Extreme captures some of the best athletes in the world as they challenge the most intimidating forces of nature. Skiing on perilous mountain peaks; snowboarding through untouched powder fields; climbing up frozen waterfalls; scaling magnificent red-rock spires; surfing some of the largest waves ever; and windsurfing behind El Nino strength winds, this film takes audiences on an unimaginable adventure.
Extreme shares first-hand an understanding of those who have made their passion a lifestyle and provides a unique glimpse into the relationship between nature and humanity - of an earth at its most surreal and athletes who continuously strive to feel her magnanimous, powerful shapes. Powerful music and heartfelt narration by the athletes themselves complement once-in-a-lifetime footage to put the audience on the edge of their seats.
