototype for the modern symmetrical popsicle stick skateboard and is credited with changing skateboarding and skateboard shapes forever! This Barnyard Reissue features the original Barnyard artwork by Marc McKee with the addition of the Street Plant logo on the top and bottom graphics. This reissue is a limited run of 100 Red top and bottom veneers all hand signed and numbered by Mike Vallely. Once these 100 Limited Edition Red Barnyard boards are sold they will never be reproduced in this color combination.

Savannah Slamma, 1987. This was my second Pro Street Contest. I’d broken my elbow in practice. I was in a lot of pain, physically and mentally. The AWESOME @clausgrabke gave me an elbow pad and some words of encouragement. I still tried to do a Ho-Ho Plant with a broken elbow. I’m not sure how I lifted the board but you can see how quickly I change my mind and how gingerly I grab it and put it back down. The 360° Indy is an anomaly. I’d never done one before and I’ve never done one since. It was a spontaneous trick I did in the moment using my good hand. Also, I'm wearing a Hustler Magazine hat. I have no idea why. #MikeVallely #MikeVallelyVideo #StreetPlantBrand

STREET PLANT From BoardSportSource.Com / Skateboardings's Renaissance Brands Article: With his Long Beach-based @streetplantbrnd label, Mike Vallely is assuming full control of running a skateboard brand the way he sees fit. Together with his daughter and partner, @emilyvallely the man behind the iconic elephant graphic is building a company that bridges the gap between classic graphics from the golden days of revolutionary street skating and today’s consumer tastes for authentic labels with the kind of street cred not to be found at the nearest mall. www.boardsportsource.com/#!/article/skateboarding-s-small-brand-renaissance-street-plant Photo @iriscon #MikeVallely #EmilyVallely #StreetPlantBrand #NeverComply #VGHC

I’ve personally played Alex’s many times through the years, starting in 2003, and the @revomutha set at Switchblades may be one of my favorite sets of music I have ever been a part of there. Such a great time! We still have some of the Switchblades Fest T-shirts (I’m wearing in this photo) available.
