Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Filmmaker Matthew J. Powers directs this tale of triumph over tragedy detailing the remarkable career of professional skateboarder Jon Comer - who was hit by a car at age four and had his right leg amputated three years later. Despite this minor setback, however, Comer kept rolling on concrete, and eventually made a name for himself as one of the top skateboarders in the country. Additional interviews with such prolific professional skateboarders as Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, and Mike Vallely reveal just how much practice and hard work it takes for even the average two-legged person to master the art of street surfing, further highlighting Comer's remarkable dedication to the sport.
