From crew to legend: Piss Drunx
When in 1998 a few skaters in Huntington Beach were looking for common apartments as a home base to start their careers, it's likely no one had a clue what stone they'd set rolling. Even today, the "Piss Drunx" belong to one of the most legendary crews in skateboarding and the PD logo to one of the most famous and probably most tattooed motifs from the skateboard cosmos.
From t-shirt to hoodie - the Piss Drunx logo on clothing
Dustin Dollin, former figurehead of Piss Drunx, still gets fan art and pictures of Piss Drunx tattoos to this day. To keep the crew's ethos alive, he launched the distribution of Piss Drunx clothing in partnership with the Baker Boys Distro.
The hoodies, sweaters and tees from Piss Drunx, which you can shop at skatedeluxe, all feature the famous logo, so there's no mistaking them. By the way, their unique design goes back to Aaron Pearcey, who designed it in the style of the emblem of the punk band Dead Kennedys.
Legendary stuff: the former Piss Drunx crew
Controversial, rebellious, but also tragic, as well as being some of the best skaters in the world - that's one way to summarize the short story of the Piss Drunx. The core of the crew included Andrew Reynolds, Erik Ellington, Ali Boulala, Aaron Pearcy, Jim Greco, Elissa Steamer and Dustin Dollin, who are also known beyond the skate scene.
Most of the members have now turned their backs on the PD lifestyle. However, the legends surrounding the crew, their excesses and groundbreaking skateboarding at the turn of the 2000s persist to this day.
