Lost In Transition is a full length skateboard video, featuring footage from 1984-1991. This video represents the back yard ramp scene of the South, an untold story in the history of skateboarding. Featuring a time period accurate soundtrack, this is a skate video lost in time.
Ok so this is new school skating but it is on banks and bowls so it kind of falls into the old school category.
Some out of this world skating on this one – amazing
Vans doesn’t mess around when it comes to throwing a contest and the 2013 Vans US Open will go down in history as not only one of the best, but the event where the new generation of bowl rippers really took control. From Greyson’s psycho float to Raven’s Rube-a-Dube to Hatchell’s trick wizardry, this was one of the wildest finals we’ve ever seen. And Raney’s transfer? Just wait!
1. Ben Hatchell
2. Greyson Fletcher

Found this old school Super 8mm skateboard footage on youtube today. Seems like it has to be late 70s at a guess. A bunch of locals sessioning a rough street 1/4 pipe – those were the days! Good times
If anyone has any further info on this footage – please let us know
1976 Parker Pool and River Oaks Pool Skateboarding
Bucky Lasek: Riding Backyard Pools
Parker Pool and River Oaks pool in 1976. Both located in Houston, TX.
Parker Pool is a city owned pool that would close in the fall and was drained. That’s where we came in! There were several pools of the same design around the city that we would infiltrate, while keeping an eye out for the authorities. This was the early stages of pool riding. A year later we were riding all the way to the top grinding coping and even doing airs.
River Oaks Pool was on the property of an abandoned mansion in River Oaks. It had nice mellow transitions and you could pump the walls and keep going until your legs turned to rubber.
Buacky Lasek just turned 40 and has been killing it in all the pro contests lately. Its great to see him take some time out from the pro circuit to shred a backyard pool
