The documentary 'BoardHeads' defines what boardriding is about, and brings to light a new awareness and appreciation for this global tribe. A boardhead is someone who rides skate, surf, snow, windsurf, wake, kitesurf or other boards on any possible surface. Starting with a history of the evolution of boardsports, the film takes you around the world and into the lives of some inspirational riders. The rugged, soulful voice of veteran actor Michael Madsen helps guide viewers on a journey into boarding culture and the empowering experiences shared by this worldwide community. From voices of pros, enthusiasts and novices, this informational and uplifting movie presents powerful life lessons. The sense of freedom one gets from being on a board and 'sharing the stoke' is echoed throughout all boardsports, giving the audience a sense of unity and community. The deeper messages are subtle using board riding as a metaphor for living a full and complete life. One of the powerful message that emerges: there is a global connection all humans share with one another whether riding a board or not. Locations include the Brisbane River in Australia; cities, mountains, lakes and beaches from Hawaii, South Africa and California, to Miami and the Caribbean...even Thailand, New Zealand and Europe. It's refreshing to see a community redefining itself to serve a greater purpose of compassion, connection and contribution to humanity. 'BoardHeads' captures this culture in an entertaining and uplifting style. Madsen's final voiceover sums things up perfectly: 'We're all just boardheads at heart!'
