Mike McGill

January 9, 2007

A founding member of the Powell-Peralta Bones Brigade and inventor of the McTwist.  I recall his deck had cool graphics but the oddest shape of the Bones Brigade; the prevailing theory was that its shape accomodated McGill’s exclusively vert skateboard career.  But as anyone who’s seen Animal Chin knows, McGill skated his share of ditches too. 
(Anybody else remember Boneite?)
