    DOGTOWN & Z-BOYS PART 2 OF 5

    Dogtown and Z-Boys is a true video documentary, leading you the viewer from the earliest start of the Zephyr team, to where they are today. The video starts with an introduction to what became known as the "Dogtown Articles", written by Craig Stecyk. The video shows this famous quote, "Two hundred years of American technology has unwittingly created a massive cement playground of unlimited potential. But it was the minds of 11 year olds that could see that potential."

    Dogtown and Z-Boys then walks through the history of Dogtown, talking about the surfers in the area and how rough and poor the locals were. The documentary explains how in 1972 a surf shop was opened in Dogtown called Jeff Ho and Zephyr Surfboards. It would be the surf team from this shop that would transition its aggressive surfing style to skateboarding, and change things forever. For more details on the history of Dogtown and th Zephyr team, read The True History of Dogtown and the Zephyr Team.

    ***The Z-Boy story was also made into a feature film, Lords of Dogtown, in late 2005.***
