Downscale neighborhood near the border of Venice Beach and Santa Monica. Spawned the Zephyr surf team, or Z-Boys who went on to revolutionize skateboarding.

Sub-neighborhood in East Mount Airy, northwest Philadelphia pa. It was once a hot-bed of crime, however has since become a lower-to-middle class neighborhood that still "fronts" a hardened appearance because of its dirty streets and predominantly uneducated thug element. Criminal hopefuls who reside in this area refer to it as "up town," in reference to its location farther above the more "real" North-Philly. They will sometimes go so far as to say they live in Germantown, however that area doesn't technically begin until you travel south of Washington Lane.
Dogtown philly, holla!
to which one replies: " whatever, you're from Mount Airy."

When both you and your roommate bring home someone and you both hookup at the same time in your own beds. Like the scene when the brother and sister are hooking up in their shared room.

One of the best skate documentaries ever made. It chronicles the events that took place in South Santa Monica, California in the mid-to-late 1970's in a ghetto area known as "Dogtown." A group of twelve young radicals bonded together to become one of the most influencial skate teams to this day. The group included skateboarding legends such as Tony Alva, Jay Adams, and Stacy Peralta.

The boys were sponsored by the Zephyr surf and skate shop located in the heart of Dogtown. The owners of shop (Skip Engblom, Jeff Ho, and Craig Stecyk) acted as mentors, coaches, and fellow "pirates", often letting the youths engage in illegal activity and often joining in on the fun.

The Z-Boys were primarily surfers, and they carried their surf style into their skating, prefering the low surf stance to the traditional straight-backed style. As the boys gathered interset in their new style, they also gathered fame which was accompanied by high paying offers from competing skate companies.

"Dogtown and Z-Boys" documents the rise and fall of the Zephyr Skate Team.

If you want to know the real side of the story behind "The Lords of Dogtown," watch this movie!
"Dogtown and Z-boys is such a great documentary- it sucks that they had to ruin it by making that crappy Hollywood version of the story (Lords of Dogtown)."
