The anime is about Reki, a sophomore who enjoys skateboarding. One day he is trapped in "S", a dangerous, no-rules skateboard race that takes place in an abandoned mine.
Ranga, who returned to Japan after spending some time in Canada and has never skated before, wraps himself in an "S" with Reki.
The plot will introduce us to different types of participants in these races, ranging from beginners to dirty players to artificial intelligence skaters!
