#BONES for life....This took me right back to the 80's. Site is easy to navigate & awesome selection of authentic old skool PowellPeralta products. As a new Dad and former Sk8boarder this puts a smile on my face to see what you guys have done. Sebby will be rockin' BonesBrigade tshirts very soon #Sk8orDie #DugFresh— Doug
Just to let you know you guys changed my life as a kid to enjoy skating and surfing. So glad for all you have done for us. Its been 30 some years watching the team go through all kinds of stuff and change the world! Thang you again for all you have done!— Bryan Copeland
Can't wait to see what you guys come up with for Animal Chin's 30th anniversary!— Kevin
I finally got around to watching this movie last night.— Matt “emphor” Davey
It was great to hear people I looked up to when I was a kid (I was in the prime demographic during the mid-late 80s) talk about their life and experiences in such an open and candid way. I didn't realise half the stuff these guys went through back in the day, but they did reaffirm to me skateboarding is a great culture to grow up with, be influenced by and be a part of.
It was great to be inspired again (besides the still-sick skating) by comments, ideas and personalities. I've taken a lot away from this movie, it was more than just a trip down memory lane for me.
I went to a screening in old Montreal . Got to meet : TH , RM , TG , MM , RB , just to name a few ! I hadn't ridden a Sk8 in almost 20 years . Inspired me , reminded me how much I loved skating ! Got back into it . Been 3 years and 50+lbs less . I love to skate ! 100% SKATER ! live to ride , ride to live ! Thanks Bones Brigade for bringing me back ! SK8 forever— Jaymie “Beebs” Bibok
I attended high school in the mid to late 80s. I never skated, but I liked the boys who did. I lived in the country, so never got to hang around the neighborhood much to see the skaters doing their thing... but I remember that the Bones Brigade was everywhere. Boys carrying their boards at school, the stickers, the t-shirts they wore, Thrasher magazines being read in class or at lunch... it was a thing and it was rad.
The boy I liked was a skater, and his favorite BB member was Lance Mountain. He wore Lance's t-shirt all the time and doodled the graphics from Lance's board on my notebook (I still have it, 29 years later). Once we started dating, we often drove the 90 minutes to go hang out in San Francisco at his aunt's apartment, and he skated all over - I marveled at how fast he'd skate down the street, no pads, no nothing, braving the corners and the cars. I was so impressed.
This has become one of my favorite documentaries - it brought me right back to those 80s high school days, where things seemed more innocent and fun. Thank you, Stacy and crew, for such an enjoyable, nostalgic, fascinating, and uplifting film.— Kerrie
From mid 80's The Bones Brigade played a big part of growth and development of Skateboarding in South Africa. The stoke lives on and Chin is alive and well! If you ever in the hood - come sk8 - https://www.facebook.com/groups/722609227816516/— Eben Combrinck
I absolutely love the documentary. Even though I'm not a big skate boarder, I get captivated just watching these amazing things that's the kids do. I was a kid of the 80's and I remember just watching my brother and his friends skateboard. I watched for hours. Watching this just brings back all those memories. The only thing I want to know is, " when's the movie"? This would make one hella of movie. To tell the tell of these six amazing athletes, would be mind blowing. If this does happen to cross Stacy, all I have to say is,"please think about it". Loved it, thanks.— Gena “G” Long
Listening to the emotion and passion of my childhood idols is almost as life changing as when I first saw them skate. Now as an adult, to know these different personalities are so like myself gives all us lost children a sense of belonging. These embodiments of our dreams, adorning the walls of our youth, are the family we longed for but never met. This movie is Thanksgiving dinner with the childhood friends you lost touch with, but always remained in your heart. Trading the stories of their journeys, and how skateboarding will always be home, they put to words the love that unites us all.— Edward “Double-d” Day, none
Watching this brought back many fond memories, it's hard to believe looking at these guys now that it was so long ago, it seems like yesterday. Watching "The Bones Brigade "videos stirs emotions and feelings from a time past that I sometimes wish I could live again. Seeing Hawk and Hosoi shredding and so many great skaters at the Torquay "ramp riot ' in 1987 was insane.
