09.15.14Netflix Credit Netflix with this entry because I had no idea this movie existed until it popped up as a recommendation after Dogtown and Z-Boys. It's pretty cool to see Peralta return to familiar territory 11 years after his previous skating doc. Still just as personal and informative but set a decade after Dogtown, this catalogs the rise and evolution of skating in the 80s. The half-pipes, the skate videos, street skating... and how it's pretty much directly attributable to this team that Peralta put together.

I liked this as much as the first one. For me it's almost a sequel because it covers another decade of the same history. I was never a skater but I was a kid during this time so I was aware of it in the periphery of my life and for whatever reason I loved surf and skate movies growing up like North Shore and Gleaming the Cube, so it's nice to see these connections get made here.

I'm not sure why this wasn't talked about like Dogtown was... maybe it was but I just wasn't around to hear it?
