Here the player meets Mindy, who tells the player that they need to sort their clothes and hair out, which are making them stand out as an outsider at the moment.
The player then changes his hair and clothes, and meets two local skaters, Ian and Duane, who introduce new tricks to the player and advance the player's skills. The player sees Mindy drawing and finds out that she is a talented artist. Her sketches are going to be featured in her skating magazine, named American Wasteland.
However, Mindy hasn't gathered enough money to fund the project yet, but the player assures her it will happen. She has sketched something that catches the player's eye. The player proceeds to ask what the place is and Mindy says it is a "sick spot that you would absolutely love," but then tells the player that the spot is exclusive to local skaters.
The player then pleads with her to get them in, to which Mindy agrees. However, the skate park is in Beverly Hills , and the passage to Beverly Hills is blocked by a protest against poor treatment of sheep. The player ends the protest by destroying a huge dinosaur head model that is on top of a movie theatre, which smashes into the protest.
You arrive in Beverly Hills and go outside a place called the " Skate Ranch ," which is where the place in Mindy 's sketchbook is. Mindy 's skater friends, Boone , a bald man who goes for extreme jumps and gaps, but usually bails. Useless Dave , a short man who is "the encyclopedia of useless skateboarding trivia", and Murphy , a tall, sarcastic type who has an endless array of contacts and friends all over LA , and is always on his cell phone.
He won't let you go into the ranch, unless you can keep up with their skating skills. You have to learn their performed tricks and then show them to them to prove yourself worthy of going in the ranch. Gaining their approval, you are let into the ranch, and meet the leader of the group, Iggy Van Zandt , a very rough type, who isn't fond of outsiders. He will let you crash at the ranch if you obtain some wood for a vert ramp he is building.
When you do, the vert ramp is set-up, which spurs the group to do the ranch up and make it a full-on skatepark. With the help of Murphy 's contacts, you and the group embark on obtaining skate-able pieces from all over LA , the first being the destroyed dinosaur head you made earlier on.

So you then meet skating legend Tony Alva, from who you find out that Iggy's skate ranch is actually " Green Pipes Point ," a legendary snake run that got leveled many years ago.
You decide it has to be dug up, and befriend Alva's friend Mega, who runs an oil rig just off Santa Monica. He recently dropped out of the gang but was jumped and is now missing in East LA. You join the Widows by impressing them with your spray painting, skating and BMX skills to get to East LA and save Boone , who was trapped in a sewer pipe. After some time, you get a phone call from Iggy in jail, who explains his bail will be with him shortly.
You tell him you found out about Green Pipes Point and that it is being dug up, expecting an ecstatic response from Iggy. However, Iggy hates what you have done, because he didn't own the land, and if "the owner finds out what a badass skatepark he has, he'll cash in on the place. Shortly after, you receive a text message from Mega saying that stuff is happening at the ranch. Upon arriving in Beverly Hills , the game cuts to a news report, which is about the revival of Green Pipes Point , showing pros and locals being very happy.
Outside the ranch, you see the owner, Shapiro , in an expensive car, and ask why he sold it, being so legendary. The soon-to-be-ex owner doesn't care, and rides off with a snobbish attitude, pleased of his new money.
Iggy arrives with a baseball bat, and starts hitting the ranch's gate in rage. You try to apologize, but it doesn't matter to Iggy. Iggy says that it'll never be his place thanks to you. You seem to snap, and tell him that "It could've been if you hadn't been sitting on your ass all these years waiting for someone else to bail you out! You, Murphy , Dave and Boone decide to start a project to save the ranch, by making a skate video featuring famous pros, with all the proceeds going to Green Pipes Point.
You then round up many pros, impressing them with your skills to convince them to feature in the video. Whilst in East LA ready to demo, film and add skate pieces for the ranch from a bust casino, Iggy arrives, and you two reconcile.
