Waiting For Lightning is the inspirational story of Danny Way, a young boy from a broken home whose passion for skateboarding would one day bring him fame and a lifetime of accomplishments. A visionary skateboarder whose love of big air in half-pipes and on gigantic ramps have garnered him fame and fans around the world, Way decides 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 challenges life presents, and how high and far dreams can fly. Danny Way has not only proven himself to be an incredibly talented skateboarder but also the sport's greatest innovator. In his quest for greatness, Way continues to shape the very sport that helped save his own life.

Waiting For Lightning features a who's who of action sports all-stars including Way, Travis Pastrana, Laird Hamilton, Tony Hawk, Rodney Mullen, Mat Hofman, Rob Dyrdek and Ken Block.

“Danny is hands down, the most influential skateboarder ever.”
- Bob Burnquist, Multiple World Record-Holder & Multiple X Games Gold Medalist

An eye-opening, compelling, inspiring story. Simply put, in skateboarding slang, this is one gnarly film.” - Noah Lee, Film Threat
