  • Cast
Legendary skateboarder Stacy Peralta directed this fast-paced, award-winning documentary that focuses on the Z-Boys of Venice Beach, Calif., who revolutionized skateboarding in the 1970s when they infused surfing techniques into the sport. Credited with founding skating culture as we know it, these young, innovative guys became legends in the field, and the depth of their influence is still felt in a variety of sports -- and society -- today.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this film includes some profane language used in casual discussion. Interviewees discuss sexual escapades and drug use, but neither of these activities are main topics of conversation. Parents should be forewarned that the film glamorizes trespassing and rule-breaking. However, the majority of the film simply centers on the evolution of skateboarding and its Dogtown roots.

Sexual Content

Not applicable

Violence

Some skateboard scrapes, dangerous surfing practices.

Language

Some strong language.

Social Behavior

Team members are described as aggressive. Various members discuss drug abuse, promiscuous sex, and overall excessive behavior.

Ads for various specific tennis shoes and skateboards while discussing the commercialization of the sport.
