Movie 'Holding On' discovers bodyboarding's ground zero in Cronulla 

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 14 May, 2017 - Narrated by David Wenham (Blinky Bill, 300, Lord of the Rings, SeaChange), “Holding On” recounts the journey of six young men from Cronulla, who were united in the late 1980’s by the exciting new sport of bodyboarding. 

From humble beginnings and overcoming much adversity, they were labelled the Skid Kids and would gain worldwide attention for their reckless, no-holds-barred approach to surfing Shark Island, a wave previously deemed unrideable.


Driven by the desire to push the limits in both wave-riding and life, the Skid Kids revolutionised board design, created innovative competitions and became infamous for their wild antics both in and out of the water. A classic Australian coming of age story, Holding On features never-before-seen footage and a killer soundtrack supervised by Parkway Drive’s Winston McCall.
