1988 sees the rise of young street skaters, mainly amateurs, trying out many of the tricks invented by freestyle skater Rodney Mullen on street boards for the first time. Tricks like 360 flip (by Steve Ortega), double kickflip (by Ron Allen), kickflip manual (by Ray Barbee), kickflip 50-50 (by both Frankie Hill and Ray Barbee), and kickflips over gaps and stairs (by Frankie Hill) are filmed for the first time.
Meanwhile the competition circuit is still being dominated by the older established pros from the launch ramp era, such as Christian Hosoi and the Bones Brigade.
The 1990 World Industries Promo video of Randy Colvin and Chris "Dune" Pastras titled "Two World Industries Men"
Commentary by Chris Pastras
Here is some rare, unreleased footage of the mysterious Jed Walters who disappeared from the skate scene after his first and only part in the 1992 World Industries video.
In 1991, before Jed Walters moved to Los Angeles and got sponsored by World Industries, he was briefly living in San Diego and sponsored by BBC Skateboards. This is unreleased video footage of Jed that would have appeared in a BBC video if the company had not gone under shortly after.
The style of skating is completely different from the tech style of Jed Walters from 1992. We see big handrails and gaps instead of switch 360 flips, which really shows how well rounded and full of potential Jed was.
I have a new channel dedicated to 1980s skateboarding, will be updating it periodically:
1987: the height of the jump ramp era. The summer of 1987 also saw the first frontside boardslides down handrails by two skaters: Julian Stranger in San Francisco, that would end up in the 1988 video release "Sick Boys" and Mark Gonzalez in the August Savanna Slamma competition. A few months later Gonz films another one in the streets of New York City.
