Mack Dawg Press Release
In 1988 Mack Dawg Productions released a skateboarding film called Sick Boys. Shot entirely on Super 8 film Sick Boys documents the early street skating movement in San Francisco along with footage of select demos, skate camps and competitions from those formative times. The film primarily focuses on legends Tommy Guerrero, Mickey Reyes, Bryce Kanights, Mike Archimedes, Natas Kaupas, Julien Stranger, Jim Thiebaud, Ron Allen, and Steve Caballero as well as shots of Christian Hosoi, Tony Magnusson, Eric Dressen, Danny Sargent and many others.
Free from outside control or industry support, Sick Boys was produced without any sponsors and had a limited distribution of 1,000 VHS copies worldwide. Sick Boys has become a cult classic that truly depicts how fun and care free skating was 20 years ago. From the roots of the whole street movement to classic road trips and excursions Sick Boys remains relevant to this day. In order to commemorate this visual history, Mack Dawg Productions is proud to re-release Sick Boys for the first time on DVD.
Included extras within the re-release are the “Sick Boys to Men” never-before seen interviews with Tommy Guerrero, Mickey Reyes, Bryce Kanights, Mike Archimedes, Natas Kaupas, Julien Stranger, Jim Thiebaud, and Ron Allen. These 2008 interviews provide great insight into the way skating was back then and how being a skater featured in Sick Boys has changed and intertwined their lives. Also included is a collector’s booklet with classic photographic images from Bryce Kanights, Tobin Yelland and Luke Ogden.
