The call of "Skate and Destroy" has been the skaters battle-cry for a long time. A hell of a long time. Thrasher's appropriately titled flick delves into this annihilating theory of skateboarding with a 30 minute look at wrecking stuff via skateboard.

We're treated to a variety of run-ins with cops, security and property owners, but the core of this flick - as always - is endless montages of amazing skating. Diversity of terrain is also a Thrasher hallmark. You get a good mix of street, pools and ramps & parks.

Music for this video venture came from a number of unlikely sources. One piece came from a street performer. Cool - no royalty payments.

With an insane number of skaters, this disc flys by and you'll want to watch it again after your bud's sister denies your ill-intending advances (try her Mom - Mom's are often way freaky).
