Bones Brigade: An Autobiography (2012)

Stacy Peralta's followup to Dogtown and the Z Boys. I love the first doc so much as it reminds me of when I started skating back in the 70's when we made our own boards from planks and Flyer rollerskates.

This doc, whilst really good, didn't seem to have the focus of the first film. It did capture the personalities in the Bones Brigade skate team though with Rodney Mullen and Lance Mountain shining though. Alva makes a few brief and welcome appearances and unfortunately so does Fred Durst. Covers the movement from skateparks to half-pipes and the new tricks this enabled.

If you're into skating and was either there in the 80's or wanted to know what the superstar skate scene was like back then you really shouldn't miss this.
