In summary, I would like to say that the presence of Stacy Peralta in this and subsequent films has made skateboarding much more acceptable to the world of sports.
12 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when it first came out and thought it was a fair representation of Stacy and his family. I was not aware of his skill as a skateboarder until after seeing this film. After seeing Dogtown and Z Boys and Lords of Dogtown, I now want to see this film again. I have known Stacy and his family all of his life and am very proud of what he has accomplished in parlaying his skateboarding prowess into a most successful career. I admire his contributions in promoting skateboarding safety and will always be indebted to him for both performing for the students at Burke Jr. High in Pico Rivera, CA and urging the kids to use safety equipment while skateboarding and for sending one of his teams to perform at Rivera Middle School in Pico Rivera, CA. I worked at both schools and Stacy accommodated my requests. This was after I saw Freewheelin' and my students were very impressed with Stacy and his fame. He has certainly been mindful of his roots and contributing to the safety of aspiring skateboarders.

What I really liked about the film was that it contained a scene with his mother that really made the movie real for me. I also liked the scenes that showed some of the early competitions of downhill races before the boys mastered the inverted ramp skills that were so evident in "Dogtown and Z Boys" and "The Lords of Dogtown.

In summary, I would like to say that the presence of Stacy Peralta in this and subsequent films has made skateboarding much more acceptable to the world of sports. this activity as a world wide accepted sports activity.
