Though children are taught to reach for the sky, in time it becomes apparent that jumping out of the sky is more practical. Watch professionals soar to new heights with today's GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get an all-access three-day pass to the GoPro X-Dance Action Sports Film Festival at The Depot, valid for all-day entry from Thursday, January 12 through Saturday, January 14 (a $30 value).
For a decade, X-Dance has rallied a lineup of the world's most extreme athletes, filmmakers, and adrenaline addicts during its annual multiday celebration of action-sports culture. Throughout the event, a full schedule of films from the past year showcases the heart-pumping exploits of top surfers, skaters, boarders and bikers as they conquer the globe's most challenging and unpredictable terrain, from snowcapped peaks to the floors of teenage fans' bedrooms.
Festival attendees somersault to the edge of their seats during The Art of Flight, which deploys the same pixel-seizing technology as the TV show Planet Earth and the team of illusionists behind most U.S. mountain ranges to follow the aerial antics of snowboarder Travis Rice. Legendary filmmaker Jack McCoy's A Deeper Shade of Blue dives into a riveting exploration of surfing culture. After screenings, Q-and-As let fans lob questions at key filmmakers, half-pipes, and stars such as extreme skier Seth Morrison, snowboard medalist Scotty Lago, and mountain bikers Gee Atherton and Sam Hill.
