Storyline

Andy "Brink" Brinker and his in-line skating crew--Peter, Jordy, and Gabriella--who call themselves "Soul-Skaters" (which means they skate for the fun of it, and not for the money), clash with a group of sponsored skaters, Team X-Bladz--led by Val--with whom they attend high school in southern California. When Brink discovers his family is in financial trouble, he goes against the wishes of his parents and his friends and joins Team X-Bladz. Brink tries to lead a double life but will be able to pull it off? Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Before the first downhill race, there's a close-up of Gabriella as she speaks to Brink. In it, her helmet is buckled. In the next shot when she takes off, her helmet is visibly unbuckled. In the shot after that when she tucks down, her helmet is buckled again. See more »

Quotes

[Brink is late]
Peter: He'll be here. He said he'd be here.
Jordi: Maybe something happened to him. Like maybe he got hit by a car. Or maybe his dad's back starting acting up and they had to rush him to the hospital.
Gabriella: Or maybe he got kidnapped by aliens.
Jordi: Don't joke. That happened to one of my uncles.

A Family Favorite
5 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been watching and enjoying Brink with my family since I was 10 years old in 1998. It's a favorite of mine and my family and it always will be. I think anyone who enjoys underdog stories will like this one and they should definitely check it out. It's for sure one of the Disney Channel's best releases.

Erik von Detten is great in his part, as well as Patrick Levis, Sam Horrigan and everyone else. The story is very simple but also very fun and light hearted. I also should mention that I really enjoyed the soundtrack to this one as I am a big punk and ska fan. Check this one out with your whole family if you can get a hold of it.
