All.I.Can JP Auclair Street Segment
JP Auclair teams up with Sherpas Cinema in this short, mind-blowing segment from the 2011 Powder Magazine Movie of the Year All.I.Can to tame the mean streets of British Columbia on skis. You might have seen this footage on your computer, but check it out on the big screen.
In August 2011, Tahiti was hit with a massive swell that created 20-foot-plus waves and forced the authorities to declare “code red,” which shut down Teahupoo to surfing. Of course, with huge waves thundering, a few brave souls saw not risk, but opportunity.
I Believe I Can Fly
Count on the French for the latest invention in the realm of highlining, speedflying and, er, line jumping? Whatever you call this cross between highlining, bungee jumping and BASE jumping that filmmaker Seb Montaz-Rosset highlights in this teaser of I Believe I Can Fly (Flight of the Frenchies), it certainly is crazy. And entertaining. As onlookers watch in terror, the Frenchmen have us convinced, if only for a moment, that they can truly fly.
There seems to be no end to what Danny MacAskill can do on a trials bike, whether it be on the streets of Dunvegan, Scotland, or in an abandoned industrial train yard.

Shot entirely during what’s called the “magic hour,” cinematographer and editor Ben Sturgulewski of Sweetgrass Productions takes us on a self-powered, all-you-can-shred spine buffett in Haines, Alaska, with skiers Stephan Drake, Forrest Shearer and Johan Jonsson.
Race for the Nose
The boys from Senders Films know how to make climbing films — and this is a fine example of their work as Dean Potter and Hans Florine ascend the Nose at El Capitan in an attempt to set a new speed record — again.
Racing the End
Bike racing in Los Angeles, California? No way. There are too many cars. This may be the illest road race on the planet. Legality is questionable and trying to hold the wheel of the fixie in front might mean a pre-dawn, clandestine and completely certifiable victory. There is no way those dog tags are leaving L.A.

Telluride’s own Felt Soul Media teamed up with Nick Waggoner and Yuki Mayazaki of Sweetgrass Productions to track a wild unicorn in Hokkaido, Japan. But all they found was delicious ramen — and deep, sweet snow.
