Grind (2003) Plot
Alright, picture this, dude! So, we got Eric Rivers, Dustin Knight, and Matt Jensen, a bunch of skate-crazy buds who just graduated high school. They’ve got this crazy idea to hit the road and chase their dreams of becoming pro skaters. You know, like getting paid to shred those sick moves!
They hear about the legendary skater, Jimmy Wilson, coming to town on his demo tour. And they’re like, “Yo, once he sees us in action, he’ll be blown away and sign us up right away!” But guess what? Wilson’s road manager puts a major grind on their plans. They can’t even get close to the dude, let alone show off their skills.
But you know what they say, “When life gives you a wipeout, get back on your board!” So, they decide to do it their own way. They form their own skate team, and hey, Dustin’s college fund reluctantly chips in to support their adventure.
They’re not in this alone, though. They bring in “Sweet” Lou Singer, the chill ladies’ man, to join their crew and provide the wheels for their epic journey. They call themselves team Super Duper, and man, they’re in for the ride of their lives!
From Chicago to Santa Monica, they hit the open road, and let me tell you, it’s one hell of a trip! The pro skate scene ain’t exactly welcoming to newbies, but these outsiders stick together no matter what crazy misadventures come their way.
As they grind their way towards going pro, they meet some real skate legends! There’s Bucky Lasek, Bob Burnquist, Pierre Luc Gagnon, Bam Margera, and his crew with Preston Lacy, Ehren Danger McGhehey, and Jason Wee Man Acuña. And hey, let’s not forget the sexy skate chick Jamie, she’s part of the action too!
They’re out there, grinding handrails all over America, showing the world what they’ve got. And you know what? They’re forcing the skateboarding world to sit up and take notice! It’s all about chasing your passion, sticking together, and making your dreams happen. Super Duper is here to stay!

What a rad flick, dude! Grind is the name, and it’s a total blast! Back in the day, my two teenage sons were all about skating, just like I was when I was their age. We got this movie, and man, it was an instant hit! We watched it over and over again, and even now, we still get stoked and pop it in once in a while.
It’s like a timeless classic for us, you know? The story of these aspiring skaters, their dreams, and the epic journey they go on is just so inspiring. It’s all about passion, determination, and never giving up on your dreams, no matter how tough the grind gets. We totally relate to it, and it brings back some awesome memories of our skateboarding days.
If you’re into skateboarding or just love a feel-good movie with heart, this one’s a must-watch! You’ll be hooked from the first kickflip to the last ollie! Trust me, it’s a ride you won’t forget. Grind has that magic that keeps you coming back for more, no matter how many times you’ve seen it. It’s like a skater’s anthem, and we’re proud to have it in our movie collection.
