The high school scenes were filmed at Woodbridge High School in Irvine, California in early 1987. Although Christian Slater and members of the cast are seen skateboarding on campus (by permission of Woodbridge High School principal Greg Cops), in actuality Woodbridge High School has a strict policy that bans skateboarding on campus.

Alright, the movie ain't ALL THAT, but it brings back warm memories. The whole style of the movie was real cool back when I was 10, and the feelings kind of stuck.
The story line is stupid but the skater-guys are cool. A lot of the acting is poor, but a GOOD MOVIE. You have to look past all the bad stuff and just try to sink into the whole 'nice family' good brother avenging the death of his step-brother theme. THEN you will enjoy it. :-)
