Unlike most skateboarders of his generation, UK skate legend Sean Goff is refusing to give up. Now well into his fifties, his skills may have diminished, but his love for adrenalin hasn’t. After skating as a pro in the ‘80s, he kept on competing, sticking two fingers up at the ageing process. Now, he’s been told that another injury could permanently disable him. Sean’s response? He enters Vert Attack – a dangerous aerial contest on a terrifying 12ft high ramp. Not being able to skate is scarier than not being able to walk.
This feature-length film with exclusive and unrestricted access to Sean, his family, friends and unseen 8mm archive is the story of one man’s determination to keep doing what makes him happy, even if it means risking everything. It’s a meditation on getting old and ‘raging against the dying of the light’ through the lens of the skateboarding explosion of the ‘70s and ‘80s.
