Though widely known for his ridiculous stunts and juvenile pranks, Johnny Knoxville has made the majority of his millions as a producer of some pretty acclaimed films over the last half decade or so, and Being Evel looks like it could be his best yet. An inside look at America's foremost stuntman, Evel Knievel—who modern spectacle masters like Red Bull and Nitro Circus borrow from with reverent abandon—this one, following a Sundance appearance earlier this year, is set for a theatrical release next month, so make sure to check it out.
Let's cut straight to the chase: If you want to hear NJ BMX legend-to-be Scotty Cranmer discuss the origins of his BMX career, then tune in for the first 2 and a half minutes of this one. If you just want to see hime shred his face off, however, then skip right to the 3-minute mark, where the hammers start flying fast and loose. Whatever you choose, however, make sure to tune in for that ender, which is unsurprisingly insane.

Fishing is one of our country's greatest pastimes and nothing embodies that fact like an epic Salmon run in the wilds of the American west. Unfortunately, such havens are flowing rapidly toward extinction, as Patagonia and their new documentary, Free the Snake—which chronicles the efforts of a dedicated group of conservationists to return the Snake River its once-great glory—make abundantly clear. Check it out and then get out there and help preserve your local waters from suffering a similar fate.

Jett may only be 1-and-a-half, but he's already hitting hills pretty hard on a longboard. Granted, he does benefit from having a dad who is the head of R&D at Braden Boards...
Jared built this attachment to a board so he can bring Jett along with him, and Jett's been riding with his dad since he was only 6 months old. Wonder how good Jett will be by the old age of 5...
