Oakley Press Release:
Snowboarding: For Me– a film that brings to life the unique relationship between its world-class snowboarding team and the sport and lifestyle they inhabit every single day. Each individual has his own story of how he began snowboarding, and how the sport, through countless hours of dedication and determination, changed his life – from its trailblazers to current and rising stars.
From the streets of Finland to the backcountry of British Columbia, from Norway to Japan, the film takes the viewer on a journey using state-of-the-art technologies and techniques. Snowboarding: For Me was shot over the 2013/14 season and couples archival and never-seen-before footage with moving testimonials about the sport and the way it has impacted the athletes' lives.
"I want to inspire people to go ride, be creative, be yourself, have fun," said style icon Nicolas Müller. "I know life is serious, but that's why we have snowboarding."
