There are so many fantastic things about this video, i can hardly name them all, but clothing, music, the atmosphere, the people, is a few. For us who lived far away from USA at this time, all we had was some VHS tapes we shared, and sometimes, if we were lucky, someone had cable and we could once in a blue moon see something live from the skateworld. Those tapes were watched til they were no longer usable. Then the gaming world started with Tony Hawk in the very late 90's, and there is no denying that the franchise promoted skating on a world wide basis among people who normally wouldn't be interested, and made it even more popular. And Rodney Mullen has been a part of this as well, a huge part. Watching this video takes me back to those days, cool stuff :)

I highly recommend watching the 2012 doc made by Stacy Peralta, called "Bones Brigade: An Autobiography". Very in depth look at Rodney, as well as the rest of the guys.
Gnarly! :)

#4 Agreed..its a must watch if interested in the topic.

#2 I feel you. Grew up close to that era too. Started serious skateboarding at the early end of the 90'..we had dozens of VHS tapes (everytime we got a new one we got our vhs recorder from our parents together to make copys since we knew from the very first ones that they wont last long)..we stop and repeat..analyse..try and fail..till we got it. Doin the first shoveit or kickflip..what a feeling. And one day Tony Hawk Pro Skater for PS1 came out..only our "rich" friends had a PS..and we played all day and night. Then it started to become a sport..first skatershops opened up (Titus..yaay)..skateparks were build..and skateboards werent kids toys anymore but professional sports equiptment.
Good old times =)
