Product Description

BluRay & DVD Combo

Waiting For Lightning is the inspirational story of Danny Way, a young boy from a broken home whose passion for skateboarding would one day bring him fame and a lifetime of accomplishments. A visionary skateboarder whose love of big air in half-pipes and on gigantic ramps have garnered him fame and fans around the world, Way decides to attempt the impossible: jump China's Great Wall on a skateboard.

It's a film about how much abuse the body can sustain, how deep you have to dig to survive the challenges life presents, and how high and far dreams can fly. Danny Way has not only proven himself to be an incredibly talented skateboarder but also the sport's greatest innovator. In his quest for greatness, Way continues to shape the very sport that helped save his own life.

Waiting For Lightning features a who's who of action sports all-stars including Way, Travis Pastrana, Laird Hamilton, Tony Hawk, Rodney Mullen, Mat Hofman, Rob Dyrdek and Ken Block. Included on the Blu-ray are over an hour of exclusive bonus features.

Was blown away. Talk about overcoming obstacles. I am not a boarder, nor into extreme sports, but was hugely encouraged by the life of Danny Way to keep going for your dreams, and above all, keep getting back up. If anyone has been through a rough time in life, and wants to throw in the towl, or just wants to watch an amazing flick about a guy doing the impossible, watch it. You won't regret it.

A great addition to the skate doc genre. Stands well next to Dogtown and Bones Brigade. Way is an engaging protagonist well drawn through interviews with those who know him. And the last act (the jump) is pretty tense.

I wish more quality films like this existed these days. If you are independent minded and you like those who think outside the box it's highly probable you won't be dissappointed.
