“Lost In Translation” DVD

“Lost In Transition” is the untold story of backyard ramps and pools in the south, and the role they played keeping skatingboarding alive at a time when its fate was uncertain. These ramps and backyard scenes represent the beginning of the DIY revolution that gave skateboarding the freedom it needed to survive.

The footage in this film was all filmed between the years of 1982 and 1992, documenting the gap between the fall of vert skating and the rise of street. The video includes full sections from the 1988 Underground Skatepark NSA Contest, the Ramp Ranch, the Garden Ramp and much more. Order your copy by clicking here.
