The award winning Sundance documentary turns out to be a pretty good disc despite it's fullscreen. 91 min. narrated by Sean Penn. It covers the period in the mid 70's where extreme skateboarding and skateboarding as we know today formed. Including some other historical events like: the birth of Cadillac Urethane Wheels, as appossed to the old clay wheels It also touches on the birth of Venice Beach and its sudden demise. Very informative disc, which is not a boring documentary at all. Film maker, Stacy Peralta brilliantly uses home movie footage (this was the mid-70's), and still pictures to keep the pace moving along with current interviews with the now aged Zephyr surf and skateboarding team. The best scene is when the Zephyr team enters its first skateboard contest. Needles to say, they take over the whole contest with cutting-edge style, blowing the doors off the old-school riders and there very humurous linear, upright style. This is not only for skateboard or surf fans, it's suprisingly very historical, and shows the birth of this modern day pop culture.
