    This new century has become fertile in producing documentaries about the best in extreme sports. We have Laird Hamilton's career in detail. The whole history of Parkour, and now Tricking. Felix Baumgartner's skydive is also documented, as well as the progression of skateboarding and surf. Chris Sharma is on film and recently Meru was released. This is a great tribute to a sport that I was yet to discover.
