Vintage Powell Peralta Mike McGill "McTwist" Poster
Mike McGill is a professional skateboarder. He was noticed by Alan "Ollie" Gelfand, inventor of the skateboard trick the ollie, at an early age skating in Florida and began to ride for the iconic Powell Peralta skate team shortly after. McGill was a member of the Bones Brigade alongside Tony Hawk, Rodney Mullen, Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerrero, and Lance Mountain. They were the decade's most elite crew of skaters. McGill invented the McTwist, a 540 degree spin, in 1984 which changed skateboarding forever. In 1987, McGill opened his own skate shop, McGill's Skateshop in Encinitas, CA, in 1987 and he still operates it to this day. This original Mike McGill Powell Peralta poster, with folds and some tears around corners and edges, features a sequence of McGill blasting a McTwist in the deep end of a pool while his buddies watch on. Would look great in a frame!
