Created by Chris Schasse and James Wagner, The Break Side documents the players and culture of Ultimate Frisbe, traveling through nine states across the Western U.S., including Arizona.

Since filming their Kickstarter-funded journey in 2013, Schasse and Wagner have turned to video editor Scott Kunkel to release weekly episodes of each stop along the tour.
Following last week's "Episode Three: Flagstaff", and the prior week's "Episode Two: Grand Canyon", a new episode debuts Tuesday, February 11, and showcases some of Phoenix's finest Ultimate Frisbee players, including ASU Alum Ashley Stahl, who, in addition to showing off her talent on the field, also shares some of her flute beat boxing skills.
The episode premiers at 7 p.m. CST on The Break Side website. For a look back at past episodes and preview of upcoming shows, visit thebreakside.com.
