| this film is a classic!
You have to look at this film as a tim capsule of the way skateboarding was..... the skateparks that are no longer there, the long hair, the short shorts.. This film took a few years to make and it was started at a time in skateboarding when the sport was evolving every month, boards were changing shape, truck sizes changes,, early during the filming, skaters where just starting to hit coping and barely get air, most skateparks were organic very flowing parks with no vertical and by the end of the film skateparks had been built with lots of vertical and pool coping.. It seemed like the film was never going to be finished because it would have been outdated by the time it came out so they kept trying to get the newest tricks on film before finishing it.... anyhow, great film.. Too bad for the new DVD they shortened the film by 30mins.. i'm sure it makes it a tighter film but go look for a copy of the original if you want to see it all...
