—Lo único que digo—continuó Wally—es que si le bajaras un poco a la velocidad, sólo un poco, podrías hacer el salto y evitarte las heridas.
—Yo siempre hago los saltos—discutí.
—¿De qué estás hablando?
—Yo hago bien los saltos. Lo que no me sale es el aterrizaje.

Phillip vive para el skateboarding. La escuela no es m‡s que un paréntesis entre intentar un aterrizaje difícil y escapar de los guardias de seguridad. Cuando él y su mejor amigo, Wally, conocen a un patinador profesional que graba videos de sus mejores trucos para su sitio web, Phillip decide que ellos pueden hacer lo mismo y ganar un poco de dinero. Pero cuando crean una p‡gina propia y empiezan a recibir visitas (y a obtener ganancias), comienzan a sentirse presionados para hacer trucos cada vez m‡s peligrosos.

Philip lives for skateboarding. School is merely the break between trying to land a difficult jump and outrunning the security guards. When he and his best friend Wally meet a professional skateboarder who videotapes himself for his website, Philip thinks they can do it too—and make money at the same time. When they start getting hits on their website—and making money—they start to feel the pressure to do more and more dangerous stunts.
