The Z-Boys, as they come to be known, perfect their craft in the empty swimming pools of unsuspecting suburban homeowners, pioneering a thrilling new sport and eventually moving into legend.
Plot: “Lords of Dogtown” tells the radical true story behind three teenage surfers from Venice Beach, California, who took skateboarding to the extreme and changed the world of sports forever. Stacy Peralta (John Robinson, Elephant), Tony Alva (Victor Rasuk, Raising Victor Vargas) and Jay Adams (Emile Hirsch, The Girl Next Door) are the Z-Boys, a bunch of nobodies until they create a new style of skateboarding that becomes a worldwide phenomenon. But when their hobby becomes a business, the success shreds their friendship. Directed by Catherine Hardwicke (Thirteen) and written by Stacy Peralta, Lords of Dogtown is “…a dazzling daredevil ride.” (Peter Travers, Rollng Stone)

portrayal totally on target
I grew up in California and this movie REALLY brought me back to the 70’s and what was happening in the skateboard world. The actors were totally on mark with their portrayals of these guys and how things were back then in California at that time. I’m a girl and I was into skateboarding at that time. I saved my own money to buy my own boards. I even remember my mom came home one day and gave me an article from a magazine about Alva. I met him later in the 80’s and he’s a very down to earth guy. If you grew up in Cali at this time, you will LOVE this movie and if you didn’t you will get the true idea of what it was like then. Awesome job guys on this film! A definite classic!
Good by Ledger
This was a great movie on friendship in the ’70’s, and a look at how the sport of skateboarding took off. I’d wanted to see it for awhile, so with Heath Ledger’s death, didn’t hesitate anymore. I didn’t recognize him as the surf shop owner Skip, for the first several scenes. I think he added poignancy to his role, as did others who, in the film, fought their way to who they are. Interesting to know this is based on lives of people still in the skateboarding business, including the man who started off Tony Hawks career. It’s good to have work out there yet to see Heath Ledger’s talent shine. I’d recommend this movie to people who like to observe people, even if you’re neither a skateboarding fan or a Ledger fan.
