Contains innuendos, some references to female breasts, banging and getting laid, implied sex, and make-out sessions. Two sets of teenagers start making out and start to undress but are interrupted. No sex or nudity actually shown. (some of this may only be in the unrated extended cut)

a man grabs a boy and punches him and kicks him several times while he is on the ground, and the boy hits the man in the head with a skateboard. Two teenage boys run into each other, they shove each other, then punch each other in the face; one falls to the ground and is seen in a hospital bed with a bandage over his eye (we see him with a scar across his eye lid later and hear that he needs to have surgery). A teenage boy punches a man in the face after he confronts him and disqualifies him from a competition; then two men shove and threaten each other. A man is thrown through a window and lands on a street, many other men rush out into the street, and what seems like a fight ensues -- it's not clear, and they could be merely slam dancing. A teenage boy throws food at a man in a restaurant, the man lunges and grabs the boy, and another man intervenes and they fight and throw food back and forth. A man shoves food in the face of a teenage boy. A man smacks his son on the head and yells at him. A teenage boy falls off of his skateboard, rolls on the ground and appears to have hurt his arm; another boy jumps over him, crashes into a garbage can and falls on the ground. A man shoves three teenage boys around, threatens them and forces them to do tasks (picking up garbage, etc.). A man with a golf club chases several teenage boys who skateboard in his swimming pool, the boys run, one throws a tennis ball and hits the man in the head. Teenage boys run when police arrive, and the police try to grab the boys. Several teenage boys sneak out of their homes very early in the morning and ride their skateboards along streets; one races down a hill toward an intersection and through it just as oncoming cars are stopped by a red light. Several teenage boys break a store window, the alarm rings, the police chase them, and they race away on their skateboards. Three teenage boys hold onto the bumper of a bus and are pulled along a street, the bus driver swerves back and forth in an effort to get rid of them, and the boys let go and skate along the street. Teenage boys try to skateboard in an empty swimming pool and they fall several times. Teenage boys fall off their skateboards in several scenes but they are not seriously injured. Several men surf in rough water near a pier and through the pillars that support the pier, and one of the men runs into a pillar, falls off of his board and into the water (we see him with a cut on his cheek). A teenage boy falls from the peak of a wave into the water. A man wakes up and yells, "I'll rip your head off" at a teenage boy, and the boy says, "You're not in Nam." A man threatens to, "rip them off your backs" (talking about t-shirts). A teenage boy uses a knife and stabs a surfboard repeatedly, steps on the board and breaks it in half. A drunken man throws many surfboards off a roof, they crash to the ground and break in half. A teenage boy throws a rock into a car windshield shattering it. A building on a pier burns to rubble. A man steals something from a convenience store (it could be food). A man intimidates another man into leaving a store since he doesn't plan to buy anything. Two cars are driven recklessly.
