Stacy does awesome work when he puts his mind to it. Dog Town and Z boys was great and Riding Giants upped the ante big time. Skateboarding and Surfing were both passions of his so it was not surprising that this translated well on screen. The Crips vs Bloods war is not so related. The only connection I see is that Stacey is a So Cal boy, so he may have been around/aware of it since it started. It certainly looks like he's tackled this with the same gusto as his previous efforts. I'll definitely check it out when it's available. Thanks for posting up the trailer NZ.

Hahaha, guess you haven't seen Dog Town and Z boyz eh?

Stacey was part owner of Powell-Peralta skateboards. They were the power house skateboard company in the 80's hey day of skateboarding. A feud that Steve Rocco had with them and World Industries brought the giant down. Still they were responsible for some of the best skate vids, Bones Brigade III: The Search for Animal Chin being considered one of the all time skate classics. They also had the who's who of pro skaters. Steve Cabarello(unknown these days), Tony Hawk(no one knows him anymore), Lance Mountain, Mike McGill and many others.
Stacey was also a pro skateboarder himself in the 70's and was considered one of the best in that era if not the best. I know he held a few world champion titles.

From what I understand, Powell is still going strong in the skate department with their park/pool decks, and re-issues.

Yeah, it's just Powell now and they are still around. They no longer have the who's who of skaters or the brand power that they did in the 80's though. Think Burton (but even stronger)to get an idea of what they were like back then.
