Southern California native and legendary skate photographer Craig R. Stecyk III documented the birth of skateboarding as we know it today.

Capturing iconic images of the Zephyr skateboarding team (otherwise known as the Z-boys) during the 1970s in Santa Monica and Venice (otherwise known as Dogtown), Stecyk’s influence on skateboard culture is insurmountable.

The Z-boys took skating from what was considered a child’s pastime, comparable to yo-yo’ing or playing frisbee, to a physically intelligent sport, cultural phenomenon, and Southern California institution. Stecyk was there for all of it and managed to capture every mood, feeling, and motion.

He later founded Zephyr skate brand and wrote the documentary surrounding his experience with the influential teenage surfer/skateboarders, Dogtown and Z-Boys.
