Two of Vans' finest head out into the cities of Russia in this little mini-vid behind the scenes; and dispersed amongst the road-tripping - we get to see a few of the urban bangers they've been working on along the way.

In a nice break from the usual rapid-fire edits that sate the appetites of the modern age - there's plenty of space given to each feature here.

Filmed late last season - Kalle Ohlson and Sami Luhtanen head from Moscow to Kirov, and stop along the way to make the most of one of street snowboarding's new favourite countries. Taking in derelict spots and nailing tricks for film even when the snow runs a little thin.

In a nice break from the usual rapid-fire edits that sate the appetites of the modern age - there's plenty of space given to each feature here - from Kalle's disaster sweetspot (1.41) to the bare-as-fuck 50-50 to bank (2.10) and Sami's 50-50 nollie back-three out (2.40).

As it's Friday afternoon and our brains are working at about this speed - we couldn't be more grateful for the change in pace right here, and it sounds like they're keen to come back to Kirov for more, so we'll look forward to that too.
