Dude, I don't know.

Looks Iike he's gonna end with some 360s here.

Looks Iike three or four of them at Ieast.

Great run for Russ HoweII. Let's hear it for Russ.

Ty Page, starting off with some 1 80 end-overs.

And now I think he's gonna-- He's gonna press up into a handstand.

There's a nice handstand across the pIatform, back down onto his board.

Looks Iike he's setting up for, yes, a daffy...

...and into a one-footed heeIie.

And ends up with a 360 in front of the judges.

Nice run for Ty Page.

Looks Iike a 9.5, a 9 and 1 0 for Ty Page. Those are reaI good marks.

ShouId put him right at the top of the competition today.

Next up, Jay Adams, riding for Zephyr Skateboards.

Okay, here we go with Jay Adams.


Doing these Iow-- These Iow, driving turns.

Yeah, Jay boy.

-Low 1 80 with RoyaI Christie. -AII right, Jay.

Oh, but he's aII right.

He's hopping up in the air three or four inches.

I don't even know what to caII that. I've never seen it.

He's, Iike, off the ramp.

That's it for Jay Adams. Let's see what the judges are gonna score him.

Yeah, dude. Oh, my God.

He didn't do a singIe wheeIie. He didn't do a singIe compuIsory trick.

WeII, you gotta give him a score.

Looks Iike two 7 s and an 8 for Jay Adams...

-Oh, come on. -...riding for Zephyr Skateboards.

You don't know how to judge.

Hey, you bIew me away.

He started out with some quick S-turns up onto the bank.

-Frontside 1 80 power sIide. -That's it, T.A.

Very nice waIking spinner.

Into a 360, maybe a 540.

Another Iow-driving turn, touching his hands to the ground.


Here he comes toward the judges. Ends up with a Iow-driving 360.

That was a great run for AIva.

Looks Iike we have two 1 0s and a 9...

-...the highest score of the day. -Yeah.

The dude showed.

-Go, Stacy. -Yeah, Stace.

Come on, Stacy.

-Yeah. -Where'd that come from, Stace?

Up, up, using the whoIe ramp, hands on the ground.


And there's another one of those Iow maneuvers...

...out of the pages of Surfer Magazine.

Looks Iike he's winding up for some 360s.

One, two, three, four, five.

Five 360s. Amazing. We haven't seen that many aII day.

Hey, Stacy!

Back across the fIat and there's his finish.

Two 1 0s and a 9 bring him into a first-pIace tie with Tony AIva.

A perfect right-handed kidney.

-Hey, what'd your dad say? -What'd he say?

''Sid, are you high? The pool's for swimming.''

Tell him we'll fill it back up when we're done.

Yeah. He said if you guys get hurt, you'll sue him.

-We won't sue him. -He said your parents will.

Dude, our parents can't even afford lawyers.

Hey, man. Let me talk to your dad.

Hey, man. The only Mexicans my dad talks to push lawn mowers.

Hey, guys. lt's Skip. Come on!

-Hey, shotgun, faggots! -Hey!

Seriously, we should drain it when he goes on his next business trip.

Yeah. He'd have you all killed. Good one, though.

Good idea. But no.

Hey! Kiss me, granny!

Love to get me some of the gray beaver!

Come back when your balls drop.

Yeah, you're looking good!

-Go back. Go back. -You, too, Mr. Rogers!

Let's skate already.

Hey, Skip, how you doing?

Let's give a big round of applause for the Z-Boys from Dogtown!

How groovy was that, huh?

Tony, come talk to me.

See you in the parking lot.

You know, Tony, you might be the best skater in the world someday.

Fact is, l think you are the best.

What do you want, dude?

Tony, l'll match whatever Skip's paying you.

And l'll throw in a car.

-What kind of car? -Hey, Larry.

How about...

...a brand-new Pontiac Firebird, muscled up with a 455 engine? l'll believe it when l see it.

Man, l'm the biggest skateboard manufacturer in the country.

So you know where to find me.

Nice work out there.

Excuse me. Could you get the front too, please?

Sure thing, bro.

Tell me about Larry, man.

-What about him? -Well, you tell me.

-Larry said l-- -He told me some shit...

''You may be the best skater in the world someday.

Fact is, l think you are the greatest.''

-Just throw these in. -Okay, so just two Doritos.


-So, what did he say to you, Peralta? -Yeah.

Well, l guess we're all the best skaters in the world.


Well, it's all working out for you boys.

You know what l'm thinking, bros?

We're gonna be on summer vacation for the next 20 years.


Dude, that's nasty, man.

-Hey! Hey, man! My car! -Oh, my God.

-You're too slow! -Get over here!

Kiss my ass, jack! You little knob-rocking butt clown!

What's happening, boys? How's the pool?

All right, Tony, let me get a shot of you right here...

...holding your board, like, strong. Above your head, yeah?

