Andy Evans’ Skate Crates Demo’s part 1

skate_cratesThere’s nothing like looking back into UK skate history at footage that has been archived for so long. Our mate Andy Evans has been sat on a bunch of demo footage until this week for Sidewalk‘s Crates series and it’s gold.

In their own words: Part 1 of The Demo’s Episode features footage from the 1991 Powell demo at Bath’s Victoria Park and a combined Faze 7 Real, Plan B and Black Label demo at Shrewsbury from 1992.

A lot of this footage has never been seen before so prepare yourself for footage of Tony Hawk, Bucky Lasek, Mike Manzoori, John Cardiel, Karma, Mark Gonzales, Salman Agah, Tim Brauch (RIP), Alan Peterson, Curtis McCann and more from a time when nobody but skateboarders gave two shits about skateboarding.
