Recently matchstickproductions published a bunch of video segments of their amazing freeski movies. i recommend them all. the whole movies are even better of course…

you can watch them here:

msp on youtube

i especially recommend the Shane McConkey tribute. he certainly was one of THE action sports heroes of our time:

Shane McConkey “IN DEEP, the skiing experience”

compilations

The “GoPro” is a camera especially designed for action sports. but see for yourself as here are the

GoPro 2010 Highlights

I’ve already mentioned “SuperStoker” before, a site the collects various videos featuring all kinds of  “extreme sports” (does that sound familiar?).  This is their 2010 edit:

Ich weiß jetzt nicht genau ob das einer der Rider in “Seven Sunny Days” oder “Claim” gesagt hat (beides sehr sehr empfehlenswerte freeski-filme von matchstick productions, ausschnitte davon auch in DIESEM famosen musikvideo, unbedingt bis 3:36 ansehen!), aber jedenfalls fasst es sehr schön zusammen, was  alle “freien” bzw. freestyle-sportarten unter anderem ausmacht.

Videos die diesen lifestyle und spaß besonders gut transportieren (im freerunning), sind zb Out Of Time von und mit der truppe rund um Oleg Vorslav, oder auch Summer Daze, oder auch DAS hier (feat. einige der bekannten freerunning helden, wie zb tim shieff oder danny ilabaca)…
