Lords of Dogtown Movie Review
Lords of Dogtown is a feature film that follows the lives of the Zephyr team in the 1970's. These surfers transformed the face of skateboarding, and their story is rich with life. Lords of Dogtown focuses on the lives of Jay Adams, Tony Alva and Stacey Peralta (who wrote the script). I truly feel that anyone would enjoy this movie. Skateboarding is a huge part of it, but Lords of Dogtown more deals with the lives of these young people, and the struggles they actually went through.
