Lost In Transition is a full length skateboard video, featuring footage from 1984-1991. This video represents the back yard ramp scene of the South, an untold story in the history of skateboarding. We will be sharing with you five parts in the next few weeks, stay tuned.Featuring full sections from The 1988 Underground Skatepark NSA Contest, The Ramp Ranch, The Garden Ramp, The Skatezone bowl in Atlanta, and The Charleston Hanger in South Carolina both built by legendary skatepark builder Tim Payne.
Lost in Transition: The Ranch Ramp
Thomas Taylor was a hot shoe in the early '80s. He was lucky enough to have a video camera and documented some of the best skating in the South. RIP Blaize Blouin.
Lost in Transition: The Band X Pool
Empty pools are a priceless skate treasure. Throughout California and the Southwest, pool skating has a rich history but this edit of vintage footage shows that the South had their own thriving scene of deep pits.
Lost in Transition: Skatezone
This bowl is just too epic. Thomas Taylor brings us into the past and into The Zone.
Lost in Transition: Charleston Hanger
In its day, this dynamic bowl was one of the sickest on the East Coast (or anywhere for that matter). It saw some serious sessions, including a few names you'll recognize here.
Lost in Transition: Blaize Blouin
All you tranny dogs take note; It's not the tricks, it's how you do 'em. Blaize Blouin did 'em right. One foot Andrechts. RIP IN PEACE. -Jake Phelps
