The meaning of the word D.O.P.E. in this movie stands for Death or Prison Eventually. Sounds intense, doesn’t it? You’re in luck this weekend if you happen to live anywhere near Brawley, CA. Jay Adams, Christian Hosoi, and Dennis Martinez will be present for a skateboarding demo and a full movie showing. Their main purpose is to reach out to the youth and prevent them from taking the paths they took.
Lives filled with drugs and early prison sentences are common traits between the three. They’re all reborn Christians now and are trying hard to really be better people. Regardless of the entire religious association going on between the skateboarders and the video, it all comes down to the truth. Drugs do ruin lives.
These three have been through a lot and you’ll get to hear what they’ve had to go through. Plus, you get to see Hosoi fly through the air during the demo. It would be pretty awesome to see a live “Christ Air” pulled off.
The film starts on January 17th at 6:30 and it’s an hour long. I’m assuming the skateboarding demo starts an hour beforehand at 5:00. Brawley Skatepark has a lot of tranny and vert sections in it. I’m positive it will be a gnarly demo. If you get a chance, go on out and check it. If not, word on the street is they’re actually doing this at a couple of other different places as well. Feel free to email them and maybe set something up near you!
