If our Hump Day with PJ Gustaffson last week taught us anything, it’s that Sweden is the promised land for snowboard careers. But because the Internet moves too damn fast in 2017, we’re gonna keep reminding you as often as reminders arise! Starting today (and through the end of the Internet) you can enjoy this a 12-minute long, self-produced movie entitled “Soft Impact” from Swedish-Sensation Nils Arvidsson RIGHT HERE.
The premise for the flick is as old as snowboard time: Boy-snowboard-genius breaks arm (twice.) Mean doctors say “NO MORE MEGA BOOTERS.” Boy says “FUCK IT! I’ll just fall into powder.” Boy calls up his awesome sponsors (Rip Curl, Nitro and Vans) other extremely radical friends with travel budgets and snowboard skills (Nate Johnstone, Markus Keller, Kareem el Rafie, Johan Rosen, Felix Engström) and they go on a bunch of dream trips across the globe meeting more friends (Ludwig Lejkner, Edwin Hed, Markus Östman, Jonas Wilhelmsson, Benny Urban, Jonas Wilhelmsson, Niklas Mattsson) along the way. They bring along the world’s best filmers (Grego Campi, Martin Campi, Pirmin Juffinger, Lowe Andersson, Niko Plakov, Johan Rosen, Kristoffer Fahlgren and Johannes Brenning) and more fun is had because falling into powder hurts less! Then they dump a bunch of the extra footy on a harddrive and give it to Lowe Andersson to edit in his spare time. THE RESULT: A fast, fun movie to enjoy!
