Directed by Nicola Marsh and Giovanni Reda, Stay on Board: The Leo Baker Story premiered at Outfest film festival, and will be released on Netflix on August 11, 2022.
The documentary is a raw and immersive feature film that follows competitive skateboarding icon Leo Baker in the lead up to the 2020 Olympics. As he faces the sharpening stakes and intensifying disconnect between how the world sees him and who he knows himself to be, the pressure to keep on the course or be true to himself comes to a career and life-defining turning point. Stay on Board is Leo’s journey balancing the gendered world of sports, transition, society, and skate culture, which ultimately leads him to the punkest thing imaginable.
