Thrashin' is the title of a film about two rival skateboard gangs in Los Angeles directed by David Winters and written by Paul Brown and Alan Sacks. When the film was released in 1986 it was not well received by the critics, saying that the film was just a poor skateboard version of West Side Story or Romeo and Juliet. However, Thrashin' gained somewhat of a cult status among the kids of the 80's - it had all the right ingredients: gang rivalty, forbidden love, break dancing, and most important, some really cool skateboarding (of all types: ramp, street, freestyle, pool, downhill...) performed by some of the best skaters of the 80's, including Tony Hawk, Tony Alva, Per Welinder and Christian Hosoi.
