The writing was on the wall: Guy, Rudy, Paulo, and Gabriel were repping their ‘hood in their “Ban This” section, and they found a clever way to shout out their boys in the intro. In this exclusive extra from Colin Kennedy’s “The L.A. Boys,” we learn about a strange connection the influential Powell-Peralta video has with Lakai’s 2007 “Fully Flared.”
“The L.A. Boys” is available now on iTunes and on the following platforms: Vimeo on Demand (side note: this is the best viewing option for skaters in Europe), Amazon, Google Play, VUDU, Playstation Video, and on Xbox. If you have even the faintest interest in the late-’80s tectonic shift towards what was then known as “street style” skating, you need to see this movie. It will give you goosebumps.
