#TonyAlva does not need any introduction.
He is the original skateboarder, the one that started it all.
Born in 1957, Tony still lives his life as a full-time skateboarder, surfer, musician and artist.
This film is the result of 5 years spent across the world, and an inside look on the life of one of the most influential pioneers in our culture.
Tony Alva started modern skateboarding and to this day, he continues to write its history. At 60 years old, Tony Alva is still learning.
