When Brian is sneaking into the WMS warehouse you can clearly see a number of times his skateboard he had throughout the first half of the movie. He then sacrifices the board to blow up the propane tank.
A few scenes later when he is riding in the street with his backpack he has the same skateboard, then breaks the trucks on the police lights. Only then does he replace it for the new black board. See more »

whoa, this is simply the coolest. skate or die man!
It doesn't get any cooler than this. This is the best skate boarding movie ever. There are some really impressive scenes and the movie totally rocks. Its a bit old school now, but so what? It just adds charactor and proves that it doesn't matter how advanced technology gets, they don't make gems like this anymore. yep, they sure as hell don't! Check out Christian Slaters hair! Its awesome. And so's this movie. Heh, Sorry to sound like a air headed boy of 13. The only thing I would ever slamm this movie for was some of the acting. Christian Slater is cool, but there were some weak performances by others. This doesn't effect the movie on bit though! Hey, and it has Tony Hawk in it. The man! Need I say anymore?
2 very enthusiastic thumbs up, 10 out of 10
