9. Dogtown and the Z boys

Dogtown and Z-Boys is a 2001 documentary film directed by Stacy Peralta. Using a mix of film the Zephyr skateboard team shot in the 1970s by Craig Stecyk and more recent interviews, the documentary tells the story of a group of teenage surfer/skateboarders and their influence on the history of skateboarding (and to a lesser extent surfing) culture.

Having been a skater myself only a few years ago i have a fair upstanding of the styles and attitudes of some skaters today, but i know very little about the attitudes of skaters in the past. Watching this movies has given a much better understanding of the lifestyle of the these skaters.
