Powell Peralta’s 1986 film, “The Search For Animal Chin”, it was the Chin ramp that stole the show. The Chin Ramp was unfathomable in size and had just about every element from large extensions, larger channels, a mini ramp on the deck, a verticle spine and a tunnel.
Only 3 days to skate before Chin Ramp was gone!
Built by Tim Payne, the Bones Bridage had just 3 days to skate the ramp before it was gone forever. Now 30 years later we hear from Tim Payne and the Brigade about their personal experiences with the ramp and the amazing times they had together skating and shooting for this iconic film.
Veteran builders Nate Wessel, Ron Kimler, Ryan Corrigan and Kris Sherry worked together with one of the most iconic builders of all time, Tim Payne, to re-create the legendary Animal Chin. See what goes down at Woodward West and how a tennis court can be transformed into the newest and most anticipated ramp of all time.
“I think the easiest way to say it is here we are. 30 years later and we’re doing the same thing. We’re building the ramp in secret and here we are like chuckling that nobody knows about it. After 30 years of ramp finally gets built and we’re going to see these guys ride this Ramp again.”
