McConkey Documentary To Be Released This Month

McConkey Documentary – Call of the Wild

Shane McConkey is the father of the rocker and reverse sidecut ski revolution. A pioneer in the big mountain ski scene, his innovations and imaginative designs echo in the hearts of ski and snowboard designers. On March 26, 2009 McConkey was tragically taken from this world in a ski-BASE jumping accident. A new documentary chronicling Shane’s prankster antics, life, mission and adventurous spirit is set to begin a national tour this month.  The Shane McConkey Foundation will be taking the film, entitled “McConkey,” on a 20-plus city tour for one night screenings.  The film project will also be available online for purchase on October 8th.

“McConkey” is a celebration of Shane’s life, a nod and thank you to his innovations in the snow action sports genre; but honestly that only scratches the surface. It’s a siren of the omni-searching adventurous spirit that lives somewhere, large or small, within us all. The film pulls on the heart strings of the free, wild soul which yearns to bark its deep, guttural barbaric yulp. Much like his skiing, “McConkey” the Movie sets the bar for all ski films and documentaries to follow. It is the absolute must see of the 2013/2014 Winter Season.
