Paul Rivas interviews George Powell on life as a Hollywood High Sheik, being a freshman engineer at UCSB before transfering to Stanford, building his first skateboard as a kid in LA and later enjoying skateboarding's first resurgence while at Stanford, getting introduced to corporate culture at HP, quitting to sail from the Caribbean to San Francisco, his employment ups and downs, becoming a skateboard company, crossing paths with Stacy Peralta, the story of the iconic Powell Peralta graphics and the artist VCJ who drew them, how college students can skate better, and taking his small business from zero to the top and then back to zero and then back to the top again only for way less money.
