We believe the following trivia is all legit. If it's bogus or you have additional info, please update us.
If you are interested in seeing a Carbon Copy film made in 1993, check out "Airborne" starring Shane McDermott, Seth Green, & Jack Black. Essentially the exact same story about a nice guy just trying to be himself who falls in love with the sister of his nemesis, only instead of being set on skateboards it's all done on the newest craze of the 90's, Rollerblades! The story even similarly culminates with an EXTREME downhill Rollerblading race which ultimately proves our hero to be the best skater around and reconciles his feud with the antagonist. A classic dupe on audiences, but both Thrashin' and Airborne Fans could line the movies up and watch them side by side to see that it plays the exact same; I guess it just depends on which decade one is more nostalgic over!
Famous skater, Tony Alva (one of the members of The Daggers - has the famous line, "Beat it ya Val Jerk!"), played bass in a band from Venice, CA called The Skoundrelz. You can find a song by The Skoundrelz in the movie. More on the band can be found here.
The Swedish freestyleskater Per Welinder co-owns the skateboard company birdhouse with Tony Hawk. Per Welinder speaks some Swedish in the film and also does skatestunts in the film "Back to the Future"
