BEFORE TONY HAWK, THERE WAS MARTINEZ


360's and fakies were sepcialties of Dennis Martinez, champion skateboarder and legend in the sport, who in the 70's was doing commercials for Pepsi and 7Up, touring the country and skating professionally alongside legends like Stacy Peralta, Pineapple, Tony Alva and Jay Adams.
Dennis had a long run with Coccaine and rockstarlike fame and fortune, "I thought it made me skate better 'cause I felt like I had no fear. I had to skate high, not just a little high, I'm talking extremely high. Even at the U.S. Championship in Florida, I probably did $300 worth of dope before the competition." When he sold his beloved World Championship cup for $500 worth of dope, the tailspin was hitting him. "Four friends murdered and one serving a 678-year sentence." Join us as we find out how Dennis went from fame and fortune, to addiction and destruction, rock bottom prison that turned to into a life of joy, purpose and fame in a whole new way.
