BAKERSFIELD

Peralta: There was a rider on our team named Chris Borst. He had a ramp and we said, “Hey, can we do a sequence here?” He said, “Yeah, my dad’s cool with it. He’ll cook food, and you guys can have as many people as you want here.” The idea was to create this situation that just looked like kids were skating and partying all day long. So that other kids around the world could say, “Wow, we can make a scene like that in our neighborhood.”

 

My 11-year-old son said, 'What’s that video you’re in dad? What is that, that crazy ramp and all? You never showed me that.' And I said, 'I didn’t know you wanted to see any of that.' Seeing it stirred up a lot of good memories, but also some difficult memories of guys like Ray Underhill. We were all a pretty close-knit group, and Ray passed away about four years ago.

McGill: I hadn’t seen Animal Chin for a few years 'till I’d seen the Bones Brigade Documentary, and my 11-year-old son said, “What’s that video you’re in dad? What is that, that crazy ramp and all? You never showed me that.” And I said, “I didn’t know you wanted to see any of that.” Seeing it stirred up a lot of good memories, but also some difficult memories of guys like Ray Underhill. We were all a pretty  close-knit group, and Ray passed away about four years ago and never got to see any of the later-on stuff that all of us are doing. It was difficult to see some of that stuff.

That was Ray’s scene. Anytime any of us hurt ourselves we were like, “Ray I got shit going on right now man. I don’t know what’s going on.” [Laughs.] That was his famous quote there. I don’t where these guys get ’em.

Hawk: Ray would do more subtlety, and that’s kind of what Stacy was going for. He wanted to highlight everyone’s personality, so as soon as he heard Ray say something like that, he’s like, “Ray, we’re gonna make a scene like that just for you.” I thought it was funny, but at the same time, it didn’t seem that far-fetched to me.
