So, I've been brushing up on my skate history lately, and have come across some of the classics, including Santa Cruz "Streets On Fire", Vision "Psycho Skate", and Powell Peralta "Propaganda". I just discovered this documentary about Frankie Hill's position in skating, and how he basically was the missing link of street destroyers between the Gonz and Natas pioneering era, which came after them but before Pat Duffy's epic street shredding. The shit Frankie Hill has done has certainly not been given its due credit. Among the first to hit anything bigger than an 8 set, he went ahead and hit gaps and rails and did flip tricks that would still garner respect today. The documentary was put together by Nate Sherwood; of course we know that dude has sometimes gotten a bad rep due to some crazy ideas and perhaps less than perfect hygiene, but this documentary was pretty entertaining, and really finally gives credit where credit is due. Hail Frankie Hill, a ripper who put together tech and gnar way before the many of us.
