Best Skate Videos of All Time

Updated on October 18, 2014

Must See Skateboard Movies

If you grew up riding skateboards like I did, you probably have fond memories of the dozens, or even hundreds of skate videos that inspired you.

Maybe you still have a box, hidden in the garage or buried at the back of a closet, filled with old VHS tapes of skate videos.

Let's take a look back at some of the best skate videos of the last 3 decades, from the ground-breaking Bones Brigade movies of the 80's to more recent films such as the Spike Jonze masterpiece, "Fully Flared".

Bones Brigade Video Show (1984) - Powell Peralta

Powell Peralta's Bones Brigade videos are legendary. The first of the famous Bones Brigade Videos, "Bones Brigade Video Show" set the tone for what a skate video should be for years to come. It's fun, it doesn't take itself too seriously, the skating is amazing and it's no wonder that when we watched it as kids we wanted to be a part of skateboarding.

H-Street Skateboards

Formed in 1986 by Mike Ternasky and pro skateboarder Tony Mag, H-Street has got to be one of the most under-appreciated skateboard companies of all time. The second H-Street video,"Hokus Pokus" is arguably one of the most influential skate videos of all time.

The first time I saw this video it completely changed the way I thought about skateboarding. It features Matt Hensley, Sal Barbier, Danny Way, Eddie Elguera, Donger, John The Man Reeves, Ron Allen, Ton Magnusson, Alphonzo Rawls, Colby Carter, and Brian Lotti.
