There are a handful of articles from the seventies and early 1980s that have never left my memory. Everyone talks about John Smythe’s articles/Stecyk’s articles as their turning points, but for me, Tony Alva’s Mad Dog interview, the Steve Olson interview, and this interview in Action Now with Duane Peters were the three that have stuck in my head. I was 13 when I first read this and Duane’s stories and way of talking were just so radical. Wigs, scooters, fighting surfers… So good.
