Documentary / Family (2008) 55 minutes (USA) ~ Color
In the 1990's, street skateboarding was on the rise, it even overshadowed the once dominant type of skateboarding called "vert" – as the preferred style. As street skating was quickly progressing, so was the small town Wasilla Alaska. By some statistics during this time frame, Wasilla was the fastest growing city in the United States. This movie tries to capture the surge of skateboarders that mirrored the growth of this frontier city during the 1990's.