Skater for life— Rod “Rodders” Waterhouse
If you're wondering whether you know enough about skateboarding to watch this film, you do. This is a film about skateboarding but it's also much more. It's about creativity, competition, and the drive to excel. It's about a group of extraordinary individuals, and they're very inspiring. Rodney Mullen especially is just magnetic on the screen, I can't take my eyes off of him. I think at this point I've seen this more than any other documentary film, and I enjoy it still every viewing.
It's not a bad idea to see Dogtown and Z-Boys first for some context, but you could definitely enjoy this film without it.— Rich
I grew up watching and idolizing these guys. The Search For Animal Chin is still the movie I have watched more times than any other movie including normal mainstream movies. We lived skateboarding and I cant wait to see this movie!
Thanks for sharing Darren.— darren dudeck
I remember my first board, my cousin who about 10 yrs older than me and professional skater, got me a Tony Hawk Firefly for my 13th birthday. That day he taught me how to skate in the alley behind my house. Less than a year later I busted the nose off the board trying to ollie up on to a median and metro station. I'll never forget that first board and how devastated I was when I trashed it. Took me another year to save up and by another board - a Rob Roskopp with the giant eyeball on it. I grew up the brigade and can't wait to teach my kid to skate in day. Thanks for the memories and the inspiration!— Brendan “digibomb” Sera-Shriar, Brendan & Brendan
I did not grow up during the time when the bones brigade was big, or anything like that... I can honestly say though that watching this and hearing about how mullen views skateboarding has made me respect him and the rest of the brigade as well, heck I mostly do freestyle because of mullen! This doc is absolutely great and essential for anyone who is a fan of skateboarding to watch...— Storm
the bones brigade pushed me to do better vert tricks they are awesome— glenn “glenn caseley” caseley
I remember when i first started skating in east vancouver in the early to mid eighties, iam 42 yrs young today nov 15 2013, i loved skating and the feeling of the ride on street and in the bowls in east van and north van, and with jaks halfpipe ramp they had in the yard, lol man i also was able to meet and see the team when expo 86 came to vancouver and all the guys went skating at the bowls!! awesome man!!! keep on keeping on yo !!!— ken “rezman” smith, isets
I just re-lived my childhood ! Stacy, the movie was awesome!
I was 15 in '85 and rode a Mike McGill board - so heavy! Good memories of learning ollies and kickflips from future primitive. Skating was salvation from utter boredom and Animal Chin changed everything. Loved this experience, now if I could only be 15 again. xo— J

I am 20 n I still don't know how to ride a skateboard....but I will learn it...n that's for sure....not for some professional thing but just for FUN. .how you guys did it....— Karan
As they say ..."There is no age for learning..."
Love you guys....
WOW! I grew up with the bones brigade, got my first big board in 83 and I'm still sk8ing today. Even though my favorite sk8er was Natas, the bones brigade made a huge impact on my life, specially videos like ban this or public domain. I still love to do all the old tricks. I'm from York, Pa. and when I make it out to Ca. I hope I can find you guys somewhere...— gantz
I was so exited to see you guys when I move from France to Tokyo Japan in 1989 coz the only thing I could do that time was skating. I couldn't speak Japanese that time . But when you guys came to Tokyo for the Bones Brigade world tour '89 , it have change my life here. Not only coz I was a big fan of the BB but also to skate there where all the radical Japanese skaters were regrouped , my only language was my skills on skate board . One good trick you get a YEAAAAH , but even with a funky painful slam you get it ! Then I got friends and we still friends today ;) still skating (not like that time) , skate helped me to move , to have fun, to make friends , and to speak !! Here in Japan , all my skate friends knows that I was only skating on Bones Brigade boards :)
Well , I wasn't planning to write my life , I wanted to know if the "Bonus Brigade" come also on Bluray :)
