Skater Profile: Duane Peters

Duane Peter is probably the only pro skater that ever spit on Tony Hawk. Of course he spit on Tony when tony was a little kid. I guess Tony was going to compete is some kind of bowl competition and Duane was there. And what do punk rock skaters of the 80s do? They spit on their competition. Lol.

Duane is known as the “Master of Disaster” because he invented that trick (the Disaster). Duane is from the old school so his territory is pools and bowls. He has brief hiatus in the 1990s. Apparently he had a short stint with drugs – to the point where he had a life epiphany and he said to himself: “Either get busy living, or get busy dying”. That was the turning point in Duane’s life and he return to his career in skateboarding.

Duane is a beast. He might be skating to this very day – and considering his age, not many skaters can keep thrashin into their 50s.
