It’s been 30 years since the members of the Bones Brigade gathered to skate together on the Chin Ramp. This insightful and video piece includes interviews with the guys that original Chin Ramp builder Tim Payne, photographer Grant Brittain, and several very well known pro skaters whom were hugely impacted by the video and its subliminal messages decades ago. Watch your favorite skaters rip the Chin Ramp again right here and now. The search for Animal Chin continues.
With Powell Peralta’s renowned 1986 film, “The Search For Animal Chin”, it was the Chin Ramp that stole the show. The Chin Ramp was unfathomable in size and had just about every element from large extensions, larger channels, a mini ramp on the deck, a verticle spine and a tunnel. Built by Tim Payne, the Bones Bridage had just 3 days to skate the ramp before it was gone forever. Now 30 years later Tim Payne and the Brigade cite their personal experiences with the ramp and the amazing times they had together skating and shooting for this iconic film.
This episode is so big it had to get split into two parts… it’s basically a mini documentary about the history of trucks – John Lucero, Lance Mountain, Joey Tershay, Tony Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Allen Losi, Steve Olson, Sam Hitz, Rick Blackhart and others discuss how truck companies have shaped skateboarding from the beginning.
