Dogtown and Z-boys

Captures the rise of the Zephyr skateboarding team from Venice's Dogtown, a tough "locals only" beach with a legacy of outlaw surfing, who used abandoned swimming pools to sharpen their skills.

I love this documentary about the guys who brought pool riding and vertical skateboarding to life. Great soundtrack and filmed beautifully. Makes you want to surf. Or skate. Or both.

Interesting documentary of the surf and skate scene in Santa Monica / Venice during the 70s. Cool footage of the era.
