Last Paradise film photo

If you like watching cool footage of any of the following activities, you won't want to miss seeing this film: surfing, skurfing, skateboarding, hang gliding, alpine skiing, jet boating, backcountry skiing, windsurfing, sandboarding, wakeboarding, kite surfing, jet skiing, bungy jumping, river boarding, etc.

"In the extraordinary wilderness of Australia and New Zealand a bunch of daredevil kids experimented with something that would change the world of adventure travel. Through 45 years of the most stunning original footage we join the original extreme sports pioneers in an epic journey of adrenaline seeking. Their global quest for adventure takes us on the road less traveled during the  60′s and 70′s to witness firsthand the discovery of amazing paradises that few ever knew of – before they tragically disappeared. Yet the very same pioneering spirit provides the answer to turning it all around."

“Last Paradise is a dazzling adventure story told in 45 years original unseen footage restored by Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings team.”

“Tomorrow’s protectors of wilderness are the kids who play in it today”

The mission of the WKU Recreation Administration Program is to provide the students in our curriculum with a well-rounded, general education in the field of Recreation by creating a challenging, student-focused learning environment and opportunities to apply the skills and theories taught in the classroom through service to the campus, community, and recreation profession.
