Eight skaterboarders living in a run-down East Vancouver house set out to make “the ultimate skater video.” Their real lives, tricks and pranks play out while they shoot their video and learn that “the summer of your life” doesn’t come without a few lessons in humility. Living the high life, landing tricks, evading security guards and going on a raucous road trip through the wilds of British Columbia fill their days, while evading motel managers and taking part in East Vancouver skate park hijinks consume their nights. Sometimes you land the trick. Sometimes it lands you… Hard! The cast is made up of non-actors and the film is a hybrid of skate doc and subculture drama.
