Bones Brigade: Stacy Peralta Revisits Early Skateboarding Culture In New Doc.

In 2001 Director/Producer Stacy Peralta’s Dogtown & Z-Boys took us into the world of 70s skateboarding that had just exploded in California thanks the the Zephyr team. This year, Peralta wants to take us a bit further down the line to the 80s where skate legends representing the Bones Brigade – Tony Hawk and Christian Hosoi battled for glory while reinventing the sport.

If the Zephyr team ignited the fuse for skateboarding, then it was the Bones Brigade that caused skateboarding to go nuclear. Bones had it’s premiere at Sundance, and is still awaiting a distribution deal. In the meantime, check out the teaser below for Bones, as well as the original trailer for Peralta‘s earlier work Dogtown and Z-Boys.