Get right underneath him. Don't lose that shot.

Give me the street thing. That is great.


Just one shot.

You're from Dogtown? What does that mean?

Venice, man. Ghetto by the sea. lt's dirty. lt's filthy. lt's paradise.

Okay, let's get all the Z-Boys in the pool now.

-Sid's gonna love it. -Oh, Sid!

Stacy, Jay and Tony, man. They couldn't buy that publicity.

Red Dog, man, check it out. You're in there. You're a hero, man.


-No way. -Yeah.

That's it, man. Six-page article, man. lt's Jay boy!

Hey, what's up, baby?

Hey, Skipper. When are we doing that spread for People magazine?


Yeah, and Stacy's gonna be on Charlie's Angels!

Movie star now, huh?

They couldn't even make it in the water.

They couldn't even surf the cove without me saying so.

Who wants to surf that toxic-waste dump anyways?

What did you say?


Hey, hey, hey! Whatever, man.

-This is for locals only. -Beat it, drag queen.

Would you make an exception for us?

Baby doll, let me just say l'm willing to negotiate.

-Thanks, Tony. -You're welcome.

What's going on?

-Hey, Mr. Alva. -What's up? l took what the dentist told me to take, but l don't feel anything.

That's the point, babe. Come on.

-Show us how it's done. -The girls love the ass.

Oh, man.

You just gotta-- You just gotta let it hang.

You'll throw your back out.

You guys know how many boards Skip's selling because of us? lf he ain't gonna flow us, then l'm bailing.

We can't bail on Skip, man. We're family. l'm not gonna hang around this shop like Chino and Montoya.

What profits, dickhead? This is a surf shop!

-That's not the point! -Later.

You wanna get rich, Skip?

-Go pimp yourself. -Oh, yeah?

This isn't about fame or money. lt never has been.

Right there, next to ''Zephyr.''

What do you think, man?

So, what do you say, bro?


That's all right.

You heard it from the boss's mouth.

Racers ready!




Racers ready!

-Take two. -And action.

Hey, can l try that?


That's a little harder than it looks.

-Moon boots, you know? -Yeah.

Stacy, thank you for speaking with us.

Good? Let's do one more, and we'll take a break.

Wow, you're famous, Stace. The God Squad.

Kathy, l was the last one to leave the Zephyr team.

Both your brother and Jay left without even telling Skip.

This is my girlfriend, Caroline.

Hi. Nice to meet you.

You too.

Everyone sees it their own way, l guess.

-Good luck, Stacy. -Stacy. Let's do it.

Skateboarding's been great. Thinking about buying a new Trans Am.

Black on black, with some big fat tires on the back.

Give me one second.


What's going on?

How was Australia? How was the...? How was the surf? l couldn't surf. They had me going all over doing demos and stuff.

You went to Australia and you didn't surf?

Yeah, l know.

So how's your sponsor?

Well, they help me pay the rent for my mom.

They were supposed to have...

Get back.

What's up, boys?

Where's your lasso, Wonder Woman?

Remember, class among gruel.

T.A. T.A.

What's up, Stacy?

Poor guy's so straight, he doesn't even cast a shadow.

You guys even skate with him anymore?

The dude's competing with the sun for the center of the universe.



...Stacy looks like a stock car.

Jay. What do you say, man?

Bro. Your board is bionic, bro.

This isn't the board l designed. This wood is cheap.

No, no, no. That's solid wood.

Jay, we're trying to make you a big chunk of change...

...but the boards you want are a tad bit too expensive to sell.

How do you know until you sell it?

Jay. Jay, look, you don't know business.

You don't understand. Hey!

You don't understand. He doesn't understand business, right?

You guys aren't living up to your word.

-Yeah? -Yeah. Look.

Cut the agent crap, Sid. All right?

You're a little rich boy who can't skate for shit.

You wouldn't even exist if it weren't for old Jay.

-All right? -Yeah.

-l know where your shit's at. -Make it happen with Jay.

-Make it happen. -lt's okay.

Hey, bro, look who's here. Hey, we know you.

This is a Channel 7 News special report.

Pacific Ocean Park Pier, infamous local surf spot...

...burned to the ground last night.

This is the latest in a series of fires that have plagued the park...

...since it was officially closed in 1 967.

Pacific Ocean Park, once described as superior...

...to Coney Island in New York, to the boardwalk in Atlantic City...

...lies in smoldering ruins today...

...and is now nothing more than a bunch of fond memories.

Look who's here.

Bastards didn't send fire trucks for over six hours or something.

Yeah, they wanted it gone.

They wanted it gone.

You know, the pier has been here for over 40 years.

Get behind the perimeter, all of you.

Set it up 500 yards down the beach.

Bring it back up to the highway.

You know that's where l learned to surf? Right there.

They look at the cove as a shithole.

l mean, thank God, man, because in winter this place goes off.

We had it all to ourselves.

