Korua Shapes are back with the highly anticipated latest edition to their ‘Yearning For Turning’ series. If going fast, getting low and getting your carve on is how you like to snowboard, you’ll absoloutely love this one.
In an industry where the biggest tricks and latest technologies are constantly being pushed to the top of our newsfeeds, it’s nice once in a while to be reminded that the simple things in snowboarding are worth celebrating just as much.
Korua Shapes have managed to capture this exact feeling with their Yearning For Turning series, which, presented in black and white, remove any possible distractions and present the viewer with snowboarding at its purest.
Vol. 4 is no excpetion, featuring Nicholas Wolken and co. getting low, using their edges, slashing pow at the side of the run, and making us really want to go snowboarding in the process. Shredding groomers has never looked this good!
From Korua: “Here it is! We’re excited to finally present STILL TURNING.
The help and support of friends is crucial in a project like KORUA Shapes. As a thank you, we organized a weekend camping adventure on a mountain pass that lies only minutes from some of Europe’s best resorts. Most guys showed up in camper vans, others simply planned to crash in the front seat of their cars. The idea was to spend some quality time in good company, enjoy a couple of beers, test out some new shapes and have as much fun as possible, all while filming a new edit along the way. Using the excuse of having to gather more footage, we ended up doing several more of these trips throughout the spring.”
