Ray Barbee in Ban This

Joe Coward

Ray Barbee’s part in Powell Peralta’s  1989 video “Ban This” is a legendary one. He skates down the street doing trick after trick, a lot of it is on flatland but unlike his freestyle predecessors he manages to make it flow and look natural – like he’s just doing it on- the way over to a friends house. The description in this video link says “Poetry in motion” and I couldn’t agree more.
