Behind The Trick with Chris Sörman

Here’s some more behind the scenes footage from the filming of Pirate Movie Production’s new one Unique 8. Last time we were treated to a behind the spot wepisode with Gigi Rüf at the famous beaver dam jump and this time we get a look at what goes into stomping a backcountry banger with Chris Sörman.
