I do not know which "version" of Skateboard Madness this is being sold here on Amazon. Through the years, segments have been added to this movie to keep it relevant (snowboarding, punk rock, animated sequences etc.). I am reviewing the original 1980 version in this summary. If you liked Dogtown & Z-Boys, this film should be right up your alley. It features some great pool and pipe skating as well as tons of grainy 16mm footage of the 70's skate "scene". There is a thin plot about a photographer that travels around with a group of skaters that outlines many skateboard and some rollerskating segments. It also includes a Claymation animated segment about a rat and a hippie skating around a concrete skate park. If you love striped tube socks, long hair and Vans shoes, this is a movie for you.

I saw this movie in a little theatre when it came out, years ago. I was a little skate rat, and thought it was hokey, even then. It's still downright silly overall, and the guy who plays "mellow cat" is just awful. The skateboarding scenes, however, are worth the price of admission, even today. Watching Stacy Peralta ride a cement half pipe is just so darn cool. The other skaters are great as well, but Stacy's slides: rock walks, frontside powerslide on vert, and cess slides, are just the coolest in my book. What is really visible in this movie is how much style and flow have vanished from skateboarding. This is a great nostalgia trip for anyone who skated during the 70s. The extra footage of Caballero at Winchester is pretty cool as well, and shows how influential he would become. It's a fun film to see, nothing really more or less than that. If you take out the silly footage of driving, eating, random stuff, the claymation cartoon, and the RIDICULOUS rollerskating footage, you get about 30 minutes of great old school skateboarding.

This movie is a bit of a mixed bag, which to me was very entertaining. Featuring skateboarding, surfing, kite surfing and roller skating with some of the best slow motion footage of bowl skateboarding i have ever seen, absolutely amazing filming.
Off course early 80's skateboarding is the dominant sport featured here and is very cleverly woven into a extremely entertaining movie.

As with reviews above and elsewhere on Amazon, generally I must concur. If you take out all the totally superfluous material added here in order to try and link segments together in a lame attempt to make this some kind of coherent 'story' what you are left with is some stunning and rare raw footage. It's quite a weird movie really: acting as wooden as the boards the kids are riding, along with some strange unnecessary sound effects and an even stranger narration in a pretentiously corny voice (sounds a bit like an amateur rendition of the voice at the end of the '60s Batman series); a 'claymation' animated intro sequence that I cannot fathom which seems to bear no relation to the film that follows, again with a very amateur 'character' voiceover. It's all mixed in with the odd attempt to bring it all back to some kind of storyline now and again.

I would so love to see the raw footage here assembled into a really decent documentary. I know we have 'Dogtown & Z-Boys' but I don't recall seeing most of this footage before. Some absolutely gripping footage going back to the '60s; also some '70s footage of Stacy Peralta working wonders. Someone remarked elsewhere on a review of this film that it does reveal how much style and particularly 'flow' has been lost from the sport, with which I could not agree more. The early influence of surfing being much more evident in those days. Even though there is much that grates about this film, the 'greats' still keep it together and hence still most definitely worth having in your collection, along with Downhill Motion, Spinnin' Wheels, Go For It, Magic Rolling Board etc and for this reason I still recommend!

Probably the best movie ever made. Ok.. it's cheesy. But what's to say? Phil Hartman Narrating? Every skateboarder should have a copy of this movie.
