Random (Not) Venice Beach Video: The Devil’s Toy


If you skateboard, peep “The Devil’s Toy” for some laughs. If you are a DJ / visual artist, make a copy to add images into your show! If you sit inside on Twitter all day long obsessing about skateboarders … remember … “the youth of the world is on the move, and their aim is to take over”.

Directed by Claude Jutra, this 1966 film depicts the dawn of skateboarding in Montreal, an activity frowned upon by police and adults. The film was the first Canadian documentary ever made about skateboarding.
