Phillip vive para el skateboarding. La escuela no es m?s que un par?ntesis entre intentar un aterrizaje dif?cil y escapar de los guardias de seguridad. Cuando ?l 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.
