Thrasher Magazine looked deep in the archives to find Tommy Guerrero’s “Ban This” part. This Powell Peralta video was released in 1989 and features a young Guerrero, who flaunted a “End Racism” imprint on his cursor board, which was already known for his affiliation with the Bones Brigade.
This video is split into two segments; a vert halfpipe session and then a street session through the streets of San Francisco. It’s only right that the video follows Guerrero throw San Francisco as he is a local.
Guerrero throws down on the halfpipe from 0:50 to 1:15. Watch to see him do a blunt stall, smiths, and much more.
If you haven’t seen “Ban This,” or even simply want to rewatch it, head over to the Powell-Peralta website where it is available for download. “Ban This” is a perfectly preserved piece of skateboarding history, you need to watch it.
