Eiki Helgason’s Island Born Trailer 2016

Island Born is the latest project from Icelandic snowboarder, Eiki Helgason. The project is split into three sections: Zine, Full Part, and Documentary. In align with trying to keep each season different and fresh, Eiki decided to film his entire part in his home country of Iceland. He focused on traveling throughout the country, finding spots that have never been ridden before and got after it. Within the documentary section, Stan Leveille travels to Iceland to try and understand how a farm boy from Iceland became a world renowned snowboarder. Check it all out the trailer above.
