Archives- San Francisco Skate Footage

In the late 90s and early 2000s I filmed skateboarding in San Francisco on almost a daily basis for companies like Thrasher, Transworld, 411VM and many others, and every evening, after a long day of filming, I would go through and log the footage and add edit onto VHS tapes so I could watch the footage over and over without wearing out the HI8 tapes (remember analog?).

I’ve been slowly going through these VHS tapes and posting some of the footage up on YouTube.com/c/JohnTrippe/ - There are some gems in there highlighting a time and place in San Francisco’s skate scene.
