Tony Hawk’s Loop of Death – Slams, Attempts and Makes – Full Edit 2013

Ok so this footage is from 2013 – that said it features Tony Hawk – who is pretty much deemed “old school” these days with him hitting his mid 40s this week

Also doing the loop is definitely an old school skateboarding trick – in fact Duane Peters did it 10 years before Tony h did (if you look closely you can spot Duane giving advice in this footage)

as always leave comments

2013 Full Edit. Steve Caballero, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki, Josh Stafford, Alex Perleson, Tom Schaar, Mike McGill, Corbin Harris, Owen Neider, Tyler Martin, Tony Magnusson, and Keegan Hawk give the loop a try.

Houston TX 1986 NSA 1 Pro JAM 2 of 4

After the collapse of the skatepark in the late 70s early 80s the focus for vert skating was half pipes. What was left of the industry at the time encouraged kids to build their own half pipes and to hold their own contests. Some of the most exciting skate contests in the Mid 80s came out of Texas. Check this old school footage from the NSA Pro Jam of 1986 with Jeff Phillips killing it

Skateboard Sense – Shredding 1970′s Style

1970′s skateboarding film – tons of campy skate footage from the early 70′s – funny and slightly goofy narration and host.
