An Irish skateboard documentary? You better believe it. Directed by JJ Rolfe.
The initial driving force behind the scene was a proprietor of a unique skate shop in North Dublin inner city – ‘Clive’s of Hill Street’. From here, Clive Rowen single-handedly progressed the skate scene through the building of primitive ramps at the shop before graduating to a temporary skate park in the Top Hat Ballroom in Dún Laoghaire, Co Dublin….an exploration of a sport trying to legitimise itself against the backdrop of 80s Ireland.
