Here’s a rad little trailer for the new Nitro Snowboards team movie Hyped! which features all of the big hitters on the Nitro team including Austin Smith, Eero Ettala, Jon Kooley, Justin Bennee, Bryan Fox, Mark Swoboda, Markus Keller, Knut Eliassen, Anton Gunnarsson, Gjermund Braaten, Cheryl Maas, Benny Urban, Eric Botner and more.
It looks like Nitro have attempted to make a movie that focuses on one thing: having a good time on your snowboard. So if you’re sick of all of the overly serious, overproduced shizzle coming out of the trailer factory these days, give this one a watch. It’s got that fun, lo-fi, unpretentious feel to it and has a few replay-worthy moments in it as well. The huge alley-oop Japan McTwist hit in the pipe at 1:36 had us scratching our heads, as did the crazy double tree tap at 2:13. And don’t miss Eero Ettala almost scalping Knut Eliassen. Now he may be one of the most solid riders out there but i’d sooner swim with great white sharks than trust him to jib my head! Blunted edges or not, they could certainly still take a man’s head off…
Hyped! will be available online on October 22nd.
