Watch the Grindhouse crew put down a slew of hammers in Talma, Finland.
For British crew 'The Grindhouse', travelling to different countries to film snowboarding is the really the only option.
This past winter, the crew ventured as far out as Minnesota and Helsinki, and although the Scandinavian winter didn't fully co-operate, offering slush puddles in the streets rather than soft powder landings, Talma's park in Finland offered some consolation: firm snow conditions and a solid rail setup.
Even though there was the worst snow in years for Scandinavia, Talma didn't let us down.
Watch Will Smith, Ollie Dutton, Andy Nudds and John Weatherley bring the heat to the ice-cold Finnish slopes, with hammer trick after hammer trick on a super fun looking setup. Keep your eye out for some trademark tech from Smith, including front blunt pretzels, switch back blunt 270s and back 2 fakies, buttery smooth sliding from Dutton and Weatherley and some textbook stompers from Nudds. If you pay close attention you'll also catch Grindhouse lenscrafter Jamie Durham getting the other side of the camera for once.
Stay tuned for the third full-length Grindhouse movie 'Hallucinate' dropping this fall. If the last one 'Mind Games' is anything to go by, it's going to be another world-class showcase of British urban snowboarding.
From Vimeo: It's almost impossible to not stop off at Talma when you are filming in Finland, even though there was the worst snow in years for Scandinavia, Talma didn't let us down. We stopped by in February to take a few laps, featuring riding from: Andy Nudds, Will Smith, John Weatherley, Ollie Dutton and Jamie Durham.
