A well made documentary about finding and living your passion.
29 July 2011 | by t-coorlederSee all my reviews

Sure I am a part of this culture, so the story presented in this film has a special place in my heart.

Never the less, I believe it will be just as rewarding to any viewer as it was for me. I share my passion of skateboarding with everyone in this movie.

If you have another passion, or struggling with your mind to find one, this intimate, open minded presentation of Skateboard history in Sweden will motivate en enlighten you of what your life can become. What ever your passion is about.

The documentary shows unique footage and the interviews are well made and introduced. You will get to know some of the most important people in Skateboard history.

Downsides are not many, maybe one is that you want to no more than what fits in these 2 hours..
