DOCUMENTARY: McConkey (2013)


McConkey (2013)

I love this documentary on so many levels. I have already watched it 9 or 10 times. Shane McConkey absolutely innovated and changed the world of extreme skiing. He then fell in love with BASE jumping and combined the two sports further innovating and leaving his mark on the thrill seeking world.

This is a bigger story though capturing what it means to follow your passions and live your life to the fullest even though his was cut short due to the very passions he followed. Add to this bigger than life documentary some of the most incredible outdoor action footage ever shot and cut with great music.

This movie gives a wonderful glimpse into the thrill seeking world like no other. Having tasted a little bit of this world during my active years of skydiving, I just can’t get enough of this film. Some view his story as a tragedy with the accident that claimed his life. Those in the thrill seeking world understand his story is a wonderful one of following his dreams and living life to the fullest doing exactly what he wanted to do more than anything else in the world.

You don’t want to miss this incredible full length documentary. I will re visit this film over and over!
