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.
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.
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.
Meet some of the hottest stars from the world of action sports. This look at extreme athletes was directed by Tamra Davis (CROSSROADS, HALF-BAKED) and features Mike Basich, Tina Basich, Steve Berra, Mat Hoffman, Andy Irons, Mike D and many, many more.
It’s not hard to find extreme sports documentaries on DVD, but Keep Your Eyes Open is a cut above the norm. Hollywood director Tamra Davis (Billy Madison, Half Baked) brings to the genre a new polish, intellectual curiosity, and singularly interesting eye for unexplored camera angles and fresh visual settings. The subject is a little different, too: Keep Your Eyes Open concerns uniquely gifted athletes with a penchant for superior focus. They don’t keep an eye on competitors, and they contemplate possible injury as something not to avoid but to predict. The talent roster includes skateboarders Eric Koston and Steve Berra, extraordinary skier Seth Morrison, 17-year-old motorcycle champion Travis Pastrana (who seems to dance with his bike while suspended in space), and hot-tempered surfer Sunny Garcia (whose fight for survival, learned on the tough side of Oahu, informs his sharp skills riding waves). Davis’s husband, Mike D, makes an amusing cameo appearance as a security guard. –Tom Keogh
