Ripper in the Sky – George Powell in Vancouver
Ultimate Distribution and Skate-One take retailers out for lunch and a plane ride.

The weather couldn’t have been better on May 19th, 2015. After a brief meet and greet at Ultimate’s office, we loaded up the van and drove to the Boundary Bay Airport just outside of Vancouver BC. There we met the legendary George Powell, founder of Powell Peralta Skateboards.

George sat down with some of our Powell retailers, had lunch and then fired up the engines for a plane ride around Vancouver. Meeting George would have been enough of a treat for these guys but actually going for a ride in his “ripper” airplane was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Ultimate Distribution would like to thanks George Powell and the team at Skate-One for helping make this happen. We also wanted to send a huge thanks to the retailers for taking the time to come out, meet George and talk about their business.
