Documentary: Wheels Over Paradise

WHEELS OVER PARADISE

Wheels Over Paradise” is the story of an outlaw group of downhill skateboarders in Santa Barbara, California, an area which attracts speed-loving skaters from around the globe. Known for its dangerous winding roads and high-speed mountain descents, the roads above Santa Barbara have become the battleground between the skaters and county law-enforcement, who have used recent accidents to justify a ban on the sport. The film follows these daring athletes as they continue to push downhill to new levels while dodging the ban, and the risk of death, on a daily basis.
