Lords of Dogtown (2005) and Dogtown and Z-Boys (2002) - Review

This is the story of how skateboarding saw a resurgence and was brought back to life and then into the mainstream by a bunch of surfers who translated surfing moves into skateboarding. 
For this, I would recommend watching the movie (Lords of Dogtown) first and then following that up with the excellent documentary (Dogtown and the Z-Boys). Both are really good films but I think I enjoyed the documentary better just because you get actual interviews with the people involved and that is the real story. The movie takes some liberties with the story timeline but it is still a good flick to check out if you like skateboarding.
