The legacy one athlete left to the progression of his sports, and the path he paved to conquer his dreams. Shane McConkey is revered as a pioneer of freeskiing and ski-BASE jumping, and through his talent and ability to use his trademark irreverent humor, he inspired countless lives. —Red Bull Media House
I saw this awesome documentary at a premiere in my hometown, and I didn't know very much about the film prior to it coming out. I tell you, this is one of those films that makes you rethink your life. I did, and I kept thinking about how one man made such a crazy impact on the world. Of course, he only revolutionized skiing, but it comes down to so much more than that. Shane McConkey is a hero and a legend. I don't think I could ever do half the stuff he did, but after watching the documentary I am completely inspired to give a lot of crazy new things a shot. Watching this in a full theater was thoroughly entertaining when the funny stuff came up. Many people were on the floor laughing from McConkey's outlandish and spontaneous behavior, and even though the movie ends on a relatively sad note, you can't help but smile when you think back on the larger-than-life personality the last hour and forty minutes entertained you with. I highly recommend this venture, especially if you're looking for gorgeous views, intense winter sports, a high-profile bio, and a great story. Also, one helluva soundtrack.
