Finally got around to watching the fantastic skate film Lords of Dogtown last week.
And as after any great flick based on a true story, you want to know more and dig deeper, so after searching out a few old original videos and pics of these kids in knee-high tube socks skating around empty California swimming pools in the 1970’s,
I found out that Stacy Peralta, one of the original Z-Boys (of Peralta skateboards fame) is now an incredible documentary filmmaker. He recently made an insane documentary on big wave surfers called Riding Giants which led me to another hour or so on you tube, aye ya yai.
Here’s a link to where someone’s actually uploaded the film in 10 installments.
