Showcasing the roots of Aggressive Inline Skating

Hi guys! Welcome to AngryYouthCinema.com

This website is all about showing the hidden treasure in the history of Aggressive inline skating. VHS tapes!

Aggressive Inline skating emmerged in the VHS era.
In these old video’s you can really see the progression of the sport.
The first inline skate video was Dare to Air, made in 1993.
In this video the skaters are still using 72mm recreational skates and they can barely grind. Only a few years later the skaters are doing insane combo’s on REAL aggressive skates!

After Dare to Air, The Hoax series and the Video Groove series came out.
They both had a big influence on our culture because this was the only way skaters got to see the new tricks that were invented by pro’s.
In a world without Youtube and websites, big brands like Senate, Roces and Mindgame made team video’s as their main marketing tool.

#angryyouth is all about showing these roots of our culture.
We do three things:

  • We digitalized all the tapes and we will put them online so that you too can watch them. http://angryyouthcinema.com/index.php/digitalized-vhs-tapes/
  • The physical VHS tapes will be made available for purchase on http://thisissoul.com.
  • And once every month we invite all skate enthusiasts to come together for a screening of one of the tapes and drink beers afterwards.
    Specially for this occasion we created a little cinema and a bar at Distrikt Agency (zeeburgerpad 16, Amsterdam Oost, NL).
