This movie was the brain child of Hampus Mosesson, Jakob Whilhelmson, and Per-Hampus Stålhandske. I love the fact that its yet another free snowboard movie and you can read about it on the Action Horse website. I’ve been so stoked for this movie to come out and now that its here and I’ve finally gotten to view it I’m glad I did.
Here’s my thoughts on the riding in it. You’ll notice a lot of Scandinavian riders in it and these guys destroy it. This is some serious snowboard progression at its finest. A backflip up a kinked street rail, come on man thats seriously insane.
The intro to the movie is funny with a weird horse costume guy being all alone with no friends and farm animals scared of him. Frankly I’d be a bit scared of him too. Then it starts off with a lot of urban riding from the land of the norse men with riders Jakob, Hampus, Eiki Helgason, Gulli Gudmandson, and a brief shot of Eero Ettala. You’ll notice a few shots used in Double Decade which frankly people come on now I’m sick of this shit. The second section takes you to the Utah backcountry with Knut Eliason, Jakob, Hampus, and Stian Solberg. The last shot of Stian spinning off the big cliff is really sick. Part three shows them lapping park at Park City and Bear Mountain. Knut and Hampus at Park City is pretty amusing when they’re playing around on the mini jibs. Judging by Eero and Jakobs flipping skills the straight front flip and back flip is a new staple in park riding, evidently I’ve got to up my game with that trick. Jakob keeps getting broke off in the Bears park and its hilarious what he’s trying to do on the mini jibs. *Note to self ride Bear Mountain at some point in my life* Once again far more progression. Stian goes off a jump throws a backflip completely unstrapped kicks the board out and comes down on another board and rides away. After the shenanigans at Bear they head over to Bachelor to hit park jumps with pow landings. This is where Austin Smith comes in and starts slaying some jumps. The mini rythm section is reminiscent of Bike Car and funny to see like 7 guys hitting it at once. Pat Moore also drops in with them and throws down some of the coolest spins I’ve seen in a long time. When they get done getting crazy at Bachelor they head to Tahoe and destroy the backcountry there along with a bunch of killer park sequences. From the U.S they head back to summer riding in Norway up on Folgefonna. While there its just a bunch of fun mini shred stuff nothing super crazy but a few bigger hits thrown in for good measure.
All in all its a good movie with a few progressive shots in it. The soundtrack licked donkey taint and whoevers idea it was to have that crap in it should be curb stomped. Would I recommend this movie to friends, hell yeah its free and has some sick ass shots in it. Watch here and enjoy it
