If you don't know, this is the documentary that the new movie "Lords of Dogtown" is based on. I guess you really won't have much interest in this if you don't have any interest in skateboarding, but I don't know, maybe you will. It's about this small group of friends from the Venice Beach area in the early 70's who basically created skateboarding as we know it today. They were all surfers, but in the afternoon the waves would disappear, so they turned to skateboarding. However, they used their surfing sensibilities on the boards, riding walls, etc., basically doing what we take for granted as being typical skateboard moves for the first time. At the same time, CA had a horrible drought and because all the pools were drained, they skated in the pools, eventually inventing the "aerial" moves that are commonplace in skateboarding today. The documentary shows this small group of friends as they gain worldwide fame, some continuing to influence the skating world and some falling to the temptations of drugs, etc. It's a really well-done documentary, written and directed by Stacy Peralta, one of the most successful of the original Z-Boys (they were originally sponsored by Zephyr Skateboards). It's neat to see how the entire sport of skateboarding was more or less invented by a bunch of bored teenagers. One of the only setbacks of the film is that pretty much all of the original Z-Boys interviewed seem to realize the importance of their roles in the sport's history, and as such, all seem to come across as very self-congratulatory and occasionally egotistical. Still, there's this underlying sense of in your face anti-establishment that's pretty fun and inspiring.
