When six teenage boys came together as a skateboarding team in the 1980s, they reinvented not only their chosen sport but themselves too - as they evolved from insecure outsiders to the most influential athletes in the field.
An exhaustive - no, make that exhausting - look at a team of young skateboarders ...
Like a high school reunion, filled with affectionate memories of an earlier, more innocent, time.
This film makes a great companion piece to Peralta's "Dogtown and Z-Boys,'' which leaves off where "Bones Brigades'' begins.
Gradually becomes an echo chamber of personal dramas and exploits, not to mention propulsive soundtrack cues - all within a sport already nursing a penchant for self-documentation.
The film risks self-importance, but when Peralta admits through tears just how much he loves his skater charges, it imparts what every parent knows ...
Peralta's doc is a generous, tasty slice of skateboarding history.

Amazing Retrospective Great movie and so much that I didn't know about the Bones Brigade. Excellent skateboard history lesson would be to watch Dogtown and the Z-Boyz, then Bones Brigade followed by The Man Who Souled the World. You would have skateboarding history from its invention all the way through the 90s. Buy this video and support Stacey...he deserves it.
Best skate Doc ever! This brought back alot of memories of the good old days of skating! These guys were pioneers in the popularity of the sport as well as inventors of most of the tricks performed by all skaters BONES BRIGADE! SKATE AND DESTROY!
Skating in the 80's Skateboarding in the 1980's was a time to remember for sure! The bones brigade were one of the best teams around and created much of the tricks you see today. This is a must watch for anyone from that era or for the younger ones that want to see where skateboarding came from.Enjoy!

At the age of 12, Amelia Brodka went to the X-Games and discovered that girls can skateboard. It began a life-long obsession that led her full circle to those very X-Games as an alternate. After working very hard the following year she earned an invite to be a competitor. Then they canceled her event.
Amelia's desire to find answers led her on a quest to examine the skateboarding industry's approach to how it markets, promotes and supports women in its sport, and to find out if there is a place for women in professional skateboarding.
Through interviews with other women who skateboard and prominent figures in the skateboarding industry, exciting skateboarding footage and her own experience, Amelia paints a picture of a subculture within a subculture on the verge of breaking out.

Hill Street looks at the evolution of skateboarding culture in Dublin since the late 1980s up until today. The initial driving force behind the scene was a proprietor of a unique skate shop in North Dublin inner city – ‘Clive’s of Hill Street’. From here, Clive Rowen single-handedly progressed the skate scene through the building of primitive ramps at the shop before graduating to a temporary skate park in the Top Hat Ballroom in Dún Laoghaire, County Dublin. Clive later managed to convince the Powell Peralta ‘Bones Brigade’ Team, including the legendary Tony Hawk, to visit the skate park for a now historic demo. The film comprises interviews with key players in both the Irish and global skate community and features rare, never-seen-before footage. A fascinating look at the early stages of the Irish skateboarding scene that is as much a wonderful introduction to a rich subculture as it is an exploration of a sport trying to legitimise itself against the backdrop of 80s Ireland.
