Duane Peters represents several decades of skateboarding, punk rock and living on the edge. He’s been clinically dead twice in his life, he’s invented more tricks than a lot of skaters actually have in their bag of tricks ( I just found out that he is the guy behind the indy air, yeah! My favorite trick! ) and he’s been skating longer than most of you who are reading this have been on this planet.
Thrasher Magazine has put together a 5 part online video interview with this amazing personality so follow the links below to find out more about Duane Peters. I also included a video from 1979 with Duane ripping a pool…let the date sink in…1979 people….
