(spirited music)

- [Camille] Wherever

there's a hill and concrete,

skaters will ride it

till they have it wired.

The speeds are amazing,

up to 50 miles an hour.

They call it freewheelin'.

I got the sun on my shoulders

I got the wind on my side

Feels like I could fly on forever

When I take you out on a ride

Down the road, it's a beautiful feeling

The day is still so new

Oh, watch me shine

I feel so fine

Just rolling with you

- Sometimes when I think about

all the things we did this past year,

it's almost like a dream.

We had so much fun,

but everything went by so quickly,

and there I was watching

Stacy get on the plane,

and I was really happy for him

because he'd finally

gotten what he wanted,

and now he was really on his way.

We really had a lot of fun together,

going places to skateboard and surf

and meeting all the best skateboarders.

I suppose before I met Stacy,

I really didn't know

much about skateboarding.

I just thought it was something

that little kids did,

but you can't be around

Stacy very long before

you learn everything there

is to know about skating.

He'd always be talking about it,

poles, slalom, downhill,

tubes, sun wading, pumping,

and all the freestyle tricks.

I guess by now I know as

much about it as anyone.

It's funny how we met, Stacy and I.

He had this job working in a restaurant,

and every day he'd have to skateboard home

and get dressed real quick for work.

Got a job in the city

Well, it's so dull, it's a crime

How can people look so unhappy

And tell me what to do

- [Camille] He wasn't real happy about it.

Even then, he was looking for a way out,

and I guess I was too.

I was going with an older guy.

He used to take me places,

fancy restaurants and that kind of thing.

- Can we get some water here?

- Sure, here you go.

(restaurant employees chatter)

(gentle instrumental music)

- [Camille] I really didn't

notice him right off,

not until we left,

and then I didn't even dream

I'd ever see him again.

But life's funny that way.

It was the very next day, a Saturday.

We'd gone for a drive in

the hills behind Malibu.

It was really nice to get out of the city.

Suddenly there he was again,

skateboarding with some friends.

I'll take a chance on a dream

I think we can ride on together

Nothing's gonna come in between

Looking down the road

It's a beautiful feeling

The day is still so new

- [Camille] My friend was really mad.

"Damn kids," he said, and I had to laugh

'cause I was one of 'em too.

(car horn honks)

Rolling with you

Rolling with you

I'm just rolling with you

Rolling with you

I'm just rolling with you

Rolling with you, just rolling with you

Rolling with you, just rolling with you

Rolling with you, just rolling with you

- [Camille] It was pretty funny.

There was Stacy skating around

and the car wouldn't run.

Stacy didn't say anything,

he didn't have to,

but we were both laughing behind our eyes

like we were looking across

two different worlds at each other,

and I could tell Stacy

wanted out of his too.

Anyway, that's how it happened.

Skateboard meets sports

car, and the skateboard won.

- [Boyfriend] Come on, let's go.

Baby, we don't have all day.

(gentle instrumental music)

- I guess I knew I'd see

him again, but not so soon.

The very next Monday at

school, there he was,

trying to get his homework

done before class.

(gentle music)

Hi.

- Hi, how you doing?

- Oh, pretty good, what you doing?

- Some geometry work.

- [Camille] Stacy loves

bank riding best of all.

The drop is so steep.

He comes down off the
