Storyline

When a reporter too laid-back for his own good is told his last chance to keep his job is to get some good photos for a story on skateboarding, he seeks out a group of four boarders who agree to take him on a skateboarding tour of California. After showing extensive footage of skateboarding moves and tricks, the film then goes on to show some surfing and snowboarding. The film is also bookended by a pair of animated shorts, both about skateboard racing. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

this is probably the first skate movie iv seen when i was just a little boy, nonetheless the one that made the biggest influence. The first Ollie! all the founders of todays sk8-ing in one movie not knowing that they are just that, in others words in retrospect a great movie if you are and sk8-enthusiast, if not this movie simply sucks (advice; pick up a sk8board , there is still hope for U!)

other films to see in this perspective; search 4 animal chin, ban this, and so on see Powell Geralda on the net, and of course Dogtown-Zboys...
