skateboard kings

Saw this movie as part of a Saturday double feature in 1978 when I was a kid. An ad for the movie Skateboard in the paper..had this movie Skateboard Kings listed in small print as part of a double feature.

also showing Skateboard Kings

I thought Skateboard the movie was pretty cheesy with the actors they had Skateboarding etc but it was a movie about skateboarding .. there was an intermission where they gave a bunch of t shirts and parts out as door prizes, I actually won something for the first time ever but I can't even remember what it was now. The next film came on and it quickly became apparent that this was way better than the first film - the cinematography, music, and even bad acting by the Dogtown guys in the staged scenes in the film captured the essence of the time. Never forgot it. Classic
