The Crash Reel
by Pedro Kos [DVD 796.939 Cra]
This documentary includes 15 years worth of footage of snowboarders Kevin Pearce and Shaun White and their growing rivalry. They always finished in first and second but everything changed after Kevin crashed and suffered a traumatic brain injury. While it does talk a little bit about their rivalry it mostly focuses on Kevin's accident, recovery, and then undying urge to get back on his board even though one more fall could kill or paralyze him. -- recommended by Carrie K. - Bennett Martin Public Library [ See Carrie's Reviewer Profile ]
[If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try other snowboarding documentaries such as Warren Miller's Higher Ground or books about the sport.]
