Sunday Summon: Wallo’s Vintage Hawaii skate footage 1975

wallowsAfter randomly finding a link to the great opening edit from Wallows in Powell Peralta’s epic video production The Search for Animal Chin this morning on youtube I also stumbled across this small documentary on the hallowed spot that Hawaii is so famous for.

Take a historic look back at how skaters (and surfers) made use of this steep banked ditch on the Island of Oahu from 1975/1976 with skating from Art Hottendorf (who put the film together) and John Jardine.

Here’s the Animal Chin footage featuring Bones Brigade members Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain and Tommy Guerrero getting ‘bunsun over the junsun’ from circa 1986/87.
