Last Friday I was lucky enough to get tickets to the sold out UK premier of; Bones Brigade: An Autobiography, a documentary about the most influential skate team (brigade) in skateboarding history and the company that made it all happen; Powell-Peralta.
The creative vision of Stacy Powell and George Peralta in the early 80’s changed the path of skateboarding for ever. They took it from a dying path of an increasingly regimented organised sport in the 70’s, to a lifestyle culture, rich in expressive freedoms, which is still at it’s core today.
This film not only brought back so many awesome memories from years gone by, but also reminded me of so many important current things too.
If you get a chance to watch it, you will not be disappointed.
Just another reminder that life is all about the stories.
Wanna see some legendary Powell-Peralta graphics…
