Back in the early 90s, H-Street manager Mike Ternasky wanted to provide an alternative to the big corporations who were dominating the skate industry at the time, and his plan for a small rider-driven company took shape in the form of Plan B, which he founded in 1991. Before long, he had assembled one of the most dominant teams in the history of the sport, including legendary names such as Pat Duffy and Rodney Mullen.
However, in 1994, after Mike’s death in a car accident, the Plan B name seemed destined for the history books, and it was not until 2005 that founding team members Danny Way and Colin McKay relaunched the brand with their own version of the super team and a dream to continue the legacy of Plan B.
Since its rebirth, Plan B has gone from strength to strength, and has once again become a leader in the skateboard industry, selling decks, wheels and clothing from its base in Irvine, California. The Plan B team is now once again one of the most elite in the world, featuring Way, Duffy and McKay as well as pros Ryan Sheckler, PJ Ladd, Torey Pudwill, Felipe Gustavo, and ams Trevor McClung and Scott Decenzo.
Plan B’s original platform was a series of groundbreaking videos that showcased the most progressive skateboarding the world had ever seen, including what many consider to be the best skate video of all time, 1992’s Questionable. Other notable videos from the Ternasky era include Virtual Reality (1993) and Second Hand Smoke from 1994.
