Well here is a little treat, Powell Peralta has decided to give away their 1987 film The Search For Animal Chin as a fee download! At the time the film was the benchmark for what skate films should be acting as one of the first skateboarding films to have a "plot".
The Bones Brigade travels around California, Nevada, and Hawaii to different skate spots in search of a wisened old man, Won Ton "Animal" Chin. The movie is of the old-school nomadic, skate-everything-in-your-path genre with interludes of stopping to rip-up a big ramp, pool or kicker. After much searching and skateboarding, they locate a large ramp in the desert. They also find a Chinese character on the inside of the ramp's spine. They conclude that in searching for Mr. Chin, they may have found his spirit.”
