C.R. Stecyk III is an American artist, photographer and writer. A Southern California native, he is mostly known for his conceptual art pieces of the 1970s and '80s, and for documenting surfing and skateboarding culture -- particularly via a series of influential articles for Skateboarder Magazine in the mid-1970s describing the innovative developments of the Z-Boys skateboarding team. [1] Stecyk created designs for the skateboard brand Powell-Peralta, having coined the name of their team, the Bones Brigade, and produced advertizing photographs.[citation needed] Stecyk coined the phrase "Skate and Destroy."[citation needed] Stecyk was involved with the founding of the Jeff Ho Surfboards and Zephyr Productions surf shop in Santa Monica, California.[citation needed]

Stecyk's life was touched upon in the 2001 award-winning documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys, the film Lords of Dogtown in 2005,[citation needed] and the 2012 documentary "Bones Brigade: An Autobiography."[citation needed]
