Powell Peralta is an American skateboard company founded by George Powell and Stacy Peralta in 1978. CalStreets or CSI (early 80’s) was Powells’s 2nd distributor in Canada after Northwest Skateboards (Harry Greenberg).
The company rose to prominence in the 1980s as skateboarding began maturing as a sport. The company featured the Bones Brigade, a team of the era’s top competitors.
Peralta left the company in 1991 and Powell continued to produce skateboard equipment as Powell, Bones Bearings and RollerBones.
