Have you seen Dogtown and Z-boys?
I have lived in NYC since 1996 and there are a rare few things that make me miss Los Angeles.
This movie made me miss it.
It’s a vibe. A wildness. White hot sun and dirty streets. It’s a particular kind of rebellion which birthed the Zephyr crew who took surf moves to concrete and brought skateboarding out of obscurity and party-trick-land onto the streets. Out of a wasteland, these guys made art. The youngest member of the crew, Jay Adams, was 13. I was inspired, but I also wondered what it is that causes great rumblings, causes people to build something where no one else will.
Know what I mean?
