Harry Perry has been the most famous skater in Venice Beach since 1973 when he made his debut as a turbaned, guitar playing, street performer. Originally he wore quad roller skates but later he made the transition to inline skates. Harry has appeared in many movies and videos and in 2002 a likeness of Harry was installed in one of the theme parks at Disneyland in Anaheim California. (source)
