Stacy Peralta, Distinguished Speaker Series at UCSB. Filmed on 2/7/2017
In 1984, Stacy inadvertently created the action sports video. His intention was to produce an inexpensive promotional video that skate shop owners could play in their stores to promote Powell Peralta. No one anticipated that the VCR revolution would cause these videos to become cult classics, while establishing Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain, Tommy Guerrero and Rodney Mullen as international stars.
