We’re proud to present the first full length movie from Taco Trip – featuring Swedih heavy hitters Ludwig Lejkner, Jonathan Lindhe and Zebbe Landmark, tearing shit up with their homies. If you were one of the people who were sad that there was no Random Bastards movie this year, don’t miss this one!
After a dropping a series of webisodes last season, Taco Trip logged enough footage for a full-length movie, and if you’re down with heavy Scandi street-boarding, this is a must watch.
Featuring Ludde, Jonathan and Zebbe, along with Niels Schack, Sparrow Knox, Erik Karlsson, Niklas Mattsson and friends, this is a movie made by snowboarders, for snowboarders, and every minute of it, from the opening sequence to the credit roll, captures that.
Check the hype on Taco Trip from Onboard issue 147 (words: Tom Copsey):
When Swedish dudes Jonathan Lindhe, Zebbe Landmark, Ludde Lejkner and filmer Dennis Ylikangas discovered they shared a common goal to ‘do something different’, joining forces was a no-brainer and Taco Trip is the result. “The basic idea is to show people what we’re up to during the winter through the webisodes,” explains Dennis, “have as much fun as possible and then save all the A-shots for the movie, Buffet, that will drop for free this fall.”
With an initial core of Lejkner, Landmark and Lindhe taking care of the action, they soon added the formidable street smarts of Erik Karlsson to the roster and swept up Niels Schack, Sparrow Knox and Niklas Mattsson for a couple of shoots too. ““We invited Niels and Sparrow for a trip to northern Sweden which was ballin, and they killed it! We also have Erik Karlsson, he got some mad hammers, and Niklas will have some shots in the movie too – he killed the big jump in Åre. Everybody’s got different, SICK styles and everybody is hyped so it’s pretty damn sick crew,” grins Dennis of Buffet’s roster.”
Dennis was locked away editing when we spoke, so we were curious glean any info on the direction Buffet will take. “I’m a huge fan of all the old Technine movies,” he confirms, “and I get a lot of inspiration from all sorts of music but hip-hop in particular”. Indeed, from their teaser there’s a definite taste of the old F.O.D.T. vibe – albeit with a definite Scandinavian slant – and with Buffet set to drop ‘some time in October’ you won’t have long to wait to see the real deal. Who will Buffet appeal to? “If you like good music mixed with a handful of steezy good-looking dudes on snowboards who ride big, creative spots, then you won’t be disappointed,” Dennis claims.
And are their plans for a second serving? “Nothing’s written in stone,” explains Dennis, “but I don’t think Buffet is the last you’ll see from Taco Trip”. “Hopefully people will be stoked on the movie and we could get some more support, that would be sick!”
