VANS presents the PHXAM premier of Bones Brigade: An Autobiography. The Bones Brigade was a talented gang of teenage outcasts. Unmotivated by fame or popularity, they completely dedicated their lives to a disrespected art form. For most of the 1980s, this misfit crew headed by a 1970s ex-skateboard champion blasted the industry with a mixture of art and raw talent becoming the most popular skateboarding team in history. The core unit of the Bones Brigade built an empire that covered the world. They dominated contests, made hundreds of thousands of dollars, created the modern skateboard video, reinvented endemic advertising, pushed skate progression into a new era, and set the stage for a totally new form of skating called street style. There's nothing comparable in today's skateboarding. 90 minutes. Directed by Stacy Peralta.
"Skateboarding has nothing to do with competition or sport. It has to do with trying to stay as immature as you can for the rest of your life."
"The prize money for first [place] at a pro contest was $150. But I was fourteen years old; sign me up! I'm going to buy a Moped!"
