Trying to keep up with @skybrown at my “home gym” this morning. She generously donated an auction item for @tonyhawkfoundation after we skated... details on that next week.

I’ve watched @buckylasek constantly evolve his style over the last 30+ years, bringing some of the hardest technical tricks to the vertical realm and quietly dominating pool events in recent times. When dividing up skaters into competitive categories - pro / masters / legends - Bucky is the unicorn because he is any and all of those. It’s inspiring to see him still pushing the limits every time we skate together. The other day was no exception: switch backside boneless on vert. I can’t begin to explain the level of difficulty on this trick, even though there is only a finite audience that will ever appreciate it. Watch his YouTube channel to get a glimpse of what went into this, and you might understand what I’m trying to convey here. He even inspired me to drop in switch this day. Truly next level; 47 years young

My clips from the very first Bones Brigade video called “Skateboarding in the Eighties.” The year was 1981 and @peraltastacy came to Del Mar with a bulky videocamera (and a “compact” Super 8, shown here) to film some skating. I quickly realized that this was an opportunity to try tricks that I was just learning or ones that I couldn’t do consistently in competition. Very few people had VCR’s at that time so I had no idea where it would be seen, but I wanted to impress Stacy nonetheless. I had no idea that he was starting a revolution with this test project, but I felt very fortunate to that his lens would be pointed in my direction regularly for the next ten years. 🎶: Ultravox - “All Stood Still”

That time @aaronjawshomoki and I “skated” in a @gozerog parabolic flight. I liked partial gravity better than zero gravity by the end of it, since you knew which was was up. We laughed until we cried... and then Jaws puked. 🛹🚀🤮

It took over 30 years but I found my way back to @vans, the original skate shoe. My sincerest thanks to Lakai for all of the unforgettable revs over the last few years. I remember my first pair of Vans that I incessantly bugged my dad for at age 11, and then eventually convinced him to buy the “ankle guard” accessory (before high tops existed). I wore them until I literally burned through to my toenails doing kneeslides... and then applied duct tape just to wear them some more. I continued to wear the brand in my formative years (which are well documented), including being the odd-man-out in Search For Chin as everyone else wore Jordans. Thanks to Vans for keeping the core of skating alive through the decades by way of team projects, Grosso’s Love Letters, groundbreaking videos, stellar events, legacy skateparks and [most recently] “Foot The Bill” program benefiting struggling skate shops. Here’s to combining our resources and helping to grow skateboarding most authentically for future generations to enjoy. @vansskate 🏁🛹 🎥: @huntfilmwork 📷: @jgrantbrittain / @burnout

As a fan of @deathworldwide & @roughfrancis it was an honor to collaborate with Urian Hackney on a song, since our families are so musically inclined. He suggested Damned’s “Smash It Up (part 2)” and away we went. Thanks to Urian for doing all the heavy lifting (mixing, editing, cheerleading, etc) on this coast-to-coast collab, and to our kids for being patient as I am the least talented musician in this family (also for teaching me to use the most basic functions of GarageBand). I hope this brings a smile to your face in these uncertain times. Featured players / skaters (in order): @calvinino @urian_v_hackney @keeganhawk @hackneystylee @bobbyhackneyjr Kady Hawk, Rose Hackney, @rileyhawk @milesgizmo (SoundCloud link is Urian’s bio)

It was a blast hosting @felipenunesskate on his recent trip to California. He literally got off the plane, set up a new board and went straight to Vista skatepark and did this #firingline (shot by @tweestopher). We are proud to have him as official member of the @birdhouseskateboards team; you’ll be seeing much more of his incredible talents soon.

in 1985, I was invited to do a television show in Japan that featured talented kids. I was 16 and it was my first time traveling alone; the whole trip was surreal and intimidating, but it began my love of Japanese culture that continues to this day. The producers asked me to lie about my age (!) because the show only featured kids under 16 and change the name of the tricks I would demonstrate to make them more “Japanese friendly.” Skate trick names were already silly and theirs were even sillier, but I played along while holding back laughter each time. Swipe for a full run on the LITERAL half-pipe (no flat), and the intro sequence to the show. Thanks to @studiofishi for reminding me of this! Gonna go practice Monkey Back Drops now.

I had the privilege of touring the world with my good friend #rayunderhill 30 years ago. Growing up as outcast skaters, everything was wild and weird to us; we didn’t truly appreciate the diversity and culture that we were so lucky to experience back then. This week, I had the privilege of traveling with his daughter Olivia (and a few of our kids) and got to see the same sense of wonder in her eyes as we journeyed around Paris during #vansparkseries. It made me thankful to come this far and still be traveling the globe all because of a wooden plank with four wheels, but mostly it made me appreciate sharing the multiplicity of Europe and informed perspectives to a younger generation. Traveling is a great form of education.... get out there if you can. 📷: me (1989 / 2019)

Promo video loop I made in 1996 for the @birdhouseskateboards booth at ASR (remember ASR?!?!). The intro logo animation was probably the pinnacle of my Lightwave 3D career.

Thanks @michaelspierig for these clips from our 1999 Adio tour in Australia. The touring years of 1992-2002 were the most exhausting for me because it each stop would include a street/park demo immediately followed by a vert demo (if the park / shop/ town had a ramp)... and I was usually the only one that rode both; blood, sweat and varial flips.

1990 Bones Brigade tour footage from Tasmania (my first & only trip there) with @buckylasek & @frankiehill1. It was an evolutionary time in skateboarding; the general popularity was waning, street skating was emerging and vert was still progressing but garnered little appreciation. We still couldn’t escape jump ramps though. Of note: Frankie’s kf mute and 540’s galore. Thanks to Jason Carter (?) for the upload & appropriate soundtrack. 🎶: @thecure - “Torture”

Intro sequence - using everything I learned in Lightwave 3D at the time - from @birdhouseskateboards “Untitled” (1993) featuring plenty of NBD’s from Mike Frazier. Seeing all this evolution in hardcore vert - which is still happening - makes me realize that the focus on park skating lately outshines this progression. I appreciate the abundance of events and the dedication it takes to skate all terrain, but it’s still a shame you won’t see tricks nearly this difficult (or technical) in the upcoming Olympics. 🎶: @pixiesofficial - “Something Against You”

These clips (and @rileyhawk cameos!) from the @birdhouseskateboards video “Unitlted” (1993) were the very last for my waning 90’s street career.
