Do you remember On Video Magazine? Seriously, if you do, you know exactly what the current generation of skateboarders are missing out on. On Video Magazine was a super well edited set of skateboarding films.

Unfortunately, there were only a few issues made and they’re getting super hard to find around the net. If you’re lucky, your old skate shop just might have one piled underneath an older set of leftover unsold skate videos. By all means, if you can you should get your hands on some of these videos. They were amazingly well done and the skateboarding was always top notch, even in today’s insane growth of trickery and standards.

They always had cool themes and a mind blowing intro to each flick. The music was always different and amazing. And my favorite part was the documentaries that they would do at the end of all of the films. Those would be the “featured” article of each issue. Perhaps one of my favorites would have to be the history behind the “Carlsbad gap” or the entire revolution of skateboarding with Rodney Mullen or Natas Kaupas.
