DAY AT THE POOL sheds new light on the true origins of modern skateboarding, featuring blazing interviews with Tony Alva, Stacy Peralta, Jay Adams and the rest of the Dogtown crew, who reveal that one anonymous kid from the swimming-pool suburbs of LA may have been singularly responsible for the skateboarding revolution that redefined adolescent life in America.

Perfectly situated between believable and fantastic, this film is sure to leave some viewers questioning what is true.

“This is the most important event on tour to me,” De Souza said. “Guys like Andy Irons, Kelly Slater, my hero Mick Fanning, they have all rung the Bell. I have been coming here a lot of years. I love the place. It has been a tough time for me recently. I started 2013 without a sponsor for the first time in many years. I had to believe in myself that a company would believe in me and one did. I have to say thanks to Pena for believing in me. I have a lot of people to thank, but all I want to do right now is ring the bell.” – Adriano De Souza
“To win Bells is a dream,” Moore said. “As a little kid, you always looked forward to watching it and reading about it. The history and the prestige and the people who have won it are really legendary. To be a part of it now is really special.” – Carissa Moore
