Plan B Skateboards began in 1991 as the skateboard industry made a move into a more progressive era. The upstart mastermind was led by Mike Ternasky who featured team riders like Danny way, Matt Hensley, Mike Carroll, Sean Scheffey, and Rick Howard.
In 1994, Plan B Skateboards leader Ternasky was in an unexpected car accident that claimed his life. The company was left in the hands of close friends, Danny Way and Colin McKay who made a valiant effort in trying to manage both their own professional skateboarding careers, keep the Plan B operation up and running, plus dealing with the loss of a their best friend.
In 2005, Plan B, in association with Syndrome Distribution, re-launched with an added set of professionally elite skaters. The new team now consists of Paul Rodriguez, Ryan Sheckler, Torey Pudwill, PJ Ladd, Pat Duffy, Colin McKay and Danny Way. These well known pro skateboarders are some of the biggest names around thanks to wins at the Street League, Maloof, Tampa Pro, X-Games, and the Dew Tour.
Plan B has prevailed through the hard time and has produced a brand that is familiar throughout the global skateboard community featuring top of the line skateboards that are made in North America. Thanks to a stacked team of super pro skateboarders and a strong product selection including Plan B skateboard decks, Plan B skate wheels, Plan B clothes for skateboarding, and more Plan B now is one of the strongest skateboard brands out there.
