http://mpora.com/videos/xYptGFogZ A while back, a largely unsponsored Finnish crew called KBR Productions sent us the teasers for a film they were making this year. We were blown away by the standard of riding on show, especially given that only one of these lads is sponsored!
Today, they sent us the full-length version of their movie – and we have to say it doesn’t disappoint. They say Finland has more pro-riders per head of population than any other country in the world – based on this film, I’d have to say I’m not surprised. These boys are absolutely awesome riders (switch double backflips anyone?), and the quality of the filming (which they did themselves) is pretty damn impressive too. The only funding they received from this shoe-string operation was from a few of their local parks – Look at the “thanks” at the end of the film for proof, you’ll notice only one rider mentions any sponsors. So when these lads say they’re just a bunch of mates, they actually mean it. It’s kids like these who are really “keeping it real”, and when they say they’re doing it for the love, you know they really mean it. I know I’m practically frothing at the gash here, but stuff like this gets me excited – it’s what snowboarding should be about. Seriously, watch it, it’s worth it.
