Number 6 in the Bones Brigade video series - if you're counting - and it still carries that signature Stacy Peralta film style. From skits to interjected montages, it reeks of Bones Brigade and the energy their videos had.

The theme from this flick is the sk8-scooters kids made in the 50's (or in that vicinity) which were simply skateboards with an upright console to hold onto. Fortunately things have progressed from those days and even the latter "sky hooks" that someone thought would be a good idea for the ollie-challenged individual.

The skating in the earlier releases definitely had a different tone to it. Even across the few years of Bones Brigade videos, you see a progression in styles and abilities. Today these flicks are relevant with plenty of great skating and scenes you only hear about in skate-lore. Take a brief look into history, sop up the 1980's and peep this vid.
