Links on Friday – Skateboarding

The Search For Animal Chin is the pinnacle of 80s Skateboard films, all frosted hair and totally tubular dialogue – there’s even a ‘making of’ doco. Bonus awesome: Johnny Rad.

Kids today do it differently of course – according to this this Spike Jonez clip, Skating today is all in slow motion with explosions and that? You wouldn’t get very fit that way.

I’m impressed by the world’s biggest ramp, but seeing the Grange Hill kids skate, though, is the raddest thing I’ve ever seen. Bless.
