Storyline

A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man dies but once. B.C. renegades race down mountain highways on customized longboards, while a middle-aged skateboarder fights to keep his Ottawa skate park and creaky knees operational. Whether it's bombing down hills at over 100km per hour, just inches from the ground, or spending 25 years and their life savings to keep competing in the sport they love, these guys are truly devoted - and a little road rash or even open-heart surgery are simply tests for the faithful. What starts out as a gonzo skate movie turns into a surprisingly heartfelt documentary that bears witness to the power of community, dedication and the DIY spirit. With intimate and candid moments that may lead you to think this is a mocumentary, Highway Gospel is a humorous and at times heartbreaking multi-character documentary that strikes an intricate balance between rowdy and insightful while serving as a reminder that heartfelt stories can also be hilarious.

What a Ride!
12 September 2013 | by JanitiSee all my reviews

I go to the movies to escape, to enter into the story, and sometimes to live a life I will never get to live in person. This flick came to the Halifax Film Festival last year, we went without expectations just because we have actually attended Attack of Danger Bay, the annual downhill longboard race, and we are acquainted with Bryson. My God!

You don't have to know anything about the sport, the people, the culture....this little gem of a movie brings you along for the hilarious and at time, poignant ride. The effort the producer made to follow this troupe for a year to create this epic film is unbelievable. It is a must-see, for the human interest, to discover a world you will have never known existed if you don't!!

What can we say about the star, Bryson Lyons. Why he isn't an international celebrity already is beyond me. A natural born killer comedian....Chelsea Handler are you listening? You need him on the round table. Writing this makes me want to go watch it again...I will!!!
