Abel brings his brother, Theo, to Grange Hill for his first day with Theo's confident friend, Laxo.

Skateboards are banned at Grange Hill by Mr McDonnell, however, a skateboard superhero is born, dubbed as Boarderman. Abel tells his brother and his friends that people reckon they know who boarderman is and he reveals that they think it is XS.

XS says that he isn't confirming if he is or isn't boarderman and Abel reckons that XS could have started the rumour himself. Abel, Jenny Young and Jake Briggs rally round XS for him to do another stunt. However, the identity of boarderman is revealed and he happens to be Abel's brother.

On the last day of term, Abel, Togger and Tanya reminisce about their days at Grange Hill. Togger is on the verge of quitting school, but Tanya tells Abel there is one person he will listen to-his uncle, Tucker Jenkins.
