In the first and only film history of Australian skateboarding, director Mike Hill captured the major trends, movers and bone shakers. From sidewalk surfing in the swinging sixties to the multi-million dollar extreme sports extravaganza of the new millennium, the ill-understood art of skateboarding has emerged as one of the predominant pastimes of young Australia. Tic Tac to Heelflip traces the underground evolution of this unique Australian subculture and the urban guerrillas who have taken their passion to the world. This phenomenal documentary also tracks the impact of key events and figures like the mid-70's Coca Cola team, the arrival of US touring pros and the rise of Australia as a world skating superpower during the 90s. There are expert accounts of the vertical Vs street style rivalry, the onset ol mass corporatisation in the mid 90's, alongside the contemporary competitive achievements of vert dogs Tas & Ben Pappas and mind-boggling stunt mastery of street rats.