We had it all to ourselves, man. You're right.

l have no reason to come here anymore.


Sorry l left, man. l just had to pay the rent.

Hey, man. Your mama, she has to eat, right?

She has to eat.

-Hey, bro. -What's up, T.A.?


What's this?


-Topper, man. -Little brother.

-Hey, man. Put these on. -No, no, no! lt's cool, man.


Hey, man. We got all the meds you need.

We're going to Maui and get you on some real waves.

Get in the limo. l told you, they're operating again on Thursday.


l love you, man. l want you to come.

l'll send you a ticket.

Let's go.

So are you a good pirate or a bad pirate?

Ahoy, captain.


So how are you doing?

-l feel like shit. -Yeah?

But the doctor says l'm getting better.

You'll be back on top again soon, man.

You gotta give it time.

l'm gonna end up a ditchdigger.


Hey, look at me, boy.

You remember you're an Alva.

You've got a lot of heart...

...and a lot of balls.

Hey, come on.


Let's go. Come on.

What's up, homey? You looking at me?

-You looking at me? -We were leaving.

-Looking at me? -Just checking things out.

Nice Rolex you got there, man. You sure you want that?

-You sure about that? -No, man. Hey, man.

No, he's cool. He's cool.

-Jay. -Hey. How you doing, man?

-What's up, dude? -How's it going?

Man, nice ride.

Where you been, Jay? l mean, l didn't even see you at the Arizona contest.

Well, l don't really skate malls for money, bro.

Hey, Kathy, come here.

-Nice car, man. -Hey, Stacy.

Hey, Stacy. How you doing?


Jay tell you about Sid?

He's sick, man.

What do you mean? He's always been sick.

No, he's real sick.

That whole equilibrium thing turned out to be a tumor.

Brain cancer.

What? Are you serious?

Yeah, it's bad. They operated already.

He's gonna be back home this weekend.

Yeah, we're all gonna go hang out. You should come.


We ain't gonna go see him like that.

Yeah, l can't go. l gotta go to Florida.

Tony's supposed to be there.

Come on, Jay. You gonna make out with him or what, eh?


...l'll see you at the mall.

All right, Jay.

l think we should put these new shirts on sale. What do you think?

-Hey, how you doing? Come on in. -Hey, how's it going, man?

Do you know when my board's gonna be ready? l know my guy started on it already. Let me go check it out.

Hey, Skip? We got an ETA on that 6'7'' twin fin?

Yeah, tell the kid he'll be surfing by Saturday, boss.

Beautiful. Okay. Thank you.

How about Saturday? At 1 0:30 it'll be ready.

Now, we've got a wet-suit sale going on.


You look like shit.

Let me see that thing.

Yeah, mine's real.

Dang. lt's pretty punk rock, bro.

l don't have to lift a finger anymore. l don't have to take out the trash. l don't even have to brush my own teeth.

Am l King Tut or what?

Yeah, my doctor prescribes it now.

Heard you were sick too.

Hell, yeah.

So did you get ahold of T.A.?

He and Stacy are off making their millions.

Sorry, dude.

No big deal.

Hey, if you do croak...

...will you give your house to my mom?

Only if she lets me see her tits first.

lt's awfully nice of you to bequeath your star-athlete-like presence...

...among us lower life forms.

Sid, man.

So, what happened to Florida? The Kona Bowl.

Yeah, l guess l missed my flight.

Won't Larry crucify you for that? l'm leaving G & S. l'm gonna start my own company. l've already got a logo.

Oh, you got a logo?

Man, screw the team. l mean, you got a logo.

-Sid, l'll just come back later, man. -No, wait. Stace.

You have to come check something out in the back, by the pool.

You too, asshole.

Dudes, look in the deep end.

There's a Mexican in my pool, and he ain't pushing a lawn mower.

Don't make me come up there and kick your ass, Sid.


You finally got your shadow back, huh?

What's up, chrome-dome?

What's the zipper for?

Easy access. He doesn't have to inhale anymore.

He just unzips and pours.

What are you girls waiting for? My dad said we can trash it.

Oh, my God.

Guys, let's get him in here.

Oh, yeah.


Okay. Wait, wait. l think this'll be the first pool session...

...where we don't have to worry about getting busted.

-You all right? -Yeah.


-Hey, guys. Let's get him in the drain. -Jesus--

All right.

Lock in, bud.


Look, Squid. l'll let you bang my mom.

You little punk.

-Sid, you okay? -Yeah.

Hey, Sid. Do you wanna carve?

l'm first.

We got you, bro.

-Squiddles, we got you. -Man down!

Oh, yeah. You did a kick turn, Sid.


What are you doing?

Don't be idiots!

-Sorry. -Yeah. Sorry. l'm fine.

Sorry, seƱorita.

Here. Put me over here.

Can you bring me some herb?

-Oh, my-- You all right? -Yeah.
