Found in a Box VHS Skate Theater is a brand new feature on Skate and Annoy. The format of future episodes is bound to change as the kinks get worked out.
Radical Moves was released in 1986. It’s basically an extended contest video of the 1986 World Expo in Vancouver, BC, presented as a drama. The total run time is 87 minutes, but Part 1 is only about a half an hour. The footage is presented pretty much intact, but you’ll have to endure the occasional surprise interruptions. Highlights in Part 1 include Jeff Phillips playing himself briefly as a character in the movie, Dave Crabb entering all 6 contests ( Hal Pipe, Bowl, Freestyle, High Jump, 360’s…), Bob Pribble getting denied entrance, character evaluations of skater disciplines by Russ Howell, and the narrator ogling a female Swedish freestyler named Gogo Sprelter. Admittedly, this episode is a little heavy on Freestyle, but that’s just the order it was presented in the original. If you’re interested, there’s a real life accounting of this World Expo from a German contestant on sk8boarding4life.com.
Here’s an image showing the front and back cover of the VHS box, originally a Blockbuster rental, and later purchased on Ebay.
Here’s a 1986 print ad for the movie that appeared in the December 1986 issue of Transworld Skateboarding, and possibly other magazines as well.
