One of the key figures in the early evolution of skateboarding from a wholesome, contest based "sport" into the freewheeling art form that it is today was Tony Alva.

Tony is now 63 years old, the oldest professional skateboarder in the world, is considered by many to be the godfather of modern day skateboarding. Alva’s brand of aggression and bravado in the 70’s set the stage for the way skateboarding would be forever defined.

Vans’ The Tony Alva Story chronicles T.A.’s humble beginnings on the streets of Santa Monica to his rise to superstardom as part of the legendary Z-Boys, his inevitable drug-induced implosion and his ultimate rise from the ashes to accept his rightful place as a beacon of hope and inspiration for generations of skateboarders the world over.

The film premiere will be followed by a Q & A hosted by Christian Hosoi with special guests Tony Alva, directors Rick Charnoski & Coan "Buddy" Nichols, Peggy Oki, and Elijah Berle.

Written & Directed by Rick Charnoski & Coan "Buddy" Nichols/Six Stair Productions

Starring: Tony Alva, Jeff Grosso, Wynn Miller, Steve Olson, Shepard Fairy, Gus Van Sant, Josh Brolin, Jeff Ament, Glen E Friedman, Robert Trujillo, Brad Bowman, Pete Zehnder, Jeff Ho, Stacey Peralta, Elijah Berle and more.


Mike, aka German in Venice, vlogs about daily life in Venice Beach. In his newest video, he addresses all the growing number of homeless encampments in Venice.

"Today I went down Venice Boulevard to showed a Homeless encampment underneath the bridge, and then I went to Venice Beach Boardwalk and showed the new skid row of Los Angeles. Lots of homeless people camped right on Venice Beach. It is not a good look for the community something has to be done."
This is not related to the Woman Found Beaten And Left For Dead At The Venice Pier story we recently ran.

Photos and videos from Pepperdine Graphic:

A car chase that started in the valley ended in Malibu prompting the closure of PCH on a busy afternoon.

The chase started about 1:55 p.m. at Ventura Boulevard and DeSoto Avenue, LAPD said. The driver of a work truck hauling a trailer allegedly hit several cars along Ventura Boulevard and ran a red light. They chased this fool over the canyon and onto PCH.

Shortly before 2:30 p.m., the driver stopped again along PCH and Carbon Canyon Road, and at least six LAPD units were waiting behind.






PCH was shut down from Sweetwater Mesa to Carbon Canyon after the driver stopped.

At 3:10 p.m., officers went up to the driver’s side of the vehicle with their guns drawn and forcibly removed the shirtless man from the truck.



As seen in our Tuesday Instagram Story, LAPD was investigating what appears to be an attempted murder on a woman at the Venice Pier.

According to one of the officers on the scene, a woman was found severely beaten and left for dead at the restroom just south of the Venice Pier.

The attack happened sometime between 2:00 and 5:00AM, and the womans body was discovered around 6:30AM.

She was taken to the hospital and is in critical condition.

No other info was given, but as seen in our Instagram Story, the detective was going over the scene and saying that she was beaten in the parking lot, then dragged over to the backside of the restrooms where her body was dumped.
