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.
