“Dogtown is what the kids call their hometown, Venice. Venice, California. It’s one of the showplaces of good old American self-expression. Here, you do your thing and the world watches. The kids’ thing is skating. . . . The La Costa boys from the richest suburbs of San Diego see themselves as superior to the wild Dogtowners in the intertribal competition that exists in skateboarding.”
