Jack White knew what was up when he mapped out The White Stripes’ career path – keep it simple, keep it fresh. Everything they ever did was kept stripped back as far as possible, even down to their colour scheme: red, white and black.

When Nicholas Wolken and Stephan Maurer sat down to come up with Korua Shapes, the same thinking applied. White topsheets, red bases, boards designed and shaped to turn.

So when we ran into Nicholas wearing a jacket that matched his p-tex, in a blizzard, in Laax, the rest wrote itself. Hit play below to see it in motion, then scroll down for the stills. It’s snowboarding laid bare – just blood and snow.
