A recent study conducted by me has found that 90 percent of skateboard graphics in suck. Over the course of my 11 years as a skateshop owner I have watched in horror as the imagery on the bottom of skateboards deteriorated from works of art worthy of gallery walls into something like midterm projects from a graphic design class at a community college. In the 90s the skateboard was used as a canvas for artistic expression. Sadly, the current generation of skaters have been brainwashed into paying top dollar to act as moving billboards for corporations.
There were a ton of emails and questions floating around after we posted this stupidly popular video , mostly, who was the girl skating the bowl at the end? Where did she learn to skate? So we did some research heavy internet stalking and got in contact with Joanna Mahaffy, the bowlrider at the end of the Playboy TV preview segment. How did you get approached to do the Playboy. TV feature? How did they find out that you could actually skate? Did you only do that one bowl riding scene as shown in the trailer or do more stuff?
