The official trailer for The Westsiders! Directed by Joshua Pomer, Narated by Rosana Arquette, Scored by Mike McReady.

The edgy and raw documentary has won awards from The Newport Beach Film Festival, Santa Cruz Film Festival, Honolulu Film Festival, LA Movie Awards and now the "Golden Lobster" award given to the best film in Portland Maine Internation Film Festival.

From surfing innovations to gritty localism, follow the rise and fall of The Westsiders surf tribe through the eyes of three best friends from the original 'Surf City': Santa Cruz, California. Best friends Daryl "Flea" Virostko, Shawn "Barney" Barron, and Jason "Ratboy" Collins bonded by common tragedy and their love of surfing. They live through shattered homes, drug addiction, other psychological issues and hard-core localism to achieve their dream of becoming professional surfers before the age of 24. To surf the notorious Steamer Lane, they had to join 'The Westsiders' Surf Tribe and go face to face with Vince Collier, aka "The Godfather of The Westside". Vince, a massive brute force, ran Steamer Lane with his own version of street justice. This film explores The Westsiders as the latest chapter in the fascinating history of Santa Cruz, California.
