Synopsis

Stacy Peralta was a professional skateboarder back in the 1970s. He made the documentary Dogtown and Z-Boys in 2001, which told the story of how he and a few friends revolutionised the sport. Here, he provides the script for a fictionalised version of their story. Jay, Tony and Stacy are young kids with a lot of energy, and not much money. They live in a rundown beach town, and love to surf. But when the waves aren't big enough, they decide to skateboard instead. It's the beginning of something very big both for them and for the waiting world.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
