In the mid-’70s, skateboarding was widely seen as a fad of the 1960s that had all but died out, except for a handful of committed fans in California.
But that began to change with the emergence of the Z-Boys — a team of teenaged skateboarders from a decaying urban community in Santa Monica, CA. Hard-core surfers who sought to translate the hot-dogging stunts of world-class wave riders onto their skateboards began hanging out at the Zephyr Productions Surf Shop, a store that stocked top-grade equipment for local surfers and skaters, and with the help of the store’s owner Jeff Ho, twelve of the skaters organized themselves into a team to compete at local skate events.
Soon the radical moves and scruffy-streetwise style of the Zephyr Skate Team — the Z-Boys for short — upended public preconceptions of skateboarding as a sport and a lifestyle, and the wild style of Z-Boy skaters such as Tony Alva, Jim Muir, and Jay Adams made them celebrities who blazed the trail for the extreme sports movement.
But while the Z-Boys’ success brought them a measure of fame and fortune — lucrative endorsement contracts, deals to manufacture their own custom skateboards, and even movie roles (Tony Alva starred opposite Leif Garrett in Skateboard, while Z-Boy Stacy Peralta was top-billed in Freewheelin’) — their fame proved to be fleeting, and several of the Z-Boys fell prey to drugs, crime, and ego.
Dogtown and Z-Boys is a documentary by former Z-Boy Stacy Peralta that chronicles the glory days of the Z-Boys through footage of the skaters in their prime and interviews with the pioneers of the Southern California skate scene. Rock musicians and noted skate enthusiasts Ian MacKaye, Henry Rollins, and Jeff Ament also appear to discuss the importance of the Z-Boys’ legacy; Sean Penn narrates.
This film by Stacy Peralta focuses on Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerrero, Tony Hawk, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain and Rodney Mullen.
“The Bones Brigade was a talented gang of teenage outcasts. Unmotivated by fame or popularity, they completely dedicated their lives to a disrespected art form. For most of the 1980s, this misfit crew headed by a 1970s ex-skateboard champion blasted the industry with a mixture of art and raw talent becoming the most popular skateboarding team in history.
The core unit of the Bones Brigade built an empire that covered the world. They dominated contests, made hundreds of thousands of dollars, created the modern skateboard video, reinvented endemic advertising, pushed skate progression into a new era, and set the stage for a totally new form of skating called street style. There’s nothing comparable in today’s skateboarding”
Random Quotes From Bones Brigade: An Autobiography:
Valley boys take on the punk rockers in this teen-age adventure.
This time they use skateboards instead of zip guns, knives and fists. The rich Valley kids, “The Ramp Locals,” are led by Corey Webster, while the leather-clad, street-wise punks follow Tommy Hook. The trouble begins when Corey falls in love with Tommy’s little sister who has come from Indiana for a visit. The rivalry between the gangs culminates during the grueling “LA Massacre,” a 20-mile downhill skateboarding race. The winning team will earn a corporate sponsor. For the final race, the filmmakers strapped a camera in front of a skateboard to give viewers a sense of the thrills experienced by the daring “thrashers.”

This is it. The first three Beer City skate video’s on one DVD.
Why settle for one when you can have all three? It’s ‘Annihilation time’
‘Annihilation’ is blood, guts, spirit and hitting the streets, pools and bowls. Hitting them, and hitting them hard. Riding hard, riding fast, getting in and grinding, not coming up for air, sticking with it until the end, putting your body on the line and praying that maybe, just maybe you can make through the session intact. ‘Annihilation’ is skating at it’s purest, taking everything back to basics and having a blast. Featuring a multitude of riders who have consigned their souls to four wheels and a board, including Tim Kulas ,Dan Nepscha, Stuart Dodge , and more. Plus a guest appearance by pro skater and Beer Nutz hardware team rider Kristian Svitak. ‘Annihilation’ does exactly what it’s name suggests.
‘Wasted’ ensures that the good times just keep on rolling, and picks up the pace with Duane Peters, Scott Smiley ,Tim Kulas , and the boys having fun on four wheels, ripping it up with some sick and way out there pool and bowl action and entertaining themselves with video camera’s and also includes exclusive footage from the team’s tour of Australia!
‘Tanked’ is the skate equivalent of an old school circle pit. Beauty in chaos, and transcendence through mayhem, nothing is scared as ramps, pools and the streets are utilized to their maximum potential by ,Scott Smiley ,Davey Rogers , Chris Benge and the one and only Master Of Disaster himself, Duane Peters accompanied by the usual crew of assorted reprobates. Doing what they do best to a thumping punk rock soundtrack.

A handful of legendary West Coast skateboarders are captured at the top of their game in this blend of action and comedy. A photographer (Kurt “Mellow Cat” Ledterman) has been told to find something new and exciting to cover for his next magazine assignment. As luck would have it, the photographer soon crosses paths with a team of radical skaters who offer to take him on a tour of California’s best skate spots.
The tour soon turns into a comic free-for-all of wild skateboard action and inspired hijinks. Skateboard Madness features vintage skate footage dominated by Stacy Peralta, Kent Senatore, Gregg Ayres, and Dan “Mini Shred” Smith; Peralta later went on to direct a definitive skateboarding documentary entitled Dogtown and Z-Boys.
