Among other accomplishments, Mike Vallely is Jonathan's (26) and was Stephen's (19) HERO,
not to mention Vince's love of his hard core muzak.
We, involved in Pitcher Park, consider this is a complete honor and privledge to have Mike Vallely help us in our effort in any way that he can! I am sure he knows all too well how much skateboarding and the learning this skill does for an individual. Although he is a pro, the pro's of skateboarding are a different breed as they remember how it all started for them, most on the streets, a curb, a trash can, wooden jumps or any other obstacles they could put in their path with a bunch of friends, just hanging out! Skateboarders and bikers and bladers have a common, unspoken, brotherly bond....just like that of Vince and Stevie! They can look at each other and just say "what's sup" and skate...watch each other skate and fall....and they just know, "it's all good" when they are skating together! It's what they love and they are very passionate individuals not only about their sport but passionate about life in genteral!
