Things haven't been easy for Bam Margera in recent years, with the Jackass OG battling bulimia and alcohol addiction following the death of his close friend Ryan Dunn in 2011. After stepping away from the limelight, Bam is now back doing what he does best: tearing up the streets on a skateboard.

Now approaching his 40s, Bam is perhaps less of a daredevil than he was in his early '00s heyday, yet he still shows flashes of the shredder that blew up skating and captured the imaginations of kids throughout America and beyond. Joined by friends old and new, he explains how he managed to get back on the board and recapture some of the old magic.
