Plot

Imagine a refrigerator box with a pair of skateboards duct-taped onto it, no brakes and no rules, and you will find the inspiration behind the ground-breaking sport of boxboarding. After a few test-runs on their new creation, the underdog duo of James (Basis) and Ty (Immekus) capture the attention of a local TV news crew, this becoming an instant hit at their high school. Seeing the potential for marketing the boxboards, the teens create a high-stakes competition where the winner will secure all rights to what might be the next hula-hoop. Joined by crazy parents, stuck up beach girls, obnoxious brothers and a group of rich kids trying to steal their idea ... not to mention a Space Vampire and a Lizard Man ... the film captures a race that gives new meaning to the word absurd.
