Though young viewers may not catch all the major plot points, they'll no doubt enjoy the action-packed dirt mountain boarding scenes.
There's a developing crush between two teen characters, but it doesn't generate any physical contact. Teen boys occasionally send suggestive looks girls' ways.
Dirt boarding scenes feature a few spills, including one that results in a fractured arm.
Nothing iffy, but lots of extreme-sport slang like "sic" and "gnarly."
