2013 Radical Reels Tour

I had the opportunity to check out the 2013 Radical Reels Tour hosted by the Banff Mountain Film Festival. The films featured  sports like longboarding (down a mountain), backpacking, mountain biking, kayaking, and rock climbing. However, these are extreme . Backpacking? Sure. But backpacking and mountaineering in the deep backcountry only to strap on a snowboard and glide down unmapped terrain? Crazy!

By far, the craziest video was “Rollerman” features Jean-Yves Blondeau wearing a full roller-body covered with wheels. Nuts! The most inspiring video was “La Dura Dura” featuring two rock climbing stars in competing to finish a very difficult project. This film was very well directed and a joy to watch.
