For as long as pro skateboarder Mike Peterson’s been in the game—and for as much as we seem to love the guy—it’s surprising he hasn’t been featured in more issues. Peterson was a big name in skateboarding way before the Void was conceived—he won the Tampa Am at age 23 in ’99—and was still quite relevant by the time we were ready to interview him for Issue #1 in 2010.

He graced the cover in March of 2012 (Issue #17, see above) and has made sporadic appearances since. He recently moved the uber-core shop of which he’s founding partner, The Block Skate Supply, from Riverside to Springfield, where he’s continuing to keep the skate community stoked and well supplied.
