Monday, October 31st, 2016

 

Thirty years on from the iconic Powell Peralta video ‘The Search For Animal Chin’ the Bones Brigade has regrouped for a very special occasion.

 

Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Lance Mountain, Mike McGill and Tommy Guerrero accompanied by photographer Grant Brittain attended a heavy and nostalgic session on a re-built version of the iconic ‘Chin ramp’ to re-shoot Brittain’s famous four-man invert photo.

 

This really is a brilliant way to celebrate such an influential part of skateboarding history so without further ado, let Tony and the gang put a smile on your face.
