||From Josh Pomer, the award winning director of The Westsides comes The Kill.
Just as Ratboy launched the very first backside 360 air, The Kill helped launch the careers of Ratboy and Flea. The Kill came onto the surfing screen stealing the limelight from southern California and shining it directly on the northern part of the state, particularly Santa Cruz.
Prior to the internet, the only way to see new surfing maneuvers was by watching the latest surf videos. The Kill includes Ratboys famous breakout performance, which took him from an unknown seventeen-year-old to the cover of Surfer Magazine.
The Johnny Boy Gomes interview would become the material of surfing lore. Pomers interview with the most intimidating surfer in the world disarmed him in a way no one had seen before. Johnny Boy casually sucks on a lollipop as he describes his workout routine. Play tennis, kickboxing and eating junks, says Johnny Boy Gomes.
