| First Love – Trailer |

“Skateboarding doesn’t make you a skateboarder: not being able to stop skateboarding makes you a skateboarder.”
- Lance Mountain

What is it, that keeps skateboarders trying a trick over and over again – ignoring the pain and frustration after several slams? “First Love” tries to show outsiders of the skateboard community what the fascination of this special sport is all about. But also addresses the die-hard skateboarders all around the world.
