Honestly probably the worst skate video ever. The tour footage is great, and some of the other stuff is cool but it's about a total of 5 minutes of skating. That being said I had it on VHS and bought it again on DVD.

When I was in middle school I went to my girlfriends grandpas, he was like some big shot at some snowboarding place, I forgot which one it was. He had a ton of promo dvd's they gave away to him that he never watched. I had noticed Destroying America and made a comment on it. They thought it would be great to all watch together, I tried to tell them no, but they wouldn't take no for an answer. They were actually laughing and stuff but it was extremely awkward watching this huge titted pornstar in front of them.

Also the nurse without the giant tits was on The Man Show back in the day.

Yeah, besides some funny tour footage, this is a tough watch.

Iíve been obsessed with Asian Goddess lately though.

Own for the 5 minutes of skating. Did appreciate the soundtrack (Danzig , Siouxsie etc). Should have had less movie and more skating. Some gold in the tour section from Willy, Jeremy and Heath.

Somehow convinced my mom to order the gold VHS tape copy for us from CCS. Never watched it with them around. I mean yeah, not enough skating, but the tour demo footage was great and it exposed me to great music at age 11. Heard Danzig, Siouxsie Sioux, Rob Zombie, Bowie, Gin & Juice, and Straight out of Compton for the first time! It also made me really want to skate arcade equipment.

... it also instilled a healthy (unhealthy?) level of distain for rollerbladers in me.

Tony Hawk drinks 40s and smokes cigars. This video rules.

I thought we had made peace with them.

Esther bought this for me from Surfin West in Simi Valley, it sucked. I never shopped there again

I was so psyched when it came out as I was going through a huge Eric Estrada/Canada phase.

I'd get pseudo into random people and he happened to be that guy at the time.

I emailed his fan site and he emailed me back.  Sorry to name drop a LEGEND  8).

Alternative to watching CKY2K back in the day. Gin n Juice Tony Hawk section is classic though

Heath kickflip nose wheelies that stack of televisions. That was pretty cool.

The TV ledge has some really sick Heath tricks.

I don't know how I forgot about the Gonz tricks. That is some quality footage.

Maybe it's nostalgia, but I like this video. It's not a watch before you go skate kind of thing, but it's entertaining. Probably wouldn't get away with putting something like this out these days.
