Constantly thinking the unthinkable and how to push their own limits is undoubtedly a source of intense satisfaction to these extraordinary athletes that we call “freeriders”. Most of them have become stars in their own right on the Internet where their athletic achievements are marvelled at by countless fans. Their playground: an untamed nature where many of their attempted exploits still seemed unimaginable only a couple of years ago. Pushing the limits is not just about showcasing a few dare devils rolling the dice of life, it is more about exploring the boundaries of the unknown, learn how to stretch our own limits while at the same time remaining aware of possible consequences and humble enough to let go. These athletes that constantly live on the edge show us that after all, they are also simple human beings.
Chasing through time zones, searching for the energy generated by a powerful Nature, “Pushing the Limits” recounts the stories of extraordinary people and their relationship with the elements.
