Director: Stacy Peralta
Starring: Sean Penn (narrator), Jay Adams, Tony Alva, Stacy Peralta
A loving documentary (with a killer soundtrack) about the legendary, trailblazing Zephyr skate team of the 1970s. Heath Ledger starred in a thoroughly shitty Hollywood adaptation in 2005, proving that skating rivals only hip-hop in the annals of "Things the Mainstream Fucks Up."

In a Hawaiian jail on drug charges when Z-Boys premiered, Jay Adams was released in 2002, only to land in prison again in 2005 (he was paroled in 2008).
