|Lucy Walker - Director of |
Award-winning documentarian Lucy Walker's The Crash Reel follows the rise, fall and recovery of snowboarder Kevin Pearce.
This in not just another action sports film. It is a deeply felt, fully realized telling of an inspirational human saga. Pearce was challenging Shaun White for dominance in the half pipe when he took a bad fall in the halkpipe - the technical name is "Face Plant". This is not an injury an athlete can come back from, but Pearce, with the support of family, friends and the entire snowboarding community, was able to redefine himself and move on with his life. The Crash Reel tells that story. Lauren Traub Teton interviewed Ms. Walker at HBO Headquarters in NY for RadxSports.com.
|Kevin Pearce on The Crash Reel , interviewed by Lauren Teton at HBO|
HBO's documentary "The Crash Reel" tells the story of snowboarder Kevin Pearce's horrific crash on a practice run in preparation for the 2010 Olympics and his struggle to recover from the Tramautic Brain Injury he suffered.
This is a moving story of how family, friends and community come together to help a fallen star in great need, and how the wounded star adapts, changes his perspective on life and returns the favor. It's more than an action sports film. I give it 10 stars.

|Nick Goepper Interview - X Games 2013 Men's Ski Slopestyle Gold Medalist |
Super nice guy Nick Goepper explains his winning runs that brought him the gold in X Games 2013 Ski Slopestyle, as we interview him at Mount Snow, VT, along with Carinthia Park Manager Day Franzen. Mount Snow was the site of Goepper's first contest win, back when he was 14 years old.
ESPN reported: "Goepper's technical mastery was evident at all points through his run. His rail sections were clean and varied, and he spun all four ways -- forward and switch, right and left -- on his jumps: double cork 1080, rightside double cork 1260 tail, switch left double cork 1080 Japan, switch double misty 1260."
So that's what you call them!
