Wait, didn't I just watch the whole movie?

I like to think that was a nod in there to Corvette Summer.

It's wacko, but no more wacko than darts or golf.

I'm just crazy enough to try that IRL.

I like the part where the stress of success tests their friendship.

And they say satire is dead.

No, only the tasteful thickness of it.

Travis just did a grind. On the mirror.

That is a truly sick trick, because objects in the mirror are closer than they appear.

I enjoyed that very much. Moreover: Does anyone know who did that cover of "California Dreaming"?

I was really hoping for a scene like this.

Very good. Reminds me of this excellent trailer for the documentary POOLJUMPERS.

I had no idea that Dogtown and Z-Boys was such a fertile ground for satire.

Thanks. I never would have seen this on my own. This is why I come back to MetaFilter day in and day out. It is too bad on the credits they don't tell you who the investors are. Anyone willing to bankroll this movie is someone I want to hang with. A stoner with excess money and a sense of humor.

California Dreamin....

Nothing beats the natural feeling of airboarding naked with a leaf.... Man.

Fucking sick.

It's probably the one used in lottery commercials, by this Belgium women's choir. Here is the music video.
