Filmed and edited by Josh McHale
A collaboration 25+ years in the making.
Mike Vallely and Jim “Red Dog” Muir had an early conversation in 1988 at the Tempe, AZ Duel in the Desert contest. Jim commented on how Mike V was no “Bones Brigader” and was instead Dogtown material. Through the years Jim, his brother Mike Muir of Suicidal Tendencies, and Mike V “have lived in that place where Skateboarding and Punk Rock music intersect” - Speaking their minds and doing things their own way.
25+ years later DTXST is helping the story come full circle. Mike V, respected for his history and contribution to skateboarding, Mike Muir, lead singer/founder of Suicidal Tendencies, and Jim Muir, a 2014 Skateboarding Hall of Fame Inductee bring you a 3 skateboard series.
Releasing under the Suicidal Skates brand and shaped by Jim Muir. Jim drew inspiration from the mid-80’s Dogtown Web skateboard and Street Plant era.
Artwork by Ric Clayton: the original ST Possessed to Skate artist. Ric’s
inspiration is drawn from Mike V’s iconic Judo Street Plant. From concept to the concrete: by skateboarders, for skateboarders.
