In 2001, legendary early 90s skater Henry Sanchez made a brief but unforgettable comeback, with a part in the Transworld Skateboarding video "Sight Unseen".

"He Skated so slow he actually slowed down time!"
A barley believable scenario has Chris Fissel filming a line for over two decades in a slowed down time vortex created by his slow paced skateboarding. But he pulls it clean with a career reboot after banger bonus, complete with hardcore marketing gimmickry that rhymes.

Jamie Thomas Original "Sponsor Me" Video from early 1993. His first board sponsor, Invisible Skateboards, sponsored him after seeing this footage.

Unused footage from the 2012 Girl/Chocolate Skateboards video "Pretty Sweet"

Featuring Sean Malto, Guy Mariano, Marc Johnson, Eric Koston, Vincent Alvarez, Chico Brenes, Brian Anderson, Brandon Biebel, Kenny Anderson, and many more.

The 1996 East Coast Skate Video "Eastern Exposure 3". The full video in high quality. How many of your skate crews back in the day were inspired to get into night skating after watching this masterpiece?

1986, the year of street plants, the first kick flips on street boards, and the first ollie to board slides on hand rails (though technically no handrails were actually landed on video, Natas attempted one in his Oceanside run). We would have to wait until the following year to see them landed on video.

Skateboarding videos, mainly from the 1990s

Follow us on Odysee:

I have a new channel dedicated to 1980s skateboarding:

So far I have completed 11 videos of my popular month by month video timeline skateboarding history series from 1986-1996. Unfortunately my principal source for accurate month by month dates was the Thrasher Magazine archive, which is only available until early 1997. So in order to continue the project I need help funding the purchase of old skateboard magazines from 1997 onwards. Most of these are available on Ebay and are usually priced around $10-$25 each. So the resources I need to continue each year of the project will typically be about $200-$250 per video.

Any donations you can help with will be greatly appreciated and can be made here:
