33 years after it’s birth, skateboarding’s transcendent Bones Brigade reemerges in an autobiographical film, postured to capture the true essence and historical impact of the sport’s most iconic team. Presented by Vans, directed by Stacy Peralta, and starring the original Brigade’s Steve Caballero, Tony Hawk, Mike McGill, Tommy Guerrero, Rodney Mullen and Lance Mountain, the film follows the beginnings of the modern street skate era, reinvention of endemic advertising, creation of the skate video, and introduction to skateboarding’s most influential athletes behind it all. Expected to release in mid-November. Check out the film’s 2:31 trailer above.
Fresh out the fryer, independently produced and directed by Lance Mountain, “Pool Service” reminds us why Lance never goes out style. 30 years later, the skateboard legend and the Nike SB construction crew (including 2011 Skater of the Year – Grant Taylor, Peter Hewitt, Al Partanen and Alex Olson) dig and build a pool for a family away on vacation, finishing and sessioning it just prior to their return. Featuring music by Indian Wig (Lance and long-time cohorts Neil Blender, Hogo Nagarian, and Eddie Glass) and Gaoler’s Daughter. Video above. Enjoy.Lance Mountain, Nike
