SK8 the Infinity Spoilers
High school student Reki is obsessed with skating. He is especially interested in “S,” an underground race that challenges even the experienced skateboarders because of its venue, an abandoned, sloping mine. As the skateboarders get together to prove their superiority, old enmities are often rekindled, and new feuds start to take shape. Langa, who is an exchange student, has come back to Japan after spending considerable time abroad. Reki takes Langa to the mine to introduce the latter to his world. The first exposure proves to be enough, as Langa develops an insatiable interest in the sport.
