Just finished watching this (it's on Netflix) and it was awesome!  Rodney Mullen is some kind of genius savant, very intelligent guy.

Yeah, I was surprised to hear him talk about heavy handed his father was about skateboarding.

So Tony Hawk was making $20K a month as a 17 year old in 1985...CRAZY!

I think we all watched this at the same time! I saw it this past weekend.

Lance Mountain, poor bastard. Seems he had a hard time with being "the character".

Yeah as soon as I saw it in the listings on Netflix I turned to the wife and said "We have to watch this right now!"

Mike McGill is going seriously bald!  Dude still rips though...I saw him at the Encinitas YMCA once.

The mctwist was the game changer in vert skating. The bummer about the movie, they brushed over the rest of the bones brigade! Mike V and Ray Barbee's parts in Public Domain were the game changers in skateboarding. No one was doing street like those guys, then from that point forward skating turned away from vert.

Yes, rodney mullen is a genius.

Ray Barbee plays a mean guitar for sure.

Yeah Mike V., Ray Barbee...those guys were the PP street aficionados.  I believe Ray Barbee invented the Skidoo...that's what we used to call it anyway...he was/is a very smooth skater.  Mike V. was "discovered at Trashmore in VA if I recall correctly as he was working the parking lot like no one else.

I got inspired to go skating again after watching that but then I remembered my knee if effed up.

I've been listening to Tommy G for years. Everything he puts out is A+

yeah, i got inspired the other night but since i bent my knee to the left
skating hasn't been the same... doesn't feel right
im thinking i need to restrengthen my knee but im also thinking
that i need to just stay off of the skateboard
:(
i really didn't want to type that last line

 I still have to see this. I watched the other series about Gator and it went into the amount of money they were making and it also showed how street skating rose up and the guys like Gator could not street skate as well as vert skate so they lost it.

 I keep eying my kids' board. Thinking of taking it for a spin in one of the local parks here soon.

 And I will do my work out today. Rick and Dan made sure of that. Have to keep myself semi-injury free for awhile at least until it is "Hoveround time".

Skating was my life when I was a kid...we didn't live near the ocean so skating was the next best thing.  I would easily skate for 8 hours on a Saturday.  Good times.

And I skated pretty much right up until 2010 when I started getting injured more easily and I decided that surfing was something I could do well into my old age whereas skating wasn't...so I stopped skating bowls and ramps and stuck to longboarding on the street...which is still fun.

see, i can say the same thing, don't live near the ocean like i want so i skate
but i only longboard now

the shortboard stuff stopped when i took a skateboard to the taint
when i was pulling off a 360 flip and obviously caught it the wrong way

i would longboard like a person that was surfing a solid wave though

front and backside snaps, 180 and 360 slide outs, lay backs, bertlemann slides
all sorts of awesomeness really....

the thing that started the decline was the bullet
im not going to get into that really
i will say, though, that it really changed everything with my
skateboarding and i am going to try to skateboard more often
after i restrengthen my knee (hand in hand with the opposite leg)

longboards are just the way to go after a while
