Performed By: Johnny O’Connor.

The History:
As the story goes, the Powell Peralta Bones Brigade was guest coaching at a Swedish skateboard camp in 1985. Tony Hawk did this grab for the first time and needed a name for it. That night, the camp cook served some questionable tasting fish for dinner, one thing lead to another, and the name stalefish was born.
