Duane Peters is the most hard core skateboarder that ever lived and ever will be. You must watch the Duane Peter’s Story. Talk about tough. Any skateboarder like Duane Peters who can still rip up a pool at 40 plus years of age, is a legend in my book. Duane Peters was born to skate.
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.

Everyone wants the Duane Peters Pig Skateboard deck by Black Label Skateboards. This particular Duane Peters deck was made in 2003. I think a few versions of the Duane Peters Pig deck were made afterwards featuring different graphics. Vision Street Wear also make a Duane Peters DP shoe which comes in many varieties.
Duane Peters is the lead singer of the band U.S. Bombs.
