The magic box of skateboard history will be opened once again this month as Stacy Peralta’s new documentary on The Bones Brigade is set to premiere at the Sundance Festival on the 21st January in the US.
Bones Brigade: An Autobiography features archival footage and moving first-person accounts from Brigade members Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerrero, Tony Hawk, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain, and Rodney Mullen, among many others.
The film documents the phenomenal scene that the team inspired at the time with their amazing skateboarding and goofy characters. Whether you are young or older, this will be a documentary that is a must see if you are a skateboarder. Tony Hawk talked to us briefly about the film in this recent video interview that you can view below, look out for the inevitable European screening announcements soon.
Tony Hawk is still the busiest and most dedicated skateboarder on the planet, and proved exactly that when he stopped overnight in London last month to inspire kids to support the Laureus project. This foundation uses the power of sport to help tackle pressing social challenges through a worldwide programme of sports related community development initiatives so we popped down to East London to see him box with the locals and discuss the past, present and future.
This video interview covers the Sport For Good Foundation, reminiscing the 1988 Bones Brigade Tour of Europe at the Latimer Road vert demo and skating the legendary Livingstone Skatepark in Scotland. We also ask Tony about how the Megaramp is making an impact across the planet, the rise of ams on the up, the growing popularity of indoor training facilities in the US, plus an insight into the forthcoming Bones Brigade documentary that is being put together right now by Stacy Peralta.
