Nils Arvidsson reacted by his doctor’s orders to steer clear of heavy slams last season (due to recurring problems with his arm) by producing Soft Impact – a movie charting his winter of avoiding brutalist park constructions and focussing on ripping pow with the boys.
Not that his injury really appeared to hold him back once he got in the deep snow – there’s still plenty of stylish jumping in this, along with the lines and party waves – and if anything it’s perhaps another note that a fun movie that hypes you to go shred doesn’t necessarily need riders hucking their carcasses off mega-sized park features.
“It’s by far not the craziest movie ever made,” he says, “but a movie that hopefully will get you stoked to go shred with your friends and have fun.” Nice work, Nils and co. Getcha Soft Impact on more often….
