This is an awesome bit of vintage shred cinema. Released in 1994, The SCANDS features the first wave of Scandinavian snowboarders who exploded onto the scene and left a lasting mark. So sick.
This movie is full of riders who went on to become legends in snowboarding – it’s like a who’s who of early 90s shred talent: Injemar, Terje, Johan, Brushie, Franck… and after giving it a watch it’s tempting to say this was from when snowboarding was actually cool. It was certainly a more simple time. The focus on poking and shiftying the hell out is awesome to watch, although it seems landing wasn’t as necessary as it is today. At least punk rock tops metro pop any day of the week.
