In the 1970s, a group of teenage surfers from a tough neighborhood known as 'Dogtown' in Venice, CA pioneered a revolutionary new style of skateboarding. Riding the waves at the Pacific Ocean pier, the Z-Boys – known for their aggressive style and hard street attitude – combined the death-defying moves of surfing with the art of skateboarding and became overnight sensations and local legends. With empty pools as their canvas, the Z-Boys paved the way for what is now referred to as 'extreme sports', and created a lifestyle that spread infectiously to become a worldwide counterculture phenomenon. But all of this fame would take its toll on the friendships that they thought would last a lifetime, as the sport that started out as an afternoon hobby turned into big business.
