THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE GOLDEN GATE PARK SKATE SCENE
The San Francisco Skaters are having a 40 year celebration of The Golden Gate Park Skate Scene on July 11th – 14th. Below is a link to a page that will explain the event.
We are trying to get $ support to re-pave Sk8Dance Plaza where we sk8 every weekend. Now that we are a bonafide Non-Profit Organization (501.3c Calif Corp) we are able to give Tax Deductible receipts to donors. Please share this GoFundMe Link with everyone you know. All donations go directly to the Venice Beach Skate Dance Association Bank Account. Every $ counts and our goal is $20,000.00 to be donated to the city in the name of the Venice Beach Skate Dance Association to re-pave our spot. Thanks on behalf of all of the Venice Beach Skaters.
Roller Dreams is a humorous and poignant feature documentary about the rise and fall of the iconic Venice Beach roller dancing scene.

ROLLERWAYS is a short documentary that surveys the LA roller skating scene and those who populate it. Ranging from the nostalgia of the rink and its charming organ music to the down-and-dirty scene of the roller derby, this film reveals universal truths that should permeate any scene in any city: find your passions, show love to others, live in the present, believe in yourself, and just don’t forget to have a good time. John C. Reilly and Snoop Dogg (aka “DJ Snoopadelic”) make guest appearances along the way.
