The Birth of Big Air


The Birth of Big Air

1 August 2010 / Posted by Brett Phillips

Get ready gravity freaks. This is going to be bigger than the opening night of Helltrack back in 86! If you grew up with being blown away by Matt and wondering if you could ever come to terms with watching his backflip for the first time, then you are going to love The Birth of Big Air.

In 1985, at the tender age of 13, Mat Hoffman entered into the BMX circuit as an amateur. By 16, he had risen to the professional level. Throughout his storied career, Hoffman has ignored conventional limitations and pushed the boundaries of gravity. Academy Award® nominee Spike Jonze and extreme sport fanatic Johnny Knoxville, along with director Jeff Tremaine, showcase the inner workings and exploits of the man who gave birth to "Big Air.
