Waiting for Lightning

A slickly produced, unabashedly celebratory pic about professional skateboarder Danny Way
-Joe Leydon, Variety
His story is truly an emotional rollercoaster, but it is also incredibly inspirational.
-Don Simpson, Smells Like Screen Spirit
Simply put, in skateboarding slang, this is one gnarly film.
-Noah Lee, Film Threat

Synopsis

WAITING FOR LIGHTNING is the story of Danny Way, a young boy from a broken home in Vista, CA, whose passion for skateboarding would one day bring him and his creation, a ramp of prodigious and dangerous proportions, across many cultural and ideological boundaries to attempt the impossible: jump China's Great Wall on a skateboard. It's a film about how much abuse the body can sustain, how deep you have to dig to survive the betrayals of family, and how high and far dreams can fly
