Stoked: The Rise and Fall of Gator
Details: Documentary 2002 81 min.
About: Big names in skateboarding recall skate legend Mark "Gator" Rogowski
Action: Good skating scenes
Kid Friendly?: Rated R
This is the story of the rise and precipitous fall of Gator Rogowski, one of
the greatest vert skateboarders of the early Eighties.
If you liked "Dogtown
and Z-Boys," you'll like this one too. In fact it makes a
good sequel. So see Dogtown first - then you'll have more perspective on the
skate scene for when you see this.
This movie has everything - you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be envious, and
then at the end you'll be very glad that you're NOT Gator Rogowski. And
you'll watch tons of great old school skating.
