To The Ends Of
The Earth

THE ACTION SPORTS INDUSTRY IS GROWING RAPIDLY WORLDWIDE. THROUGH A RECENT STUDY CONDUCTED BY THE USA TODAY, THEY FOUND THAT CURRENTLY IN THE UNITED STATES THERE ARE MORE CHILDREN BETWEEN THE AGES OF 7-18 SKATEBOARDING THAN THERE ARE PLAYING LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL. IN COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD LIKE NICARAGUA, COSTA RICA, AND JAPAN THE ACTION SPORTS CULTURE IS growing exponentially!


Currently there are an estimated 120,000,000 Surfers, Skaters, Wakeboarders, and Snowboarders worldwide.


Our hope is that this film reaches them all!
