Lance Mountain

Bones Brigade OG

WHO THE F*CK IS THIS GUY?

Ever heard of the Bones Brigade? You know, one of the most influential skateboarding companies and teams in the history of the sport? The Bones Brigade helped guide skateboarding into the late 80s during its explosion in popularity — and Lance Mountain was one of their most popular skateboarders. He’s ridden for Flip, Nike SB, Independent Trucks, Bones Bearings, and Spitfire Wheels since then, and has never lost his love for creative, inventive, and unexpected skateboarding tricks.

Lance is also a killer artist, producing local art shows and exhibitions all inspired by his life as one of the world’s greatest skateboarders. Oh and by the way, did we mention that he invented the fingerboard, just as a fun little joke? Now it’s a whole section of the toy industry. That’s what we call being influential.

WHY YOU SHOULD CARE.

Founder of The Firm, incredible skateboarder who’s seen both the original revolution and the new wave—Lance Mountain has etched his name into the Mount Rushmore of skateboarding greatness. If you don’t study him, you don’t know skateboarding.
