The Shaun Palmer biopic has finally been made, and received accolades at the XDance Festival, but they're looking for donations to a Kickstarter fundraiser to help get the movie out to more people via DVD. Check the trailer and the info you'll need if you want to help out...

Palmer's one of the legends of the sport, and from the teaser it looks like this'll be a no-holds-barred account of the career of one of snowboarding's biggest characters. As much as Palmer was a hellraiser, he was also a supremely talented and stylish rider who also possessed and unquenchable thirst for winning. And he also excelled at several other sports too - there's a good argument for him being one of the greatest athletes ever.

Here's the lowdown from the production company's mouth...
