Mike Vallely Profile Information

  • Every Board we make has a Story, a Reason for Existing. The Story of The Street Tank starts in Carnegie, PA at @flatbarskateshop, where I met Artist & Skateboarder @mike_aches on the #OpenHeartedMidWestTour2016. Unsolicited, Mike had designed a Beautiful #StreetPlantBattalion themed poster for my visit to the shop, which he printed off and gave to anyone interested to have me sign. Mike was shy and understated, but his Art was Bold and Powerful. Mike’s Thoughtfulness moved me, and his Art Struck a Chord. I knew I had made a Friend and had met an Artist I would want to work with for @streetplantbrand.

Mike has done some really incredible Street Plant/Skateboard themed pieces since that first Battalion Poster, but I always felt that if we were going to do a Board with Mike, it would have to be based around that first poster. His Bulldog Character, which he started drawing at age 14, has an Energy to it that continues to speak to me, and Represents the Character of The Battalion: Courage and Tenacity!

The Street Tank (Link In Bio) has been a long time in coming. After a few false starts, we finally worked out a Shape w/ @professorschmitt that has a heavy Late 70’s influence mixed with the Shapes I rode in the Mid-80s, yet with the Function of a Modern Board. Then it was a matter of designing the Art to work with the Shape and the Wheel Wells. Mike and @robxwallace dialed in these details, and #PSstix cut the Boards with Hard Edge Tops for that Late 70’s/Early 80’s feel.

We are Honored to call @mike_aches and Friend and to Present the @streetplantbattalion Street Tank. It may have taken a while for this Story to be told, but it is one that was worth waiting for.
