80's Skateboarding - Day In The Life 2 1988
Somewhere at my parents house possibly lays a VHS tape with skateboarding footage of a friend and myself skating a homemade railslide made out of 2x4's and 2 pieces of PVC coping. I remember tape recording McRad music off of the Powell-Peralta video "Public Domain"....the music from the Rubber Boys segment. I had my boombox outside blasting that while we sessioned our rail. I don't know why I didn't bring the video camera out more (probably because it was my Dad's really expensive camcorder and it was HUGE) Oh yeah, now I remember why I didn't take it out often, you actually had to bring the VCR with you thus having to disconnect it from the TV and all. I should have asked my Dad to film us....I guess I just never thought I'd be where I am now reminiscing about days long gone. I hope the little footage I took then didn't get taped over or ruined somehow. :(
Anyhow, since I don't have my own footage from back then to look at now, I find myself searching YouTube for other people's old skate footage from the 80s. I have found a lot of good stuff...here is one of them I'd like to share with you all today...enjoy!
