Ski season is just starting and most people are dreaming about mountains and powder rather than the beach. However, local Vancouver based company Kyda Creations just released their full length 2011 skim movie for free online. Although im an avid skimmer i sometimes find it tough to watch long skim movies due the lack of trick variety in this growing sport. This was not the case in Insufficient funds, which lasts just over 40 minutes and features progressive riding from some of skimboardings best riders . The movie was mostly filmed in the tidal pools surrounding Van city but also features some sessions on Van. Island and Hornby. If you not familiar with this new company you can check out their other videos on their youtube channel and buy their skimboards and other products at their site. Be on the look out for this local company to do big things in the future
This guy has to be insane, straight lining it down sheets of ice to 'scare himself'. Never the less one of the best freeriders in the world. Think of this when your shredding all that early season ice. Recommend watching it full screen in HD with your speakers LOUD.
So stoked on this vid! Its one of those videos that reminds you how awesome snowboarding is, and why its so awesome. No energy drink bucks here, no bullshit, just a bunch of grown men acting like kids. Love this one. Drink Water!
So i just got home to Victoria for the christmas break and was greeted by a pleasant surprise. I guess blu finally decided to release the long awaited follow up to classic Below the Heavens. Apparently Blu and Exile recorded this in 09 i have no clue why the released it now, but who's complaining. I haven't had a chance to listen yet and while it will be almost impossible to live up to Below the Heavens i am more than stoked for this early christmas present from your boy blu.
2:07 of this video has to be one of the worst bails i've ever seen. Makes me sick to my stomach, can't believe he hits it again right after, huge props.
I haven't watched 13 O'Clock yet, but from these two parts it looks amazing. Definitely going to have to pick up a copy ASAP.
Okay so I'm going to be honest, it'll be hard not to be biased in my review of Kaleidoscope. Reason being, the entire isenseven crew showed us an unreal time at their Hamburg premiere. Long story short we had free drinks all night, the movie started at 2:30 in the morning, we ended up leaving around 5am and had to get a train to Amsterdam at 8:30 the next morning. Thanks so much Alex, Julia and the rest of the crew!
Anyways on with the review, expect the best style of riding from these european shredheads. Isenseven is easily the best crew out of germany and perhaps all of europe. Every year we expect next level riding from every crew. Iseneven gives us this matched with the best cinematography to date. Every riders intro will leave you mind boggled through creativity. Kaleidoscope is evenly split by pow, park and street riding. Being mostly a fan of powder and big mountain lines, Isenseven never disappoints. Even the park riding is full of style making it stand out amongst most bland park edits. Not to mention the movie is filled with great indie music, after watching Kaleidoscope your be left stoked on snowboarding and left with a long list of music to download. Two things every shredflick should do. Isenseven keeps it real, buy Kaleidoscope here or at board store near you.
|Rated 6 out 7 Abominable Snowmen|
|Kaleidoscope was directed, filmed and produced by Alex Schiller. THIS GUYYYYYY!|
