The best extreme sports film of 2015 is about to be released – and no, it's not the "why-did-they-do-that" remake of Point Break, but rather the latest instalment of the cult documentary series Nuit de la Glisse Tag Heuer Link Calibre 5 Replica.
Translating as 'Night Skiing', the series has evolved since it began in 1978 to cover so much more, as director Thierry Donard travels the world chasing the tallest peaks, the biggest waves and the most terrifying drops. The men and women who ski off cliffs, jump out of planes onto mountaintops and surf waves that obscure the horizon know a thing or two about pressure, and that a few seconds can make a difference between Link Calibre 5 Replica life and death. And so, supported by TAG Heuer, Donard's latest film picks up on their disruptive, avant-garde approach to life, with the theme 'Don't Crack Under Pressure'.
At this point you probably don't need to hear any more from us – just turn up the volume and watch the trailer. (Hot tip: one minute and 10 seconds in you'll see some dudes flying down Mont Blanc. Yep. Pretty sure we'd crack under that pressure.)
The film, which opens in Paris on November 27, showcases the world's best free ride skiers, snowboarders, wingsuiters, surfers and kite surfers – people who pull off feats so epic that the superlative 'extreme' barely covers it. These athletes are dwarfed by the scale and beauty of the world they live in – the world that pushes them to their limits.
