Skateboarding wouldn’t be that same without him: George Powell

In the history of skateboarding there are a lot of influential people from the early days. Over the last couple of years, many of these guys got their fair share of coverage and their achievements got honored.

But there are also a few people in the background who changed skateboarding off the board, more than many of the famous pioneer skateboarders changed skateboarding on their boards.

George Powell is one of these guys in the background. As an engineer with the aspiration to perfection, he changed skateboarding. Bones Bearings, Bones Wheels, Bones Hardcore Bushings, Powell Peralta Skateboards, These Wheels. Most People relate these Brands with the best quality on the market. To make the best is George’s standard! Thanks for all the great product!
