(You may wonder why I'm reviewing another Shaun White snowboarding movie -- simple, it's what our library system owns!)
Ultimate Ride is a series from Red Bull featuring their sponsored athletes. More a biopic than an actual snowboarding movie, this is Red Bull attempting to put a human face on superstar snowboarder Shaun White. This video follows White from the United States to Japan, where he rides mountains in order to become a more balanced snowboarder - winning has become too easy and he needs a new challenge. Much of the movie focuses on White as an individual, dealing with such a public life at a very young age. Kind of hard to feel too much for him, as he clearly enjoys his life and is paid handsomely for giving up most of his privacy. Kid-friendly, this is actually a pretty balanced movie, with snowboarding being only one aspect.
