Eipcly Later'd: John Cardiel is a documentary chronicling the life and career of maverick skateboarder, John Cardiel. The movie began as a 15 minute segment on Patrick O'Dell's online skating television station devoted to skating, VBS.tv, but the producers realized they needed more time to tell Cardiel's amazing story. The film traces Cardiel's story from his humble beginnings as a skate punk in Grass Valley, California to the top of professional skateboarding and the accident that nearly ended his life. Featuring archival footage of Cardiel skating as a kid and as a professional, the film explores how he developed his unique style and what he wanted to achieve as a professional skateboarder. Indeed, in only a short time on the pro circuit, Cardiel was named Thrasher magazine's 1992 Skater of the Year. However, he was nearly paralyzed in a skating accident where he was run over by a trailer. The film also details his amazing comeback as he learned to walk again. This is an inspirational documentary for skateboarding fans and non-fans alike.moreless
