Preston was traveling around the world shooting and making skate videos since the mid 90’s. Here’s a look back, starting with his first video, JUSTICE.
Preston logged more miles on the road and more hours behind the camera than anyone in skateboarding. We dug into the files to show you some of the good times we shared out there.
The Lance Mountain Love Letter continues with Lance showing some love for 70’s pro skater Darrell Miller. Darrell was one of the first pros to give Lance boards- he also came up with the Miller Flip. Watch and learn some skate history direct from Lance Mountain.
Lance Mountain set out to make a TV show in 2009 to pay respect to the generation of skaters from the late 1970s. This included two pioneers Bobby Valdez and Darrell Miller who didn’t become household names, but nonetheless they had a huge impact on Lance and skateboarding’s progression. The show never happened but Jeff Grosso and the Six Stair crew located all of the footage and decided to cut the story together. Have a look!
