"Jumping the Channel" A Skateboard Documentary... 07/15/2019

Only took 39 years to locate who the pgotographer was. He reached out online this past December of 2018. In 2001 we started discussions about producing a short film with Professional Skateboarder Don Hamilton. Stacy Peralta also mentioned it to Don over 10 years ago. Here we are 18 years into the future from those discussions with the content we'd been searching for. A short documentary film 📷:-) Speacial thanks to Don Hamilton and Anthony Nex. Only took 14 days to edit. :-)

Skateboard Sense movie 1975 with Don Hamilton 07/07/2019

So it was Don Hamiltons' skateboard moves as seen in this 1975 film of Hamilton, produced by Sid Davis. This would influence an entire nation of school kids to skate like this, one of the first low to the ground, millions of school kids watching in 1975?. Davis, a shock value educational film producer distributed his films nationwide from the the 1950's, 60's and 70's to our public school system for three decades. Millions of kids would be watching in class. This is a great historical document. Hamilton was the 1975 Hang Ten Team Captain, comepeted with Tony Alva, Stacy Peralta, and Ty Page on ABC's Wide World of Sports. :-)

In 1979 two of the most influencial skateboard photographers, William Sharp and Glen E Friedman (as you can see standing on deck upper left) stood by with their camera's by their side (in protest of Don Hamilton not being from Dogtown?) while he landed one of the biggest stunts in skateboard history? You can see them both standing there in awe as Don lands the trick in the heart of Dogtown. Anthony Nex took the photo sequence, as he tells it, -"both Sharp and Friedman were laughing at me" for jumping down into the channel as he captured one of the biggest stunts in skatebord history at the time. Don's stunt of "jumping the channel" at the Marina skatepark in 1979 during a contest promoted by Vans was swept under the rug and never published as they promoted the skateboarders of Dogtown rather than the Skateboarders of skateboarding? Interesting annalogy? One wonders why Sharp, Friedman and Vans did not approach Don for a feature in the mags and future sponsorship from Vans? The photograph sequence changes skateboard history in 2019 some 40 years later. Would this photo sequence qualify Don for Induction in the Skateboarding Hall of Fame? No big deal, nothing to see here. We Know our History! :-)


Opening day Glendale Skatepark. Mr Paul Bushnell with the City of Glendale Mayor Bob Yousefian. We were there in support of the skatepark and skateboarding while insuring that the City had the record straight. The Boogie Bowl Skatepark was the Cities first skatepark back in 1977. We corrected the record. God Speed Paul. Thank you for the Ride.

Hi everyone, some news came in from the Bushnell Family builders/owners of the Boogie Bowl Skate Park. Sad to inform that Boogie Bowl skatepark Designer/Creator/Artist Paul Bushnell has been diagnosed with stage four cancer and is at home in hospice care. He is still pretty coherent, it would make him smile to read anything from all of us. Share the love, the pics, the stories. My favorite is the "Clogged Toilet". getting rides home from Paul in the station wagon at 11pm exactly, on Saturday nights after a rad all day/night skate session just in time to watch SNL and Mr. Bill. Love it :-)


Sorry to inform that original Boogie Bowl team rider Eric Wing has passed away, RIP Eric and condolences to his family.
