Then I watched Bones Brigade: An Autobiography
Let me begin by saying I was very, very into skateboarding at one point in my life. I did not do it casually, I did it every day for a good 7 years. It pretty much defined me as an individual.

It was that good. If you are even just remotely interested in skateboarding, do yourself a favor and watch this movie. If you actually did skate, it is a must watch.

I always had to utmost of respect for him. Now that respect is multiplied by a thousand. He alone is enough reason to watch the documentary.
Brilliant, brilliant documentary, and really does tell the story of a very, very important group of skateboarders.
