The Tony Alva Story

Wednesday, October 9, 2019, 2:30 AM - 4:30 AM


Synopsis: Skateboarding did not start out as a rebellious, anti-authority lifestyle activity. One of the key figures in the early evolution of skateboarding from a wholesome, contest based "sport" into the freewheeling art form that it is today was Tony Alva. At 61-years-old, Alva, the oldest professional skateboarder in the world, is considered by many to be the godfather of modern day skateboarding. Alvas brand of aggression and bravado in the 70s set the stage for the way skateboarding would be forever defined. The Tony Alva Story chronicles its subject's humble beginnings on the streets of Santa Monica to his rise to superstardom as part of the legendary Z-Boys, his inevitable drug-induced implosion and his ultimate rise from the ashes to accept his rightful place as a beacon of hope and inspiration for generations of skateboarders the world over. Run time: 54 mins United States Directed by: Graham Nash
