Career And Professional Highlights

Best Known For…

Lance Mountain is best known for being a professional skateboarder and an artist.

In 1981, Variflex (deck sponsor) sponsored him on his first skateboard. In 1982, Lance Mountain was selected by the Powell-Peralta team. During his stint at the Powell-Peralta team, he developed a harmonious and friendly relationship with the manager of the team Stacy Peralta. Also, she directed the video series for the group Bones Brigade. Lance Mountain was featured in eight such videos. One of the most popular videos from the Bones Brigade in which Lance Mountain starred was 'The Search For Animal Chin', which was ultimately produced in 1991 as 'Eight'.

In 1983, Lance Mountain was the winner of the Upland Turkey Shoot competition which took place at Upland Skatepark, which further added to his fame. In this competition, contemporary team riders like Mike McGill, Steve Caballero, and skateboarder Tony Hawk took part. Following his success, he made an appearance in the 1984 short sports film 'The Bones Brigade Video Show'. In this video, Lance Mountain appeared in various segments that portrayed him as he skateboarded throughout the streets of Los Angeles in the USA. For this, he was featured to be skating in the vert (a skateboarding style).

The beginning of the '90s saw the skateboard industry undergo a major transformation. For this reason, street-style got more popular than vert skateboarding, which diminished the popularity and spread of 'The Bones Brigade Video Show'. Not only this but it also led to the rise of another batch of skaters. Following this, in 1991, Lance Mountain departed from Powell-Peralta and went on to become the co-founder of his skateboard company, called The Firm. Here, he along with Ray Barbee, who was his teammate at Powell-Peralta, gathered a group of skateboarders, like Rodrigo Teixeira and Bob Burnquist.

Lance Mountain's company, The Firm, continued to grow and they went into an agreement with Blitz Distribution. The company existed for more than 10 years, during which it produced four videos. But, on 13 March 2006, Lance Mountain declared The Firm's closing.

After The Firm came to an end, Lance Mountain, Bob Burnquist, and Rodrigo Teixeira, along with other members of the team joined the Flip company. The trio appeared in a video produced by Flip, called 'Extremely Sorry', which was released in 2009. As a team rider for Flip, Lance Mountain was seen in the video game by Tony Hawk titled 'Proving Ground'. This marked his debut in a video game series by Tony Hawk.

Lance Mountain is also considered to be an inventor of the fingerboard, as in the late '70s, he was the brain behind forming the prototype using cardboard, pencil erasers, and a disassembled Hot Wheels toy. This was featured in an article in the Transworld Skateboarding magazine, along with in a Powell-Peralta video, called 'Future Primitive'. Moreover, in Transworld Skateboarding, Lance Mountain ranked 18 out of the 30 Most Influential Skaters of All Time.

Not only was Lance Mountain the inventor of the fingerboard but also together with Caballero, he co-designed the Independent Stage V skateboard truck. Additionally, along with Neil Blender, he is the co-inventor of the transitional skateboard maneuver the Gay Twist ( a skateboarding trick also called Aerials).

Boasting several qualities, Lance Mountain is a well-known artist and his official website features his art as well as his art collection. The catalog has three sections. One is called Art Shows, which gives an insight into the art shows, which have been produced by Lance Mountain. Another section is called Art Owners, where portrait photographs of Mountain's art collectors are displayed.
