"A little sociology lesson as you travel around with rick and buddy, drinking beer and breaking into backyards to ride some gems. Don't get the idea that this is vintage footage. shot and edited on super 8. This is the kind of thing that skaters dream about all day. Great footage of the greatest pool riders of modern times. Salba, Tony Farmer, OX, Royce Nelson and others. Don't get sucked in by the egoes of other films, there is no comparison for this movie."
*WARNING* NOT old skool, but awesome

"This was shot at the turn of the century- the 21st CENTURY. Nothing "vintage" that I remember in this vid. But across the country there is concrete being poured in the name of skating better and longer and flowing like the Old Masters, and this vid is all about that. Street tricks and tech-style is fine, if that's what you're into, but this video will open blind eyes and energize swollen ankles. If you can't find a pool or a park, build your own (though that can get pricey), or get all the skaters in town together and demand that city council build one and build it right. This vid is about the concrete style, the ride of the pool, the respect for where everything today came from. Tony Alva and Steve Alba both appear and have plenty to say in regards to the practice of pool skating.
*SPECIAL FEATURE* not to be missed is in the "interviews" section, under Pat Quirk, the Q-man gives the most passionate rallying cry for the SkateNation to rise up, to ride hard, to take your lumps and love it, to be a Skater with pride and confidence in yourself. BUY THIS DVD!!!!"
