Non-Fiction is from Real skateboards and Real skateboards are from San Francisco. Therefore, Non-Fiction should equal San Francisco. Not etirely true. The majority of the video is shot in S.F., but New York and other places are also featured. Non-Fiction contains street skateboarding, mini ramps and vertical ramps. Max Schaaf has vertical duties and Mark Gonzales skates both the verticals and street. The rest of the Real team stick to street and mini ramps on the surrounding time.

No complaints. The Real squad puts the pro in professional. No cruddy footage or stupid skits to callous the fast forward thumb. For the 1% that didn't already know, Gonz is good, Gonz is great. His part is no Video Days, but still makes it easy on the eyes. Non-Fiction also gives the impression that the Real team is actually a team. I say this because of the numerous shots of them riding San Francisco deep in numbers, sorta like a latter day Bones Brigade. I am not, however, saying they are a modern Bones Brigade, capeche?
