Following a group of British skateboarders on their journey towards Tokyo 2020, where skateboarding will make its debut as an Olympic sport, Boarders tells the story of skateboarding in the UK – from arriving in the early 70s all the way to its current-day popularity and rise to become an Olympic sport.As someone from the UK who used to skate, it’s really refreshing to see a doc about what it’s like to skate over here. Using the olympics as the basis of the doc and showing the struggles of the skaters that are working toward competing gives a really compelling insight into the uk skate scene, and how poorly skaters are treated by the industry.Really great doc, I’ll definitely be rewatching.
