It has been over 30 years since Guy Mariano first made his grand entrance in skateboarding. His introductory section in Powell-Peralta’s Ban This was a head-turner, and a head-scratcher. This video introduced the LA Boys—Rudy Johnson, Gabriel Rodriguez, Paulo Diaz, and Mariano—setting in motion one of the most interesting chain of events in skate history. (See Colin Kennedy‘s documentary The LA Boys for more on this.) In 2016, Mariano co-founded Numbers with his former Girl teammate Eric Koston. Today, he announced that he has joined Shane O’Neill’s April team. Congrats!
“Incredibly honored & grateful for the support of Shane O’Neill & the April team for allowing me to keep my dream alive. Excited for this new blessing.”
