Goon started in 1997 as a way to present an element of skateboarding
that seemed was getting pushed aside back then - vert and pool
skating. The other ingredient to it's creation was that the music
that had crept into skateboarding was not Punk rock.
name Team Goon goes back to 1984 and comes from the name that was
given to Sunday Punker baseball. Punks that were part of the
Fullerton Punk scene as well as members of the bands that called
Fullerton their home like DI, Agent Orange, The Adolescents and
Social Distortion made up the crowd that played on Sunday. The name
Team Goon soon became synonymous with hanging out with friends, fun
and athletic activity.....and of course the party's that followed
The Team Goon name was adopted into our skateboarding activity to
provide linkage to the old school Punk scene and would serve as a
basis to not let the old skate styles die.
website www.teamgoon.com was started as a way to present the old
school style to a new generation of skaters and never had any
intention of being more than that. A lot of old school Punk bands like
D.I., The Skulls,
The Adolescents, CH3 and Agression to name a few, really liked what
Team Goon / Big Wheel Media was about and became early supporters of the project.
From there the response to what
we were doing was overwhelming. It then evolved into a media company
of sorts as you see it today where we perform photo shoots, provide
content that is syndicated, documentation and historical archive as
well as video services.
Team Goon / Big Wheel Media staff goes out and cover many shows and
major skate events, as well as places that they were skating and put
it all in the news section on the web. Soon the news section was
seeing 500,000 plus unique visitors a month to it. This site is a
genuine mix of music and skateboarding that will entertain you for
Goon / Big Wheel Media is a media driven site that is active in the
music and skate scene.

For more information on having Team Goon assist you with your photo
needs email us HERE (spam protection)
would like to have us consider listing your shows, we need to have
them sent over via email in this format.
For example, this is how each show should be sent over for the
shows you send:
Dickies w/ Smut Peddlers, The Mormons, Punk Rock Vatos & Death
Party at Safari Sams Hollywood, CA
If they are sent over in any other format, in all capital
letter, flyer graphics and stuff it just creates more work for us,
and if we get super busy (like always) the show can not be listed at
all or even in a timely manner. Send
the show listing to us - email us
