Habitat Mosaic Skateboarding DVD Video Review
I think when the video Photosynthesis from Habitat came out I was in awe from the creativity and great skateboarding I saw. I knew instantly that the next video that Habitat did would have a chance to be amazing, maybe even better than Photosynthesis. Then Mosaic came out. You'll notice that the editing and filming ideas used are very artistic and you'll also notice you don't see this stuff anywhere else. Read this review of the Habitat Mosaic Skateboarding DVD Video for more!

Skateboard Party DVD Review - Red Dragons Skateboarding Video 2
Skateboard Party is a collection of skate footage from the 2004 Red Dragons (RDS) skate tour, plus some extra. Skateboard Party is the second skateboarding video from RDS. The first video, titled "Red Dragons", was a mix of skateboarding clips and wild party scenes featuring a monsterous number of famous pro skaters and other people. Skateboard Party has some of hte same feel and fun, but follows the path of the usual skateboarding videos in having segments featuring team riders.

Planes Trains & Skateboards - World Cup Skateboarding 2004 Video Review
Planes Trains & Skateboards follows the World Cup Skateboarding circuit throughout 2004. Different from any other skateboarding video I've seen, Planes Trains and Skateboards feels half like a skate team tour video and half like a skateboarding documentary. The footage is crisp and well organized, mixed with great music, and sprinkled with great pro skater commentary. If you are interested at all in pro skating, Planes Trains & Skateboards is a video you will want to have. Read this review.

BlackLabel has come through with a hit on there newest video, "Wait for the Blackout". The BlackLabel team has a very unique style of skating, which is often overlooked. "Wait for the Blackout" features some of the best rising skateboarders of the new age and a really cool selection of tunes.

Read this Blacklabel Blackout review for more info on this great new skateboarding video, available on DVD or VHS.

That's Life Flick
The Foundation team pushes the limits with the That's Life Flick, showing what street skating can look like. They hit everything in sight, hard and fast - not just rails and gaps, but everything. It's a good skate video with a lot of variety. Read this review.

TotalVid Action Sports Download Site Review
TotalVid is a video downloading site that offers skateboard video downloads, along with BMX, Inline, Mountain Biking, Skiing, Snowboarding, Surfing, Wakeboarding, Wind & Kite Surfing, and other non-sport "extreme life" videos. These videos are incredibly cheap to download, and if you download from the link offered in this review, your first download is half off! Read the review to find out more.

American Misfits Video Review
The American Misfits video is a random pile of skits, skateboarding and whatever else Jason "Wee Man" Acuna and Laban Pheidias could think to film. Sort of similar to the CKY videos, only raunchier and less funny, the American Misfits video is a disappointment. Still, the American Misfits video has more skateboarding than Jackass, and more turd eating and nudity than the CKY videos, so for someone out there this is just the video you've been searching for. Read this review for more details.

The Logic Video #6 Review
Logic 6 is the sixth video put out by Logic video magazine, with lots of street skating. The riders in it are all really good and transitions and rails. The video came out in 2000 and logic has made 7 more videos since. I got the movie off of totalvid.com and it was pretty good.

Public Domain - The Bones Brigade Video IV Review
The Public Domain DVD is the fourth in the Bones Brigade video series. It’s a bizarre, eclectic collage of skate footage, and boasts one of the largest collections of big name skaters in a team video. First available in 1988, Public Domain rocked the skate scene and raised the bar with its 60 minuets of tricks, crashes, interviews, and randomness. This new Public Domain DVD version has all the original old school footage, plus a little extra.

The Search for Animal Chin DVD Review
This film is the classic of classics. When Animal Chin, the master of skateboarding, goes missing, the Bones Brigade (Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerrero, Tony Hawk, Mike McGill and Lance Mountain) go on a search for him. The story is simple and fun, and it's obvious that the team had a lot of fun making it. The video is a must see for anyone who cares about skating - it's different from the skate videos of today, more low, simple, and fun. It's a cheap 80s skate film, yes - but it's the BEST.

Future Primitive - The Bones Brigade Video II Review
This is the second of the legendary Bones Brigade Videos – now available on DVD. The first video caught viewers up on what had been going on in the world of skating, and Future Primitive continues the story. Full of some of the top names in skateboarding today (Tony Hawk, Rodney Mullen, Lance Mountain…), Future Primitive shows how they developed, how they competed, and how they had a great time skating.

Powell Peralta The Bones Brigade Video Show DVD
The Bones Brigade Video Show was the first real skateboarding video made - and now it's available on DVD. in the early 80's, skateboarding was comming out of a dark age. Powell and Peralta teamed up to form the Bones Brigade team with members like Tony Hawk and Rodney Mullen.

The Bones Brigade Video Show Review (Powell Peralta)
From 1979 to 1983, skateboarding went though its first “dark age”. Popularity plunged, and most skaters ditched the sport. In the early 80’s, skateboarding began to boom, and Stacey Peralta put together the first of the famous Bones Brigade videos – The Bones Brigade Video Show. It’s definitely old school, and definitely rad. Packed with low riding & sliding action, pink shirts, high shorts and the best original skateboarding soundtrack ever. Now available on DVD - read the review for more!

Globe Opinion: Skate Video
The Opinion: skateboarding video is a great skate film, featuring Rodney Mullen, Chet Thomas, Gershon Mosley, Danny Gonzalez, Matt Mumford, Chad Fernandez, Jayme Fortune, Ben Pappas, Renton Millar, Mike Peterson, and Ryan Kenreich. Opinion: is packed with awesome skating - not just from Rodney Mullen, but the other skaters are incredible as well. The DVD comes packed with other extras as well.

The third Bones Brigade video, The Search for Animal Chin is a fun 80s skateboarding film that documents the Bones Brigade (Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerrero, Tony Hawk, Mike McGill and Lance Mountain) as they search for the legendary skateboarding master, Won Ton Animal Chin.

The DC Video - Deluxe Edition DVD
The DC Video Deluxe Edition is a huge improvement on a video that was already one of hte best skate videos made. With all the footage of pros like Danny Way, Colin McKay, Rob Dyrdek, Josh Kalis, Stevie Williams, Anthony Van Engelen and Brian Wenning, but with additional bonus footage and a sweet booklet full of photos, interviews, and behind the scenes info - the Deluxe Edition is well worth it.

Nitro Circus the Movie 3D Review
Nitro Circus the Movie 3D Review - I just watched the Nitro Circus movie in 3D DVD with my brother and 11 year old nephew, and it was amazing! Like I love boards, my brother loves dirt and motors. While Nitro Circus doesn't have very much skateboarding in it (only like 2 quick stunts), it does feature a lot of very funny and insightful...
