In 1986, legendary skate crew the Bones Brigade — which featured Lance Mountain, Tony Hawk, Tommy Guerrero, Mike McGill and Steve Caballero — traveled to Oceanside, California to skate a monster of a ramp. Their journey was documented in the iconic Powell Peralta film The Search for Animal Chin, and later inspired an entire generation of skaters.

In the video piece above, the team recreates some of the film’s original scenes, while discussing their experience three decades ago.
