"Superheroes of Stoke" honors the heroes who have made the sport of freeskiing what it is today and pays tribute to the heroes who gave their lives for what they loved. Throughout 2012, MSP's film crews relentlessly traveled the globe in search of the moments that would define the cutting-edge of what is possible on skis. Highlights from 19 years worth of archived material have been edited amidst stunning new HD footage to demonstrate how far the athletes have progressed and how far boundaries have been pushed.
This film features an all-star cast of heroes: Richard Permin, Mark Abma, James Heim, Sean Pettit, Jacob Wester, Cody Townsend, Ingrid Backstrom, Russ Henshaw, Eric Hjorleifson, Michelle Parker, PK Hunder, Riley Leboe, Gus Kenworthy, Logan Pehota, Sam Anthamatten, Leo Ahrens, and Aidan Sheahan. Also featuring legendary cameos from earlier generations of the MSP universe: Shane McConkey, Seth Morrison, Wendy Fisher, JP Auclair, Mike Douglas, CR Johnson, Tanner Hall, Eric Pollard, Hugo Harrisson, Sarah Burke, and many more.
