Five years ago, a now-legendary disaster led the skating paradise of San Vanelona to be evacuated, and the city was left largely in ruins. A company called Mongocorp is spearheading the reconstruction effort. But the corporation guards its private property zealously, putting a damper on the skating scene that once helped to define San Van. Now, after five years in exile, you must return to the city where you once made a name for yourself. Only by reviving your own career and working with a band of determined locals can you reinvigorate the local skate scene and take back San Van for the skaters, one spot at a time.
