Amazing scenery, fantastic insight into their world
2 October 2011 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The cinematography of this film is amazing. Fantastic scenes, the distant views are brilliant, fantastic slow-motion shots. It starts with a journey of small cliffs gradually taking you to some of the most dangerous conditions that these guys snow board in.

It shows what these guys really live for and why they do it. There is not much of a story this is a 'point and view' documentary about the lives of a few pro snow boarders. Very little is said in this documentary and it fits perfectly well.

It certainly gives an insight to viewers about the sort of risks they take for the adrenalin rushes these guys need to feel alive.

This is an amazing view in high definition.
