In 1996, skateboarding was dominated by videos from California that were very spot oriented. Dan Wolfe’s Eastern Exposure Underacheivers (1996) was a breath of fresh air. Filmed in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C., Underachievers showcased the spots and talent on the Eastern Seaboard. The style of skating ushered in by guys like Ricky Oyola focused more on doing lines in the streets instead of skating one place at a time. That influence had a huge impact on skating in the ’90s, and is still present today. Dan Wolfe just uploaded Underachievers to his YouTube account. Give it a watch to see an important piece of skateboarding’s history.
