Storyline

This story is based where the skateboard culture is the most foreign, the Midwest. Derrick Cabrera, like all skaters, has a dream of being sponsored and one day going pro. He is an up and coming skater with all the talent but has the world against him. Parents, friends and schoolmates can't understand how Derrick has so much passion for something that has no future in their eyes. His crew of friends that are skaters is the only place he is truly accepted. But, as he gets better and better, the skater he looked up to the most becomes his worst enemy. In the sport of skateboarding a single trick that has never been done or conceived can bring you stardom in an instant. Derrick has that trick, if only he can make it. As he attempts to make this trick he is faced with skateproofing, a jealous friend and cops who have it in for him. Derrick finally gets arrested for skating on private property. After that his parents lay down the law and try to force him to quit skateboarding. Adding ... Written by Rob Dyrdek

Fantastic Film, a must for skaters.
21 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lots of tricks, lots of drama, and lots of swearing!! This film is a perfect movie for skaters and even none skaters alike to enjoy. Great acting by Paul Rodriguez and Ryann Dunn. The jokes that Ryan Dunn cracks are just hilarious and witty. Not a perfect 10/10 score for me, but a lot higher than this site gives it for sure. The story was great and it actually came to a conclusion properly and didn't lose track of itself. I felt angry and sad for Paul Rodriguez's character in quite a few scenes. I did not like Rob Dyrdek's role, i thought it was annoying, and he is not an actor, But a great skateboarder none the less. The acting from the father of Derek (paul Rodriguez) was the best acting in the film. A 8 out of 10 for me, great film, and easily watchable to the end and keeps you engrossed in the story.
