Z-Boys Skateboarder Chris Cahill Dies at 54

LA Cahill Del Mar 1975.jpg My friend and L.A. Times Daily Mirror partner Keith Thursby has an obituary on Chris Cahill, a member of the Dogtown Z-Boys skateboarders.

Keith says: The Z-Boys, originally 11 boys and a girl, were the subject of the 2001 documentary “Dogtown and Z-Boys” and their story was fictionalized in the 2005 film “Lords of Dogtown.” The documentary, co-written and directed by Z-Boy Stacy Peralta, only briefly mentions Cahill, saying he had been last seen in Mexico.
