The Tenth Street Bros are Bill and George Bryan - two skimboarders who have seen and done it all. The two grew up at Victoria Beach during the birth of skimboard wave riding, learning from pioneers Chris Hendersen, Tex Haines, and Kurt Westguaard. As teenagers they moved to 10th Street in South Laguna during its heyday. Here, they began recording their skimboarding as a means to watch the footage and improve their skimboarding. Riding the buzz of their first film, Soulag (a movie made on two VCR's in George's bedroom), they decided to step up their production and dropped The Bomb. The Bomb attracted national attention within the board sport community and also aired on many major networks. The Bomb showed the best skimboarders, waves, and camerawork at the time. The bomb squad showed the world the possibilities of skimboarding the large waves found in Cabo San Lucas and Wedge. It would later prove to be the blue print for all skimboard films to follow. The films hysteria incited a riot in fact, during it's Laguna Beach premier. Perhaps most unique to The Bomb, beside the skimboarding, was the presence of the eclectic South Laguna lifestyle. The Tenth Street Bros made being a skimboarder look like so much fun! Through the years, the Tenth Street Bros and friends have continued their role as the rebellious, fun loving crew. Instead of dumping money they did not have to keep up with technology, they have focused on getting people's attention through shock, spontaneity, and plain old fun. These were guys you wanted to hang out with; and you knew you could if you saw them at the beach. The Tenth Street Bros can be credited for getting more people hyped on skimboarding than anyone on this planet. There are countless stories of guys like Grady Archbold or Austin Keen, who didn't start skimboarding until they watched a Tenth Street Bros movie. That leads us to perhaps the most ironic thing about their 2011 release, BTV. The first skimboard movie seen by everyone in the film was a Tenth Street Bros film. The student is now the teacher. Upon acknowledging this fact, and the importance of their films, the brothers are letting the riders become completely involved in this year's production. Helping them choose their songs, clips, or get involved in whatever way they want. What we found out is that every rider approaches skimboarding with a different vibe. So the best way to learn more about the worlds best skimboarders, is to take a look at BTV - Bringing The Vibes.
