makes pipeline surfers look like wimps.
9 March 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

There's extreme sports and then there are these guys, they just set the bar so high. Only sky skiing behind the space shuttle could put them in the shade. The photography is awesome but the unbelievable tenacity in the face of such a hostile environment coupled with a matter-fact commentary in a German accent can only be described as a mental defect or simply German. Try and see it up big and certainly Hi-Def, if you want edge of the seat stuff, then this is the film for you. It captures something I have never seen before in a documentary, it is incredible, it is insane, it is the first film I have ever seen where I needed a drink after!
