Documentary on the genesis of extreme sports

If you’re into extreme sports, you should’ve been born Kiwi filmmaker Clive Neeson, who has spent the past 45 years roaming the globe, documenting the genesis of such wild pursuits as wake-boarding, extreme skiing, para-surfing and bungee jumping (starting with an illegal jump from the Eiffel Tower).

He’s put together this amazing collection of vintage footage of himself and his group of similarly insane mates he claims (and backs up) were instrumental in the creation of some of these sports. And he rounds it out with a look at the environmental damage being done to some of his old sporting grounds. (100 min)
