cheesy and gnarly.........
24 July 2006 | by kastagneSee all my reviews

1986.Skatebordin' is blooming and almost booming...... What could have been another piece of crap is actually and surprisingly quite good. The plot shows now and then some usual clichés amongst skaters, but the cast plays very good; i cannot say it is the most engrossing movie of the 80's, but you'll get your amount of fun, love, music and skating scenes.As in many teen flicks(remember Tuff Turf),the plot is simple:Valleyboy meets the girl, but the girl belongs to the opponent's team,a competition will take place.....guess the ending..... If you're a Red Hot Chilli Peppers fan,don't miss their performance live, singing a song from their first album.
