Skaterdater VHS or DVD
2 October 2007 | by bduffy-8See all my reviews

This is a great short film; I was looking for it for a friend who like all the other commenters saw it years ago and loved it.

I decided to try the former distributor, Pyramid Media.

THEY STILL HAVE IT, IT IS STILL AVAILABLE.

Get Skaterdater on VHS or DVD from Pyramid. Their website is www.pyramidmedia.com - though it's not listed there.

Call them (phone numbers are on the website) for a price. Not that expensive for a personal copy of a wonderful vision of growing up, surfer music, southern California and just being a kid.

Hope this helps.
