In the episode produced by Sweetgrass Productions viewers go behind the scenes with the crew as they set out to redefine the action sports genre; A physically and mentally demanding production, this piece was shot during the midnight hours over 3 tedious production cycles. The film crew and world renowned ski, mountain bike and surf athletes traveled the world to capture action sports in remote locations including Dubai, the Maldives, Alaska, British Columbia, Utah and Oregon. Thousands of pounds of camera and lighting gear was slogged, rigged, soldered, hung and broken down each night. Unlike anything ever seen before in the world of Action Sports, the project features arrestingly beautiful landscapes, world class riding, and outstanding cinematography.

“We went to New York for the free drinks and walked away with an Emmy! I guess we can mark that one off the life bucket list…”
