Drama set in the 1970s where a group of teenage surfers from a tough neighbourhood known as 'Dogtown' in Venice, California pioneer a revolutionary new style of skateboarding. Riding the waves at the Pacific Ocean Park pier, the Z-Boyz, known for their aggressive style and hard street attitude, combine the death-defying moves of surfing with the art of skateboarding and become overnight sensations and local legends. With empty pools as their canvas, the Z-Boyz pave the way to what is now referred to as 'extreme sports', and create a lifestyle that spreads infectiously to become a worldwide counterculture phenomenon. But all of this fame begins to take its toll on the friendships that they thought would last a lifetime, as the sport that started out as an afternoon hobby turns into big business.
