SnowBrains | | Movie TrailerMovie Trailer

What we have to ask ourselves is:  “Is it worth dying for?”

Is it?  It might be.  It totally depends on your perspective and where you are in your individual sport.

Have we taken it all too far?

Are sponsors to blame for making money off the injuries and deaths of the athletes they support?

Or, is this just the natural progression of human nature?

Human has always risked injury and death to see what is around the next corner.  We’ve always pushed the envelope and we’ve always paid high prices for that curiosity.  For that thrill.  For that desire to see what else is out there.

“The Search for Freedom” is a new movie coming out that appears to be supporting the behavior of the most extreme athletes in the world and the risks they take.  The movie looks like it’ll be fascinating especially since some of our hero are in it:  Kelly Slater, Shane McConkey, Jeremy Jone.

“THE SEARCH FOR FREEDOM is the story of a cultural revolution fueled by the human desire to live in the moment and do what makes you feel the most alive. We discover how an electrifying new world came about through pure energy and imagination and the infinite possibilities of self-expression available to anyone willing to drop in. This documentary, written and directed by Jon Long (IMAX® Extreme), is a visceral, visual experience told through the eyes some of the brightest pioneers, legends, visionaries and champions of surfing, snowboarding, skiing, skateboarding, mountain biking and more.” – Search for Freedom
