Whether you want to get better or want to dream about your new holiday in the snow. Snowboarding documentaries always give me the chills and lots of adrenaline. Today I share four of my favorite winter sports (snowboarding) documentaries you must see, even if you don’t like winter sportsit sure shows you how much passion and perseverance some of the main charaters in these snowboard films have.
The Crash Reel
Kevin Pearce (22) was in an accident right before New Year’s Eve 2009. He fell during a dangerous jump and got a severe brain injury which caused a ten day coma.
Before the accident, everything seemed to look good for him. He had the chance at the Olympics and scored one victory after another. The documentary follows Kevin some days before and years after the accident or years after the accident through home videos and other video and is supported by comments from colleagues and family.
would you put your life on the line for an extreme sport?
After his recovery, Kevin wants the stand on a snowboard, something his family doesn’t understand because it has many risks. What will happen if Kevin falls again?
Why would you put your life on the line for an extreme sport? But for these people it is their life. They will prefer death by doing something they like then do not take action because they are afraid. And so it is only just. Do more of what makes you happy.
The art of flight
You have to see this movie. It’s one of the best or maybe the
best snowboard documentary out there.
The shots in the movie are stunning and breathtaking and keeps me wondering How the hell did they film this? Or even better “Did he just go down there?
This documentary was filmed from the mountain, airplanes, helicopters, by Go Pros mounted on the sporters and probably through a bunch of other perspectives.
WAUW, great quality camera work. If you only love the beautiful nature, you definetely NEED to watch this ski documentary. I’ll promise you will see mountains where no one dared to set foot and I understand why.
Three meter broad paths of snow oh-my-gosh.
Also available on Netflix!
Snowboarding for me
A movie from 2014 about a few atletes who’ll take you into the world of snowboarding. Unfortunately more studio footage then real nature footage, but it doesn’t make the docu less interesting. Also quite beautiful if you prefer ski’s above snowboards, same passion right?
The little things
Another snowboard docu from 2014 which focuses on heavy environmental problems on an inspiring way. The movie makes it accessible and achievable to live a ecological responsible life.
