In 2003, an 11-year-old Sean Pettit burst onto the freeskiing scene. By the age of 18, Pettit was already considered to be one of the best skiers in the world. His ability to blend huge, jaw-dropping lines with innovative new school style set Sean apart as the torch bearer for the future of big mountain skiing. Now, after a full season on the sidelines recovering from an ankle injury, Sean is back on track and ready to rock with what was perhaps his most prolific season ever. Not only did Sean produce the award-winning Superproof film, "The Masquerade," and film a part for ESPN X Games "Real Ski” competition, he now presents this latest Red Bull original series, "Keep Your Tips Up."

With appearances by Callum Pettit, Richard Permin, Mark Abma, Joe Schuster and of course, the ‘Groovemeister’ (Sean’s wildly entertaining father), "Keep Your Tips Up" is an engaging and honest depiction of Sean’s life as a skier at home and around the world. Filming started last winter and took place in locations including Hokkaido, Japan; Courmayeur, Italy; Silverton, Colorado; Valdez, Alaska; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Whistler, BC.
