Written by on January 19, 2012 

If you are anything like me, then most of your skateboarding knowledge comes from the Tony Hawk: Pro Skater videogame series. Who knew the famous skater had stirred up some controversy as an initial outcast? Exploring that and more director Stacy Peralta returns to Sundance with a new documentary titled Bones Brigade, after the famous troupe of skaters. Following up the much-praised Dogtown and Z-Boys, this looks to be just an engaging and informative. Check out a trailer below via THR for the film that also features Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerrero, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain and Rodney Mullen.


Today skateboarding is omnipresent. Take a walk down any street in any town, and you are destined to see someone riding a skateboard. Well, it wasn’t always like that. In the early ’80s, skateboarding was fading away until Stacy Peralta brought a profoundly talented group of outsiders together and dubbed them the Bones Brigade. This documentary chronicles their epic rise, using awesome archival footage and moving first-person accounts from Brigade members Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerrero, Tony Hawk, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain, and Rodney Mullen, among others. Through passion, drive, creativity, and a surprising sense of teamwork, they revitalized the sport and influenced generations to come.
