|WHAT IS THRASHIN'?|
The cast of Thrashin' consists mainly of pretty unknown actors/actresses, but
there are also a few that have become quite famous (not for their part in Thrashin', however),
especially Sherylin Fenn and Josh Brolin.
In this list, each character is described briefly and year of birth and examples of other appearances are given for some of the actors.

Most of the cast have achieved fame for another reason than acting - skateboarding.
Many of the skaters, such as Tony Hawk and
Mike McGill, are from
the original Bones Brigade of the Powell Peralta company.
